There’s nothing my 7 year old son likes to do more than smash things into each other and causes crashes. It thrills and delights him to cause chaos in his wake. I knew the Monster Smash-Ups Rhino would go down very well when it arrived here recently.
Aimed at children aged 3 years and over, there are three different machines to collect – Rhino, Viper and Raptor. Who will become the Monster Smash-Up champion? We had our money on Monster Smash-Ups Rhino.
The Monster Smash-Ups Rhino comes with an eight piece Duplo like vehicle, four flags, four bollards, a driver, controller, sticker sheet, USB charger sniff instruction leaflet. You will require 2 X AA batteries to operate the Monster Smash-Ups Rhino.
Follow the instructions to charge the vehicle, which takes between 90-120 minutes.
When the first off charge is completed use the sticker sheet to customise the vehicle and add the chequered flags to the flagpoles. Put the flagpoles on top of the bollards to set up your raceway. Put your driver in his seat and ready, steady, go!
Use the controller to steer the Monster Smash-Ups Rhino but watch out! If you crash into something your driver is likely to be ejected from his seat! No seat belts in this game.
The Monster Smash-Ups Rhino features tilt and turn suspension and it really does whizz around. The vehicle is rebuildable, so if parts fall off in a crash, it’s very easy to rebuild.
There’s a 20 metre range on the controller and you should get about 20 minutes of run time to one charge. For added fun, if you have two Monster Smash-Ups Vehicles together, just make sure you sync them separately (follow the instructions) then you can race against each other.
My son has had plenty of fun with his Monster Smash-Ups Rhino and I think it would make a great gift for any young petrol head.
