The toy line includes interactive toys which speak and climb walls, new collectable die-cast cars and buildable play-sets. The hero products included Mattel's Lightning McQueen Alive and Lego's Spy Jet Escape.

The event also included a sneak peek at the upcoming multi-platform Cars 2: The Video Game and a first look at a life-size Finn McMissile car.

“Cars 2 is our largest toy line yet with more 300 new toys and it offers something for everyone – we have cars that can be dramatically customised in wild and expressive ways, cars that transform and even cars that climb walls.”
