Cars: MagicBandits

 Today I'll be talking about MagicBandits again, so if you read my last post about the Monsters Inc. ones, I'll just be reusing what I said there.

Today's post is something I had a lot of fun with in Disney World...they're called MagicBandits! I had no idea about these before my trip but they turned out to be a really fun surprise. They're basically just little accessories that snap into the extra holes of your magic band (seen below) to add additional pops of color and personality. At first when I saw these, I thought they were kind of a pointless way for Disney World to make extra money. I was like"these are lame, who would buy these." That thought didn't last more than 10 seconds.

The first ones I saw in the parks were The Monsters Inc. ones, which sold me on the idea of these things.  I thought it would be fun to add some of my love for Pixar to my magic band and my overall ensemble. After finding those, I was hooked and looked for more Pixar related Bandits. I then found this great Cars 3-pack featuring Lightning Mcqueen, Mater and Lightning's signature number 95 logo and found out there was a rare Incredibles 4-pack as well, which I'll be showing right here soon as well.

Since there were no Vinylmations I was looking for during this trip, these MagicBandits were a fun alternative. It's always fun for me to hunt down some kind of Pixar Disney World exclusive collectibles during the week.

Me finding the Cars MagicBandits, which were a little harder to find. This is my "little boy on Christmas morning face", as Brita calls it. : )

 You're probably wondering if these stay on well, and yes, once you pop them on, they're pretty secure. They can snag on things, however, and pop off (I had that happen once or twice, for example getting off of Rockin' Roller Coaster). For the most part though, you won't have to worry about them falling off. Getting these for young kids though may be a different story, since they could easily rip them off. I definitely wouldn't get them for kids under six or seven, but it totally depends on the kid of course. Just in case you do plan on getting these Bandits for very young kids, be aware that they can easily be snagged on something or ripped off and lost.

Anyway, that's about it with these things. They're fun and I definitely recommend decorating your magic band when you go. They have many different Disney characters, from the classics to the Muppets, to choose from! You can find them in just about every park and resort gift shop.
