LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 (LEGO)
With the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 & 2 sets, kids will get to build with more than 500 pieces and gear up to take on the undead. Once all the pieces are built, Abby, Erin, Jillian, and Patty can hop in the Ecto-1 car, while Kevin gears up on the Ecto-2 motorbike to speed after Mayhem. With so many pieces, including the five mini-figures, a Mayhem figure, and a PKE Meter, kids will be able to play out all their favorite moments from Ghostbusters.
Ghostbusters Electronic Proton Pack (Mattel)
Kids can help the new team of Ghostbusters when they gear up with Mattel’s Electronic Proton Backpack and get to ghost hunting. When kids place the dark mini-figure in their blaster, its silhouette projects onto walls to give off a paranormal effect. Whether kids (or kids at heart) decide to recreate their favorite moments from the film or imagine all new adventures, the Proton Pack takes Ghostbusters playtime to the next level.
Ghostbusters RC Classic-Ecto-1 (NKOK Inc)
NKOK’s Ecto-1 RC seamlessly rides forward and backward so that kids can chase away the ghosts in speedy style. The 14-inch, film-inspired replica has working headlights, taillights, and roof lights, as well as fun sound effects. No ghost will stand a chance against this ride.
Ghostbusters Collection (Build -A-Bear Workshop)
I ain’t afraid of no ghost– especially not this adorable one. Before kids snag their ticket to Ghostbusters, they’ll have to make a trip to Build-A-Bear so that they’ll have a super cute plush friend to accompany them to the movie theater. Kids can choose from different characters in the collection, including Ghostbuster Bear—an all white bear with the film’s logo on the paw—as well as the Supernatural Ghostbusters Bear Set and the Ghost Set. If kids decide not to buy the full sets, there are tons of accessories—like the Ghostbusters T-shirt and the Proton Pack—also available separately.
LEGO Dimensions (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment)
There’s good news and bad news…The good news is that LEGO Dimensions’ Ghostbusters Starter Pack lets fans spookify their LEGO Dimensions experience with an entire level where players must fight Gozer in order to save New York City. The pack includes characters from the original film, like a classic buildable Peter Venkman LEGO minifigure, which are all playable in the game. Now, for the bad news; the LEGO Dimensions Ghostbusters Story Pack comes with tons of cool additions inspired by the reboot—like puzzle-packed levels, buildable figures, and new modes and features—but fans will have to hold off until September when it will hit store shelves.
Ghostbusters Slimer Figure (Mattel)
In the new Ghostbusters reboot, Slimer is back and more gluttonous than ever. The Ghostbusters Slimer figure captures the true spirit (and slime) of the ghost. When kids pull on his tongue he lets out an explosive scream which he then tops off with a gargling noise. If that doesn’t sound weirdly enticing enough, when kids twist his arms, the film’s classic theme song plays. Needless to say, the entire family will be poking and prodding at Slimer all summer long.
Ghostbusters Metal Die Cast Figures (Jada Toys)
Jada Toy’s Metal Die Cast Figures just got even better thanks to the new edition of Ghostbusters 4-inch and 6-inch figures. For long-time fans of the original ‘80s film (shout-out to all the parents who are geeking out more than their kids right now) the Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore figures will be a must-have for the Ghostbusters shrine in the basement. If that’s not enough to make you shriek like a kid again, Jada also has a twin pack available that includes a Venkman and Slimer figure. Deep breathes.
MSRP: 4-inch Figures, $9.99-$12.99; 6-inch Figures, $19.99-$12.99
Ghostbusters Artist Series Puzzle Collection (USAopoly)
Whether your family needs an escape from the heat, or you’re looking for something awesome to frame for your basement wall, these Ghostbusters puzzles will be the perfect way to keep everyone busy. Both puzzles in the collection contain more than 500 pieces that kids and parents will get to piece together in order to create the artistic masterpiece.
6-inch Ghostbusters Figures (Mattel)
Some movies are better left untouched, but with all-female leads as hilarious as this reboot, the film is nearly a shoe-in for a comedy hit. Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, Patty Tolan, and Jillian Holtzmann are decked out in their ghost-chasing attire in 6-inch dolls that kids won’t be able to put down. The authentic movie outfits and accessories do both the classic film and all-new reboot proud.
Ghostbusters Pop! (Funko)
Over the course of the next couple of moths, it’s a given that everyone’s Ghostbusters memorabilia is going to double in size. If you and your family don’t have Funko’s Ghostbusters Pop! on your shelves, you will all surely be missing out on the adorable film-inspired figures.
Until next week, you can find me watching the Ghostbusters trailer on repeat. Join in on the fun:
