This summer has been a busy one and our kids are just about ready for school to start back up again. Before they throw on those backpacks, though, we are going to try for one last trip and, with a little help from Disney Pixar Cars from Toys “R” Us and the Cars Daredevil App, we know that we can keep our kids occupied and happy while we are driving or need a little break from all of the action.
My kids love playing with cars. Most of all, they love giving human qualities to them. It’s not people driving to the store, it’s the car itself. That’s what makes the Cars die-cast vehicles like those from the Radiator Springs collection, including Hudson Hornet and Green Ramone (available exclusively at Toys “R” Us), so perfect for them.
One of Matthew’s favorite activities is to build his own little towns using nothing more than a stack of paper, a box of crayons, and his overactive imagination. Don’t you love the that TV in the background is off?
Even the girls are happy to get in on the action, actually playing with (instead of fighting with) their little brother for a change!
We found, though, that they could get a little bent out of shape when they couldn’t figure out how to realign their “puzzle” of hand-drawn streets. We took a little extra time and created these great printables that are more interchangeable, allowing them to easily rearrange their towns each time they play with any of their Cars vehicles from Toys “R” Us.
So what happens when we are on the road and they, obviously, can’t play with all of the papers and cars? That’s when we break out the new Cars Daredevil app. It’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch so you can just search for “Daredevil” in the App Store. Install it and you’re all ready to go!
Once you’ve got the app installed, the kids can start playing right away or they can actually upload specially selected Cars toys to play with on the phone! To play, simply choose a car from the garage, choose a track, and, when prompted, press the buttons to speed along the track and do tricks in the air. Where were these toys when we were growing up??
How do you keep your kids occupied during those final trips before school starts? Leave us a comment and let us know how much you love the app and these awesome printables.
