This play set brings the characters from Batman alive with lots of fun options. There is a drawbridge for the batmobile, an elevator, a jail with an escape hatch and much more to keep your little super heroes entertained. A fabulous feature that I really appreciate is that it can all be folded up and neatly put away when not in use...thank you Fisher Price! Each Batcave comes with the following accessories: batman, robin, batcycle, console, satellite dish, antenna, two batarangs and a bathook. There are also many, many smaller accessory sets which include all your favorite villains (penguin, joker and riddler are a few we have).
My guys are on the younger side of the suggested age group (3-7) but they definitely enjoy this toy and are able to use all the "bells and whistles" associated with it. I can also see definite staying power with this toy and could easily see it being a favorite for at least a couple more years. I think this was $50 well spent. The set is made up of a very durable plastic which has already withstood many tumbles in our house. I would strongly suggest picking up a few of the accessory pieces because this toy is way more fun if your Batman can take on one of the bad guys. This one earns a strong recommendation from this mom of two budding superheroes!
