Saudi Arabia: Lightening McQueen Has Arrived!

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.

Therefore, as a Grandmother I am just tickled to see that apparently Lightening McQueen is also loved in the Kingdom by little ones there too! 

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.

My son loves lightening McQueen.. when I took him to go see it at the Toys’r’us… he started talking to it… he was like.. ‘High McQueen, I’m Souri (his name is Mansour.. but he calls him Souri.. lol)’ it was sooo adorable <3 I have not looked into any of the Arabized McQueens.. so I would be of no help.. Sorry!
