This week supply has been added of just 6 new toy lines from Mattel, 3 each from its Hot Wheels and Mega Bloks range for registered retailers to purchase from the online B2B wholesale website Baby Brands Direct.
Hot Wheels is an exciting brand of die-cast car toys with multiple accessory playsets ranging from track sets to activity centres. First launched in 1968, today the brand is globally recognised and attracts some of the most prestigious auto mobile brands including Lamborghini to have its models made. Its design team also creates very apt transfers of licenced characters including Disney. The Toy Story 4 cars are a great example of this in which each model is easily identifiable to each character.
This week’s additions include 2 new playsets and a 15ft straight track, the later a great cost effective add onto existing sets that allow for extensions and creativity in increase playtime zooming fun. The Colossal Crash Speedway is of course a dream set for racing! Over 5ft wide its designed for thrills through near misses and crashes! The levers control the action giving the multiple users the option to send cars zooming through the crash zone or propelled into the air!
At a more affordable market SRP of £24.99 the City Smashin’ Triceratops delivers lots of value including track, a truck with launcher, little city with storage for cars and of course the dangerous Dino. Playing solo or with friends the objective is to heroically knock the huge Triceratops over by launching cars from the truck ahead. Otherwise the Dino can knock the buildings over with the contents falling out! Suitable from 3years.
Construction toys are very well known for their qualities in harnessing social skills, creativity, early stages of maths (volume) and spatial awareness. The basic building blocks of the Mega Bloks range are larger than other branded block toys companies and can therefore be used from a younger age being safer and easily to grip. Well priced, the value bags of 60 available to stock in both solid colours of pink and blue as well as the classic colour bag of 150 are the best sellers. The Learning Train launched earlier this year is also a trade favourite housing 60 pieces of which some are decorated A to Z for learning the alphabet and first words, as well as rolling wheelbases to make up a train with the included special shapes.
New this week is the Shape Sorting Wagon available in both pink and red. It’s almost a 4 in 1 product, being a shape sorter, toy container, construction toy and pull along! Each includes 25 building blocks including 6 in a special shape to be matched up with the detachable shape sorter to the top of the wagon. It has a dual function easy to grip handle for pull along that also folds over the top of it when not in use and has a buildable section on it. It wagon wheels means little ones can easily transport their play station and toys to where they desire!
Another fun addition is this 2 in 1 ride on! SRP £34.99, it’s a ride on with curved seat that also scoops up building blocks in its path – finally a toy that will have them keen to tidy up! The included 25 colourful construction blocks can be played with separately and also placed onto the crocodile’s building zones. Unisex in colour a great addition to the nursery and playgroups.
