This article was sponsored by Spin Master Games – thanks for this great game!
We are huge Disney fans in this family. So anything that has to do with Disney, we are all about it. Cars 3 just recently came to theaters – and we saw it opening weekend. It is definitely a movie that we will be picking up when it hits DVD and Blu-ray. Dare I say that it is my favorite of the Cars series? I think so! Naturally we were all thrilled when Spin Master Games sent us Cars 3 Thunder Hollow Mud Madness. We just could not wait to play it!
Thunder Hollow Mud Madness
My daughters are 4 and 6 years old and immediately wanted to open up the game and start playing when it arrived. My niece, who is 11 was visiting, so I was a little worried it might be a bit “young” for her. I was pleasantly surprised when she offered to be on one of the girls’ teams because it is a 2 player game. Within minutes all three of them were laughing and having a blast as they were racing each other around the track!
One of our favorite parts of the game is that kids get to choose if they want to roll a risky or a safe dice. This makes the game a lot of fun, and caused mu daughters to really think when playing this game. If one pulled far enough ahead of the other one, they would start to use the safe dice. It was very smart of them! My niece was here for a whole week after this game arrived and they played it daily! I really enjoyed watching them all have fun together. This is a game we are sure to play over and over in our house! A great game for any Cars 3 fan – or even a fan of board and family games in general!
Piston Cup Showdown
We were so excited when Spin Master Games sent us Cars 3 Piston Cup Showdown too! This game looked like a ton of fun and we were thinking about picking it up ourselves – and then it showed up at our door! I just knew this was a game that my daughters would love. Not only because they are huge Cars and Disney fans, but because they love games – especially ones that pit them against each other.
In this game, you stop when it turns red and you hear “Red light!” Don’t pump the gas when the light is red or you must move your car back. Reach the end first and win! Listen to the announcer and pump the gas pedal when the light is green, but be sure to break when the light turns red if you hit the gas when the light is red, your car will have to move back. Race a friend in the Piston Cup with Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm. Line up at the starting line and get ready to hit the gas!
The thing I love about this game is that it actually helps with my daughters’ listening skills. Parents, you know what I am talking about. I can’t stand when they don’t have their listening ears on. Since playing this game though, I honestly feel like they are more aware of their surroundings and listen more.
About Cars 3
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!
