Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few months you can’t have missed the hype the has surrounding the release of Cars 3.
We were lucky enough to go along to a screening recently which left us all buzzing from the return of these lovable characters to the big screen.
Along with new film releases always comes a whole host of merchandise that children are drawn towards to keep the movie alive once they return home.
Ordinarily I’m normally a bit of a meanie when it comes to things like this as they are often gimmicky toys that fail to keep my children’s attention for more than five minutes!
However Cars 3 has bought with it a fantastic range of toys that have kept my boys occupied for hours on end which is nothing short of a miracle if you know my youngest two.
Lego is always a big hit in our house and the Cars 3 Junior Easy To Build version that is aimed at children aged 4-7 has been a fantastic addition to our collection.
The easy to follow instructions and recognisable characters make it a toy that Frankie can happily return to again and again and get the satisfaction that he can create it all by himself.
At this time of year I am always looking for toys that are easy to take on trips out to keep them amused on long journeys or when I need to try and keep them busy while we are having a meal.
This is where the mini racers and figural crayons are perfect.
The cars can be easily raced up and down in smaller spaces and crayons are always a go to, to let them get creative.
The quirky design of the crayons with the name and figure of each car was a real delight and they have also been used as race cars an several occasions too!
We have been thinking a lot about getting things ready for ‘back to school’ and one thing I like to do is get key rings for their book bags so they can be easily recognised and hopefully not lost within the first few weeks.
These super cute soft keyrings are the perfect way to adorne any book bag…or sneak onto your own keys if you are anything like my husband!
If cuddly is your thing then the squishy Guido is the one for you. He has in fact paved the way to become top choice for a bedtime cuddle here.
I have saved the best for last though which comes in the form or a remote control Cruz Ramirez car.
It is the perfect way for children to try their hand at becoming a racer themselves with an easy to use control pad that has simple manoeuvres for even the youngest of children to get to grips with.
This car has given them hours of fun and more than a few arguments about who is going to drive it!
I would love to know who your favourite character is from the new film and which one this fantastic toys would be on your little ones list.
*We were given these toys for the purpose of this review and they are all my own honest opinions.
