Reviewing The Roblox Celebrity Toy Range

Like most nine-year old boys, my son J is very much into gaming and if he isn’t busy playing on a console then he’s either watching videos of other people doing so, or sat with paper and a pencil designing his own levels and characters for his own games.

J has a rather large collection of gaming based characters and figures, these are something which he seems to enjoy playing with and although I’m forever finding random figurines lying around the house in all kinds of places, if they keep his mind occupied and his eyes away from a screen then I can’t really argue!

We were recently sent a range of toys from the new Roblox Celebrity series to rate and review on this here blog. In order to make things a little easier we decided to put together an ‘unboxing video’ which you can view below.

What Is Roblox?

As you may be aware, Roblox is in-fact one of the World’s largest social gaming platforms which I have only recently allowed J to become part of, we are extremely careful though to monitor his use of this game. The associated toys however, I am more than happy for him to play with freely as they seem to capture his imagination and fuel his love for play.

We were sent the following figure packs to unbox and to enjoy:

  • 1 x Top Roblox Runway Model Set
  • 1 x Roblox Vorlias Figure
  • 3 x Roblox Blind Boxes
Roblox Blind Box Bonanza

I’m not sure what’s worse; the ‘surprise egg’ fad which our kids drove us to despair with last year or their current obsession with blind boxes. Either way, these three Roblox celebrity blind figure assortment boxes seemed to go down a storm with both our children.

Both J & E took great pleasure in opening these surprise boxes, each box is stamped with a letter which over time children can collect to form the word ‘ROBLOX’. Within each Roblox Celebrity Blind Figure Assortment Box is

  • 1 x Figure
  • 1 x Accessory (in some cases)
  • 1 x Exclusive Code to redeem a virtual item in the Roblox game
  • 1 x Collectors Sheet

Each figure requires putting together and should children wish, they may take figures apart to create entirely new characters which adds and elements of creativity to play.

The Roblox Celebrity Blind Figure Assortment Boxes currently retail from £3.99 and are available to purchase from a wide range of high street and online stores including Amazon.

Tearing Open The Top Roblox Runway Model Set

The children were so desperate to open the ‘Top Roblox Runway’ model set (which is also part of the recently released Roblox celebrity range) that they practically tore open the package, E was immediately impressed to find that one of the figures was dressed in pink and despite begging to be featured within the unboxing video, she lost interest in being on camera after being handed this figure as she was then intent upon taking said character into her bedroom to introduce it to all her other toys which there are far too many of for my liking.

Meanwhile J continued to remove the figures and accessories from the packaging and according to his reaction he seemed rather impressed with this set. J has since added these figures (minus the girl in pink as his sister laid claim to that) to his ever-growing Roblox figure collection. I’ve quietly watched him in action over the past few days as he’s been busy playing with these figures, mix-matching accessories whilst bringing the characters to life. It’s lovely to see him so immersed within imaginative role play!

The ‘Top Roblox Runway Model’ set includes:

  • 2 x Characters/ figures
  • 9 x Accessories
  • 1 x Collectors Sheet
  • 1 x Exclusive Code to redeem a virtual item in the Roblox game

The Top Roblox Runway Model set currently retails from £9.99 and is available to purchase from a variety of high street and online stores including Amazon.

The Roblox Vorlias Figure

Alongside larger sets, single celebrity Roblox figures are also available to purchase, We were sent Vorlias who according to his online biography is said to be a legendary hero from New Sealaan with an almighty power that led to the creation of an entire world known as Zenerith. 

J was rather taken with this particular figure, I’m not sure whether it was the character nor his back story, I’d hasten a guess that the wings and the slightly scary face impressed our little man and whatever floats his boat gets the thumbs up from me.

Included within the Vorlias Roblox Figure Set is:

  • 1 x Vorlias Figure (with removable detachable wings, hat etc)
  • 2 x Accessories
  • 1 x Exclusive Code to redeem a virtual item in the Roblox game
  • 1 x Collectors Sheet

Reviewing The Roblox Celebrity Toy Range

The Roblox Vorlias figure currently retails at £6.99 and is available to purchase from a number of high street stores or online via Amazon.

Age Suitability

Roblox figures are said to be suitable for children aged three years and over. However, these toys are marketed and targeted towards children aged six years and over which I feel is more suitable considering their association with gaming, that and a few of the figures are quite peculiar and perhaps a little scary looking for little ones.

Interchangeable Mix & Match Characters

Each of the Roblox figures features interchangeable parts which enable children and adults should they wish to mix and match parts to create unique characters. Both J & E rather enjoyed toying around with the accessories and interchangeable parts to create figures of their very own.

Roblox In Reality VS Virtual Reality

As I said in a previous Roblox review, I am far happier watching my children play imaginatively away from a screen. If they really must get into gaming, then I’d much prefer for them to be physically playing with gaming based figures rather than hooked up to a console switched off from the real world.

Raving About Roblox

The Roblox figures and playsets are ideally sized for taking out and about for play. Both J & E have greatly enjoyed playing with these figures mixing and matching the random accessories and parts. I’m far happier with the children with computer based figures than an actual computer and for that reason alone would give the new Roblox celebrity figures range a huge thumbs up.
