The fact that my house is still full of Cars toys from the first two movies, tells me Cars 3 Toys are going to be racing off the shelves. My kids got spoiled with a fun bag of Cars 3 Toys we were given during the #Cars3Event and I wanted to share them, and more with you today. Check out my Ultimate Cars 3 Toys Guide to bring Cars 3 to life during play time!

Ultimate Cars 3 Toys Guide
As soon as I walked in the door from the airport on Monday, the kids dug into my suitcase and went straight for the Crazy 8 Crashers Smash & Crash Derby Playset. I mentioned in my Cars 3 Review that I would love to see this part of the film get it’s own feature film, and playing demolition derby in the living is the next best thing. This set comes with a course, barrels, tires, 1:55 scale mud covered Lightning McQueen vehicle, and Miss Fritter so kids can bash and crash to recreate one of the thrilling competition scenes from the new Cars 3 movie.
PS: Disney Store is offering free shipping with ANY Cars purchase when you code FREESHIP through Monday!
I love watching my two boys bond over movies and toys, and that’s just what they did with this action packed Crazy 8 Crashers Smash & Crash Derby Playset. This playset is designed to also be a game, and the first player to knock Miss Fritter’s bus down wins. The arena can be reconfigured for more epic action, or do what my boys did and turn it into a one lane race track and see how is the fastest.
Miss Fritter is my favorite part of this set, especially since I’m already having trouble finding a die-cast of her in the area. If they make it I will find it eventually because I must have one! For now, this one will make me laugh and I will continue to yell “Miss Fritter Time!” while the boys are playing with this playset! You can also pick up several other Crazy 8 Crashers Cars for more fun in the arena.
While I couldn’t find a die-cast Miss Fritter, I have already acquired a Smokey die-cast. He’s one of my favorite new Cars characters and when you see the film you will know why. He also reminds me of my dad’s old trucks, just missing the wood trim running down the back.
Cruz Ramirez Die Cast Car is perfect for kid and adults who love Cars 3. I can see this sitting on many desks in addition to racing across the floor in little hands. Sleek and sharp in striking yellow, Cruz Ramirez rediscovers her racing dreams thanks to Lightning McQueen. This die cast perfectly captures the sporty styling of the Rust-eze Racing Center trainer and race technician from Cars 3. I let the kids have this one so the would leave my Smokey alone lol! Check out all the Cars 3 Die-Cast to collect your favorites.
Today on the blog are two posts from our #Cars3Event Interviews with Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington, Armie Hammer, and Cristela Alonzo. Lots of laughs as we chatted about Route 66, Scandal, and of course #Cars3! Plus a few life lessons from Alonzo as she talked about playing Cruz Ramirez! #CruzRamirez #disney #pixar #cars #toys #cristela #mcqueen #scandal
There are some great Cars 3 Quotes and Movie Moves Lightning McQueen says over 65 iconic phrases and sounds. This Cars 3 Lightning McQueen Cars reacts to motion when he goes forward, backward, left, right, and upside down. With working headlights and taillights, even I had fun trying to shoot video of all his different phrases. Keep your eyes out for Moves Cruz Ramirez as well, to recreate even more dynamic movie scenes and interactive racing.
Speaking of Cruz, this Cruz Ramirez Remote Control Vehicle is great for little and big kids! Miss Charlie has been driving her all around the house since I brought her home. Her brothers both got remote control vehicles last Christmas so she’s pretty stoked to have her own, and it’s yellow! This Cruz Remote Control vehicle goes forward, backward, and turns left or right all with a remote that is easy for small hands to hold.

Cars 3 Books
There are quite a few kids books based on movies that fill our shelves. Heck, I still have a Cars Look & Find Book from the first movie. I really love the artwork in the Disney hardcover books, especially Lead the Way. Page after page the art is amazing, and the story is one the inspires even the littlest hearts. In this story you ride along with Lightning McQueen as he revisits many of his cherished moments with the late and great Doc Hudson. Lightning has learned so many inspiring things from Doc that he would like to pass on to Cruz Ramirez-including a lesson about what it really means to win.
Another great Cars 3 Book is the Cars 3 Big Golden Book. Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage! Children ages 3 to 7 will love this beautifully illustrated hardcover Big Golden Book based on the film.

Cars 3 School Supplies
I know, I know, school just got out for the summer and I’m already talking about school supplies. I’m mentioning these Cars 3 school supplies because if your kid wants one, you’ll probably want to start keeping your eyes out now. Plus, the Cars 3 Zak Water Bottle is perfect for hydrating this summer. This stainless steel water bottle holds 15.5 ounces and is made of BPA-free stainless steel, durable enough for kids to take anywhere they want. The screw-on lid has a built-in carrying loop for easy transportation, and doesn’t leak when it’s closed, so the bottle can be tossed into your bag or Cars 3 Reusable Tote Bag for worry-free travel. When it’s not being used, the comfortable silicone spout can be covered to keep it clean. The bottle is dishwasher safe and should not be microwaved. Recommended for children ages 3 and up.
