Toy Insider Associate Editor Madeleine Buckley joined Arizona Midday on NBC Phoenix to show off some new space toys that will take playtime to infinity… and beyond! For more on the items featured in this segment, check out the product notes below.
Kids can build a 2.5-foot tall rocket with four levels, including a flight deck and an engine room. The 245-piece set includes plastic connectors and panels, two astronaut figures, and space-themed accessories. The entire set is waterproof and washable.
Circuit Explorer combines simple circuits and big imaginations! Construction play meets electrical engineering in this snap together building system that comes in three different playsets! Kids line up the circuitry graphics on the oversized pieces and snap them together to build a fully powered, large-scale, space-themed world. Connect the pieces to make out-of-this-world custom, light-up, builds. Then, launch into hours of screen-free, pretend-play fun with the included astronaut and robot figures! This playset includes a Deluxe Base Station with towers, a rotating diner sign, a planetarium with a color-changing dome, a voice synthesizer that includes 10 space sounds, a Communication Station with a rotating Radar Dish, and one fully-powered Space Rover and a free rolling Rover, both with Light up headlights.
Families work together in this cooperative strategy game to get to the moon and back. One player acts as Mission Control while the others play as astronauts. Resolve flight stages, repair systems, and complete experiments.
Players will face off to see who can abduct three Cosmic Cows first. Roll the dice to determine the movement of the cow figurines, then must pull the cows toward their spaceship or away from their opponents. The first player to collect three cows in their zone is the winner.
Kids learn about planets, stars, eclipses, meteors, and more when they create a colorful and full-scale solar system. Features 20 ready-to-go experiments with items from the box and with common household finds. Other STEAM kits include Paper Flowers, Liquid, and Gross which teach through water-based experiments.
Build to battle with the largest and most heavily armed Snap Ship. Follow the instructions to create two different crafts using 124 interchangeable pieces, including an action-ready UJU piece. Includes two pilot figures.
