A complete starter collection right out of the box, or a great addition to an existing collection, kids will love bringing to life new races and adventures with Lightning McQueen, Strip Weathers (aka the King), Chick Hicks, Chuck Armstrong, Eugene Carbureski, Billy Oilchanger, James Cleanair, Claude Scruggs, Davey Apex, Haul Inngas and Aiken Axler. As with all of the CARS vehicles, the detail is impressive, and the quality is top-notch, with the characters looking as if they'd driven right off the screen. With the way they come packed in a flip-top box, this is also a nice set for the "adult collector" looking for a special new piece.
In Finley's bedroom (which has her famous "Rock Daughter Edition" Hot Wheels Bed from Step2), there's a little Hot Wheels dresser in which she keeps much of her collection of toy vehicles. On top of it, she often places her vehicles from CARS and PLANES, and I once found her sitting on the bed staring at them with a giggle. I asked her what was going on, and she pointed at the vehicles - each staring back at her with the "eyes" on their windshields. "I was trying to sleep," she said, "but these CARS, they just crack me up!" She burst into laughter before making yet another attempt at racing into dreamland.
The Disney•Pixar CARS Piston Cup Collection is Rock Father-approved, and will be featured in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide.
