And it only cost us $28.
Finn’s obsession with Spiderman has been less than fun. Mostly because people don’t understand when a four year old whispers under his breath, “reptiles must be freeeeee,” in a creepy low talker voice.
Nor do they understand being shot at with “web” upon meeting him.
Or that we’ve had complete tantrum filled meltdowns over the Spidey costume. He only wants Spiderman underwear, on a good day Hulk or Captain America or the Thing will suffice. I have to coax him into wearing one of his non-Spiderman t-shirts on a daily basis. They conveniently “need to be washed” a lot in our house.
Spidey in all of his many… so. VERY. MANY. plastic forms comes with us everywhere. Everywhere, people! Do you know what it is like to hear “spectacular, spectacular SPIDERMAN,” being sung 700 times a day?
Someone please remind me of this when I am bitching about stepping on Barbie shoes four years from now.
But Spidey, he’s sort of taken a bit of a backseat lately. Sure, there is a renewed interest in Scooby Doo thanks to Dave’s mom buying Finn several of those books, but even old episodes on Netflix and Scooby Snacks aren’t enough to pull him away from the lure of the red and blue.
What then has the gumption to pull him from the very claws of Venom, Black Cat, Spiderman, Sandman, and the Reptile?
And DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN I will not even complain that you have to pay a premium for Pixar shit because the sounds in my house are no longer filled with evil laughter and disdain at the thought of Mary Jane being Spiderman’s girlfriend ewwww.
Cars 2 is out this Friday, June 24. Along with old favorites like Lightening and Mater, there are several new characters namely Finn McMissile, a badass British intelligence agent and his hottie partner, Holly Shiftwell. Ahem.
My Finn? He is beside himself. We’ve been watching each new trailer as it comes out on the official Cars 2 site, he tells strangers about the new characters, we’ve gone and gotten the talking Finn McMissile car with the light up headlights along with Holly Shiftwell and a few old favorites that we didn’t have yet. Believe me, I didn’t think it was possible, but we apparently didn’t have Guido or Luigi or Red.
Money well spent my friends. Well spent.
He doesn’t even know about the present from his baby sister yet… all of the bad guys.
Are you going to be lining up to see Cars 2? What are the obsessions in your house lately?
