It’s time to tilt and fly. Kids can have high-flying fun recreating the action seen in the Disney movie Planes, with this RC vehicle that offers role-play remote control, making the plane move as they do. This plane is fully equipped with sounds and phrases that amp up the action for a thrilling air venture. 2 “AAA” and 4”AA” batteries required (not included). Ages 3 years and up. My youngest is a huge fan of Cars and Planes. Dusty Crophopper ranks right up there with McQueen these days. I love how the plane moves with the kids and even has all the fun sayings they know from the movie!
Boom Boom Balloon™ Game from Spin Master™
Pressure mounts with each roll of the dice as players take their turn to poke the balloon. With every roll, the balloon stretches, squishes and strains, wondering if the next poke will make it pop. There are 12 silly-faced balloons inside the box and players can contact Spin Master to order additional balloons. No Batteries Required. Ages 8 years and up. We LOVE this game. LOVE it! The boys get such a kick out of who makes the balloon pop first. We play this often!
