To Infinity… with a giant parcel?

By | November 5, 2010

I C was very lucky to recently be sent a Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear to play with review.  I was a huge fan of the first two films but, sadly, haven’t got round to seeing Toy Story 3 yet.

The Buzz that we’ve been sent is exactly how I remember him.  He has the laser, which lights up and makes the *exact* same sound from the films, a retractable helmet and, of course, his wings.  He also says phrases from the film, including his famous ‘To Infinity’ line and, if you push a button on his back, he has flames that glow blue!

We’re really impressed with this toy, and I’m now wondering if I should buy C the Woody doll for Christmas, and maybe Rex… or Mr Potato Head.

Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear retails at around £40.  However, if you’d like to get your hands on one, as well as lots of other cool toys, check out between 1st and 15th November.

This Christmas, family superstore will fleetingly return to the high street to set the Guinness World Record for the largest ever pass the parcel – and is appealing for towns and cities across the UK to take part.

By visiting between 1st-15th November 2010, families can nominate their town to be visited by Woolies’ loveable snowmen, Stan and Ollie Snow – along with a giant parcel the size of a Ford Ka. The parcel will contain thousands of pounds worth of toys, including some of the most sought after gadgets, games and playthings for Christmas 2010, as well as an abundance of Christmas spirit to start the town’s festive celebrations – all of which will be given away over the course of Woolies’ World Record Breaking Pass the Parcel Christmas Adventure.

The 10 towns or cities with the best letters of nomination will win a visit from the record breaking parcel in the weeks leading up to Christmas, with the writer of each letter invited to tear one giant layer off the parcel and take away the top toys of Christmas valued at close to £500.  These will include a Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear, Pumpaloons, a Paper Jamz Shark Guitar and a V Tech KidiZoom video camera – cult toys that could sell out on the high street as the 25th of December draws near.

But it doesn’t stop there.  Small gifts will be given to the first 100 people who come along and greet Stan and Ollie as they pass through their town.  In total , over £1,000 worth of toys will be given away per visit and the lucky town that gets to peel off the last layer of the parcel will get a very special celebrity surprise!

The Woolies’ snowmen are also planning on making a surprise visit to the children’s ward at each town they visit, to deliver a selection of the most popular toys from 

So what are you waiting for?  Head over and get nominating your town!
