Mattel’s Turning Mecard toys remind me of Transformers with a twist and a little Hot Wheels added to the mix. And what a combination!
As an adult, I find myself looking at toys in today’s world and saying “I wish those toys were out when I was young.” This is because they look like so much fun.
Of course, as children, many of us had fun toys, too, but with all of the technology advancements, toys in this era are simply out of this world.
One such toy is the Mattel Turning Mecard (such a weird name, isn’t it?)/ Anyway, this Turning toy is about to take America by storm. It really caught my eye because I’ve always been a major Hot Wheels fan.
So what is it about the Turning Mecard toys that makes them so special?
Again, with the reference to Transformers plus Hot Wheels ingredients. Still, first here’s some background on the company that’s responsible for making this toy.
Turning Mecard started out as a fad in South Korea where it originated. Back in 2016, Mattel actually picked up the rights to distribute the franchise throughout the world (not including Mainland China and South Korea) that includes multiple toy lines and several animation series.
The brands and products Mattel produces include Barbie, Fisher-Price, Ever After High, Monster High, Matchbox, Masters of the Universe, Board Games, American Girl, WWE, Hot Wheels.
What type of toy is the MeCard?
Surely, by now, you’re wondering what the Turning Mecard is and what it does.
What makes these vehicles so cool would be the fact that they are capable of transforming into a gigantic robot hero, or into a little car. These Mecard toysare based on the popular animated television show that aired in South Korea.
In the show, mini cars are capable of morphing into alien robots (reminiscent of Transformers).
How does Mecard work?
In order to trigger the neat morphing mechanism, all you have to do is
roll the vehicle onto the front edge of the Mecard.
with a flip, the creature hero will come to life before your eyes.
if you wish to put this robot back into a car form, all you have to do is repeat the process.
you can go against your opponents in the battle arena in head to head play.
Right now, I see kids spending endless hours as they engage in this active toy.
What do you get when you buy the Turning Mecard?

a total of 3 cards
The colors and the decorations may vary.
