Welcome to the next level — of Sonic the Hedgehog toys!

Get ready to battle with this new playset from Jakks Pacific, inspired by the hit Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie. Kids can try to defeat Robotnik’s famous Giant Eggman Robot with this set that is based on the finale of the film. Aside from being a very cool playset, it’s packed with tons of action features that Sonic fans will love. Kids can move the Giant Eggman Robot’s arms for fun smashing action — or use the bridge to launch the Super Sonic figure into battle.

Speaking of that figure: The playset comes with an exclusive 2.5-inch Super Sonic figure for kids to battle with — but they, of course, can add in any Sonic friends and figures that they may have on hand to help out with the battle. Although it is inspired by the movie, kids who are just big fans of Sonic will love it, even if they haven’t made it to theaters to check out the movie yet. Its open-ended play allows for kids to come up with their own stories and adventures, so they aren’t locked into one play pattern.

Even though the playset is designed for kids ages 3 and up for safety reasons, this set is sure to be a hit for Sonic fans that are a little older, too. The figure is detailed and movie-accurate enough to not feel “too young” so gradeschoolers and tweens will also love to play with this. Plus, the smashing action is fun at any age. Best of all for grown-ups: All of this playset’s action is fully kid-powered and there are no batteries required for play.
