Now children can recreate their favourite scenes from the Wonder Park film with these super cute Ferris Wheel and Flying Fish carousel playsets! Wonder Park is a 2019 animated adventure film, which was released on the 8th April. It tells the story of an amusement park, run by a group of animals, which is brought to life through the imagination of a little girl named June.
Ms C is very excited with these delightful, colourful playsets – they are so cheerful to look at! Besides these two playsets, Funrise Toys have also launched a number of soft toys, surprise packs and figurines to satisfy their fans!
First, let me show you this wonderful light-up Grand Wonder Ferris Wheel playset. It has always been Ms C’s dream to own a Ferris Wheel and now she can take her favourite Wonder Park figures for a ride in it! It comes with two exclusive figurines: Greta and Giraffe Chimp. Greta’s limbs are articulated whilst the Giraffe Chimp is a small solid figurine.
Putting the Ferris Wheel together was nice and straightforward, and it is immediately ready to be played. It comes with three bright stunning coloured plastic bowls which you can place your figures in. Then spin the wheel at the back to control the Ferris Wheel.
What I love about this playset is that it lights up via one of the buttons on the star panel and batteries are included! How cool is that, especially when you light it up in a dark room! It definitely has a wow factor! When I installed the Ferris Wheel, I didn’t check how easy/difficult to change the batteries on the star panel but looking at the back, it seems it could be a bit of a challenge unless I disassemble the whole frame. The overall materials of the Ferris Wheel do feel very plasticky but with careful play, it should last.
Next, I have the Wonder Park Flying Fish carousel playset, which is one of the most wondrous rides in Wonderland! There are a total of three detachable flying fishes that your figure can ride on. It comes with June and her Peanut doll. Again, it is so straightforward to assemble and is ready in seconds. It is lightweight and sturdy.
This carousel is bright and fun and will appeal to young children. Securing June on the flying fish is a bit of a challenge even though it does comes with a strap to keep her in. This ride only fits big figurines rather than those small figurines we received from the surprise pack. It is an interesting playset and it does spin by turning the top. The material is quite plasticky and as I mentioned earlier, if well looked after, it should last.
As for the Wonder Chimp Surprise 3 pack, there are 30 different Wonder Chimps to collect in Series 1! Each Wonder Chimp comes packaged with one on display and two hidden and can ride in its very own free-rolling coaster car. The coaster car comes with a lid for storage and it’s not just a car – it can be connected along with other packs to form a huge coaster for even more fun! The Chimps are small, solid and colourful.
Last but not least, we had the Greta Wonder Park Figure pack and each character comes with an iconic accessory from the film! There are June, Boomer, Steve, Peanut and Gus & Copper packs to be collected! Greta is dressed in her pink tutu and comes along with her key chain luggage bag with mirror! Greta’s tutu is removable and all her limbs are articulated.
These playsets are fun and my children are delighted to play with them. If your child loves the film and these characters, they will love these playsets to bring the magic home! Now you can get all these playsets from John Lewis stores, good toy retailers and online!
