Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!
Parents, kids, and every Disney fan in between have only one thing on their minds: Zootopia, a mammal metropolis and the center of Disney’s latest furry flick. As it turns out, the toy companies were just as wild about it as the rest of us, so hoards of Zooptopia fun will be lining the shelves soon. There’s everything from family fun board games that’ll take game night to the next level to adorable plush, electronic toy cruisers, and so much more. Check out our top picks below:
For anyone who can’t get enough of the mammal metropolis, TOMY’s line of Talking Plush Zootopia characters is perfect for every fan ages 3 and up. Whether your child loves Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, or both, the 12-inch plush dolls can be theirs. And, what’s better than plush dolls? Talking plush dolls, of course. The character-voiced plush will be hitting shelves this spring.
Zootopia Race ‘N Chase (Spin Master)
As the citizens of Zooptoia mysteriously start to disappear, no one man—or rather animal—is safe. In this fast-paced board game designed for kids ages 7 and up, players must make sure the criminals don’t reach Zootopia, and catch them before they strike on any more innocent Zooptians. The player to snag the most criminals, not only saves the day, but is also the winner of the game.
Judy Hopps doesn’t go anywhere without her trusty carrot recorder or her ZPD clip badge, and now neither will your child. The carrot recorder lets kids interrogate suspects (watch out, big brother!) and play back their recorded statements for proof. Everything is fair game now. Availible this spring, kids ages 3 and up will be able to role play Zootopia crime-stopping situations.
Zootopia Aquabeads (International Playthings)
An exciting new Zootopia playset is one of 18 new Aquabeads products that International Playthings will launch this year. Fans of Disney’s latest animated comedy will be able to create aquabead figures inspired by the Zootopia characters. Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, and other assorted characters await young aquabead artists. The Zootopia set also includes the sprayer and layout tray, so the only thing left is for kids to add water and watch as their creations form.
Each miniature box holds a unique character from the movie, including Nick, Judy, Police Chief Bogo, Mayor Lionheart, and tons of other residents of Zootopia’s mammal melting pot. Elephants, goats, bears — you name it, and it’s tucked away inside one of the mystery boxes. Kids can compare, collect, and play with the adorable mini figures.
Looks can be deceiving; Judy Hopps may be a cute bunny, but when she’s on duty, she is a force to be reckoned with. TOMY’s Zootopia Police Cruiser features lights that flash when the car moves, so everyone in Zootopia—or rather your household—will be sure to abide by the law. The cruiser also comes with Judy Hopps and a law-breaking mouse figure so that your child can make sure to keep the citizens of Zootopia in line. Whoever said “all work and no play” definitely never got their hands on this police cruiser.
While Judy Hopps cruises around Zootopia and works hard to restore order, Nick Wilde is on his own mission to wreak havoc. When he finds a parking ticket on his borrowed red convertible, he’s determined to talk his way out of trouble. Let kids ages 3 and up get creative with Nick, his convertible, and the parking meter as they help to meddle his way out of trouble.
March is a big month for Disney Infinity 3.0 fans because the line of sandbox video games is about to grow with the addition of Zootopia figures and power discs. Both Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde figures will be available and are playable in the Disney Infinity 3.0‘s Toy Box Mode. The fun doesn’t stop there; the Zootopia Power Disc Pack with Officer Wilde, Meter Maid Judy, Sahara Square Sands, and Stars Over Sahara Squares disks will be available March 25.
MSRP: $12.99 (figures), $9.99 (power discs)
Zootopia Police Station (TOMY)
Kids should prepare to transport themselves into the nitty gritty job that falls in the hands of the Zootopia Police Department as they help Officer Clawhauser and the Safety Squirrels keep their inmates in check. In addition to these Zootopia characters, the playset also comes with a Safety Squirrel helicopter, two different size elevators, and a jail cell with two doors to accommodate every animal. That’s not all; it even lights up and makes noises that sound like rowdy cellmates so that kids’ imaginations can soar. Kids will hardly be able to wait until fall to get their hands on this play set.
Collectible Dog Tags (Upper Deck)
Upper Deck’s newest line of collectible dog tags is sure to be a hit for all Disney lovers. With a total of 16 Zootopia dog tags, fans and collectors alike will want to get their hands on these as soon as they can. The dog tags hang on a 24-inch chain and every pack also comes with a checklist to make it easy to keep track of your collection.
It only seems fair that the biggest pop star in all of Zootopia also gets her very own glamorous plush doll. This is no ordinary plush: The 15-inch Gazelle doll also plays “Try Everything,” sung by Shakira from the film’s original soundtrack.
