We bought Disney Infinity for the geekdaughter as her main Christmas present last year, and since then both kids have really enjoyed playing it. In fact, I think the geekson probably plays it more than his sister, although she still likes to remind him that it really is her game! There is an amazing amount of depth to the game, with the combination of pre-made adventures in specific Disney-themed worlds and also the immenseley powerful Toy Box mode where kids can use their imagination to build their own adventures using all sorts of different building blocks. Disney have just released their latest characters for the game – Phineas and Agent P from the TV series Phineas and Ferb – and we were sent the pack with both characters in for review.
The Phineas and Ferb characters only work in the Toy Box mode, but they come with their own building blocks for the Toy Box, two power discs that allow you to change the appearance of the Toy Box and they also each have their own mini Adventures to play in the Toy Box. In the Phineas Adventure, players are set into a giant pinball machine and challenged to create a play field where they can destroy waves of oncoming robots. In the Agent P adventure, players can participate in a top-down adventure with side-scrolling elements that pay homage to old school arcade games.
Both kids have really enjoyed playing the Phineas and Agent P characters in the Toy Box, and that’s with never having watched an episode of Phineas and Ferb. Agent P is definitely the favourite and the kids love how he overcomes the bad guys by throwing his hat at them which makes them both giggle every time! The geekson also loves the water slide building blocks that are added to the Toy Box with these characters, although we’ve yet to figure out why Agent P will slide down some of the slides properly but not all of them.
The Phineas and Ferb Toy Box set for Disney Infinity retails at £19.99 and is widely available at retailers which sell Disney Infinity products, including Amazon (affiliate link). As usual I recommend shopping around and looking for special offers to get the best price. Given that it works out at the same price per character as other Disney Infinity sets but you also get the power discs and more in-game content than I’ve seen for other characters I think this is a great buy.
Please note that the Phineas and Ferb Toy Box set is an add-on to the Disney Infinity game, and you need to already own that in order to use these characters with it.
