When I was a kid, one of my cousins had a Plymouth Superbird... or at least I thought it was a Plymouth Superbird, and it may have actually been. Or, it could've been the similarly-styled 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, which had a special nosecone and an additional wing placed on the back. Either way, if that car is still floating around the collector's market today, it's worth a ton of cash. For new generations, the folks at Toy State have captured the '69 Daytona as a radio-controlled car as part of their Road Rippers Motor Muscle R/C line. As part of my gig as a Toy State Test Driver, one of these rides was sent to us for review in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house and neighborhood). Simply put: Both Daddy and Addie love it.
As an Official Toy State Test Driver, I get the opportunity to check out some fantastic new toys with my girls here in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house and neighborhood). Being a toy tester means that we are, in fact, "testing" these rides, and unfortunately the results are on occasion, less-than-expected. Sadly, that's the case with the new ROAD RIPPERS MAXIMUM BOOST Vehicles, or at least the one that arrived here at HQ. Maybe it's not a reflection on the whole line, but we definitely got a dud.
Over the past few weeks, we've looked at the entire line of MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels here on The Rock Father. When the folks at MEGA Brands started sending them to us for review here in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our home and neighborhood), we were excited, but not sure what the experience would be. What we've discovered is that these creations born of a partnership between MEGA and Mattel are a lot of fun... and we've saved the best for last. The MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels Urban Agent Stunt Rig is not the biggest, nor the most expensive set in the collection, but it's the one that scored the highest marks here at Rock Father HQ.
If you've been checking out The Rock Father in recent days, then you already know that we've been making our way through the entire line of MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels, which the folks at MEGA Brands sent us for evaluation and review in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house and neighborhood). Today we're going to take a look at one of our favorite entries in the line, the Turbo Tube Build and Collect Vehicles: Bone Shaker, Twin Mill III, and Twinduction.
Continuing our series looking at the full line of MEGA Bloks Hot Wheels - all of which recently arrived here for review in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our neighborhood) - today comes a look at their Rip-cord Racers. Rip-cord toys seem to be making a comeback, and they certainly bring to mind a few toys that I had as a kid back in the 80s. Oddly enough, I can't remember exactly what those toys were... but I can't forget pulling the rip-cords.
Over the past month or so, Addie and I have been spending a lot of time combining two of her favorite activities: Building things, and playing with cars. The folks at MEGA BLOKS sent us (in multiple shipments) their entire line of MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels, a new collection of building sets created in partnership with Mattel. Yes, The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility has been busy in recent weeks, and today we're looking at another "test facility": The MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels Super Stunt Test Facility. Let's get to work...
