When I first saw the preview for Disney Planes the movie, there was no doubt in my mind that it would be a hit. My son loves just about everything from Disney Pixar Films (especially Cars the movie), and honestly, I love them too! I’d probably watch them all even if I didn’t have kids.
But I decided to skip this one and let my boys have their own “Plane Date” at the movies. Why? Well, since I’ve been home with the kids, it seems that Daddy just doesn’t get that much QT anymore. Our days are so busy that father/son time has been pretty hard to come by, and I can see little indications here and there that they really need it. And since we live near a small airport and see light aircraft often, planes are kind of their “thing.” So, I sent them off on their own to have some high-flying fun.
And high-flying was right! When my son came back, he was definitely flying and all he could talk about was Dusty Crophopper. And for weeks before the movie he had been asking for a remote control plane (I have no idea why.) So, I did a little looking and found that Disney Planes’ Dusty did, in fact, come in a remote control toy…and it was available in the Disney Walmart section!
