Good toy, could be better
4 Star Review   By daddc on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 26, 2013   

Our older son wanted this over anything else for his fourth birthday - lovingly refers to it at the "batman house". A year later, both of our boys (now 3 and 5) still love it, and all of the line that goes with it. They love the elevator, jail, various floors, and all of the other activities and many knick-knacks. And there is a "coolness" factor to the imposing size and light-up bat signal. The overall structure is pretty rugged. However, the quality on some elements could be better. As other reviewers note, the elevator is not great, the telecope doesn't work (not sure if it is supposed to - seemed like it would), the button on the launcher does not come up all the way (worst of all imaginext launchers we have), and some of the doors fall off. After getting this batcave, we bought the earlier version, used but in good shape with all pieces. The quality on that version was definitely better, and I would have given it a full 5 stars (although this one still wins on sheer coolness). Overall, this is still a solid, fun toy, and a good foundation for the DC superhero line.

Should have read the reviews first....
2 Star Review   By Sportymomof4 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 9, 2013   

After returning the first one I bought thinking it was missing parts and because there was no manual, I looked further into the reviews as well as the web manual. The online instructions show the "old" telescope which looks like it actually works! This "updated" version I got stinks! FP, why would you stop including manuals? This toy is not cheap so as a consumer I expect quality! And I am a return customer! I bought my son the Eagle Talon Castle and every accessory that was available for Christmas and he enjoyed it so much that I thought the Batcave was surely going to surpass it for his Birthday! Not the case....the quality is much lower than the castle and the features are lacking in comparison! I feel DC comics would be disappointed in your representation of Batman! Buyer beware......I am done purchasing Imaginext from Fisher Price.

Fun but missing parts
4 Star Review   By Ddiavola on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 13, 2013   

My 3 year old son loves this! And it holds his attention for quite awhile. My only complaint is it was missing some of the smaller extra parts and instructions. I actually didn't know there were instructions until I read others were missing instructions and parts too.

Broken and flimsy
2 Star Review   By MomOfThreeWildBoys on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 7, 2013   

Got this as a birthday present for my son who will be 5 tomorrow. He LOVES Batman and would be so excited to get it but after reading reviews I thought I should open and check it out first. Well, the elevator is broken out of the box, it won't move at all. It was missing Batman, Robin and the big computer thing. And yes, whoever designed the telescope needs a new job. Why make it so it won't fit through the opening? I don't even know if I want to try getting another one because the whole thing feels kind of flimsy. I can imagine the elevator breaking again quickly. I'm sure he will be excited to play with it, even if the elevator breaks. I'm just disappointed in the quality, especially for the price. This is our first venture into Imaginext toys. We do have other pieces from the DC set that look good so far though. (The Jokers Fun House, Green Lantern planet, Motorized Batmobile and a couple of the smaller character packs.) The biggest and "best" piece is the biggest letdown.

Just bought this for my 4yr old son for his birthday today.. he loves it!! i have read other reviews and am shocked that grown adults need instructions to put this together! as for the construction, its built well enough for a small child, did however think the bat wind should have been included since that picture was on the box.. other wise great buy for a toddler..

Fabulous Toy
5 Star Review   By screswell on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 10, 2013   

My 6 year old son really loves this toy! I too thought a part was missing since we weren't sure how the telescope worked without instructions. I watched the video clip and thought we were missing the base. Thankfully other reviewers wrote this and I read the response from Fisher Price which helped us. It works great and my son loves the toy! Many fun features!

1 Star Review   By CC76 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 7, 2013   

I agree with a recent reviewer about the missing parts. We too, had missing pieces as well as zero instructions. While it's not very hard to put together, why would you not include directions? FP states that they changed the design on this toy but perhaps a picture showing that would be helpful to customers. I am disappointed that I wasted time returning this item because I thought it was missing a piece when the whole time the piece was never included. I worked in the entertainment field and know that you do not show a picture of something on the product when that is not included in the package, that is false advertising. Terrible customer service in my opinion!!!

1 Star Review   By nametaken on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 28, 2012   

Like other reviews we are missing the base to the telescope. One of the best parts of this toy. I called a friend that also bought one for her son for Christmas and she doesn't have the part either. So I can't just exchange it for one with all the parts. Seems like they are all missing. What a disappointment :(

Batcave so fun!
5 Star Review   By HappyMom123 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 28, 2012   

We did not have any issues with this batcave and have been having a blast with it! So many levels for imaginative play! We can stuff so many "bad guys" into the prison, the launcher works fine as does all the moving parts. My son is five so it was a great purchase for him as his first and probably not last imaginext playset.

I have the older version...
5 Star Review   By AuntT on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 28, 2012   

I purchased the older design about a year ago for my oldest nephew's birthday. He plays with is constantly and it's held up very well. This item impressed me so much that I have looked at other Imaginext lines for future purchases. My only complaint is that most of the accessories for this product all come with another batman figure. So if we add any more to it we'll have like five batmans.

Missing parts and Manual
3 Star Review   By sam9796 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 27, 2012   

Similar to other reviews missing several parts including telescope mount, launcher mount and flip down door next to the elevator. Curiously also missing any written documentation (other than what's on the side of the box)

Missing Parts
2 Star Review   By TomsMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 27, 2012   

We too have found several small items missing from this product. This was our son's "big gift" for Christmas this year so we are pretty disappointed in the quality. I also think for $50 there should be some sound effects, not just a light on the bat that only stays lit for a few seconds. Going to attempt to contact customer service so we'll see where that leads...

Not up to usual Imaginext standards!
2 Star Review   By minim on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 26, 2012   

My boys, 4.5 and 3 yrs old, were so excited about this toy. We really enjoy the Imaginext toy series, specifically the space explorers and dinosaur themed toys - they are durable, well made, and appropriately designed for frustration-free play by this age group. The Batcave, especially considering the $50 price tag, is not up to the usual standards we've come to expect from the brand. 1) Elevator, which functions on cords, is extremely hard to move up/down, it feels like broken vertical blinds. 2) Telescope - thought I was missing a base piece (which is pictured on box) - called Fisher-Price, to be told there was a design change. Followed new directions, the telescope falls over and does not pop through the top opening no matter the angle. 3) Fire projector - manufacture defect, button lower than opening, so could not push. 4) Batcycle - Batman figure does NOT work with the vehicle, which is hugely misleading and disappointing, especially because the vehicle is colored to match Batman more than Robin. Robin figure works with the vehicle, but it is very difficult to force him on there. 5) Secret doors - construction is super flimsy, and does not stay closed sometimes. I will say that Fisher-Price, on the 2 occasions - including this one - that I've contacted them about a defective toy, is very responsive. After some chatting, I was given the option of returning the item for a replacement. I received an email with return instructions - but after reading multiple reviews on several websites which cited the same issues we had, I decided to return the item outright. Come to find out there is an older design of the Imaginext Batcave which is hugely better. Boys have been playing happily, daily, with the one I found second hand. I am surprised to see so many positive reviews for the new design - maybe the item is manufactured in more than one place, and the quality control is different by location...for future buyers, good luck! Hope they bring back the older design and quality, the concept is so good.

Child loves it!
4 Star Review   By Fatherof2 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 26, 2012   

"My In-Laws purchased this toy for my son for Christmas. For my Son, everything was perfect, but to my disappointment the base for telescope was missing so it doesn't work right and will not fit thru the pop up opening and the cannon doesn't really fire. I contacted Customer Service and was advised they would send em a shipping label to return the toy and they would send me new toy, this would be great but my son does not want to be without the toy. I tried taking it back to the store to get one that was not missing any pieces, but the store only had 3 left and they were all missing the same base piece for the telescope. All in all i think it is a good toy so far, just a little disapointing for me.

Missing Pieces
2 Star Review   By smmmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 26, 2012   

I should have read other folks' reviews before suggesting this be purchased for my son's Christmas gift. Now that it's open and out of the box, we are discovering that there are missing pieces and a missing instruction manual. While I'm printing the manual out from online, I'm reading through them, and I can't believe the quality that's missing in our product. Where is your Quality Control? Especially at the holidays? I will be contacting Customer Service today to request that these pieces be sent immediately.

Batcave Missing Parts!
3 Star Review   By AnneS on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 26, 2012   

I was so excited to get DS the Imaginext Batcave for Christmas and he was SOOOOOO thrilled with it this morning but upon further inspection there are parts missing and I am so sad and so is he! I am truly hoping I can return it tomorrow and get another one but if not I will be contacting FP in the morning. I am also worried about the elevator, it isn't super smooth, hoping the next one will be better. Seems like after a year you all could make some minor design changes and improve the product. ..... and then maybe package the small pieces a little better.

Awful purchase
2 Star Review   By daddyluvs4 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 25, 2012   

We purchased this product for our son for Christmas. While assembling it for him today, I realized there were several key components missing. The telescope base is missing which makes that part of the toy completely useless. The assembly instructions say to attach a wall to the balcony. There is no wall to attach. I probably should have read some of the reviews before spending $55 on this toy, as it seems there are several other similar complaints. I assumed being a Fisher Price toy, it would be higher quality than that of the Dollar Store.

I am very DISAPPOINTED and yes, MAD!
1 Star Review   By esuz423 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 25, 2012   

YES I am up at 2 am EST on Christmas Eve writing this because I AM THAT MAD! I really wish I had read the other reviews before purchasing this 3 weeks ago. Like others previously mentioned, elevator does not flow well and also I am missing pieces. I am a very detailed personality and I KNOW they were not lost on my watch. I am missing the BALCONY WALL PIECE and the BASE PIECE TO THE TELESCOPE. I AM FORMALLY REQUESTING THAT THE PIECES BE SENT TO ME AFTER SPENDING $50 ON THIS PIECE OF POOR WORKMANSHIP! I am usually pleased with toys with the Fisher-Price name, but this is one I will not recommend and sad to say I wish I had not purchased with my hard earned money for my 3 yr old as his big gift from Santa.

Disappointing present
2 Star Review   By bajamatt on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 24, 2012   

Purchased this toy for my son for Christmas. To my disappointment, the toy did function has advertised. For one, two pieces were missing from the toy. The base for telescope was missing so it doesn't work right and will not fit thru the pop up opening. From the looks of the packaging a door on the front side looks to be missing. Last, the button on the cannon, doesn't pop up making it very difficult to push and the cannon doesn't really fire. I was really looking forward to seeing my son play with this present. I have bought several other imaginext toys that work great and thought this would be the same.

Not worth the money!
3 Star Review   By AHenrie on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 24, 2012   

I was SO excited to buy this for my four year-old because he loves Batman, but WOW did I overpay. I was very disappointed when we took this out of the box yesterday. The first thing I noticed was how thin/ cheap the plastic felt! Then, when I sat down to play with my son with it for the first time, the elevator wouldn't work at all! I tried everything I could to get the strings to tighten up so that they would work, but nothing helped! He also got quite a few of the accessory toys, including Joker's Fun House, which are MUCH higher quality than this. The Batcave was a complete was of money. I would say it's worth more like $20! I should have gone with the Space Station! (My five year-old recieved the Eagle Talon Castle and it was definitely worth the money.) He's not very interested in playing with it and I really can't blame him...it doesn't open up and one of the few "cool" parts doesn't even work.

10 minutes out the box
3 Star Review   By Donny on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 6, 2012   

With in 10 min of having this out of the box i was regretting buying this for my child. Not only am I missing the projectile that comes with the package im also missing the wall piece that connects to the balcony. I opened up this product alone and on a table in an organized fashion so i know these pieces weren't lost. The elevator like other reviews claim, fails to operate smoothly and gets twisted up a lot. overall i believe the concept is great. My four year old son loves it but that's because hes oblivious to the fact that things are missing. I on the other hand can't believe i paid 50$ for it. I sometimes wonder if toys, that have gears like this, break so often, because of the access children and adults have to them, while they sit on the shelves trapped their boxes, with no where for these moving pieces to go. thus stripping the gears and or in the elevators case tangling the chords. I also bought the helicopter by imaginext that has a trigger that spins the blades when pulled. that too never worked correctly fresh out of the box. Perhaps people were pulling the trigger, and stripping the gears, that drive the blades, that were trapped in the box... Solution...... enclosed boxes with see through plastic windows. perhaps cellulose matter that's biodegradable instead plastic. PS i love Fisher Price toys and the quality that usually comes with that name but i do have to admit im a bit disappointed with this product. in the end im just thankful my 4 year old son son Liam loves it.

Child loves it!
5 Star Review   By momma1903 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 2, 2012   

We have had this for 10 months and my 5 year old son and 2 year old nephew play with it every day. The elevator does snag up sometimes but after a little of working the string it is fine again. Ours had proven quite durable, the boys play hard. My nephew is getting his own this Christmas. The best deal is getting the gift set that comes with all the vehicles and villains!

Wonderful but then...
5 Star Review   By necenece on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 28, 2012   

My 3-year-old got this for his birthday, on September 23rd. It's 10/28, and the elevator is broken. That was his favorite part. We tried to fix it, to no avail. Sad to spend so much money on something that lasted for about a month. We can't afford another. I also agree with the others on the telescope. It never worked decent out of the box. How to tell our 3-year-old (with language delay, and on the autism spectrum), that the elevator is broken... He's now extremely frustrated every time he tries to play with it. We love Fisher-Price and Imaginext toys, but won't buy anything so "complex" again.

Poor quality & a disappointment
2 Star Review   By MamawA on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 18, 2012   

We are on our 2nd batcave; the elevator lift messed up on the first one about 10 minutes after being out of the box. We took it back because $50 is a lot of money to spend on a toy that doesn't work properly. It has been a few months and the grandboy asked for it again so we got it and the lift has messed up on this one also. This absolutely needs to be redesigned! This is ridiculous that we pay that much money for a toy from a company that is supposed to be reputable and many people are having the same issue and on top of that it has been over 1 year since the 1st reviewer posted about the elevator messing up and Fisher Price hasn't done anything to change or fix it. This would be a great toy if it worked properly and had a different style of elevator but that is the only positive thing I can say about this thing since we are on our 2nd one with a broken elevator.

Not the usual Imaginext quality.
2 Star Review   By GOURU on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 10, 2012   

Was very excited to get this Batcave for my son last Christmas. It didn't take long however to find out that this Batcave did not even remotely compare to the original!!! All it does it fall open. The yellow arm on the back is extremely loose and I'm unable to tighten it. The little door up in the front right (beside the blue railing) won't stay in the upright/storage position. The front doors that fold in when storing pretty much have to be forced closed, and when you do close them the fall back open again when you pick the Batcave up to put it away. Also the hidden shooter/gun mechanism never has never worked properly, the secret panel that moves aside never stays up, it constantly drops so the shooter can't come out. All in all I was very disappointed with this new Batcave. Wish you could still get parts for the original because that one was much better thought out.

Good toy with a major bug
4 Star Review   By PiscesRick on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 8, 2012   

Overall the product was well received by my 4 year old son. He plays with the whole cave package and uses the individual elements in other imaginative ways. The elevator stopped works - similar to most of the other reviews - but I was able to find some repair instructions on line and fixed it in about 2 hours. Big hands + small parts = difficult repairs. Otherwise, it was well received and has provided a lot of enjoyment.

Beware doesnt work!
1 Star Review   By becdangande on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 30, 2012   

We are now on our second Batcave after getting the first one replaced as it didnt have a 'Robin' and the lift did not work. The second has just been un-boxed to find that the lift doesnt work again! Its not a cheap toy for it not to work properly. There is obviously a design fault which should be fixed! Dont disappoint your kids!

poorly built
2 Star Review   By Smithx6 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 17, 2012   

We gave this to our son for Christmas. The elevator has never worked. The Batman that came with this toy does not fit in the motorcycle. The toy topples over when our 3 year old sits to play with it. We love imaginext and really wish this would have been as well made as the other imaginext toys we have. I would not recommend this toy. The earlier model of this toy was great.

Good product
4 Star Review   By bassplayer316 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 11, 2012   

My son loves his Batcave and plays with it almost everyday. The only issues I have are the Bat Man doesn't fit in to Batcycle that comes with the cave, Robin's arms seem to be molded in a odd manner the doesn't allow him to sit well in the Batmobile, and the entrance doors to the cave doesn't seem to stay closed. All in all, we all enjoy to product. We can't wait to get the Batwing to hang on the side, though it seems hard to find. I've read other comments and our elevator works well, every once in a while the figures get caught, but it's easy to adjust. He has not had any problems with the telescope due to you can reach right in and set it to the up position to open the doors. Still a good toy.

3 year old frustrations
1 Star Review   By Cherowyan on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 7, 2012   

Although it says for ages 3-8, even I have a hard time making the elevator rise, impossible for our 3 y/o. Bat telescope does not raise unless the telescope is set 'just right'. If not it will bind against the frame. The little knobs for turning should be a gripper style for little hands, not smooth. The DVD is out-of-balance and vibrates like an unbalanced tire. I am afraid it will ruin my player. Overall, a complete and total disappointment for me and the 3 y/o grandson. The little guy does play with Batman, Robin and the motorcycle, just not in the 'Cave', which he already had in a larger size.

Awesome Gift
5 Star Review   By Emnjjsmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 27, 2012   

My 5 year old daughter got this for Christmas, she plays with it for hours at a time along with her older sister. They absolutely love it! I am definitely going to be buying extras to go with it. My daughter actually carries around the dvd that came with it too and tells me all about the super friends.

Very Disappointed
3 Star Review   By Jen1971 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 21, 2012   

I generally LOVE this brand of toys. My 2 boys will paly for hours with the Space line of toys. I was thrilled to get what I thought was a great deal on the new Batcave only to be very disappointed on the quality. Very poorly built. The cool elevator does not work at all and a few of the add on gadgets will not stay in place. Im hoping to return this and possilby get lucky with a different one.

Disappointed
2 Star Review   By Marty on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 19, 2012   

Not a bad toy but not a great one either. My two boys have only had it for 5 days and have already lost interest. They were mislead by the pictures on the side of the box that showed Batman's plane and the Joker. Kids don't care about fine print, they wanted to know why they weren't in the box too. Considering the price of the toy, I wondered why they weren't in the box either.

Not the old cave for sure!
1 Star Review   By MomofBrenn on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 13, 2012   

My son spent his own money on this, overpricd $60, new BatCave. What a bumer it is! The elevator does not work & add-ons don't stay on. I am unemployed & cannot afford a replacement (that would do the same?) i am so angry at this! My son is upset and i think he should be compensated. I'll have to think seriously about another Imaginext purchase.

Quite Happy
4 Star Review   By Eddy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 6, 2012   

I like the fact that there is a good variety of bad guys and have purchased Joker, Penguin, Clayface, Two-Face, Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Killer Croc, & Cat Woman but miss not being able to purchase Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn (the Joker's side kick clown). I have also purchased Superman, Hawkman, Flash and the Green Lantern set. In addition, I would like to see other characters as well including: Wonder Woman, perhaps Bat Girl, and Lex Luther. The additional girl characters would encourage my daughter to play with our son :-)

Original Batcave still #1
3 Star Review   By TraLiz on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 6, 2012   

I love the Imaginext brand and have purchased countless products and have been more than happy with every single one. So when my boys, who have the first Imaginext Batcave and play with it almost every day, asked for this one for Christmas, I didn't hesitate to get it for them. (Even though it was a bit overpriced, in my opinion) It was, by far, their favorite gift Christmas morning. However, it turned out to be quite a disappointment when we took it out of the box and found the elevator does not work at all. They played with the other parts of it, but got frustrated that they couldn't use all of it. I hopefully won't have a problem when I try to exchange it, and really hoping the elevator works on the new one! Also, the wall piece you have to attach doesn't stay attached so my kids just took it off and left it aside. All in all, if I were to recommend an Imaginext Batcave to a friend, I would suggest the older one.

Stick with the older Bat cave!
2 Star Review   By Lotty on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 30, 2011   

I didn't want to get this toy but it was the only request to Santa. This cave is so much more flimsy than the Bat cave I bought last year and I paid 40% more for this one! First off, the old cave folded like a suitcase. This made for less space out of Grandma's room and contained all the accessories. Next, parts keep falling off. He'll flap down an entrance and it comes off in his hand. I can tell the chute for the telescope is already stripping. Yesterday was the first time he had used it. Also, two of the new action figures have TWO LEFT HANDS! This sounds kind of picky but my grandson was so frustrated last night, trying to attach an accessory to a figure. He brought it to me and I realized that is why the accessory would not attach.

Keeps him entertained!
4 Star Review   By polycat on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 29, 2011   

My precocious near 4 year old received this for Christmas, he loves it and it keeps his attention (not much does!) but Im a little disappointed at a few of the "add on items"...the computer doesnt lock to anything, the projectile (one only) is missing after first day as are a few other "weapons" (?? no instructions to give a clue what they were) Its been 4 days, he hasnt broken it and wants to play it often.I hope to find more "villans" (only have two, they were out) as well as possibly order more projectiles..they would be fun but one is not enough!

Elevetor Malfunction
3 Star Review   By RobbysMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 28, 2011   

My son received the Batcave for Christmas. We were excited to purchase it for him, and he was very excited when he saw it! In the same day of opening it, the elevator started to malfunction, and then just didn't work at all. I think the engineers may need to go back to the drawing board on that one and come up with a new, more functional design. I'm going to give the benifit of the doubt, we are sending it back and getting a new one. I am hoping that the same thing does not happen again. My son does really love this toy, it is hard to explain we have to send it back, but he knows we will get a new one.

TO THE BATCAVE...
5 Star Review   By DWRIGHT1 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 28, 2011   

My son loves to use his imagination so the batcave is awesome! He has not stopped playing with it since Christmas 12am. He has 2 other Imaginext play sets and he enjoys them all still. Thanx Fisher Price for your wonderful inventions that keeps my son HAPPY!

Batman cave
2 Star Review   By Longstar71 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 27, 2011   

Well this version seems poorly made and flimsy, i own the prior version that is a little bit shorter but made much better, with durability, So if you are buying the batcave i suggest the older version

My Boys love it!
5 Star Review   By TwinsDad on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 27, 2011   

One of my boys saw a commercial for this only one time and had to have it. He asked everyone for it, even Santa. Needless to say, Big Red came through for my little man and it was waiting under the tree Christmas morning. They got several other Bat-accessories too, and even though it's only been two days since Christmas we've already gotten hours of play out of them. I like these toys too because I can get in the floor and take part in the adventure with them. This definitely won't be the only Imaginext playset we purchase.

He Still Loved It
5 Star Review   By Kirkpatrick on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 26, 2011   

My son was so happy seeing he recieved for Christmas the "BAT CAVE" but when the batman was missing and not in the box. He was sad for a few but he still had Robin and used other toys as batman. Please let me know if I can purchase the right batman somewhere. If anyone knows PLEASE.

Problems with elevator
3 Star Review   By Dadtothree on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 25, 2011   

My kids love this toy, but only one hour after we opened it, the elevator started to malfunction (the cable appeared to tangle around the elevator car, and I can't figure out how to fix it). Although this elevator is poor quality, the rest seems pretty good, but only time will tell.

Great product
5 Star Review   By Tony on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 18, 2011   

My son received this for Christmas from "Santa", he loves it! He even uses his other toys in it, great purchase and well worth the money. Since he's received it the first thing he says in the morning when he wakes up is "let's go downstairs and play Batman"...

My son loves this product
5 Star Review   By batmomz on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 14, 2011   

My son had the old batcave he got the new one for his birthday this year and he loves this one more than the older one. From the time we opened it we have not had any problems at all with this toy. Everything that was supposed to come with the toy did. My son is very rough with all of his toys and this one in particular holds up to his rough play very well. He plays with this toy all day long. Number one toy in my book

Real Batman Fan
5 Star Review   By Joli on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 24, 2011   

As a real Batman fan long before I ever had a son I can tell you firsthand that this is a super fun product! My son gets bored with almost everything but he immediately fell in love with his Batcave! Together we played for hours! I had no problems figuring out what all the "extra" parts were for as everything is pictured on the back of the package and it is common sense to know that's how they're used or where they're placed. I haven't had a problem with our elevator either and I don't mind that Batman's feet are too wide for his Batbike because we are simply grateful Fisher Price made Batman playsets for preschoolers in the first place! haha We can only hope a Bane figure is made in the near future for the upcoming movie, "The Dark Knight Rises".

Great until opened it
4 Star Review   By Armywifee on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 3, 2011   

My overall review is based on my son and his liking of the toy. He got it for his birthday and enjoys it so far. It has a lot of cool features but already the elevator is not fully working. However as a parent, getting this with all the extra unexplained pieces and more importantly missing the laser gun with bullet, is VERY frustrating. I wrote to Fisher Price since I already opened the box and destroyed it before realizing anything was missing, hopefully I don't have much more hassle before the toy is complete!

New Batcave
3 Star Review   By girlford71 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 26, 2011   

My kids have and love the old Batcave, so they wanted the new one. The new one isn't nearly as nice. It's smaller, the characters do not fit into the motorcycle or elevator well and I'm wondering how soon that elevator will stop working. I'm disappointed.

Holds their Attention
5 Star Review   By JnMsMOM on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 21, 2011   

I have not found a toy in a very long time that holds their attention this long...they have been saving kittens with their little batman figures for the past 3hrs without fighting over anything. My boys are 3 and 4yrs old. They have trouble getting Batman into his batmobike as his feet are oversided...other then that they don't need much help from mom.

good but not the best imaginext toy
4 Star Review   By cookmonster on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 18, 2011   

Overall this product is pretty good. My son recieved this as a birthday present. Within 12hrs the elevator quit going up and down, unfortunately its a pully system that works it. On the Imaginext ship they have a corkscrew system that works alot better, my son hasnt had any problems with that. There also alot of unattached parts that we cant figure out where they are supposed to go. Like I said its good but not great.
