June is an exciting time at Farmers, with plenty of new games and toys to play with. This month our resident Toy Expert Stu has looked at the new range of DC Superhero dolls and figurines from Mattel, which focuses on ‘Girl Power’, and the latest fully interactive pet, Zoomer Kitty.
DC Superhero Girls (In-Store Only)
“Unleash your inner superhero with the new DC Superhero Girls range from Mattel, featuring your favourite females from the DC Universe including Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Batgirl and more.
The range of toys includes 12” articulated dolls as well as 6” action figures, and what’s exciting about the range is that it’s taking a traditional boys play pattern in action figures and opening it up to a whole new audience.
The line acknowledges that girls too are a part of the comic book phenomenon that we are seeing at the box office and on TV. The characters themselves represent themes that will empower girls and are in keeping with what being a 2016 girl is all about – Wonder woman is the leader, Supergirl’s key attribute is kindness and Batgirl is the Techno-wizard.
The DC Superhero Girls dolls and figures are wonderfully sculpted and have striking bright colours on all the outfits. I think this is really a fantastic new brand that girls can really get behind.”
DC Superhero Girls are suitable for ages 6+ and available from 13th June
“Zoomer Kitty is a brand new fully interactive pet from the Makers of the Zoomer Dog and Zoomer Dino.
Zoomer Kitty really is an amazing toy that has a tonne of built in features and will keep kids entertained for hours. She has 4 modes of play including Autonomous, Play, Cuddle and Pounce, so you can have a truly different experience with her every time you play.
Zoomer Kitty has sensors in her head, ears and cheeks – just the right places that a cat loves to be scratched. Zoomer Kitty loves attention and will react with purrs and even says ‘I love you’ in her kitty voice. But if you ignore her she’ll do her own thing and might even go to sleep.
In play mode you can use Kitty’s toy for her to chase and follow around. She’ll react specifically to the toy and you’ll see lifelike cat movements as she follows the ball.
Zoomer Kitty also shows a lot of emotion using her eyes, you’ll see green when she’s ready to go, purple when she’s relaxed and purring, and red when you’ve petted her a little too hard!
Zoomer Kitty is that great toy for any family who is not quite ready for a real pet, and the one hour USB charge to get her going is a lot easier than weeks of house training!”
Zoomer Kitty is suitable from ages 5+ and available from 27 June exclusively at Farmers
