Great toy!!! Aug 25, 2009
By The Walkers
"Mother of 3"
This is a great toy but the price from this seller is insane!!! Toys r us is much much cheaper.
* It is pretty large which makes it great for two little ones to play with it at the same time
* The sound effects are realistic
* Durable - with a 3 and 4 year old it has mantained working order. Though the front closure on the shuttle sometimes gets popped off from pressure if it is left upon upon play.
* It lights up... what little guy doesn't like that!
* Lots of places on the shuttle to stick little figures.. only wish it came with more than 2!
* The sound effects are loud... almost offensive but not fully blow your ears out... but close!
* Not enough men and such to it. This big station and ship and only 2 little men and an alien... needs more!
* It is hard for our boys (3 & 4) to put the shuttle on its little holder. Not really a fault of Fisher Price... not alot of options to have a base that holds it into place

Great Space Shuttle and realistic sounds... Aug 05, 2009
By Bladen's Mommy
My son got this for his 4th birthday and absolutely loves it. He picked it out himself. It lights up like a real space ship would, it has realistic sounds when it's docking or taking off. It is very durable and just a wonderful addition to any imaginext set. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys playing with the Imaginext toys. We have so many Imaginext items and they are all built so well. They even have some girly Imaginext-like people by Fisher Price now=)

Ohh the fun we can have with Imaginext... Dec 30, 2009
By T. Distaso
Imaginext really has some of the most durable play toys out there today.
THis shuttle is so nicely made, realistic look and sounds.
In fact that might be one of the drawbacks though. When it does the Space shuttle BEEEP BEEP BEEP, it really isn't something I think that appeals to younger kids or draws them in.
My 2 1\2 year old son received this and the Imaginext boat for Christmas. I thought this was going to be the bigger hit of the 2, he was all over this in the box before it was wrapped. But he enjoys the boat more and I think it is, as another reviewer mentioned, due to the lack of interesting extras with this set. Really the tower is cool to set the shuttle in but outside of that offers no real draw. There is an elevator that is interesting but sticks on ours right now, not horribly, but still a bit annoying.
It is still Imaginext and way cool and durable, would be a huge hit for any established young space fans out there.

LOVED IT! Jan 09, 2010
By Penny K
Got this for my 4 year old grandson for Christmas, and it was a HUGE hit. He plays with it constantly, and has named the astronauts John Glenn, Buzz Aldren and Neil Armstrong! He will occasionally play with another toy, but will steer his play back to his space shuttle and Imaginext Space Station, which he also got for Christmas. He will eventually ask whatever toy he is playing with "Have you ever seen a real space shuttle blast off?", and it's right back to his space toys. All of his dinosaurs, and most of his other toys, have been taken on a tour of the space station, been introduced to the astronauts and witnessed a take off. Some have even travelled to Mars and to the Moon. He was already interested in space and said he wanted to be an astronaut, but this toy has really fueled his imagination and provided many hours of entertainment.

Not great quality Dec 01, 2011
I like the shuttle itself. The tower is not that great. The elevator sticks and does not run smoothly. The figures just pop out of it since there is no way to secure them. The sounds effects scare my three year-old so we just keep it turned off.
