Having a little boy at home means having toys that are fast, furious, and fabulous! The Fast & Furious movie series has been around for a long time (making over $3.9 billion at the worldwide box office). In fact, I remember going to the movies in 2001 to watch the very first Fast & Furious and falling in love with the characters (especially Dom Toretto and Brian O’Conner) and all the thrilling action scenes. As this is the first ever toy line for Fast & Furious, my son gets to join in on the fun. Even though he has yet to see the movies, he is able to play out scenes with the Fast & Furious™ Deluxe Scene Playset and the Fast & Furious™ Basic Stunt Cars. Over the course of eight films that have successively stoked passion in an ever-expanding audience, Fast & Furious is a global box-office blockbuster that continues to entertain audiences of all ages.
The newest chapter of the series is The Fate of the Furious which zoomed onto DVD and Blu-ray on July 11th.
My son, a typical 5 ¾ year old, adores cars of any kind and size. As a treat, we took him to Walmart to peruse the toy section, his absolute favorite aisle, of course! He was really excited to see the Fast & Furious™ Deluxe Scene Playset and quickly picked out the Frozen Missile Attack Deluxe Scene Playset and a few diecast cars (Dodge Charger Daytona 1969 and Ford Victoria 1956) to play along with it. To extend the fun, we also browsed the craft section to create a DIY On-the-Go Racetrack Clutch to race the gorgeous diecast cars (inspired by the real cars from the movie). This is a quick and easy activity that is a great way to enjoy and imagine.
The diecast cars are created to look exactly like they do in the movies. The playset gives children (and adults, too!) the ability to recreate scenes from the movie with easy-to-assemble, lifelike pieces. This really inspired me to create my DIY On-the-Go Racetrack Clutch to play with the diecast cars anytime anyplace. I always keep toys with me in my diaper bag to keep the little one entertained. This is a great little item to make and store for entertainment purposes.
DIY On-the-Go Racetrack Clutch
Step 1: Gather supplies.
- Foam board
- Felt sheets of assorted colors
- Adhesive backed velcro strips or pieces
- Hot glue gun and refill glue sticks
- Optional: stencils
- Optional: pipe cleaner
Step 2: Cut out a racetrack from black felt. Fold oval and cut out another oval for the center.
Step 3: Cut out traffic cones, road blocks, and more. You can use a stencil or freehand cut them.
Step 4: Attach adhesive backed velcro to the backs of the small felt pieces. They will then attach to felt, but you can attach the other back to various spots of the racetrack or completely skip.
Step 5: Let your little one(s) attach velcroed pieces where they see fit.
Step 6: Attach a pipe cleaner as a handle and velcro to close the foam board as a clutch. Play with the Fast & Furious™ diecast cars.
