Racers, start your engines! Find out if you have what it takes to help Lightning McQueen win another Piston Cup with the latest vehicle assortment from Mattel.
The Disney•Pixar Cars 3 Movie Moves Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez are kids’ very own vehicles based on the upcoming Disney•Pixar movie Cars 3. Designed for kids ages 3 and up, the cars are always down for a race and are packed with lights, sounds, and motion-based responses.
We all know and love Lightning McQueen, the lovable race car who had a serious attitude adjustment since we first saw him speed down the race track. He is a custom-built car and is rightfully named for his lightning fast speed. In Cars 3, we’ll see seven-time Piston Cup champion Lightning McQueen preparing for the race of his life to defeat Jackson Storm, a sleek rookie in the next generation of racers, specifically built with the latest technology.
Side bar: In the very first teaser trailer for this movie, we got a sneak peek of Lightning McQueen losing a race to Jack Storm, and he had a serious accident. The trailer was very intense and made me think that he DIED or something, and it was something I couldn’t handle. Lightning McQueen forever. #KaChow
Cruz Ramirez is a new character in this Cars movie, and is Lightning McQueen’s right hand gal in Cars 3. This spunky former racer coupe will train Lightning McQueen for the upcoming Florida 500 to defeat Jack Storm.
Kids will be obsessed with how true to the movie each of these vehicles are. Lightning McQueen’s vehicle has his signature sleek design with a red frame, Rust-eze Bumper Ointment logos, Lightyear tires, and No. 95 on his sides. Cruz Ramirez is colored a shiny yellow and has the Rust-eze Racing Center logo just in front of her doors. Each car also has its own working headlights that light up. The coolest part about these cars is that they react to motion as kids move them forward, backward, left, right, and even upside down!
The cars also say more than 65 iconic sounds and phrases based on how kids move them. Kids will immediately recognize the cheeky and playful phrases from the movies. There are eight different ways kids can get reactions from the cars, my favorites being turning them upside down and making them do a workout dance. Respectively, Lightning McQueen responds with, “Whoah! Aw man, not upside down!” and Cruz Ramirez says, “And reach for your lunch!” (LOL. Relatable.).
Kids will have a blast recreating movie scenes and racing, cruising, and training with their new Cars vehicles. If you’re as excited as me for Cars 3 to come out in theaters, get ready with Movie Moves Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez, and watch the latest trailer below!
