What It Is
The G.I. JOE: Retaliation COBRA Wheel Blaster Bike comes with a Firefly action figure and wheel-blasting action. The four-inch action figure can be attached to the bike so it doesn't fall off during play by inserting the pegs on the bike into the holes on the figure's feet. The bike has three wheels. When all three wheels are engaged, only the back wheel will move so kids can pretend to do wheelies. But when kids push and hold down the back of the bike, then pull the bike back, the front wheel launches forward to trip up enemies. The launched wheel is replaced by a second wheel and that wheel does move forward and backward. Slide the center wheel back to put the launched wheel back on the bike.
Why It’s Fun

Who It’s For

What To Be Aware Of
The movie is rated PG-13 because of violence, so it may not be appropriate for all children even if the violence is very cartoon-like. This is always a challenge with toys based on these types of movies. Collectors and G.I. JOE fans want plenty of non-stop action and insist on at least a PG-13 rating. As always, parents need to determine what's appropriate for their family and their individual kids. For kids who love G.I. JOE and action figures, though, there's plenty of play built into this action figure even if the kids don't see the movie.
