What kid does not love Toy Story? I remember when I saw the very first movie when I was in high school. It has been wonderful to share all three movies with my own children. They are classics. So, when Mattel shared with me the new Toy Story Toymation stop motion video, The Great RC Race, I was excited to share it with the boys and with you guys! This video created by Mattel was created using the new Toy Story RC’s World vehicles and figures.
We were sent the RC’s World Play Set, vehicles and figures for review a few weeks ago. Before I could even get the packages completely opened the boys were playing with them! I think that Graham was a little disappointed at first that the cars were not actual RC cars so make sure your children are aware that these are not actual RC’s. Davis really was intrigued with the included RC car that came with the Play Set (probably because of the bright colors and eyes). You will need to purchase a separate car if you want to race the vehicles with the play set, so this is one more thing to be aware of.
Both of the boys loved placing the cars on the RC’s World Play Set and launching them forward (just press the red button on the back of the play set). Graham is older and really got into the imaginative play and enjoyed placing the cars on the ramp and filling them up with gas. Simply pull the cars backwards in order to set the wheels and then press the red buttons on the back to launch them without the play set. The figures are sold separately and include removable wings/rocket launchers and Woody comes with a removable helmet. The figures bend so that they can ride the cars and each car has an adjustable piece to hold the figures on during the race.
You can purchase the Toy Story RC’s World Play Set for about $26, vehicles for about $20 a piece and figures for about $11 a piece. These would be a fun birthday gift idea for the Toy Story lover in your home.
