Air Toobz from Tomy incoming

Starter set

Created by the Fat Brain company these new Air Toobz have enjoyed success in the US, think marble run with giant tubes, soft(ish) balls, all interconnected to your own design and then an air machine to flick on and get the action underway. Trouble is, the price. The start-up set (with air blower) comes in at £140 and whilst performs a few nice tricks we can;t see how price-per-play will ever stack up. If buying “big gifts” and budget isn;t a huge issue then do go right ahead, its a good toy don;t get us wrong, its just a lot of dollar. Expansion packs are incoming too, a few extra bits making it more worth the while for another £60. So, go shoot foam balls, build big and marvel (for a few minutes) as it performs.
