A few days ago Mr Maurer and Baby Huey got to enjoy a Spring Preview event held by Toys, Tots, Pets and More (TTPM). Check out all the new and upcoming Superhero based toys coming soon
ABC's The Toy Box - Aryaball
If you haven't been watching the new show The Toy Box on ABC, then what are you waiting for? Its like Shark Tank for kids toys.
We got to meet one of the inventors from the show, Babak and his son Arya. Babak is the inventor of the Aryaball. It's a all in one sports game toy. with it you can play Soccer, Football, Frisbee, Baseball, and Golf. We got to talk a little about some of the changes he has already made to the toy. The size of the football has been increased and it no longer will contain the "Baseball/Golf Ball". The frisbee also has a sturdier plastic. This will enable older kids to play with the sports toy and lower the price point. The Baseball/Golf combo will now be sold separately.
They have made it to the finals of the Toy Box Tv show, go and cheer them on! Don't forget to pre-order the winning toy.
Mattel: DC SuperHero Girls
Mattel had on display the DC Superhero girls line in both the 12 inch ($19.99) and the 6 inch ($9.99). The figures are very detailed and possible and come with accessories to go along with the figure. They are out on shelves now.
The 12 inch dolls that were on display were Katana, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Poison Ivy, and Starfire. These toys have cloth outfits and are highly articulated. Think of Marvel Legends meets Barbie. They have alternate 12 inch counterparts that are fully plastic and not as articulated.
The 6 inch toys that we got our hands on were Katana, Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Bumble Bee. These fall more in line with your standard action figure with full plastic molding and incredible articulation.

Giving Wonder Woman more than just her standard costume and expanding on her counter parts. Decent articulation with some extremely detailed accessories.
