My 3 year old newest obsession has been the ever popular teenage mutant ninja turtles (TMNT) so naturally we bought him several different toys, accessories and figurines associated with the phenomenon. My sons collection included each individual turtles weapon and colored mask. Naturally he was missing the coveted turtle shell. My son is 35 lbs and 38 inches tall, the adjustable straps around his arms fit him well as it was tightened to the Max, the strap around the hip was a bit too big but nothing that looks awkward or cheap. The Velcro is strapped overlapping one another to remain intact. I think this shell creates and allows children to adapt to their imagination! They transform into one of their beloved characters from TMNT. I liked that the straps were adjustable so my son can grow into this turtle phase. It is not poorly made, in fact I feel like it will last him a handful of years. There are two spaces provided in the back of the shell that can fit at least two different TMNT weapons. The storage spaces can move 360 to leave it in a vertical or horizontal position allowing easier access for combat play. The only complaint that I have about this product is that for the TMNT lover it is impossible to fit all 4 of the turtles weapons into one shell at the same time. You could fit up to two weapons and have your child carry the other two if necessary. Problem solver would be to purchase another shell but then again maybe your child won't be as obsessed as mine! Happy playing!

My 7 year old son was extremely happy to receive this toy. I'm not sure if they sell differenct shells to fit the different TMNT weapons. The shell I purchsed fit Raphael's sais perfectly. It is very durable and is great for imaginative play. The downfall is that he was not able to reach behind him to replace or pull out the sais from the shell. Although, the shell can also be used as a shield (there is a handle on the back side) he really wanted it to be like a ninja and use and replace the weapons when "play fighting." For that reason I gave it 2 stars. The poor design doesn't allow my son to play with it the way it is intended to work. He doesn't want to play with it since he cannot use it as a ninja. Another con is that the shell is a bit on the small side. The shell did fit my 7 year old son perfectly. However he is one of the smaller kids in his class.

Comments about Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle - Turtle Shell:
The shell is nice but the strap to go around the kids waist does not work for smaller children. It is made for the older kids. My son is almost three and was so excited to get it but sadly it does not stay on well because of the waist strap. Also, the place in the back where you put the weapons is hard for them to turn around and reach to get them out. He has decided to no longer use the shell and just out the weapons in the back of his shirt as it works better but doesn't look as cool. Not impressed overall.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Fun to play with and pretend your a real ninja turtle!
We bought this for a birthday present and the 4 year old little boy loved it. He put it on his back and was running around with it. Easy to adjust and wear. Great for the imagination!
Love this product. My nephew is happy!
