It’s great when you see a toy of today and can remember when the range first launched when you were a child.  We used to love playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they’ve definitely stood the test of time, having a resurgence and launching much more interesting toys than were previously available.  Can you believe there’s also a TMNT museum, sharing all the previous reincarnations!

TMNT turtles 1988

N’s only just getting interested in figure toys, mostly down to influence from tv adverts and friends who mention various characters.  He’s only caught a brief glimpse of TMNT on tv at the moment, spotted the fighting and said ‘that’s scary mummy’ and got me to turn over.  I’m thinking it’ll be a year or two before he’ll watch the show.

Last year saw the turtles appear on the big screen.  If you’ve not seen the movie, the heroes in a half shell have to save New York from the evil Shredder, aided by their trusty reporter friend April and sensei Splinter.  With modern day animation, the film certainly delivers in the action scenes, as well as the characteristic humour shown through the relationships of the gang of four.  The movie certainly features big names, including Whoopi Goldberg, Megan Fox and Johnny Knoxville.

The film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out now to own on Blu-ray and DVD from Paramount.
