UPDATE: Congrats to noreen, who won the Toy Story Zing-Ems Playset! And sorry for the delay in announcing the winner. (How long can I blame baby brain? :) Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. Thanks to everyone who participated!
It was a fast-moving and bumpy race to the finish, as CC pitted Buzz Lightyear, Jessie and Rex (or Trixie, as she calls him) against each other during playtime with Mattel's new Toy Story Zing-Ems Playset this weekend.
The new playset (SRP: $14.99), which we had the chance to review thanks to the Mattel Disney Insider program, combines pinball-inspired action with cute 2-inch versions of Buzz Lightyear and the Toy Story gang (SRP: $6.99 per two-pack) for a portable kid-friendly thrill ride.
CC turned it into a race between the three characters, and you'll see that Trixie/Rex was the winner. She had a great time flinging the figures around the space-age race track, placing obstacles in their path and generally wreaking havoc at the dinner table.
The playset is a fun opportunity for getting kids to use their imaginations. Whether it's a race for points or a chance to see how many times each character can get around the set in one minute, kids ages 3+ should have lots of fun with this one.
