What It Is
What It Is
It's been more than a decade since Dr. Dreadful first made his grotesquely delicious appearance in toy boxes. While the toys have changed somewhat over time, the basic premise is the same. Kids can become mad scientists, like Dr. Dreadful, and make all kinds of gross things to eat.
The Zombie Lab lets kids make more than 40 treats and then eat all the gross things they make—everything from Zombie Barf and Zombie Skin to Bubbling Brains. Follow the directions and use the mixes and water to create the treats. (Most of the mixes are merely powdered candy that are activated by water.) The Zombie Lab comes with one brain molded beaker, a zombie head, a gear base, three body parts molds, a cup, and a syringe.
The Zombie Lab is part of a whole line of Doctor Dreadful toys that work together.
Why It’s Fun
This is great, silly fun, and kids will love grossing out their parents. The treats are pretty tasty, too. It's easy for kids to use and inspires imaginative play.
Who It’s For
The Doctor Dreadful Zombie Lab is for ages 5 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Parents who are concerned about kids eating too much sugar should, of course, monitor consumption, but the portions are small.
This is messy. You'll want to set this up in a place where a little mess won't be a problem. You'll also want to clean up everything after play using very warm water.
Most adults will find this stuff insanely sweet. Be prepared if you're asked to sample some Zombie skin.
