With four boys under our roof, it's safe to say we're extremely well acquainted with the Imaginext range of toys. We've been buying this line for years, and these high quality playthings are still very much a big deal in our younger boys' lives.
In fact, the very first 'big kid toy' I purchased for my eldest son when he was just a toddler, was from the Imaginext range. I remember this well, because it was he who selected it all by himself at the store. We still have it too, only it's now part of a super collection that we've built on over the years.
That's what I've always liked most about the Imaginext range; it has all the hallmarks of a multi-generational toy. These are quality toys that you can build on year after year, child after child.
We're planning on keeping the lot for our own kids' kids!
If you're a fan of Imaginext, or yet to discover the appeal of this range, stay tuned for an informative review coupled with a super giveaway at the end of this post!
Oh boy our Taity was crazy-excited when I told him he was to receive this fantastic Imaginext DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City for review from our friends at Warner Bros. Consumer Products!
A big title yes, and a whopping big toy!

First box ticked - it's impressively sized!
After unboxing and setting-up DC Super Friends, Super Hero Flight City, (available at Target), the fun began immediately. (There's a small bit of adult assembly to undertake with a screwdriver and some batteries required, but overall, a cinch.)
Taite got started straight away with the set's two included popular action heroes - Batman and Superman.
There was some friendly sparring on top of the Daily Planet tower...
...Followed by some serious discovery and adventure to be had within this humongous playset's action-packed features!
There are an enormous array of things to do in DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City, to keep kids entertained and using their imaginations - forever!
DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City is actually two playsets in one - Gotham City and Metropolis. Both are connected by a thrilling Flight Tower which does some very fancy stuff. (More on that one in a minute.)
For fighting Super Villains, Metropolis, (where Clark Kent - Superman, works diligently at the Daily Planet), is kitted-out with appealing features to repel evil intruders. There's even a jail for baddies like Lex Luther.
When Superman spins on his roof-top Power Pad, he reveals the repelling LexCorp launcher. (Lex Luther is sold separately.)
Da, Da, Da, Daaaaah!

Out spits a lethal dart!
Metropolis WILL survive another day.
To make the action even more riveting for young kids, this play set comes with a Flight Tower.
The Flight Tower is both a platform to connect the two cities, and a fantastic adventure feature in itself.
Clip either Batman or Superman into the flight pack and he can monitor the levels of peace below - or combat crime with an aerial advantage. This kid-cool component offers an exciting 360 degree Super Hero flight around the playset! It works like a remote, with your child having the ability to determine how fast, slow, high or low the Super Hero on duty actually flies. (Note that we didn't have the batteries fitted at the time these pictures were taken, so my son is shown manually operating this feature.)
Next stop, Batman's Gotham City.
Notice how Batman's Bat-Signal lights up, complete with power sounds? So much fun!
Gotham City is also suitably armed for action against unfriendly invaders.
On this side of town, kids can fire discs at opponents. (Batman and The Joker can 'have it out' here. Note that The Joker is sold separately.)

Both parts of the Flight City playset have fun features to offer inside as well. There are ladders, trapdoors that work in conjunction with the Flight Tower, prisons, moveable doors, elevators and crime-fighting essentials like Batman's computer.
Mountains of adventures are just waiting to unfold in DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City.
Our ten and eight year old sons think this is the best toy ever! (Taite also thinks this might be the biggest toy he's ever owned too.)
Imaginext DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City is available at Target stores Australia-wide and retails for $149.99. The recommended age range for this toy is three to eight year olds. This set offers kids fabulous quality and it's one of those special toys that you can continue to add-on to over the years, providing a great deal of joy long into the future.
So with Christmas fast approaching, head to Target to check out DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City for your kids.
