EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Bring one of your favorite Cars characters into the water with you with the Disney/Pixar Cars Hydro Wheels Mater. This plastic character car is just one of several Hydro Wheels cars based on characters from the Disney/Pixar Cars movies. These cars can race on land and in water. 

For land racing, push Mater back and forth on a hard, flat surface three to four times and then let go to watch him take off. For water racing, rev the car up the same way but release it in water. You'll probably want to rev it up a little more for the water racing, otherwise the car will just float and not really go anywhere.

Looking just like the character from the movie, this brown tow truck has Mater's goofy grin and a tow hook in the back. There are a few water bubbles on both of Mater's doors.

Is It Fun?
Cars fans are going to like bringing one of their favorite Cars characters into the bath or pool with them. During bath time, this will be a fun way to engage kids in some imaginative water racing play, and it might even make reluctant bathers more interested in hopping into the tub. We like the car's dual functionality, allowing kids to play with it on dry land, too. Of course, no matter where you play, you'll need more Hydro Wheels cars to have a real race, and those are sold separately. 
Who It’s For
The Disney/Pixar Cars Hydro Wheels Mater is for ages 3 and up. Kids will like bringing a favorite Cars character into the bath or pool with them for some water racing fun, engaging in lots of imaginative play.
What To Be Aware Of

We think you'll want to rev the car up a little more for the water racing, otherwise the car will just float and not really go anywhere.

Additional Hydro Wheels include Nigel Gearsley, Strip Weathers, Lightning McQueen, Ramone, Sheriff, and Raoul Caroule. Each is sold separately.
