Cars Take Flight Review and Giveaway


Disney has just announced that Cars is taking flight!  Launching this month, Cars Take Flight will include the continuing hit series: Car Toons: Mater’s Tall Tails as well as exclusive merchandise and a contest that will send a family of four to visit the new Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure Park.

My family had a chance to preview the new merchandise including the Lightning McQueen Hawk by Mattel, Disney Store Cars Toon Mater on the Moon Die Cast Set, and Air Mater and Other Tall Tales! 3D book from Random House.  3D is huge with my kids from movies to Wii games, so my daughter ran off immediately with the 3D glasses and the book, giving it a thumbs up.  While my son played with the die cast vehicles, his favorite is the Lightning McQueen Hawk, which is available nationwide now.  In driving mode, Lightning McQueen has driving sounds, but he then transforms to a plane with rocker booster lights and projectiles.  You can see Lightning McQueen Hawk featured in the Disney-Pixar Cars Toons short, “Air Mater.”

Also available as part of the special Cars Take Flight experience is a Cars Take Flight Die Cast assortment from the hit series Mater’s Tall Tales, Color Wonder Disney Coloring Books and Markers featuring Cars Take Flight characters, Car Toons: Air Mater Read-Along Storybook and CD from Disney Press, Cars Toons: Moon Mater Read-Along Storybook and CD from Disney Press and Cars chicken nuggets by Perdue.

    My son is going to be 3 and absolutely loves Cars!!! Lightning McQueen is definitely his favorite but he loves anything about the movies. He recites the movies word for word! It’s so cute when he takes his Lightning McQueen toy and makes it chase a toy truck we have like it’s Mack the truck.

    I don’t think my son can choose a favorite. He loves every character! He can also recite just about every word in both Cars 1 and 2!

    My sons favorite Cars character is definitelt Lightning McQueen! Mine of course is Mater! My son has been begging me for the Lightning McQueen Hawk ever since the commercials started. Glad to hear it is a winner.

    Quick question, is the McQueen Hawk really worth almost $45? I have a hard time thinking about spending that much money for a toy that could, and most likely will, take flight… thanks to my 3 year old. How sturdy is it?
