At 18" long, this aircraft carrier is a great size. It is plenty big to play with, yet not so large as to be difficult to store. It is durable, and the parts that are removable snap back easily into place.The 6 diecast planes are 1" to 1 1/2" long. They are tiny, but in good proportion to the carrier.
If you are giving this toy to a child who loves planes, it will surely be a hit. It is recommended for ages 3 and up, and will be attractive to the 7 or 8 year old as well. Realistic jet sounds help build excitement and the tiny planes are great for hand-eye coordination. The carrier will float in pool or tub, but remember to remove the battery and expect to sacrifice the sound capability if you choose to use it in water.
