When the teaser trailer for MARVEL’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 arrived back in December, I was one of the people quick to deem the new “Baby Groot” as “Toddler Groot.” I also said that “toddler Groot is gonna be the toy that kids want,” and behold, Hasbro is answering the call. With Toy Fair in New York happening shortly, new toys are starting to emerge, and the folks at Hasbro just sent over the full details on their MARVEL GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL. 2 DANCING GROOT Figure!
Available for pre-order starting February 15, this new figure dances to Jay and The Americans’ 1964 single, “Come A Little Bit Closer,” and will also dance to nearby audio sources as well.
“I Am Groot.” Start grooving to the music like GROOT with this sound-detecting and limb-shaking DANCING GROOT! Watch as this 11.5-inch electronic figure lights up when it plays and dances to a music clip from the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL. 2 soundtrack. Turn on your own tunes and keep the beat going with DANCING GROOT, which can detect external music too. While your favorite jam is playing, GROOT’s eyes light up and his roots move to the music. Requires 3 AA batteries, included. Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.
Recommended for ages 4+ (or 40+), Dancing Groot should retail for around $35.
