With fun faces and the bright, colourful bodywork, these toys look appealing even if – like Charlie – you haven’t seen the movie.

Initial thoughts: Re-create the adventures of Lightning McQueen and his four-wheeled friends with this range of character cars from the Disney/Pixar movie. With racing wheels and moveable eyes, these toys will be a welcome addition to any stocking.

We liked: The fun faces and the bright, colourful bodywork. These toys looks appealing even if – like Charlie – you haven’t seen the movie. And it’d be fun to collect the full range.

They’re about the same size as the Matchbox cars I used to play with as a boy (called ‘Matchbox’ for obvious reasons) which also means they’re highly portable.

We weren’t so keen: The fact that they’re so small makes them rather fiddly for the lower end of the toddler age range. They’re suitable for children aged 3+ but aren’t as easy to handle as similar alternatives. They’re also remarkably easy to miss when you’ve walking about, and very painful to tread on!

Overview: At anything from £3.50 for the likes of Doc Hudson or Darrell CarTrip to a tenner for a character such as Mega Size Die Cast Sven Arnold Hummer, these toys make ideal stocking-fillers and their size means you could pack a fair few in the average Christmas stocking.
