Grown boy and I have been reviewing a really exciting toy from Character Building that we both agree would make a great Christmas present for any footy fan. I give you the Sport Stars Football Pitch and Play Set.
The Sport Stars range is a football construction range of toys depicting the world’s best players from the English Premier League’s top teams. There are so many famous faces from the world of football from clubs including Manchester United, Liverpool F.C., Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea F.C. and Arsenal F.C. Each figure’s head is 3D and digitally sculpted so these mini-figures match their real-life counterparts. Players can build their fantasy dream teams or replay great match moments.
The players are highly collectible and each one comes in a foil bag at £1.99 each. The Pitch and Play Set comes with 3 mystery players and the pitch as shown. Grown boy loved building the pitch and both he and Middle Miss had a whale of a time playing against each other with their small-but-perfectly-formed teams.
I really do like collectible toys that can be built on and added to, and I would recommend this set to parents with football fans to buy for. I do think it could have come with more players seeing as the set is around £20 because it did seem a bit limited - the kids didn't seem to mind though, and thoroughly enjoying playing with it.
