Toy State Test DriverFrom Toy State comes the Road Rippers Lightning Blast Collection, a selection of free-wheeling vehicles that pack lights and sound into a small package. With a suggested retail of $6.99, that makes the Lightning Blast a great Stocking Stuffer and a quick addition to my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father.

Available vehicles include the Chrysler 300c and a Volkswagen Bus, both in assorted colors and themes. Tested here at Rock Father HQ, this one became a Finley Ride, with it being just the right size to captivate.

The Road Rippers Lightning Blast Collection should be popping up on retail shelves right now. Keep an eye out for them at Walmart, Target, or Toys R Us stores.
