I sent this airplane with its launch pad gun to my 3 1/2 yr. old grandson. He loves planes and sometimes goes to the airport to watch planes land and take off. He is thrilled with this toy. I was a little worried that it was going to be dangerous with his little sister around but it doesn't seem to be an issue. We Skyped last night and he showed it to me and seems to be happy with this toy. Mattel does make a large variety of really good products.
