Decorate Your Child's Room with a New Disney Wall Friend from Uncle Milton! (Review & Giveaway)


Part of Balian's Bedroom Makeover

One of the coolest things about Balian growing up (too quickly for my liking, I might add), is watching him develop his own likes and interests. When we began redecorating his room, and turning into a true big boy bedroom, he started to have a little to say about what went on the walls, and where. We left some blank spaces, or canvases, if you will, for decor that was to come. We saved a blank space on the wall near his very favorite hideout for a special decoration we thought he would really get a kick out of.

Uncle Milton

When I learned about Wall Friends, a new interactive kids decor product from Uncle Milton, I knew it would be just the right special touch for Balian's decked out Lightning McQueen bedroom. You may recall Steph having worked with Uncle Milton last year. She reviewed some pretty cool World in My Room products from Uncle Milton with her kiddos, which you can check out, here.Founded in 1946, Uncle Milton connects kids with the coolest toys, puzzles, games and more (and they're pretty educational, too!). 


Uncle Milton's Disney Wall Friends: Lightning McQueen

Uncle Milton just came out with their new Wall Friends, which are Disney characters that mount on the wall with light and sound at the touch of a button from a remote control! We were sent the dashing Lightning McQueen Wall Friends Character from our friends at Uncle Milton, and as soon as Balian saw it, his eyes lit up and he asked if he could play with it. I tried to explain that it was a decoration, and that he actually could play with it, after we got it set up in his bedroom.

Out of the box- Lightning looks so realistic... and shiny, too!

The adorable Lightning McQueen Wall Friend is over 13" long, which is a great size, because it's large enough to be seen, but it's not so large that it takes up a ton of wall space. Lightning is controlled by a battery operated remote control, which kids can easily use, by simply pressing a button.

We installed the AA and AAA batteries in the Wall Friend, and the remote, and then headed into Balian's new race car room to test it out. There are three holes in the back of Lightning McQueen, made for easy hanging. We slipped Lightning over a couple of nails on the wall in Balian's room, in a spot where he'd be able to easily see his new friend. There is a high, low and off position you can switch the character to in the back. I selected the low position before I hung him on the wall, and then handed the remote over to Balian to try it out.

It didn't take Balian long to get the hang of the remote. It's a small size, perfect for little hands to use. There's only one button to press, and each time you press it, Lightning McQueen lights up, and says some of his favorite phrases! Some of his catch phrases get stuck in my head, and I even find myself saying, 'Ka-Chow!'

Lightning McQueen, all lit up and ready to entertain us!

I couldn't wait to hear what Lightning would have to say to us, and neither could Balian. We turned the lights out in his room, and then I told Balian to press the button on the remote to turn Lightning on. He grabbed a front row seat, and we watched as the light show began!

Is that cool, or what? Balian feels like the coolest kid in town with this hot new interactive wall decor for his big boy bedroom! Lightning is fun to play during the daytime, and after the sun has gone down. We love to have a little light show after we've read our bedtime story each night, and before we get Balian all snuggled into his bed. One of the best things about this product, is that there's no power cord. I have weird issues about power cords in baby and toddler rooms, so the fact that this is battery operated really eases my mind.
