Nowadays, kids are so immersed in their technology that sometimes it can be frustrating to get them to play with good old fashioned TOYS!
That’s why I love when toy makers create toys that work in both worlds.
Monster 500™ is a unique line of highly collectible, wonderfully fiendish monster characters driving small and large vehicles, plus two fabulously freaky playsets.
These are great toys for those kids who love their monsters just a bit gross and just a bit scary and a TON of fun!
We recently were able to review several of the Monster 500™ toys and my kids had a blast! It’s been awhile since they’ve both enjoyed the same toy. My daughter is starting to gravitate more towards dolls, dress up, artsy stuff and my son is definitely a Minecraft/video game boy. They BOTH loved Monster 500™!
The time: Just after the Zombie Apocalypse. The world: desolate, toxic.
It’s a world Monsters now have to themselves. No humans left to scare. No reason left to hide. No purpose, except to do what they love best – to race. It’s in their blood, no matter what color that blood happens to be. Who will finish first? Who will finish dead last?
Here is a breakdown of the toys that are part of this collection.
Monster 500™ Small Vehicles
Kids can collect each of the 10 fast and freaky Monster 500 characters in 3-inch diecast vehicles, which are available in a single or 3-pack. Every car comes with a trading card. Each trading card has a Monster 500™ Code that unlocks a monster car in the FREE Monster 500™ Racing App. No batteries required. Vehicles are available individually at Toys ‘R’ Us for $4.99 or in the 3-pack for $14.99.
Monster 500™ Large Vehicles
For even bigger action, mini daredevils will love collecting each of the 4 large Monster 500 vehicles standing 4 inches high and 5 inches long, including Zoom Zombie™, CrocPot™, Lead Foot™ and Flattop Frank™. With the touch of a button, scary-good lights and sounds are activated on each vehicle for additional fabulously freaky fun. 3 “AG13” batteries required (included). Cars are available at Toys ‘R’ Us for $14.99.
Monster 500™ Graveyard Gauntlet Track Set
Little racers will enjoy the ultra ghoulish action this spooky set has to offer. It’s a battle to the finish line for kids, as they press down on the starting skull to begin! With one included vehicle, Drac Attack™, and compatible with any small Monster 500 vehicle, daredevils can send their cars racing past the pendulum of peril and into the jaws of doom of the eye-popping, giant skull. A checkered flag will rise to signal the winner. No batteries required. Track Set is available at Toys ‘R’ Us for $19.99

Monster 500™ Toxic Terror Trap Playset
Unleash the fiendish fury! Kids and kids at heart will enjoy the twisting, toxic, monster action this ghoulish playset has to offer. With one included character, Evil Clownevil™, kids can smash through the doors of the freaky factory and topple the toxic, terrorizing monster, while avoiding being gobbled by the mutant gator all at the same time. Then, cars can be placed on the elevator before the hazmat mutant brings each vehicle up again. Compatible with all small Monster 500 vehicles. 3 “AA” batteries required (not included). Playset is available at Toys ‘R’ Us for $34.99
