This summer, DreamWorks Animation presents a new feature film with a loveable character who dreams big! Racing into movie theatres on July 17, “Turbo” is the story of a snail who desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced snail life and one day be the greatest racer in the world. After a freak accident, Turbo suddenly possesses the power of incredible speed and embarks on a journey to achieve his dream. Mattel and DreamWorks Animation bring the story to life with toys capturing key movie moments and characters that allow kids to play out their favorite scenes or create their own adventures. The Turbo Shell Racers vehicles and Stunt Set assortment are small-scale toys great for anytime, anywhere play – perfect for summer travel with the family.
When we received the TURBO Ring of Fire Stunt Set my toddler went nuts and insisted that she play with it right away. We go to the movies a lot and our theater has had the giant Turbo snail in the lobby for a few months now. Every time she saw it she would tell me how she wanted to see the movie and the Stunt Set was just a reminder that the movie would be coming out soon and allowed her to play at home. She happens to love cars, so I knew this set would be a huge hit with her and sure enough it was. We put it together quickly and then she got to work making Turbo and his friends race around the track and through the ring of fire. I really like that there aren’t a million pieces to this set and no batteries are required! We did manage to see Turbo when it came out and since the toddler had been playing with this set, she already knew some of the characters from the movie.
P.S. It’s a very cute movie!
Turbo Stunt Set Assortment
The action-packed Turbo Stunt Set assortment is the perfect place to park, race and play with Turbo Shell Racers vehicles. The assortment includes two thrillingly challenging sets that bring big movie moments to life in the playroom. The “Ring of Fire” set has a harrowing vertical loop that must be braved in order to launch through a ring of fire while the “Zip Line Stunt Race” set recreates a key competition scene in the film. To get started with the “Ring of Fire” set simply load up Shell Racers into the launch tube, pull the trigger and the snails are blasted through the vertical loop toward a speedy exit with a jump through a fire ring obstacle. The “Zip Line Stunt Race” takes kids on a zip line racing adventure. To begin the free-falling fun, load two Turbo Shell Racers on the vertical lift, crank them to the top of the telephone pole and pull the release lever. Watch as the snails make a fast paced descent down the line! Each set sold separately and includes one Turbo Shell Racer.
