Review: Herodrive

This is possibly one of the most exciting reviews I’ve done – especially when my little man loves all things DC Super Friends and anything with wheels… so when we were sent some brand new and exclusive Herodrive vehicles to try I knew I’d have a happy little man…

Herodrive from Funrise Toys are an exciting new set of vehicles that combine your favourite DC Super Friends characters with vehicles for the ultimate hero powered adventure.  Suitable for ages 3 and over they are the perfect toy for younger DC fans.

Herodrive Batman Racer

The largest vehicle in the range is the super impressive motorised Batman Racer, perfectly designed for little hands.  Push the logo on the hood for Batman style sound effects then press it again to send the Batman Racer racing forward – it even has a flapping cape.

There are also wings that are activated by pushing the windshield forward to make them pop out.  It has a flashing light on the front too, which is activated by the button.

It’s a solid and fun toy, it’s great fun and would make a perfect main present for a little one.  It does take batteries and they are included, hurrah.

The Herodrive Batman Racer costs £24.99 and is available from Amazon here*.


Herodrive Signal Squad

The Signal Squad vehicle is slightly smaller than the Batman Racer and is freewheeled with a push button on the front.

Signal Squad & Bat Racer

Push the logo button and a super signal is projected.  Again it also takes batteries and they are included.

My little man prefers free-wheeled cars and the light on the front is super cool, he tells me this one is his favourite.  There are three to collect – Superman, Batman and The Flash.

The Herodrive Signal Squad costs £12.99 is available from Amazon here*.


Herodrive Mash Machines

These reasonably priced and smaller vehicles are the perfect DC Super Friends/rescue vehicle mash up.  Again they are free-wheeled like the Signal Squad ones and by pushing the logo on the front the lights flash and it makes sounds.

We tested the Batman and Superman ones and they are super cool – the sound effects are awesome and the lights flash brightly.  They also aren’t too loud and don’t play for too long – a relief to the ears of any parent!  Again, batteries are included.

The Herodrive Mash Machines cost £7.99 each and are available from Amazon here*.

Our verdict

These are great fun and would make a fabulous gift for any fans of the DC Super Friends or vehicle play in general.. They are smart, bright and safe with no rough edges plus the sounds and lights aren’t loud or annoying.  I have one happy little man – they are now his favourite toys and they even go to bed with him…
