As a parent I have great confidence in Fisher Price as a toy manufacturer, having spent many of my own childhood years playing with their durable, beautiful products. In fact, when the boys visit either set of grandparents, the toys they play with are Fisher Price toys from my own or their Dadda’s past.
The Mickey Mouse Fly ‘n’ Slide Clubhouse arrived at the perfect time, being days away from leaving to visit the big cheese himself! Our postman delivered the parcel whilst we were still in our pyjamas and so after unpacking, I managed to wrangle Baby Dragon out of his, but Our Little Adventurer was far too busy apparently.
The set is comprised of a clubhouse, a table, two chairs, a see saw and a little airplane. Mickey and Minnie are also included. It was very simple to assemble with a few snap-on parts. Opening and assembly time was around three minutes.
The “Fly”part of the clubhouse was far and away Lyoto’s favourite part. A little plane with Minnie Mouse in to push around? Yes please.
To use the “slide” part, Mickey and the gang pop through the trapdoor on top of the Clubhouse…
….and out of the Toodles door, down the slide, which actually works. So many slide toys aren’t actually slides, but Minnie zipped down the green chute very well.
The little purple see saw was sweet.
This toy is perfect for playing side by side….although naturally there was the inevitable power-struggle for the Big Cheese himself.
Baby Dragon looks wistfully on…
