I know Christmas is over but I have a couple of great toys that I feel like I really need to share with you all, since we all know that after Christmas comes birthday after birthday right? Well for us “Bug’s” Birthday comes in February so we are already working on getting the party planned and put together! I was given the opportunity to review a couple of toys from Mattel Brands over Christmas and I have to say we were very excited to get the opportunity and it was a mighty hard choice to make in choosing the items we whished to review since Mattel has always been a brand favorite in our house! But we finally decided on the Cars Toons Monster Truck Wrastlin' Ring and a World Wrestling Entertainment® Flexforce™ Big Talkin’™ Figure (which we were sent Triple H)

I say our thoughts but it’s really “Bug’s” thoughts since he is the one that has been the one enjoying both of these toys! I can’t tell you how happy the little man was on Christmas morning when he opened both of them especially the Cars Toons Monster Truck Wrastlin' Ring, since it was the one thing he asked for over and over! I’m so happy that both of these arrived a few days before Christmas for “Bug”!
Naturally the first item we decided to review was the Cars Toons Monster Truck Wrastlin' Ring and according to my husband it is very quick and easy to put together and in no time we were having full on Cars wrestling matches!!! This toy is super simple yet brings hours of fun and imaginative play for “Bug” and his friends…..well I’ll admit for me and Chad as well! It says for ages 4 and up but “Bug” who is soon to be 3 in February didn’t have any problems what so ever figuring out how to use the wrestling ring and all it’s neat little features like the sling shot from the side rope and the lever that makes the little monster trucks pop up and move across the ring! I myself think this is one of the coolest Cars toys on the market and that could be because I’m a die hard wrestling fan and I’ve been watching all kinds of wrestling since I was 7 years old and “Bug” has grown up thus far watching it each and every night it’s on TV!
Next, we decided to check out the World Wrestling Entertainment® Flexforce™ Big Talkin’™ Figure Triple H, first I just want to say that we didn’t get to chose the figure we were sent but I for one was quite happy to see that we were sent Triple H himself!!! I’ve been a fan of Triple H since I can remember and “Bug” has also grew up enjoying Triple H and knew immediately who the figure was and couldn’t wait to get him out of the package! He has spent quite some time playing with Triple H and is now repeating each of the fun phrases that he says when you twist his upper body! Triple H also came with a table that can be put together and played with where it will break in half when it’s touched or Triple H is body slammed on to it!
Both of the toys we were sent is very high quality and very durable and we have all really enjoyed having them around and playing with them on a daily basis, and “Bug” has really enjoyed them more than any of us….as well he should have but I can tell you they have both been pretty popular with all of the kiddos that come around!
Once again Mattel has proven why they are one of the top toy companies as far as our family goes and we could not be happier with both of the items we were sent to review and I can tell you that Mattel and their family of brands will be a staple in our toy room for many years to come!!
We all three highly recommend the Cars Toons Monster Truck Wrastlin' Ring and World Wrestling Entertainment® Flexforce™ Big Talkin’™ Figures, they are both super fun and we feel they are high quality and well worth the money you pay for them and they are also super affordable! So be sure to keep them in mind when buying for Birthdays and other special events!
To purchase World Wrestling Entertainment® Flexforce™ Big Talkin’™ Figures and/or the Cars Toons Monster Truck Wrastlin' Ring check out your local toy stores or wherever Mattel family of brands are sold!
