SmartLab Toys Demolition Lab Triple Blast Warehouse
Do you remember when you were a kid and you built all sorts of towers and then got a really big kick out of knocking it down?
I know my siblings and I had a lot of fun with blocks building all sorts of monumental stacks and then getting a giggle out of knocking them over.
Well now you don't have to knock buildings over you can blow them up using blasters! I got the Demolition Lab Triple Blast Warehouse for one of my friend's children for his birthday and he is having a lot of fun with it.
As a matter of fact, I wanted to find out how it worked so he and I were the first ones to set up the "warehouse" and then we blew it up! Okay, I admit it; there is still a little kid in me!
The mind-blowing Demolition Lab lets kids build unlimited warehouse structures and then demolish them with strategically placed blasters, all while getting inside the science of energy, momentum and gravity
What I Like About The Demolition Lab Triple Blast Warehouse
This is actually supposed to be an educational toy and it certainly teaches kids the science of demolition. They have to know where to place the blaster in order for the action to take place and for the building to collapse.
There are about 100 pieces that you stack together, which by the way does take a little bit of time. Each panel (kind of like a deck of cards) has a clip that attaches to the next panel.
Once the building has been constructed, you set the blasters next to one of the cards. Then all you have to do is push the button, the blaster is "detonated" and down comes the building.
The cool thing about this game is that there is warning sound you can use, just like the construction crew does when they are imploding a building. However, unlike the real thing the panels do tend to fly all over the place.
Overall, this is a pretty simple game but the game offers hours of fun and I freely admit I had a whole lot of fun "playing" with the son of my friend.
Can we do it again!
Kids will love having another type of building to knock down with this 5-story building. It will take out all four of the walls at once. Your kids will have hours of fun "blowing" up the building.
