Review of Angry Birds Go! Telepods Pig Rock Raceway Set10:30 AM
My kids are Angry Birds fanatics. In addition to owning all the apps, some stuffed toys, and other Angry Birds themed merchandise, we had an Angry Birds birthday party last year for my son. Every time we get the opportunity to review an Angry Birds item, I say YES, YES, YES! I know it will thrill the kids, and I love watching them get exciting with the "review process."
This time, we were blessed to try out the Angry Birds Go! Telepods Pig Rock Raceway Set. Like the other Telepods sets, the toy allows the kids to play as a toy or as a component to an app on the iPad. The last Telepods set we tried ended up being used more in the app. This one, however, has been used primarily as a way to take up all the space on our living room floor. They love it!
Setting up the "raceway" didn't take as much time as I thought it would; the kids are pretty mechanically inclined. They race the two included cars down the track with the goal of knocking down the bad pigs. I hear them giggling the whole time they play; it's quite adorable!
The game can also be used within the app, which can be downloaded from the iTunes store. I'm sure, when the newness of the physical racing feature wears off a bit, they'll ask to play the app more. For now, however, I'm happy that they are happy with the "toy" portion of the product. It will be like getting a new toy when they switch over to using the telepods within the app! It's like 2 toys in one.
