This review is from: Pintoy Space Series Mission Control Headquarters (Toy)
This was my sons main christmas present this year along the the Pintoy Space Shuttle and astronauts. I am however only reviewing the actual station here. It is built from wood and comes flat packed for you to assemble. It has clear enough instructions and all the screws you need so all you really have to supply is a screwdriver. It has 3 levels and comes with two figures, a tv, 2 tables and chairs to act as a crew lounge, a computer console and chairs for 'mission control' and a large satellite dish. The pointy ariel thing at the top can be turned to operate the working lift to transfer figures between floors (or in my sons case his pocket sized Stuart Little figure!) The figures themselves have little fabric clothes on, wooden heads, feet and hands and bendy limbs. One is a technician in orange overalls and the other is a scientist in a white coat.

It is a well constructed and put together toy however I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that the station building itself is not painted silver. The pillars are but the floors are made of natural wood.

It is quite an expensive toy but is the sort of thing that you would keep in the attic after it was grown out of and handed down, so I think you are paying for the durability of it! It has a really nice retro feel to it and therefore would never go out of fashion. My son loves it!
