Do you have a little super spy in your life? If so, I know the PERFECT holiday gift. Playmobil offers their Top Agents set which includes a spy vehicle that can work with a Wireless Spy Camera and Remote. All of these items are sold seperately. I love that they can be played with individually, or added on to your set to enhance the fun later. I know this gift will absolutely thrill any little guy (or girl) on Christmas morning.
I had a chance to try out the Wireless Spy Cam, Remote and Robo Gang Truck. We were able to get playing right away with the helpful tutorials online. Playmobil offers a great site that describes step by step how to get your camera working on your PC, how to record a movie with You Tube and save movies on your computer. Once the car was assembled, set up was really a snap and we were able to get started right away. My son and my husband had so much fun “spying” on the rest of the family using their new toy. I found the video quality to be surprisingly good and the remote control feature was so much fun. The remote control had a long range, so they were able to easily navigate the truck all around the house without losing the signal. I anticipate that this will be one toy that will be around for a long time. With the help of their dad, even the little ones were able to get in on the action.
Here is some information about the Spy Cam:
The Top Agents Spy Camera Set includes a camera with a USB port, a color monitor and a bracket.
The video shot from the camera is displayed on the monitor via wireless transmission. Connect the Top Agents Spy Camera Set to your PC to save your movie, or publish your movie on YouTube.
We were able to make a You Tube video easily. For us, this was the best part! My little guy just loves to pretend he is in the movies, so this was perfect for him.
My Final Impressions:
Although the truck and remote are fun to play with alone, I find that the wireless Spy Cam is what really makes this set special. I would highly recommend purchasing the entire set at once to get the most out of this toy. The Spy Cam aspect of this toy really functions well and is user friendly. Not only will your kids have a blast playing with this toy around the house, but they will have fun making their own movies and sharing them on You Tube with family and friends. The assembly of the truck is a little cumbersome for younger kids and has lots of small pieces. Mom and dad may need to help with assembly here, but it shouldn’t take more than 1/2 and hour. I have always loved Playmobil’s line of products and this one doesn’t disappoint. This would be a great gift for a child over the age of 7.
One reader will win a Playmobil Top Agents Spy Cam, Remote and Robo Gang Truck!
