TMNT Toy Review: Remote Control Skateboarding Mikey

As the mom of two boys, I have had plenty of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle stuff in my house over time. From movies to bedding to every toy imaginable, this brand has certainly been a favorite with my kids.

The toy, movie and TV show empire featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have longstanding places in the hearts of children as some of the most beloved characters of all time.

Whenever a toy comes along featuring one of the characters, it always causes plenty of excitement. This year, one landed on Walmart’s Hottest 25 Toys of 2016 list – and I’m going to give you a BIG tip on how to save a LOT of money on this one! It’s the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Remote Control Skateboarding Mikey.

This toy has at its center – Mikey, who happens to be a fan favorite. He’s larger than life, thanks to the introduction of this remote control skateboard. Mikey is always up for whatever is fun and now, children can join in and share along some of that fun by using the remote to help Mikey carry out his awesome antics.

Those who love the moves and the thrill that’s involved with skateboarding will see the same adventure in the stunts they can help Mikey perform. All it takes is the remote control and you can see Mikey pop a wheelie.

With another move using the remote, you can see him do some pretty amazing 360s or 720s. You’ll also have the power to control the skateboard so that it can demonstrate the jaw dropping 1 foot spins.

Of course, everyone knows that anyone who has ever been on a skateboard will wipeout at some point. Mikey is no exception to that rule – but thanks to the capability of this toy, he can be back upright and ready to move on to the next stunt, thanks to the remote control’s ability to put him on his feet again using the spin button.

Mikey isn’t exactly the picture of silence with his ability to toss out 20 of the catch phrases that have always delighted audiences. If your child is a fan of the series, he’ll instantly recognize the various quips Mikey says.

The toy will delight you and your child will love to watch the high flying action stunts. The remote that comes with the skateboard gives users the ability to handle Mikey for different actions.

If kids use the left button on the remote, they’ll be able to witness Mikey perform a spin. When you’re ready to see him speed off, all you have to do is use the right button. The toy isn’t intended to be used outside and doesn’t work as well on carpet as it does on a hard surface.

With the purchase, you’ll receive instructions, the Mikey figure and the skateboard. You will have to affix Mikey to the skateboard before the first use. The toy also needs five C batteries, which you will have to buy separately. The recommended age for the toy is 4 years and up.

You can save a good deal of cash buying this through Walmart instead of Amazon or elsewhere this year. Walmart secured a special promo deal that allows them to sell this RC toy for less than the recommended retail price.

I checked it out at Walmart myself, and see what I found:

So it’s a pretty big RC toy – which is awesome. But there were also two other exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys I found on sale there, so I wanted to make sure you knew about those and how to save on them.

They’re the Ragin Racer and Rhino Chopper and at Walmart, they’re under $20, while Amazon has them at almost $30 at the time of this blog post.

There are many toys that kids will be begging for this year. Be thankful you still have little ones who want RC cars because my kids are already moving on to the high ticket items that break the bank! LOL!

Tiff 😉
