My son loves his machines, whether they are planes, trains or automobiles, really it makes no difference. He loves creating imaginary worlds with lots of action and adventures. He’s recently received a couple of Havex Machines to add to his play scenarios.
Aimed at children aged 6 years and over the Havex Machines are a range of collectibles with a difference. We received the Sonic Jet and Star Blaster sets. Race, Transform, Battle as you race the little micro cars into the machines and watch them transform.
I have to be totally honest, I wasn’t entirely sure the micro cars would cut it with my 7 year old son, but I was so wrong. He loves how easily he can play with each machine and how as soon as he puts the car inside, the machine transforms. There have been all sorts of intergalactic warfare going on in my living room over the last few weeks. The Havex Machines have been rather a big hit here.
We have found that the Star Blaster is slightly trickier to transform before placing the micro car inside. The instructions are easy to follow, with each part clicking into place but make sure you push the blue ramp back correctly or things won’t click into place correctly through the transformation. But other than that, once you’ve transformed the vehicles once, it’s quite easy to remember what you have to move where.
My son definitely gives the Havex Machines a big thumbs up.
