Review: TMNT Flingers


Back in the 1990’s one of the coolest toys ever hit the market.  It was known as the Pizza Thrower, a cool ride the Turtles could sit on that would shoot pizzas.  This remains one of my favorite toys from my childhood as I have my original and recently bought up another one.  Since that toy was such a hit, Playmates has released other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys that shoot pizza, bringing us the set that I am reviewing here.  This is the TMNT Flingers from Sewer Lids, sais, bo staffs and pizzas, these Turtles do not hold onto their weapons for long.  Here’s my thoughts on Flinger Michelangelo, Flinger Donatello, Flinger Raphael, and Flinger Leonardo.

These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles flinger toys all have their own personalities built right into them.  With Michelangelo and Leonardo shooting weapons at any bad guy who comes near, Donatello and Raphael will throw their weapons to help take down the Foot.  As the box says, mowing down the Foot Clan.  Check out my video to see my thoughts on these action turtles.

While I do like the features, I think they’re a little too hard to work the way they have them.  Not all kids are playing on smooth surfaces with no scratches.  Would be cool if the toy could work on carpet and other type of play areas as well.  I have tested the features on better surfaces since this video and they do work just great.  Only wish that I could of shown it better on film.

Hope that this video helps people with deciding on cool gift ideas for this Holiday season!  We got a lot more to come before Christmas.
