My husband Kevin might have been slightly more excited than my kids when the delivery man brought us a package full of Toy State cars. I can’t say I really blame either of them because their cars are really cool. In fact, we’ve already asked Santa to bring one of the trucks and the helicopter to our house on Christmas Eve.
But like I was saying, the cars rock. First, I have to start with the 007 cars. We received the Aston Martin DB5 a la Casino Royale. It has four buttons on the top so that kids and adults alike can enjoy playing the theme song, hearing gun fire, seeing headlights and motorized driving. This is such a cool toy, but could also be a gift for any James Bond paraphernalia collector. The suggested retail is $12.99 and recommended for kids over the age of 6.
I think Ryan’s favorite of all is the Motor Muscle 1969 Dodge Daytona R/C. Even though he is too young to really know how to control it and needs his big sister’s help when he accidentally crashes it into the wall. This one’s Emma’s favorite, too. There is something about radio controlled cars that’s so much fun. This car has held up well to a lot of abuse. The car’s remote matches the design of the car, which is nice. This toy sells for around $30 and is recommended for kids over the age of 7.
We also received the Ford Fiesta Hatchback and the Mini Hatchback. The Toy State Hatchbacks are like mini versions of the customized cars you see on the street. They are free-wheeling and have unique rotating speaker beds that light up and play music when you lift the hatch. These retails for $9.99 a piece and appropriate for those age 3 and above.
One lucky person will receive all of these cars from Toy State, ARV $65!
Samples were received for consideration.
