What our experts think
This Pokemon toy is a great addition to play and our testers let their imagination run wild when incorporating it with other toys from the range. We liked the way that the toy promotes active play as the children were encouraged to throw the ball and this resulted in them running around. Whilst playing, there were lots of opportunities for storytelling which enables children to develop language and communication, in addition to personal and emotional skills in acting out and making sense of scenarios they may have encountered.
The figure was very detailed and the children enjoyed it’s resemblance to the character from the TV programme, the children could also reenact the battles they had seen in the animated series. The toy also has a nice additional feature that encourages group play and turn taking – when the Pokeball pops open, it features different faces like a dice, and the player whose ball lands with the most stars facing up wins.
