What It Is
The Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Dancing Groot from the Disney Store is a new interactive plush version of Groot that brings the character and his dance moves to life. The end scene of the first installment of Guardians of the Galaxy
earned Groot, then baby Groot, recognition as a miniature dancing king. Now a bit bigger in the new film, Groot has still got the moves. Standing at roughly 12-inches tall, this little Groot dances to his own beat--or rather the beat of a song featured in the new movie. He features two modes of play, which can be activated via the switch on the bottom of his left foot. In mode one, Groot features motion detection. As in the first film when baby Groot would stop grooving anytime Drax looked his way, this toy will automatically stop dancing as soon as it detects motion. In mode two, nothing's going to stop Groot from breaking it down. As the music plays, Groot waves his arms and sways his hips.
Is It Fun?
For fans of the film and especially Groot lovers, Dancing Groot is a toy you can't help but smile and dance along with--not to mention we are sure Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is going to pack in some great music just like the original. We also think younger kids are especially going to enjoy the fun of the motion detector feature, which taps into a bit of the cause-and-effect play as well.
Who It’s For
The Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Dancing Groot is from the Disney Store and it's for ages 3 and up. It will appeal to fans of Groot, the movies, the Marvel comics, and the funkadelic music featured in the films.
What To Be Aware Of
This toy does require three AA batteries, which are included. These batteries, however, are to power up Try Me In-Store features, so we suggest swapping them out for the best play experience.
Additional Guardians of the Galaxy toys are also available and sold separately.
