My review by Emptynester Reviews
Mattel has out done themselves this year, with the creation of Cars Lightening McQueen Hawk toy, for the boys on our holiday gift buying list. My grandson is a CARS-AHOLIC! He has watched both movies repetitively enough that the first DVD is already gone to the big DVD heaven in the sky. Aiden loves the short stories on Disney channel, has his bedding and room done in cars, ya he is a cars-aholic for sure!
Cars Lightning McQueen Hawk gets to put a brand new spin on the child’s imagination by incorporating flying into the racing scheme of things. Cars Lightning McQueen Hawk transforms in a jet with a drop down door on the back end that has rocket jets that light up and have the special sounds of jets built right in. This toy transforms its 75+ phrases by whether it is in jet mode or car mode, and believe me they are hilarious! I personally love Cars movies too as I have had to watch them for hours on end, and “Mator” would be my favorite as Larry the Cable Guy just cracks me up!
This toy is a heavier plastic that will not break with one drop from the sky or jet downward spiral, it is built to last and would keep any little boy busy for hours of imaginative play with a new twist of it being transformable and even being able to launch rockets out the wings!
I have seen this toy at many of the big box stores and also on Amazon so I left the link here so you can watch their price as they honestly do have the best prices around!!
