Mattel never ceases to amaze me with their cool toys! The company’s brands such as Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Fisher-price, and Barbie are just a few of the well-known named toys that have been enriching children’s lives for decades. My husband still has his favorite Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars from his childhood and now my son is enjoying playing with the same toys his daddy did over 35 years ago. Their fun toys are built tough to last through generations.
If you are shopping for a little boy this season and searching for a toy that can deliver hours of exciting entertainment, look no further than Mattel’s Matchbox Big Boots Dino Adventure Squad Vehicle! Constructed to endure intense action play, this massive vehicle comes equipped with four Big Boots figures, one mean T. Rex Dinosaur figure, one all-terrain vehicle, and accessories. Boys will have a blast racing the truck to the rescue and saving the day by launching the Big Boots figures to capture the wild beast before it unleashes its wrath on the neighborhood.
What is extremely awesome about this toy is there is several ways to catapult the Big Boots into action! You can launch them from the front or side of the vehicle by pulling out the rear fender, send them flying through the air from the crane by pressing a button on the side, or surprise the dino with a sneak attack by having the figure slide down the ramp onto the ATV (included) and zoom out of the back of the squad vehicle after the T.Rex. Also, boys can pretend to have the Big Boots be attacked by grabbing a character with the dinosaur’s mouth and launching it backwards with a push of his tail. Better yet, push down the dino’s head with a Big Boots figure on his tail to hurl the figure up and over! No matter what they decide, the Big Boots will also land on their enormous feet and spring back into action to get ready for the next adventure.
Additionally, the large vehicle has a missile tower letting the user pretend to scope out the dino and send missiles blasting towards the beast. Once the menacing dinosaur has been finally shot down and captured, he can be placed into the dino cage on the truck for safe transporting.
My five year old son absolutely LOVES playing with the Big Boots Dino Adventure Squad toy. As soon as the box arrived, he could not wait to rip it open to play with the toy! He sat on the floor for hours just imagining different ways to take down the dinosaur with the Big Boots characters. Once the weather warms up again I know he is going to want to take it outside and create more exciting scenarios, which is fine since the toy can withstand outdoor play. However, I think he had the most fun placing the characters in the dino’s mouth and hurtling them through space! Too funny! My daughter and husband got in on the fun and tried the Big Boots Dino Adventure Squad out as well! Furthermore, there is the option of expanding the dino adventures by purchasing additional Big Boots figures and the Dino Chopper vehicle making the toy even more exciting.
The vehicle, Big Boots figures, ATV, and accessories provide lots of fun for the price and would make the perfect gift this holiday season! It normally retails for $40.99 , but is available for purchase at Amazon for only $34.97!
