A New Batgirl Review: DC Super Friends Wheelies by Fisher Price (Confirmed: Good)
It's no secret that I'm a huge Batgirl fan and thus, I collect Batgirl stuff (check this out). Pretty much any Batgirl stuff, really. There's not as much of it out there as you may think, so it's not overwhelming, but there's not so little of it that finding it is frustrating. Of course that pretty much means that whenever I run across some new Batgirl item, I have to buy it. A couple of weeks ago I ran across this Batgirl car from Fisher Price's DC Super Friends brand. It's labeled as part of their "Wheelies" line and reminds me of an amalgam of Little People and an old school McDonald's toy. More about it after the break.....
Ok, not much to say about this: It's a small plastic car (a little shorter than 3 inches) with rolling wheels. It's a one seater and Batgirl's driving it, so is this the Batgirlmobile? It says it's for ages 1 1/2 to 5 yrs, so it's clearly designed as a toy for smaller children. It didn't come in a package of any kind; it just had a cardboard tag attached with a little plastic tie. I hope some little kid didn't slobber on this thing before I bought it, though. That'd be gross.
