off the shelf: doc hudson from cars

I absolutely love Cars! Mum + dad has been buying me diecast Cars ever since I was a little tot in hopes of completing each and every character from the film and its sequel. So far, I already have a handful of them, including Lightning McQueen, his mate, Mater, Sarge, Fillmore, Luigi + Guido, Red, Sheriff, Finn McMissile, Holly Shiftwell, + Italian racer Francesco Bernoulli.

For last Christmas, my parents got me another Cars diecast to add to my collection ~ Doc Hudson.

Here’s a short background about Doc Hudson from Wikipedia:

Doc Hudson {voiced by Paul Newman in his last non-documentary film role} is Radiator Springs’ local physician. His license plate read 51HHMD, which is a reference to his year and track number (51), model {Hudson Hornet} and profession {medical doctor}. A racer-turned-mechanic, the character has Newman’s blue eyes.

Did you know that Doc Hudson is based on the real-life Fabulous Hudson Hornet in NASCAR competition? It was introduced in 1951 and manufactured until 1954.

my 2013 christmas wish list

my favorite things, cars, toys, toy cars

christmas is right around the corner + while the grown ups, especially our parents busied themselves in preparation for that day, it will be most fun for us to make our christmas wish list as early as now, so we can tell our mums + dads, as well as our other loved ones, what exactly do we love to receive for christmas.

we brought home a catalog of a local toy store a few months back + i have been browsing it every time i find the chance since then. there are just too many cool + wonderful toys to choose from + sometimes i wish i can have everything i want in it!

my favorite things, cars, toys, toy cars

of course, i can only request for a couple of toys from my parents so i really need to choose very carefully. one of the toys at the top of my list will have to be this remote control lightning mcqueen car! it would be awesome to play with a lightning that actually runs + i bet i will have such a great time playing with it!

i would also love to have one or two new diecast cars to add to my little collection. i would really love to have fillmore + sally, hopefully we can still find some at the local toy stores. i would also love to have doc hudson + holly shiftwell! an ironman mask or a harry potter lego set will also be cool addition to my collection of toys!

mum was browsing online the other day + we saw this exciting chasin cheeky toy. he’s a purple monkey that moves + shakes. you can even play with him by tossing him bananas! i bet it would also be fun to play with him at home so i wouldn’t mind getting one of these for christmas, too! 🙂

how about you, have you thought of your christmas wishlist yet? do share some of the items on your list in a comment below 🙂
