Ever try to reach a box of cereal on the top shelf but find yourself just shy of an inch too short? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could stretch your body to any length you needed? Knowing me, I’d just use that power to get the remote off of the end table, but we can’t all be superheroes, can we?
The Incredibles 2 Power Couple, from Jakks Pacific, allows the superpowerless to harness their inner crime-fighting proclivities. With this interactive action figure set designed for children ages 4 and up, anyone can enjoy getting in on the heroic action.
Mr. and Mrs. Incredible are, well, incredible, as partners in both life and crime—making them the ultimate power couple. Fans of the Disney•Pixar duo can use the Mr. Incredible action figure and the bendy Elastigirl together to defeat their enemies.
Mr. Incredible’s arms lift up and lock into position so that Elastagirl’s fists can fit into his open grip. Then, Elastagirl is pulled back and propelled toward the cardboard villains. Instead of using a bowling ball, Elastagirl will barrel down her enemies and The Incredibles will reign victorious.
Like real superhero work, it will take a few times to get the hang of what positions work the best and which direction holds the truest aim but the payoff is loads of fun. It’s common to get a little dirty when you’re out saving the world.
Elastagirl’s colorful rubber material smudges a little after extended use but that’s just tangible proof of her awesome crime-fighting skills. The Incredibles Power Couple 2 is the perfect toy for fans anxiously awaiting the sequel to the 2004 hit movie or for anyone who enjoys interactive toys. Kids can play separately, together, or by taking turns to see who can nab the most villains.
While it’s an exciting product for kids, parents will also enjoy the lessons it instills about teamwork, communication, and cooperation, as well as the development of coordination and reflexes. Younger kids will especially delight in all of the fun sounds as Mr. Incredible features more than 45 sounds to aid kids in their newfound heroism.
