Top Thundercats Toys For Christmas 2011
ThunderCats are on the move, ThunderCats are loose. Feel the magic, hear the roar, ThunderCats are loose. Thunder Thunder Thunder ThunderCats.
If you are now singing along, chances are you were born in the 80s and used to watch the ThunderCats cartoon. I loved ThunderCats as a child, and had many of the figures. Now ThunderCats is back on TV, and popular with our own children. This Christmas my Son has asked for the Lion-o figure among other characters. He excitedly tells me all about the programme as if it is a new thing. I don't think he understood how i could have watched the same cartoon when i was his age ha ha.
So after ages of rummaging through boxes in the loft, he was delighted when i presented him with my old Cheetara, WileyKit and Mumm-ra figures. Instead of the usual "That's so old fashioned Mum" it was more like "That's too cool for school Mum".
Now all the ThunderCat figures and play sets that people have been bidding ridiculous amounts for on EBay, are readily available in a toy shop near you!!
"You still have the theme tune in your head don't you"???
