Father’s Day Weekend + LEGO Juniors Lightning McQueen Speed Launcher

This past weekend was Father’s Day. We usually do low key things at home to celebrate. This weekend Tristan and Meshach grilled almost all of our meals, watched Netflix and played with LEGO Juniors Lightning McQueen Speed Launcher set from Disney Pixar Cars 3.

Tristan was so excited when we surprised him with the 47 piece set sent to us by the friendly team at LEGO.

It’s suggested age range for the set is 4 – 7 years and although Tristan is inching closer to 4, he did not seem to have any trouble putting it together. He also has experience with “big kid” LEGOs because he plays it with his older cousin.

What’s Inside

–   A simple instruction guide

–   Lightning McQueen from Disney Pixar Cars 3

–   Easy to Build Speed Launcher with a leaderboard, launch function and a starting ramp

Lightning McQueen

Tristan is a big fan of Disney Pixar Cars. He must’ve watched it on Netflix hundreds of times. It never seems to get old for him.

In this LEGO Juniors set, Lightning McQueen is ready to race from the starting launcher!

All you need to do is place Lightning McQueen on the launcher and hit the red button. Off he’ll go! It’s very simple to do, although Tristan did ask for help a couple of times before getting the hang of it.

If you want to know the specs according to the LEGO website: Lightning McQueen measures over 1” (3cm) high, 2” (7cm) long and 1” (3cm) wide. The Speed Launcher measures over 2” (6cm) high, 4” (11cm) wide and 2” (6cm) deep.

Just the right size for tiny hands like Tristan’s to launch Lightning McQueen into the race.

Bonding Time

The boys had a great time building the Speed Launcher and Tristan has been playing with it all weekend (and helping daddy grill!)

I remember playing with LEGOs when I was a child. It’s a time honored tradition in almost every childhood and we are so glad to pass it along to Tristan.

Thank you to the team at LEGO for sending us the LEGO Juniors Lightning McQueen Speed Launcher for review. As always, opinions are our own.
