When I first saw SUPER WINGS on Sprout a year or so ago, I imagined the pitch meeting for the show going something like "What if Disney's PLANES turned into sentient robots like the TRANSFORMERS... but taught quality lessons to kids ages 3-6?" That pretty much sums up yet another entry in our girls' regular viewing, with SUPER WINGS being a Rock Father-approved show with a catchy theme song and plenty of adventure. It particularly struck Little Finley's interest, a perfect companion to CARS, CHUGGINGTON, BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES, DINOTRUX and other vehicularly-themed programs that have made the jump into the off-screen world of toys. Yes, later this year, Auldey Toys will launch a full line of transformable figures and playsets, and they'll debut at Toy Fair in NYC next month. Here's an early preview!

Super Wings™ World Airport Playset
