THE REAL DEAL

Young Parents (Singapore) - - THE PLAY ISSUE -

This is the Ul­ti­mate Light­ning McQueen toy for fans of the an­i­mated rac­ing star. The team at Sphero worked with Jay Ward, cre­ative direc­tor from the Dis­ney Pixar movie se­ries,

Cars, to bring the char­ac­ter to life. We were blown away by its re­sem­blance to the real thing – from the way it moves its ex­tremely ex­pres­sive eyes to how it talks. Yes, it comes loaded with 300 phrases, voiced by ac­tor Owen Wilson, just like in the movie.

As we at­tempted to race our re­view set and it banged into a wall, it yelled: “Watch where you’re go­ing!” Don’t worry, you can con­trol the voice vol­ume. It per­forms drifts with ease and can reach a max­i­mum speed of 9.6kmh.

You’ll need to pair it with the app on your iOS or An­droid de­vice and use the on-screen joy­stick. It’s rec­om­mended for kids from age eight, but your preschooler will cope just ne with your su­per­vi­sion – and you’d want to do that on ac­count of its hefty price tag of $469. Find it at www.chal­lenger.com.sg, www. ac­tioncity.com.sg and www.metro.com.sg.
