Mickey and the Roadster Racers has toys coming in the droves and we got to look at some really realistic Fisher-Price figures in Engineer Mickey, Painter Donald, and let us not forget Mechanic Goofy who has a platform that raises up. The show has been doing great on Disney Junior with both kids and parents and these toys capture the characters perfectly. They are intended for children 4 and up due to the fact that there are some small parts.
The series takes the gang and their unique transforming vehicles on humorous high-spirited races around the globe as well as hometown capers in Hot Dog Hills.
The voice cast includes Bret Iwan as Mickey Mouse, Russi Taylor as Minnie Mouse, Bill Farmer as Goofy and Pluto, Tress MacNeille as Daisy Duck, and Daniel Ross as Donald Duck. There are many recurring characters like Jimmie Johnson as Jiminy Johnson, Danica Patrick as Danni Sue, Jeff Gordon as Gordon Gear, Jay Leno as announcer Billy Beagle, Tim Gunn as Robbie Roberts, Gordon Ramsay as Chef Oxley, and Hector Elizondo as Grandpa Beagle. Disney also noted that family member co-viewing was very strong on this show and I think that lends itself to the guest characters as well as the NASCAR type racing tie in. I have seen many of the episodes myself and find them enjoyable.
Take a look below at the three main character figures from the show and make sure to tune in to watch. I can only imagine the adventures your child can get into with the characters, dare I see maybe Engineer Mickey has to fix Lightning McQueen for some cross over adventures now that Disney Infinity is no more these all have to take place in our heads. This show is a great dual threat as you have the Disney characters and then you add one of the hottest toy commodities, cars, to the mix. Expect to see a lot of Mickey and the Roadster Racers toys in the coming months and they will make many of the kids holiday gift lists.
