When we were asked to take a look at the new Disney Pixar Cars Gear Up McQueen it wasn’t just Joshua that was excited. The idea of having interchangeable pieces for Lightening McQueen so he had 5 different styles certainly appealed to me too!
When it arrived I loved the size as it wasn’t too big but yet still chunky enough for little fingers and still robust enough that it would take an accidental dropping, however I had slight concerns that Joshua might struggle with the changing of the pieces.
I needn’t of worries as he got stuck straight into it changing him straight away and found the side panels, glasses and roof super easy to swap over, although the bumper pieces were a little trickier than the others to master, but that did only take a few minutes to master too.
Joshua’s favourite look for Lightening McQueen is a busy about town look, with wings as that means its quicker to get around ‘Joshua aged 4’ and he tyre goggles as it means he can see better and not bump into anything while out in town, as town is busy! (out of the mouths of babes)
Lightening McQueen also has workable wheels so its super easy when his wings are tired (apparently according to Joshua wings do get tired you know!) He can take to the carpet for some driving manoeuvres!
With a current RRP of £32.99 for Disney Gears Up McQueen I can imagine that this completely lovable fella will be on many a Christmas list this year, and with 5 cars in one if you include all his looks there will be no doubt some happy little folks out there!
