Thinkway Toys is a company that creates some of the best and innovative toys on the market today. Their creations have been going strong since the early 90’s and have included products focusing on some of the greatest children’s movies including: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Little Mermaid, Pocahantas, Toy Story and Happy Feet. Thinkway toys are incredibly well made and hold up to the constant attention your child will give them. The batteries last for an acceptable length of time and most of the toys will shut themselves off after they have not been used for a few minutes to save on power.
The Lazer Stunt Chaser is a remote control type of vehicle that makes any other remote vehicle pale in comparison. A handheld laser gun is used to move a red light across the room wherever the child directs it. The chaser car then follows that light wherever it moves to, and at a very fast speed. There are also controls on the gun that allow the child to move it backward and to each side in order to get it out of tight spaces or make it go on the included ramp. The car itself can be charged on a battery pack that it hooks up to instead of having to replace batteries in the car periodically. The battery back powers the car for about 5 to 6 charges before needing to be replaced and the Lazer Stunt Chaser car runs at full speed for about 20 – 25 minutes before starting to slow down.
My son absolutely loves the Lazer Stunt Chaser. He has a number of remote control vehicles but I think part of the fascination with this one is how fast he can make it go. It’s also very easy for him to control because all he has to do is hold down the trigger and point the light where he wants the car to move to.
The Happy Feet Two toys are a great purchase for kids who love this heart warming movie. The Dancing Erik captures the cuteness and playfulness of the character and it’s even great for kids who haven’t seen the movie. My son has seen the first Happy Feet but not the second and he still enjoys watching the penguin dance and sing. The music that is included makes Erik dance or you can hook up an external audio source and watch him dance along to that. Your child’s voice can also make Erik speak and dance. 4 AA batteries are required and run the toy for a decent length of time before needing to be replaced. Other dancing characters are available as well as regular figurines and plush animals.
Thinkway Toys is really a great company that produces well made and interactive toys. While a number of toys are played with for 10 minutes and then sit on the shelf for weeks before seeing action again, the entire line of Thinkway products will remind your child of the movie and will inspire them to laugh and use their imagination to play.
