Purchased as Bath Toys/Cake Toppers
on November 27, 2011
I was looking for inexpensive Cars 2 bath toys that didn't retain water and were small, like the diecast versions. The other bath toys we have don't have wheels that roll, except for the color changing cars, so that part didn't matter to me. From a bath perspective, the entire car is a tough plastic. The decals are painted on, and not stickers that would dissolve in water. Each car is two pieces, the upper body with wheels and the flat undercarriage. I was hoping they would be one solid piece. The two pieces mean that they float for a while before filling with water and sinking below the surface. To drain the water, you can sort of squeeze the car front to back, and it flows out. We let them dry on the counter between baths. After a month of use, we haven't seen any signs of mold on the inside, but I can't say it won't ever happen. Our 2.5yr old boys absolutely love them, and play with them outside of the tub, too.
I also used them (new out of the box) as cake toppers for a Cars 2 themed birthday party. I got a premade Cars racetrack cake from the local store, asked them to leave off the "kit" cars, and put these on top. Because their wheels are part of the main body, they were super easy to clean when we were done. For our particular birthday boy, this also let us have Francesco winning the race over Lightning, another plus.
