Rio 2 swoops into theaters this Friday April 11th. With the release of Rio 2, a flock of cool toys are hitting stores to showcase the bright colors and musical sounds of Brazil too. We sampled a few goodies and the kids are loving these Rio 2 Plush Toys. Check out our video review to see a peek at what’s available.
Rio 2 Plush Toys & Book Video review
The kids favorite is the talking plush musical toy of Blu we received. Other versions like Jewel, Nico and Gabi are also on sale too. $12.99 from Jakks Pacific.
Rio 2 also has a super cute collection of mini figures that include 8 of your favorite Rio 2 characters including Blu, Jewel, Nico, Pedro, Gabby, Nigel, Luiz and Charlie. These sell for $15.99 and my kids obsess over small figures and creating set ups for all their games.
If your kids are wild about Rio 2, there’s a plethora of toys, books and more available from Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products . Partnerships include more than 100 licensees worldwide including JAKKS Pacific toys, H&M, Hallmark gifts, Rovio Entertainment and Angry Birds, Deco Pak decorations and publishing partners HarperCollins Publishers, Titan Books and Cupcake Digital.
