Welcome to a new world of endless “Popabilities!”

2 'n 1 Vehicles:

Our family recieved one of these play-sets.  Bryan calls it his "six flags" because, well, it looks like Six Flags rides.  He loved it so much that after an hour of playing with it for the first time, we were going to be heading to a friends house to swim in their pool and he refused to go...without his 'six flags.' So like any good mother, you know keeping good boundaries, I told him he could play with it when we returned.  Then I held my ground.  Wait, no, I didn't. I had one of the older boys carry the play-set to the car while I toted all our swimming stuff and Bryan gripped the pal for the play-set for dear life, lest one of his brother attempt to play with it.
My older boys were a little disturbed by the roller-coaster part.  You put your pal in the roller-coaster car and push it down the big hill...and then it flies off and were it real your pal would most definitely be maimed if not killed.  However, Bryan found this even more hysterical because of their reactions to it.  

The play-set pal comes with a set of arms, so she can be a brave roller-coaster rider with her arms in the air.  A pair of arms holding a large mallet for the strength game (which makes a noise like the real games).  And a pair of pop on shorts.  Bryan wasn't really into the pop on stuff at all, but the other boys liked switching her up depending on what she was doing.
And they all loved the ability to make the ferris wheal ans boat ride go.  On the side is a lever that you can switch between the two ride and then a lever that you push down to make the selected ride move.  And of course there is carnival music to go with it!

Overall, we love the Amusement Park playset.  If I changed it, I would have liked to have an additional pal for it.  It would helped lessen the fighting in our house.  So I'm sure we'll be picking up one of the mix n match packs for some more pals.
