When the boys were little they were obsessed with cars, Toy Story and dinosaurs – we seem to have bypassed the Stretch Armstrong revolution completely so when the opportunity came up to trial the new 7 inch mini Stretch they were eager to give him a go! None more so than Amelia of all people! I am in no way into buying gender specific toys so was eager to see her reaction to a stretchy man in just his underpants as opposed to her usual choice of princesses in floaty dresses!
On arrival our mini Stretch Armstrong looks a little like a mini boxed weight lifter with muscles that stretch to over 5 times their original size!
Super Strong! Super Stretchy! Stretch Armstrong can stretch over 5 X his original size! Grab hold and stretch his arms, legs and torso. Release and Stretch retracts back to his normal size and shape. You can also tie him in knots!
We were super impressed with how quickly he whips back into shape after being stretched beyond belief, the new host of friends too including Scooby Doo and a long legged octopus.
You can have all the fun of pulling and stretching Armstrong and his friends yourself as they are available from all good toy stores and retail at only £10.99 each.
Overall the girls had so much fun tying him in knots and doing acrobatics with him to see who could twist and pull him the furthest, the fascination hasn’t worn off and they are still playing with him over a week later – the toys are usually discarded within a few days so he gets a huge thumbs up from us for the novelty factor!
We were sent a Mini Stretch Armstrong for the purposes of this review. All views and opinions are our own and genuine.
