Remember when just about every little girl carried a Cabbage Patch doll and Tickle Me Elmo was on every little kid’s wish list? Well something tells me that this holiday season it will be a McQueen and Mater Cars 2 takeover because Disney and Pixar have got some really cool toys rolling out and racing into toy stores. And I snagged some of these toys courtesy of Disney Consumer Products and I must say that I was wowed.
Let me tell you about some of the things I received in my Disney swag bag:
- Cars 2 Lights & Sounds Die Cast Vehicles
My son loves cars small enough to fit in his little hand. These cars have working headlights, realistic sounds and hilarious phrases from the movie. The characters include: Finn McMissile, Lightning McQueen, Mater, Francesco and more.
Characters include: Finn McMissile, Mater, Holley Shiftwell, Rod “Torque” Redline and more.
- Crash ‘Ems
Just Play Products
Because my son is still in the mode where he likes to throw things at my head (and a die cast car upside the head can hurt), it was especially nice to see this plush toy in the bag.
Whether tossing ‘em, slamming ‘em, or crashing ‘em, you will have a blast with these interactive, plush cars. And if your two-year-old decides to throw it at your head too, it won’t hurt at all.
- The Grand Prix Microphone
My 4-year-old grabbed up this phone and started singing like a little rockstar!
It’s a cordless mix with built-in speaker. McQueen says 3 lines from CARS 2. The mic includes Car sound effects and on/off button. And 3xAAA batteries required (not included).
If I were you, I’d grab up these toys early in the season because they are REALLY cool and probably will be sold out by fall, especially the Lightening McQueen Laptop. My friend Connie Ott at MiscFinds4U.com is giving away the WHOLE bag. So head over there and sign up. Sorry but my kids tore into the bag as soon as I got home! Thanks Disney!
Cars 2 hits the track on June 24, 2011, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D in select theaters
