Speedy has a new character to love. We have introduced him to Bond, James Bond. He hasn't actually seen any of the movies yet but that's not stopping him from loving Bond. Or more specifically, Bond's Aston Martin DB5 from the newest 007 movie Skyfall. Toy State has developed a line of toy cars based on Bond's best models that are available exclusively at Amazon! The line includes cars with lights and sounds and R/C cars.
Apple and Speedy LOVED the Aston Martin DB5 as soon as we opened it! To be honest, I was impressed myself! This is no piddly toy. The 007 car has some weight to it and those 3 nifty buttons at the top pack some power! There are sounds, it plays the Bond theme song (!!), it has lights, AND it is motorized. One touch of the button and the thing revs up and takes off. It works equally well on our carpet and our laminate flooring. Our dog isn't fond of the car but the kids sure are! It took them a little while to figure out which function each button activated but once they did it was smooth rolling. I was surprised at how far the car will go! As you can see in the pic above, Speedy picks it up to play with it as soon as he wakes up in the mornings. The ages are 6+ but my nephew got ahold of it and had some (supervised!) fun when he visited this weekend. He was intrigued by the lights and he would stand up and dance when the music was playing. You see that Speedy wasn't letting it out of his sight.
This new line of James Bond cars will be perfect for any kids (over 6!) on your list! I think they will be a huge hit with any boys (what little boy doesn't want to be a spy?!?) and most little girls too! Apple dressed up as a detective for Halloween so spies and mystery are right up her alley! I appreciate that the kids can use their imagination to play with the car and no other accessories are needed. It's a sturdy car and seems to be well made. That's important because my kids have broken a toy or two in their time. With prices starting under $20, you are sure to find the perfect one! For more gift help visit Toy State and check out their "Find My Toy" selector. And don't forget Skyfall premieres tomorrow!
I received this car for the purpose of review from Child's Play Communication. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
