Fave toys of the summer: Mattel’s Batman Dark Knight Rises range
It’s the last day of the school holidays today and we’re seeing out a brilliant break in style with a trip to the Paralympics. If I’m honest, I’m dreading El going back to school as we’ve had so much fun together this year; our best summer yet.
But go back he must. Before he does, I’m handing over to him for today’s blog. He wanted to share his most fashionable must-have toys of the summer, and being quite the Batman fan (that’s putting it mildly) he is wild for these action toys from the Mattel DC Universe range.
I suppose we’d better start thinking about Christmas (although I warn you, I’m all booked up for a beach break this year) and if you’re buying for a young man in the 5-10 age range, preferably with a soft spot for the Dark Knight Rises, these bad bwoys are the bees knees…
|I love a chunky toy and these action playthings are purdy durable – plus, anything related to The Dark Knight Rises buys you extra cool points|
|El shows off the Batpod Two in One – I’m reliably informed that “the one on top is the armour and the one at the bottom is the Bat bike”. So now you know|
|This is his fave of the three toys: The Bat and Batman. I think El has around 500 Batmen in this house. They are taking over|
|It seems like such a long time ago since we stood in the rain for the Batman premiere. The Bat toys (and that there giant poster we lugged back from Leicester Square) are a lasting reminder of a terrific, if moist, summer|
