Matchbox Croc Escape Pop Up Adventure Set

Matchbox Croc GameMatchbox Croc Escape Pop Up Adventure Set: Mattel, ages 3+, MSRP $US21.99.

Well, if you have a small boy (not to exclude the girls because they do their fair share of under the furniture driving), then you have at least a few little matchbox cars that are very often vroom-ing around under the table. Not to mention up the chair legs, over your feet, and/or across the kitchen floor daily!

You might even be privy to the wonderful world of Matchbox Pop Up play sets already.

I say wonderful because they are great for travel, going to doctor appointments, shopping, play dates, and play in general. The whole play set pops out of its little box case, and after lots of play time cleanup takes literally 90 seconds.

Most of the sets are simple tracks with fun themes and a couple of hills or ramps, but the new Matchbox Croc Escape Pop Up Adventure play set goes all out. This Pop-Up play set combines great drive-around action with lights and sounds and a ferocious crocodile. The Croc eye glows and he roars! The Crew loved the startle of the croc suddenly springing at and chomping the truck. All track parts are connected, so there are none to lose. Matchbox Croc Escape Pop Up Adventure play set comes with one vehicle and loads of accessories, including a treasure chest. This set has more small pieces than the usual popup play set so you'll want to heed the age restriction for small parts.

Best of all, when play is done the set snaps together in seconds and fits neatly into your purse, diaper bag, carry on, or backpack.

Surprisingly all Matchbox vehicles do not work with this particular set. You can drive them around on the track, but they do not set off the Croc's antics. Matchbox Croc Escape Pop Up play set uses 3x 'AG13 LR44' button cell batteries, which are included.
