"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" isn't far away, and Hasbro's got a fair amount of toys ready for the movie's debut. But of all the movie-themed things I saw at New York Toy Fair 2017, the newest dancing Groot could be the winner.
Groot was available as a dancing toy when the original "Guardians of the Galaxy" was in theaters, but that was a little baby Groot in a flower pot.
Groot's a little bigger now, and has grown legs. Maybe it's a toddler now. Hasbro stacked dozens of Groots into an exhibit at their press preview, all ready to dance to clips of classic rock. And dance they did.
Groot stays put while it's dancing, but these demo units look ready to wiggle forward off the shelf. Consider this your Groot warning, should you welcome a new Groot dancing figure into your life.
Little Groot is adorable, and he'll steal the show in this May's "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequel. But can I endure him dancing in my living room? My office? Shaking his rubbery toy hips every time I play some relaxing Jerry Goldsmith 80s movie soundtracks?
Slightly bigger Dancing Groot can be yours for $35 (roughly £30 or AU$45) when it arrives this March, wiggling hips and all.
