Dawson’s back! Our apologies for the delay, but kindergarten’s been taking up a lot of our time. Now that we’re in a good groove with things, we’re ready to start blogging again.
To celebrate Dawson’s first year of kindergarten, mom picked up this awesome Lightning McQueen Hawk, the official Mattel 1:55 scale diecast from the Pixar animated short, “Air Mater”. It’s part of the new “Cars Take Flight” lineup of diecast cars.
When we say “diecast”, we’re not kidding… This thing is full diecast. It is definitely solid and well worth the sticker price of $5.99. We got this car a few weeks ago and it’s certainly racked up a lot of miles of playtime since we got it. But let’s face it… Anything Lightning McQueen is guaranteed to be played with at our house… more than any other toys.
It was enough fun to motivate a 5-year-old to make another YouTube video. Check out his newest video review:
And because the video does not do this toy any justice in the detail department, here are some pictures too:
As you can see, the eyes have a really nice tinted plastic shield over them. This detail is especially nice. The logos and paint job are also very sharp. Once Dawson moves on from this toy, it’s going on display in his room. It’s definitely one of our favorites.
We’re just starting to find new Cars toys in the stores (it’s not just Lightning and Finn McMissile anymore). So be on the lookout for some more Cars Toys reviews in the near future.
We’re really glad to be back. So, please leave us a comment below and let us know what you think. You can also subscribe to the blog and to our YouTube channel. Thanks for visiting!
