FIRETRUCKS? Check. HELICOPTERS? Check. DINOSAUR AMBUSHERS? Triple Check! Sounds like the makings of an incredible action movie–sounds like MATCHBOX® BIG BOOTS™: a brand new line of super cool vehicles and heroes that launch into action no matter what the adventure!
The best part? Every BIG BOOTS™ vehicle seamlessly interacts with two-inch figures with amazing weighted feet that keep BIG BOOTS™ characters upright no matter what! Go ahead, try that most jumbo of jumps, that l-o-n-g-e-s-t leap, or the highest of high-flying heroics. BIG BOOTS™ toy figures will STICK THE LANDING!
And now it’s your turn to strap ‘em up and kick some booty. They want you to inspire kids with the kinds of cool stories and fantastic feats they’ll dream up themselves — for heroes that simply DO NOT FAIL…or fall! Dream up some fire-fighting, mission-accomplishing, dinosaur-wrangling tales, or re-imagine scenarios you loved as a kid. Show the story happening as it would in the mind of your four-year-old self. The action never has to end — or even pause for a re-set!
