Defend the PJ Masks Headquarters | Toy Review

If you’ve got an under 5 no doubt you’ve heard of the super hero kids who save the world in their pyjamas; Owlette, Cat Boy and Gecko escapade in the night dealing with the troublesome villains Night Ninja and Romeo, the crazy scientist. 

Featured in The Warehouse Big Toy Sale throughout July is the PJ Masks Headquarter Play-set. Our own little heroes can be the pyjama-ed hero Cat Boy and defend the headquarters! My kid has collected the team of PJ Masks figures so this imaginative play turned into a full blown episode of pyjama adventure, with all the heroes and villains – this play-set comes with Cat Boy and his blue Cat Boy vehicle, others are sold separately.

The control centre, which plays fun phrases from the show and lights up when you press the buttons, is where I saw Cat Boy and the team huddled waiting for their mission instructions. Then he was off slipping down the headquarter slide at great pace, and into his Cat Boy car into the night to apprehend my sons favourite villain Night Ninja!

The apprehended Ninja was swiftly inserted and spun around on a spinning door, it’s a revolving door apparently for quick hero escapes so I’m not sure if it was entirely the best place to “lock up” a villain, and as it turns out Night Ninja was not heard from again, out of sight, out of mind.

With no time to lose Cat Boy was up the elevator, past the team still milling around the control centre and up to the super owl-vision look out on the top level, after peering through the super owl-vision another villain, Romeo, was spotted lurking in plain view! Finally the other figures were called into play, Gecko was sent to the Furball Shooter on the second level – a little blue ball shot out from the shooter in the direction of Romeo. Owlette randomly decided to exercise on the cat rings, it must have been the stress of all the emergency action.

Cat Boy raced out of  the car doorway/launching pad on the bottom floor in his vehicle to capture Romeo who was then held captive in the movable tree trap. The tree trap/gates open and close with the same slider that spins the revolving door, and with that move of closing the tree gates trapping Romeo, the revolving door spun back around too and Night Ninja reappeared… he was back in the game, and so the adventure continued! FYI Owlette stopped exercising and took over the shooter from Gecko who spent the rest of the play-set episode going up and down the elevator and slide.

Watching kids play can be most entertaining.

PJ Masks playset

A durable play-set the PJ Masks Headquarters is compatible with all three inch figures (sold separately), so the kids can play with all six available characters. With revolving doors and tree branches, a doorway for the Cat Boy car, the fur ball shooter, cat rings, super owl-vision, a control centre, Cat Boy and his vehicle, a full fun hour was spent by my boys, aged 2 & 5 years old, recreating or imagining their very own night-time adventure with their favourite super hero kids in pyjamas.

    This would be a hit for my 4 year old. He likes pretending to be Catboy and do super catboy speed. 😛 But I find character based toys are usually more expensive so we don’t buy too much of them. The catboy vehicle is cool though.

    My little boy love PJ Masks! He would really enjoy this playset, I imagine that he would get hours of fun playing with this!!

    My boys don’t watch PJ masks but I think that they would both love this toy. My youngest loves toy cars and would love pushing the car down the ramp and my eldest would love pressing the buttons. Would love to see a video of this in action.

    Our 2 year old has recently got into PJ Masks in a big way! So much so that she will be having the same theme for her birthday later this year 🙂 I think she likes it as it correspond with a lot of super hero play that out daughter enjoys observing or participating with her peers. Great fun!

    My son sort of outgrew pj masks. He was a big fan while at kindy but then since he’s been at school he’s more of a Lego fan. He absolutely loves anything Lego at the moment which is pretty cool especially when mum gets to help build it hehe

    Pj Masks has been a hit from first release with my 6yr old when she was a baba and now with my 3yr old its become a popular choice. I myself was never that kind of girl but it warms my heart that my girls have these things in common..they love the idea of being superheroes and our local library has dressups which gets them imagining they are owlette or catboy. Love this program cos it teaches them the difference between good and evil and what to fight against. Love this toy and i know they would too, may have to consider as a Christmas present.

    My 6 year old daughter still likes PJ Masks! 🙂 I don’t think she would like to buy the toys, but in saying that she loves the dress ups for Owlette. It’s actually quite a cute cartoon and prefer her watching that to some of the cartoons that are on TV etc

    PJ Masks was never really a big hit here which was surprising to me but I do wonder if it’s because Paw Patrol seemed to be around at the same time and that’s what my youngest lent towards more? I have a few times here and there popped a PJs episode on but he’s never that into it so haven’t really looked into the themed toys for it, but this toy looks really fun and allows for alot of imaginary play rather than controls, lights, noises doing it all for the child which does encourage me more to buy it than loud sometimes intrusive ones are. So doesn’t matter hugely that this is PJ masks and don’t think if my boy played with it would it matter that it is PJs….think he would just enjoy playing with it
