Have you heard of Zak Storm? Zak is a teenager who is suddenly engulfed by a huge wave and finds himself in the Bermuda Triangle. He is suddenly the captain of the ship called The Chaos and along with a group of misfits he must travel across the Seven Seas of the Triangle to try and find a way home.
There are a large range of toys and merchandise to accompany the TV series (on POP and Netflix) and we were sent the Zak Storm Hover Vehicle (RRP £14.99) to check out and review.
This speedy hover vehicle comes with a figure, a hover board and a collectable coin. For added play-ability and storytelling fun there are packs of coins that can be purchased separately with scannable codes on them which enable the player to receive digital rewards adding to the experience. The app is available via both the Android store and Apple store making it accessible to all phone users. Younger players will need an adults help to download the app.
What did we like?
- We loved that you can expand on the game play by linking in with the app and the coins, it is a great feature and Alfie loved this!
- There is a whole series of toys that can be purchased to complete the Zak Storm range. From figures, to play sets they make great little gifts.
- It's bright, colourful and appealing and Alfie loved the added extra of it being a missile launcher.......of course!
- Alfie loves toys that link in with a TV show and this is no exception, he is quite happy to entertain himself with it pretending he is Zak Storm and spends ages playing with it.
Anything we're not so keen on? As always, I pride myself on being honest when writing reviews and there were a couple of small things we were not so positive about.
- The price, I have to be honest I think the RRP of £14.99 is pretty steep for what it is.
- It appears to be a bit flimsy and the figure included is pretty small so I would advise this is definitely not suitable for children younger than 3 years old.
Overall a good little toy and Alfie has spent alot of time playing with it so I feel even though the cost is a little steep he has had the moneys worth.The added extra of the coins and playing with the app is great though and this toy would absolutely appeal to any Zak Storm fan.
