Description: This Adventure Series space set is packed with fun-filled interactive features and accessories, including a space shuttle with flashing lights, and sounds, a mini-spaceship, and more! Designed for children ages 4 to 9 years old.
Accessories:
  • FPT1216 - White Alpha Probe spaceship. It looks like a space shuttle, has a cargo bay with 2 doors that open, rolls on 3 wheels, and has 3 buttons on the wing that controls electronic sounds. The first button makes an accelerating rocket sound. The second button makes computer-like communication sounds. The third button makes a warning sound and makes red lights on the wings flash. Each sounds turns off automatically and overridden by another sound at anytime. Requires a 9-volt battery.
  • FPT1217 - Small grey 1-seat Recon Probe spaceship with a hinged top that lifts up to allow pilot access. The Recon Probe fits inside the cargo bay of the Alpha Probe, or can be docked on a railway on top of the cargo doors. It can also be attached by using the accessory life support cable. When the Recon Probe is in the cargo bay, it can rotate to an upright (nose up) position in order to allow the crew seats in the main ship to pull out for the figures. Has a round orange atom symbol on front cowling.
  • FPT40,021 - Rocket Module - Grey rocket boosters that fit both on the back of the FPT1216 Alpha Probe, or on the back of the FPT1217 Recon Probe. The rocket booster unit has a round center with 4 small round exhaust "pipes" on the sides. The bottom sides of the rocket booster unit have a small squared "wing".
  • FPT1610 - White hard plastic squiggly space-walk "tether" / Life-support cable that is non-flexible. This is the version formed in the shape of a question mark. The "crosses" at the ends face at a 90-degree angle to each other.
  • 2 Adventure Series Astronaut figures, each with movable arms and legs. Both figures have a hole in their backpacks that the accessory life-support cable connects to:
    • FPT1219 - Male Astronaut wearing a white space suit, gold shoes, gold gloves, and a permanently attached transparent blue-tinted helmet.
