Space Toys For Kids – Miles From Tomorrow Stellosphere Toy Review

Let your kids imagination zoom off on space adventures with this ‘light and sounds’ Miles From Tomorrow Stellosphere Playset by IMC (Review toy sent to us by IMC).

It’s easy to unpack but the instructions are a bit of a nightmare (partly because of the colour) and the stickers really fiddly to put on with lots of them in really awkward areas.

On the plus side the stickers can be peeled off (with care) and repositioned one, or two, maybe three … occasionally four times! But the satisfaction at the end is totally rewarding and you (well your kiddo) ends up with a lovely large Stellosphere Spaceship to play with at the end of it all.

Personally I’d recommend taking this out of the box and building it before you wrap it. It will save the family a lot of build frustration on Christmas Day!

To open the space ship up press the large button on the top of the spaceship and watch as the spaceship slowly opens to reveal the insides accompanied by super spaceship sounds.

It comes with two moveable figures of Miles and Merc (robotic Ostrich), both of which have small holes underneath their feet that can be placed onto small plastic lumps on the deck of the Stellosphere to help them stand up. I like this as Merc in particular is rather tricky to stand up on his own.

Inside you’ll find lots of fun interactive features that include …

  • Zip line shooter that attaches to the other side of the ship so miles can swing across from one side to the other. This fires quite well but you have to manually secure it into place on the other side of the spaceship. It locks into place securely but you’ll need to show your child how to do this.  A minor irritation is that the shooter does have a tendency to fall out when being rotated as there is nothing locking it in place (it slides into place along a small runner) but that’s totally outweighed by the fun had sliding miles back and forth along the wire.
  • A sliding navigation chair – this feels a bit cramped and if the main Captains chair wasn’t there would pivot nicely into the center of the spaceship. But you need a Captains chair in a spaceship so it just slides up and down the track.
  • There are sliding doors (opened by turning the Captains chair) that lead to the jet pack launcher. This is launched by pressing a button on side (kind of where the Merc’s beak is pointing to) complete with accompanying sounds.Now common sense tells you that Miles needs his space helmet on for space travel but unfortunately it’s a bit heavy and he doesn’t really launch well when wearing it. It’s much more fun if he forgets to put it on. My top tip would be to attach Miles to the jet pack before sliding it into place. My girls struggled to get his hands attached whilst it’s in situ.

  • He doesn’t ‘fly’ far through the air but he does jump up high enough for it to be fun.

  • There’s a sliding trap door in the deck for miles to disappear though. Unfortunately Merc is a bit big so needs to go down the ramp.

You’ll also find

  • A bed For Miles with a slide to whizz down when he wakes up.
  • A catapult with ball and basket ball basket
  • A telescope to check out the night skies with.
  • At the back there are fold out ramps.
  • And there’s even access to the engine area in the tail.

  • The tail has a trigger that plays lights up tail and plays sound

It’s a a great size and quite solid to play with although some care needs to be taken when closing the spaceship backup to make sure all the pieces fit in neatly and the outer wings neatly click into place. My girls found that they had to jiggle the loose pieces including the zip line shooter that needs to be taken down to get it to shut properly.
