Erector Set: Sonic the Hedgehog – Holiday Giveaway Bash


Sonic Erector Set Sonic the Hedgehog Construction Playset from Erector Giveaway | #WinGiveaways

With three son, I know the power of imaginative play with Erectors. They truly ignite the perfect blend of fun and educational toys. Well, there’s a brand new set on the scene that certainly wasn’t around when my guys were little, the Sonic the Hedgehog Erector Set.

Sonic 300x207 Sonic the Hedgehog Construction Playset from Erector Giveaway | #WinGiveawaysIn this playset, Sonic and Knuckles go head to head in a race against one another at a Chemical Plant. The iconic racetrack comes complete with buildable Sonic and Knuckles figures, their signature motorized speed vehicles, and the racing track, and one chaos emerald to collect. Includes over 165 parts with easy to follow building instructions, stickers, and tools.

The Sonic the Hedgehog Erector Set combines two things all kids love in one playset – build things and race cars. Since, I’m one of the older generations who has a little nostalgia for Sonic, this makes it a great gift idea. Recommended for ages 5+ and retails at $79.99. Available exclusively at Toys “R” Us stores and online at Toyrus.com.
