I remember watching Scooby Doo when I was a child and whilst the picture on screen may have got a little clearer I love the fact that the stories and characters are all still basically the same!
At age 7 James has recently got in to watching Scooby Doo so when we were given the opportunity to review a new Scooby Doo toy I knew James would love it.
The new Stretchy Scooby Doo is the same recognizable Scooby Doo character but with a twist, he can be stretched up to 3x his original size and still ping back to normal. It still features all of Scooby's classic features such as his blue collar and scared face.
From his neck down every part of stretchy Scooby doo can be stretched out of shape, he can even be tied up in knots and he still returns to his original shape and size! I have to admit I was apprehensive as to whether Scooby would actually return to his original shape without some signs of stretching or sagging from the stretching but I was wrong! Scooby pinged back to shape within seconds of stretching with no signs of him being stretched at all.
Stretch Scooby Doo is aimed at children aged 5+ which I would say is fairly accurate. Whilst Evelyn (aged 2) enjoyed playing with Scooby it can be quite tough to get him to stretch and so this part wasn't suitable for her. James is almost 7 and was able to stretch Scooby himself though so it is definitely doable for a child. It may require an adults help though if you wanted to really stretch him out!
Over all James loves the stretch Scooby Doo and thinks its great fun trying to stretch him a little more each time he plays with him or twist, stretch and knot him in different ways! He is currently priced at £19.99 and you can find out more or purchase your own Stretchy Scooby via the Character Website.
Do your kids watch Scooby Doo or do you remember watching it growing up?
