When I paid a visit to the Just Play showroom at the 115th North American Toy Fair back in February, one of the most exciting offerings was the expansion of their PJ Masks collection. Over the past few years, eOne's animated superhero adventure series has been a big hit on Disney Junior, and likewise the toys have done well for Just Play. The new season has brought forth some new adventures, new villains - and an all-new location: space. In fact, from the moment the first teaser arrived, our youngest daughter was asking when "the PJ Masks spaceship" would be a toy. Featured in my 2018 Holiday Wish Guide, the PJ Masks Super Moon Adventure HQ Rocket answers the call, setting kids up for an out-of-this-world adventure packed with fun features.

The ship's top handle allows kids to fly their ship wherever they need to go. The cockpit opens to fit three figures (an exclusive Gekko is included, other figures sold separately) and a push button activates the ramp that can send the exclusive Gekko Rover (included) off for a new adventure on the ground. Lights and sounds add to the fun, while a set of fold-down legs helps the Rocket make a solid landing on almost any terrain.


If your kids already have some PJ Masks toys, then you should already be familiar with the quality from the folks at Just Play. The HQ Rocket continues the tradition of affordably-priced, high-quality toys with some real "WOW" factor. Since I'm recommending this as a potential holiday gift, please be aware that the suggested price is $39.99. If it's being sold at a higher price, you're probably seeing a listing from a third-party seller.
