Monsters University Toxic Race Playset Hands on Review

Roll, Pop, Scare! The new Monsters University Toxic Race playset is a cool toy that really fits the three words mentioned earlier. The Toxic Race playset comes with flexible plastic pieces to build the race track, one, Sulley, pop-up figure, and a monster finish line. This playset is very, very simple. Not only is this playset simple to understand, but it is also simple to build. Spin master tried to keep this toy as kid friendly as possible.

Overall, the Toxic race playset receives an A+ for simplicity, but because this toy is so simple it also lacks playability. The main function of this toy is to take any Monsters University pop up figure and roll them down the race track. If you have two pop up figures then you can race them side by side. At the end of the race track there are two magnets that will attract your pop up figures and pop them up when they have won the race! Even though this toy may lack in playability, kids do not seem to mind. My younger sister was fascinated that the figures would pop up and roll down the race track. All in all, the Toxic Race playset is great for kids because it is very simple and fun (to kids). Roll, pop, scare, these are the three words that describe the Toxic Race playset perfectly! From rolling down the playset to popping up at the finish, the Toxic Race playset really can be described in three simple words!

You can purchase the Toxic Race playset at amazon

Roll-a-Scare Johnny Hands On Review

Pop up figures have gained quite a reputation. They are extremely entertaining and kids love how unique and fun they are. Disney Pixar’s Roll a Scare Johnny is a pop up figure that is just as good as any pop-able figure. Johnny is extremely easy to close and just as easy to open up. He also has an extremely cool metal plate that pops him open. Instead of a random design for the metal plate, Spin Master turned the metal plate into the student’s ID. This adds a cool touch and a little more personality into the toy. Not only do you have a cool Johnny figure, but you also have Johnny’s ID! Roll, pop, and scare! These are the three features that make the Johnny roll a scare figure fun and scary at the same time!

Sulley Monster Mask Hands On Review

It might not be Halloween yet, but it doesn’t need to be the scariest time of the year to get a good scare on! With the new Spin Master Sulley Monster Mask you can scare your friends all day long. This mask is not just your ordinary mask. This mask has cool features that make it a lot more fun and scary! If you put the mask on there is a spot to place your chin. If you move your mouth the mouth on the mask will also move! That is not the only movable part on the mask. The eyebrows also move! If you open up the mouth, the eye brows move with it! This just gives the mask more fun features.

The mask is very easy to put on and take off. There are two straps on the back that will wrap around your head. These straps can be tightened and loosed to fit your head. Overall the mask is cute, fun, and a little bit scary. The only issue that I faced while using the mask was that it pushed my nose in a little bit too much and made it a little uncomfortable, but that may not happen to everyone because everyone has a different facial structure. For the most part, the mask is comfortable and fun to use. Halloween or no Halloween anytime can be scare time with the Sulley Monster Mask!

You can purchase the Sulley Monster Mask at amazon.com

My Scare Pal Sulley Review

Sulley, the monster, is back! He is here to learn how to scare his way to success! Wait did I just say learn how to scare? That’s right; Sully is not a big and bad monster yet. He is still in college! The new Disney Pixar movie Monsters University has inspired a whole new line up of toys! These toys are cute, fun, and full of excitement. The new My Scare Pal Sulley doll is one of the new play sets inspired by the Monsters University movie. This toy is more than just your average stuffed animal. It has the ability to move its mouth and eyebrows when you hold its stomach. Sulley can also talk if you turn on the toy. By pushing down on its stomach, Sulley will say a phrase or something funny! If you shake him, he will change what he says.

Now all if these features sound awesome, but how well does this toy actually perform? In all honesty, My Scare Pal Sulley works great! Not once has this toy stopped working or stopped performing properly. Even after the thousands of times that my sister has pushed on this toy, Sulley has not once budged. This is a good sign of durability. Kids can be very abusive on their toys, and by keeping this toy simple and compact Sulley will not be broken anytime soon. Durability, playability, and funability (do you like my combination of fun and ability?); all of these traits describe the new My Scare Pal Sully doll perfectly! My Scare Pal sully is a cute little monster that will keep your kids entertained with his funny catch phrases and adorable little smile.

The man of Steel movie is out and that means that new Man of Steel toys will also be released! DC Universe has already created a new Man of Steel action figure that will surly blow you away! This Superman may seem like your ordinary action figure, with movable/pose-able body parts, but this action figure is SUPER SIZED! 31 inches tall (79 cm), this action figure is perfect for showing your support for the new Man of Steel movie.

Now that you know some features of this toy, you are probably wondering what my opinions are on this action figure. When it comes to super heroes, I can never get enough! Superman is one of the classic heroes that I have grown to adore. This action figure not only represents Superman really well, but it also looks just like the Superman in the Man of Steel movie. Even though this toy lacks play ability, it is perfect for modeling or posing. This action figure has 7 points of articulation. This makes the action figure very easy to pose. The DC Universe 31 inch superman is a great toy for any Man of Steel fans because it is easy to pose and looks just like the Superman in the movie!
