Being a Grandmother I have become intimately familiar with what my little grandsons like and their favorite is the character, Lightening McQueen, of CARS fame. Now to my surprise, I have learned that Lightening McQueen has arrived in the Kingdom too!
Lightening McQueen’s tour in the Kingdom began earlier this month but does continue for a few more days. Just think, kids can now go see McQueen AND even get their picture taken with him right now in Riyadh! Now if my eldest grandson knew this, he’d be demanding that Granny Bedu take him to Riyadh!
Even before he was one year old he became mesmerized with anything Lightening McQueen. He’s now 3.5 years and his love of Lightening McQueen has not diminished in the least. When I spend time with him, one of our favorite and special activities is for Granny Bedu to make up stories about Lightening and Baby McQueen.
Now I am curious for those of you who are in the Kingdom and have seen what’s available in the local Lightening McQueen market. Do any of the Lightening McQueen’s or other CARS toys have Arabic markings on them or if a talking toy, speak Arabic? I’m not only wondering how Lightening McQueen may have been marketed for the Arab consumers but if the toys are different, I’d love to acquire one for my eldest Grandson.
