Have you heard of Mighty Muggs?
I have to admit that I hadn’t either until one turned up from Hasbro! Perfect for Olivia and in a range of characters, Mighty Muggs are a vinyl-plastic collectables range featuring the characters from Star Wars, Marvel Comics, Indiana Jones, G.I. Joe, and Transformers. Obviously, Olivia wanted to get her hands on the whole Star Wars collection. This is most definitely up her street!
As it turns out, we received the Darth Vader figure. Like a little-squashed version of the character, the Mighty Mugg bears a resemblance so you know instantly who it is! Also, the box says who it is in case you weren’t sure.
The unique feature on the Mighty Muggs collectable figures is the face. By pushing down on the head, you turn it to reveal a different expression. Darth Vader has 3.
Mighty Muggs are suitable for ages 6+, although it specifies 6-10, I’m pretty sure it will appeal to older fans and collectors likewise.
With no batteries to get going all you need to do, should you wish, is to release your Mighty Mugg from the box. In our case, he will stay in the box as Olivia would like to add to her collection along with the other ranges she has started collecting too. Beginning with the rest of the Star Wars characters!
As far as the figure itself goes, it is really sturdy and very capable of handling even the most excessive ‘head presser’ as you play with it. Trust me, that has been very well tested in this house!
However this, in my opinion, and Olivia’s is definitely more of a collector’s item than an actual toy. I have no issue with thinking it will make a great addition to any fans collection and is built to withstand play at the hands of younger children, but as fun as spinning the head is, Olivia prefers it as a collector’s item personally.
