When is a ride not a ride? That’s the question I faced when looking at TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES T-Sprints, a new type of TMNT play from the folks at Playmates Toys. Following the successful jump into the diecast aisle with last year’s launch of the T-Machines line, T-Sprints is something completely new in that it’s sorta like miniature soap-box racing, but with familiar Turtles in the race. Each T-Sprints figure can be revved-up (the old-school rev-and-go action) and let go to see them appear to be “sprinting” across a flat surface. Their arms and legs move, and it does look like they’re running – it’s cute. Then you can drop them into one of their rides (each figure has one included), and they scoot along.

T-Sprints

I originally posted about the T-Sprints line back in December when the Playmates crew sent-over a first-look at their commercial for these new toys – a spot which I’m sharing again below since it very clearly shows how these work in-action:

The rides themselves are a simple, lightweight hollow plastic shell with no moving parts. It’s more of an illusion of driving, but the kids don’t mind. The Rock Daughters have both enjoyed T-Sprints as a part of their growing TMNT collection, and they’re the right size to take with on adventures as well. Last Saturday, little Finley brought her T-Sprints with to ballet – the perfect thing to play with in the hallway with the other kids while waiting for big sister Addie’s overlapping class to finish up.
