Monsters University is sadly a film that has so far passed me by. This Monsters University Sulley Monster Mask caught my eye though. I was looking through the lists of Top Christmas toys for 2013 and though yes, this morning I'll take a look at this big blue furry mask.
Featuring on quite a few of the retailers lists of predicted top toys, I can personally see this mask being very popular.
I'm sure we will be getting the DVD or Blu-ie of Monsters University at some point, as we are all big fans of the first film.
Here is the trailer of Monsters University.
Monsters University Sulley Monster Mask
The Monsters University Sulley Monster Mask will cost around twenty quid and I can see it definitely appealing to not only Monsters University/Inc but also those children who love dressing up and in my experience thats almost all of them!
I have to admit I haven't played with this myself so this is just an opinion post, I have though watched loads of video reviews and read loads about the Monsters University Sulley Monster Mask.
One thing you would assume with this sort of mask is that it would say loads of phrases from the film like those Star Wars Masks you can get, but sadly it doesn't. I have to say I'm disappointed by this.
What you do get though with this mask though is a really furry mask, which moves. His mouth and eyebrows move and quite ingeniously these are controlled by your child's chin within the mask. I wonder how comfy this is to wear though.
From the reviews of the Monsters University Sulley Monster Mask I'm reading other parents who have bought this are very happy. One comment I keep reading is amazement at just how big this is so maybe not the best present for smaller children they may just topple over!
I suppose it's based on a Makka Jokka Scaring Monster so it has to fit the part!
All in all I think this mask would be a great addition to your child's dressing up box, but at twenty quid is it a bit expensive considering it doesn't talk?
On the flip side there are no batteries to buy for it, its 100% child powered and there is the added bonus of not as a parent getting irritated by the same phrases, over and over and over and over...
you know what I mean!
Will I be getting one for my children. Not now, but in the future perhaps, but the Monsters University Sulley Monster Mask is not at the top of the Toy Pile in my Honest Opinion.
