Like the Stellosphere, the Mission Rover is sturdy and durable. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this as a mother. I am constantly finding broken toy pieces around the apartment. I don't expect to see many broken Mission Rover parts. The toy is appropriate for younger children as there are only a few small pieces (4 space instruments) that are non essential to play. The instruments can be taken away and hidden until the child reaches an appropriate age.
The Mission Rover opens up to reveal a mobile space lab. Miles and his family easily fit into the lab and can run experiments on space rocks and foreign objects. The Mission Rover has two cool robotic arms that can move in different directions. One arm can blast away space jun with its flash beam launcher and the other arm can pick up the debris for inspection.
Logan really liked the green Terra Skiff which rolls off he back of the Mission Rover to help Miles explore exotic locales such as Mars.
The Mission Rover retails for $39.99 and will provide your child with many hours of interesting and imaginative play time.
