Pros: lots of fun to this little toy
Cons: may be too small for some
Dizzy is one of the machines in Bob the Builder's collection of vehicles. Bob uses Dizzy to mix the cement in Bob-ville. This die cast vehicle was my daughter's and has now become my son's and it has provided hours of great fun!
Dizzy is a bright orange cement mixer. This die cast vehicle is about 4 inches long and about 2 inches hgh. It is about the size of a Matchbox car and is perfect for packing up and taking places, hence the name "take alongs."
Dizzy's cute eyes and face are on the front of the vehicle, giving her the personality she has in the show. Her front wheels move like they do in the show. She has 4 small black wheels on the main part and 4 more on the attached trailer. The tailer is included with Dizzy and attaches via magnet.
Dizzy is a very useful vehicle in the Bob the Builder set of vehicles. My son likes to dump the cement out and put it back in again. He often pretends he is pouring cement for the foundation of a building he is building. The magnet on the back of Dizzy is perfect for the trailer or for one of hte other vehicles to attach to. Often, my son uses Lofty's crane to attach to Dizzy and pull her along.
This Take Along Dizzy is perfect for taking along to many places. Since it is small, it is portable and can be taken in a backpack on short trips. My son will take several of these vehicles with him and then play quietly with them whever we go. They definitely entertain him as he acts out parts of the shows he's watched or makes up his own stories.
This toy needs no batteries, just an imagination for fun! It has held up quite well over years of play. It is probably around 8 years old and though it has not been played with continuously all of that time, it has been played with a lot over the past year and a half. The toy still looks new and is not scratched or messed up in any way. The bright orange color makes Dizzy stand out in a pile of toys and my son is often attracted to it. I love how he uses his crativity when playin with this and the other Bob the Builder Take Along vehicles
Iwould recommend this toy for any Bob the Builder fan or any child who likes construction vehicles. It is small but it has a lot of fun to it. The magnets are a great added touch to this toy.
