Valentine's Day Gift Guide - Playmates Toys Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles T-Sprints

Playmates Toys recently launched T-Sprints, an innovative new figure and wheels play pattern that goes beyond traditional vehicle play. The new collection, for children ages 4 and up, is available first at Toys“R”Us® stores nationwide for the month of December, and will roll out to additional retailers beginning in January. The mighty, motorized micro T-Sprints can quickly take off on wild adventures--just rev, drop and go!  The highly stylized figures, which capture the personalities of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, feature a unique flywheel so kids can rev them up to be ready for sprinting action. With the figure powering the vehicle, once T-Sprints figures are revved, they can be dropped into a vehicle shell and sent racing into action!  The figures are available in single-packs for a suggested retail price of $4.99 each.

Kids can collect all of the T-Sprints figures and vehicles in the collection, including the following:
·         Lickety Split Leo with Shellraiser
·         Mad Motion Mikey with Party Van
·         Rapid Assault Raph with Stealth Bike
·         Dasher Donnie with Patrol Buggy
·         Supersonic Shredder with Shreddermobile

My Thoughts

My son is a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so he was thrilled to get to test out the brand new T-Sprints.  They are adorable action figures that can actually sprint across the floor. All you have to do to get them revved up to give them a little push. You don't have to pull them back like similar toys. Pushing them forward will get them going.

The T-Sprints work best on a hard service. Once they get going, they can fly across the whole room. They work great alone or inside of their vehicles, and the different pieces can be mixed and matched. Each one is very detailed and really captures the personality of each turtle.

My son had an awesome time playing with this action figures. They are very well made, super cute, and best of all, they are extremely affordable. At only $4.99 a piece, they are the perfect alternative to candy this Valentine's day.  If you want to plan even further ahead, they are also a wonderful basket stuffer for Easter.  No matter what the occasion, kids who are fans of the turtles are going to love these newest additions.

To grab a set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles T-Sprints for yourself, head over to Toy R Us!



I love the TMNT! Well, I did when I was younger...sadly, I remember when they first came out. I a glad that they are still enjoyed by children these days.
