When it comes to making awesome toys to go with its movies, Disney reigns supreme. (Our playroom is proof!) So it comes as no surprise that store shelves are filled with toys featuring Dusty, El Chupacabra and the rest of the gang from Disney’s Planes. While I was in LA screening the movie this summer, I had a chance to check out a few of the toys myself, and boy are there some cool ones.
