I was delighted to receive an email from Debenhams recently, inviting the boys to choose some toys from their Disney Cars toy range. Debenhams has a great selection of toys that can be ordered online or purchased in store and so we were certainly spoiled for choice.
We all sat together at the laptop and chose some toys that would give the boys plenty of variety. The toys arrived just a couple of days later and the boys were understandably very excited about their special delivery.
So let me start by quickly saying that the toys here were chosen by us and all photos and opinions are our own. We were entirely free to choose what the boys would like from the Disney Cars selection of toys and to put them all to the ultimate preschooler test.
Here’s what the boys chose….
DISNEY CARS 3 ~ GIANT FLOOR PUZZLE
Jack (3) absolutely loves a puzzle. We’ve been doing puzzles every since he was little, so I knew that this would go down well with him.
This Disney Cars 3 50-piece Giant Floor Puzzle took Jack about 40-minutes to do all by himself. There was no way he was letting mummy help him with this one. It has since been dismantled and put back together numerous times.
The puzzle creates a lovely bright and colourful picture which will eventually make a great display on his bedroom wall.
DISNEY CARS 3 ~ MOVIE MOVES LIGHTNING MQUEEN AND CRUZ RAMIEREZ
Never mind the boys, this is my favourite! Movie Moves Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez are motion activated and say over 65 sounds and iconic phrases. The cars have working headlights and taillights, and eyes that move like they do in the movie.
These are brilliant interactive toys and great for imaginative play. Hudson has played with Lightning for days on end and there is no sign of him getting bored anytime soon. He’s been whizzing the car around the lounge like lightning himself, using his road mat as a race track and likes to repeat all the sounds that Lightning makes.
Jack seems to prefer Cruz because ‘he is yellow’. Who am I to argue? Cruz Ramierez has all the same features as Lightning and because both boys have their own favourites, there have been no arguments. It’s been nice watching them play nicely together. Hallelujah!
DISNEY CARS 3 ~ TURBO RACER RC CRUZ RAMIEREZ 1:24
The Debenhams website suggests that this radio controlled Cruz is suitable from age 3+, however, both boys (Jack, 3 and Hudson, 21mths) are able to operate it with ease so don’t be put off by that if you are buying gifts.
The 2 channel radio controlled Cruz has full movement and has a turbo speed function which Jack absolutely loves. He has mastered the controls and has the car chase him around the room at full speed.
This toy has been the biggest hit with Jack for sure but if he isn’t playing with Cruz, then you’ll find Daddy at the control.
DISNEY CARS 3 – 52 PIECE ART CASE
This art case includes a really good little collection of crayons, pencils, markers, paints and stickers. Having all the stationary contained within a little case certainly makes for a tidier and less stressful colouring session for mummy.
We’ve been busy colouring pictures for Nanny for Mothers Day and the boys have also enjoyed surprising Daddy with their masterpieces, on his arrival home from work.
I am really happy with all the Disney Cars toys that we received from Debenhams. They will definitely be played with loads by the boys. All of the toys we received are of really good quality and have certainly kept the boys nicely entertained this last week. I would highly recommend these toys to any car crazy little ones.
The Disney Cars range is currently on sale at Debenhams with some products available at up to 50% off. How can you go wrong?
