Award-winning wholesaler, Baby Brands Direct, have just launched some great new Hot Wheels and Mega Bloks toys from Mattel – available for retailers to buy now. Mattel is a toy brand that dominates the industry, thanks to its wide range of franchises and brands, as well as its reputation for making fun, high quality products that children love to play with. With over 50 years of manufacturing car figures, Hot Wheels is one of Mattel’s most successful brands, with approximately eight cars being sold every second! Mega Bloks is also a giant brand, as it’s recognised as the second biggest brand in the construction toys category, thanks to its child friendly blocks and variety of playsets.
This new collection brings Mega Construx toys to Baby Brands Direct – a range from Mega Bloks aimed at older children with smaller parts that can be used with other brands of construction blocks. The Mega Construx range available features toys from two major franchises; Halo and Pokemon, as well as Mattel’s classic franchise, Barbie.
Halo is a popular science fiction franchise that is comprised of a number of novels, comic books and games, focusing on a war between humans and an alien faction. With around 81 million copies of the games sold worldwide, Halo has become one of the highest grossing franchises of all time. The Halo Mega Construx toys from Mega Bloks bring the battle to life. With buildable spaceships, robots and soldiers, these fun construction playsets are perfect for older children who are fans of the games or novels. The products feature movable parts, such as the spinning turret on the Skiff ship in the Mega Construx Halo Skiff Intercept playset, that help make the experience more immersive.
Pokemon is a franchise that has spanned several generations. From humble beginnings in the 90s with the Red, Blue and Yellow games, the franchise about pocket monsters that you can train and battle now has several iterations of the original game, as well as anime series’ and various spin offs. With new games due in November this year, this is the perfect time to stock the Mega Construx Pokemon Pikachu, a constructible version of Pokemon’s most famous and recognisable character. When constructed, Pikachu stands over 4 inches tall and can be posed in different battle-ready positions thanks to its movable limbs. It features lightning detailing on its cheeks, replicating its lightning attack.
Barbie is one of Mattel’s most well known brands and has been inspiring girls to reach for their dreams for over 60 years. Over a billion Barbie dolls have been sold worldwide. For younger girls, the Mega Construx Barbie Adventure Dream Camper and Barbie Malibu House are the perfect gift for Christmas this year. These colourful playsets feature small, easy to hold versions of the most iconic doll and her friends. These playsets are perfect for both construction fun and role playing, helping to improve dexterity and social skills in children aged 5 and up.
Baby Brands Direct also have some great new cars and race tracks from Hot Wheels available. The Hot Wheels Toxic Gorilla Slam playset features a fearsome antagonistic gorilla that makes different sounds depending on how the fight is going. It also features lights that change colour, with the gorilla turning blue when he is defeated. It also includes fun push-around play features like moveable gas hoses and a tire-shop mechanism – perfect for interactive play. The Hot Wheels Massive Loop Mayhem playset includes a huge 28-inch wide loop that’s designed for multi-car play and is built for high speed fun and incredible crashes.
