Collectors of all things Simpson will want to snap up this playset of Springfield’s home for senior citizens, complete with a figure of the town’s grumpiest geezer, Jasper. The castle features Intelli-Tronic voice activation, so when any of the 32 compatible action figures are connected, they can spew out recognizable Simpsons one-liners. This playset supports over 30 choice politically incorrect phrases, from Homer’s "Maybe it’s time we put Grampa in a home" to Bart’s "You're father was a loser, and his father. It's genetic, man." The retirement castle measures 6.69 by 7.95 by 5 inches and includes a removable potted plant and TV set, and its default sound is a charming fart noise.
Simpsons Series 8 Springfield Retirement Castle with Jasper Playset
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Okay, is it just me or is it really bizarre to have this be one of the playsets that Disco Stu works with? This is a great set, mostly because it comes with Jasper, one of the most dryly amusing characters on the Simpsons. It also has a bunch of great lines from Grandpa and a few for Hans Moleman. Maybe it's just me, but I find the oldster Simpsons characters both hilarious and touching. Playmates missed one touch which would have really made this set. It needs the notice on the door saying "Please do not discuss the outside world." Anyhow, one of the better playsets in the last few assortments!
This entertaining diarama featuring Jasper in his humble retirement home is truly a quality educational tool for children. I have tried other "educational" products like MathBlast and that plastic ATM intended to help children learn to use a bank, but I believe that this Simpson's playset is much more successful in preparing your child for reality. Kids can learn techniques that they can use later (much later) in their lives when they too are living in retirement homes - techniques such as "how to navigate within cramped living quarters", "how to cope with a broken television", and "decorating your room to combat depression." After all, when we too are facing death in a run-down nursing home, I would feel good knowing that I've been properly prepared for this misery.
Since it is an older product the batteries in it corroded so the sound doesn't work. Since my son thinks Santa brought it, I'm just keeping it.
