All of a sudden what seemed out of nowhere last year moshi monsters appeared and every child seemed to own a "moshling" on the online game named moshi monsters. My sister was one of many who was fascinated by the craze and not before long it seemed you could get just about everything moshi monster (cards, stickers, keyrings, clothing, watches and the list goes on!).
One of the most popular moshi toys and was also in the top 10 most wanted toys for Christmas 2011 was the moshi monster tree house.
About the product
The moshling tree house (manufactured by mind candy) is made of good quality, durable plastic. The front consists of a brown trunk with a green tree top with the moshi monsters logo on it. The tree house opens up at the back to reveal a large area for you to play with all your moshlings, it’s also great for storing them all when not being play with so they don’t get lost. There is also a real working basket lift for your moshi monsters to play on; this is what my sister particularly likes about it.
The tree house has a branch sticking out which a moshling can sit on, the set or includes an exclusive Roxy diamond shaped figure which my sister really likes and the face that no one else at school has it is an even bigger bonus!
The tree house is 29.5cm in height and width and is 15cm in diameter. I purchased this from the toyshop I work in as I was struggling to get hold of it as everyone seemed to want it, I paid £19.99 for it which is the recommended retail price, and it comes in quite a large box and bulked up my sisters Christmas present pile quite nicely. I’ve also seen this tree house in Tesco and online at eBay, play and is also available from the official moshi monster site although at the time of writing this it was out of stock. The tree house does not require alot of putting together and what did need doing my sister who is 9 managed to do it herself.
The tree house is recommended for children 4 and up and probably not suitable for children under this age because the moshling figures that have to go with this are quite small although there’s no small parts with the actual tree house. As mentioned you only get one figure with this and you will probably want alot more, they can be purchased in packs of 5 for £4.99 or you can get blister packs of 2 for £1.99 although you don’t know which figures you’re going to get in there so could get up with duplicates.
Summary This is a great toy and my sister has had great fun making up little stories with all her moshlings, its good quality and not too badly priced at £19.99, although it has not been played with as much as some of her other toys and I can see within a few months it may be gathering dust purely for the fact there is not a terrible lot to do with the actual tree house itself apart from the lift which takes the moshlings up to the treetop perches. I’d rate this product 3 and a half stars.
