I know the age rating on this is age 4 and a little older but my 10 year old just LOVES this Matchbox Elite Rescue Wave Cruiser and i will be the first to admit i was a little nervous at first due to the age rating but boy was I wrong, it is now his new all time favorite bath toy! Its great for both boys and girls who prefer cars and boats and toy action, This wave cruiser came well packaged with a manta ray, boat, little matchbox car and a flying net which is set on the boat and is launched to catch the manta ray in action! The manta ray is big enough to swallow the matchbox car while trying tonot get caught from the boat chasing after it. The boat came with a net that can be launched numerous times and was super easy to set up, it took only seconds after getting it out of the package to have it all set up. The boat had a band to removeon the top of it to lift the top part of the boat for launching of the net and then the band was set under the launcer piece/ pad of the boat so it has a range of motion for when its hot in action while crusing the ocean or body of water with your little one! It has very viberant colors and well made. My child has had it almost two weeks now and so far that is almost 14 baths full of fun and it is just the same as when we took it out of the package, no fading no broken pieces and none of the stickers have peeled or started to peel off. As I stated above it is very easy to set up and use . I feel as though even a child as young as 2.5 could use and control such a toy but also it has enough action for a 10 year old as well. This toy is well worth every penny and would buy another if my child wanted or lost this one. We have had no problems with the band but would recommend possibly just having there be a back up one in the package just in case something happened or the band was durable enough so there would be a back up as well all know things happen and some plastic bands just are not very durable I received this product for free in exchange for my honest well written review.

My son loved being able to play with this toy in and out of the bath. I feel it's fairly durable but I'm wondering about the rubber band that is the net launcher. It can be easily removed and I'm worried about it getting lost or stretching out of shape. Otherwise the toy seems great! The manta ray is a big hit at my house!

    Comments about Mattel 1001134 Matchbox Elite Rescue Wave Cruiser Vehicle:

    My grandson picked this out, we were actually in the store to find a Hot Wheels crane to add to his collection and to buy a new Christmas book.
    But, one look at this toy on the shelf and finding a crane was no longer a priority. As soon as we got home he wanted to take a bath so he could play with this toy in the water. Once out of the water he played with it on the floor and in the kitchen sink until he reluctantly had to go when mom showed up.

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Matchbox Elite Rescue Wave Cruiser Vehicle:

      This was a gift for my nephew, who is 4. He is obsessed with Batman and has every toy on the planet! Which is why I was fascinated when he picked out this non-superhero toy, which was only $15(approx)... which fits my budget perfectly! Haha! There is a small yellow ring that comes with it that easily could be thrown out if you don't read the directions. It has to be snapped over two pieces on the top to create a slingshot-effect with the net. Other than that, no small parts to be lost. Everything goes together. I also used this as a tool to teach him about sea life (manta rays) and science (research expedition, and a 101 on engineering for pre-k). It's tubby-safe as well!!

          My 5 year old son asked to purchase this item 3 months ago, but we were on vacation and figured we could wait until we returned home. Well he didn't forget about it as he reminded us while walking through the aisles at TRU recently. He has been having a good time playing with this toy.

            My little guy loves this playset. The manta is a hit! The only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars is because it comes with a rubber band that attaches to the boat. That will be lost!
