When Liam was two, he watched the Cars movie for the first time, and thus began an obsession that lasted a good two years until we finally transitioned him into Superheroes, mostly for our own sanity as by then we could ALL recite the entirety of both movies, having watched them what felt like at least a hundred times each!
Therefore, despite the insane amount of merchandise we own, we were a little reticent to introduce Jack to the Lightning McQueen phenomenon and he skipped right into Superheroes.
We revisited this decision recently though as the constant Superhero fighting is wearing us a little thin. We dusted off the old DVDs... well actually we couldn't even find them so, to add insult to injury, we had to rent them on Amazon Prime, but it has actually been quite adorable to see Liam get reacquainted with old friends while introducing them to Jack who is happily "kachowing" all over the place now.
What is truly hilarious is seeing Jack's slowly dawning realization that our house is covered with Cars stuff that he just hadn't noticed before and we had all stopped seeing. Lightning and his friends are EVERYWHERE!
The other day, I took the boys to Pratt and some of our Cars friends came with us. The last time Liam played with Lightning McQueen, Jack was a baby. Now that baby has grown into a friend to share obsessions with.
