Armour up for Big Hero 6!

January 29, 2015

Before Christmas I took Roo and Tigger to the cinema and on the way out we found an advertising stand for the new Disney Big Hero 6 movie. It wasn’t until we returned to the cinema earlier this month that we were treated to a trailer for the film and immediately Tigger was asking ‘can we watch it?‘. With the film finally being released in cinemas across the UK tomorrow we will be heading to our local cinema to watch this soon.

Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6, is an epic and heartfelt action adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios that follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred.

When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion – a robot named Baymax – and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.


To celebrate Disney is offering a fun and innovative range of new toys, stationery and more. Inspired by the exciting adventure, themes and memorable characters within the film, toy and accessories are available from Disney Store as well as other high street and online retailers.

Armour up Baymax by Bandai

Tigger was kindly sent the Armour up Baymax by Bandai to get him accustomed to the main character of the Big Hero 6 movie.

Transform nurse-bot Baymax into the ultimate action hero with over 20+ pieces of clip on armour.

Armour up Baymax by Bandai

The Armour up Baymax offers your child the two characters in one with the classic Baymax and then adding his armour to see him transformed into Armour up Baymax. With Baymax’s front and back pieces able to be pulled forward and twisted round to enable classic Baymax or twisted upside down to attach his armour.

With over 20 pieces of armour to be added onto Baymax it can be quite fiddly and younger children may require help putting it on. Taking it off doesn’t seem to be a problem for little fingers however I would advise that you keep a zip-lock food bag near by to keep all the armour pieces together.

Available from the Disney Store and all other good toy retailers with a £24.99 RRP. Considering that this an interactive toy I feel it is worth the price and something that any Big Hero 6 fan will be asking for.

Big Hero 6 Waterfill Tumbler With Straw

Whenever we visit our local Disney Store I am always hoping to find a drinks cup that encourages Tigger to leave his sport cap type drink bottles behind. So when we received a Big Hero 6 Waterfill Tumbler With Straw I have to admit to thinking that it would Roo that would end up using it, however after a chat and explaining that it was a drinks cup that Baymax would use he tried his usual juice in it and has been happy to use it ever since.

You can power up at break time with this Big Hero 6 tumbler! The screw-top design features sides full of water, glitter and plastic shapes, along with bright wraparound artwork and an integrated straw.

The Big Hero 6 Waterfill Tumbler With Straw is available within Disney Stores and online for just £5.00, which given that Tigger refused to use a straw beforehand is worth every penny.

Disclosure: We received an Armour up Baymax by Bandai and a Big Hero 6 Waterfill Tumbler With Straw FOC for the purpose of review

    Oh bless. Can’t wait to take Kara to see this movie at the weekend. I might buy one of those for my nephew actually!

  • Cherished By Me February 2, 2015 at 10:35 am

    We loved the film so my son would be thrilled with anything related to the film, he loves an action figure 🙂

  • Jen aka Muminthemadhouse February 2, 2015 at 11:32 am

    I think this film is going to be HUGE. We haven’t seen it yet, but have heard so much about it. I am sure the associated stuff is going to be amazing.

  • My Family Ties February 2, 2015 at 11:44 am

    My girls both want to see this movie as it sounds so sweet, can’t wait to see it myself now!

  • Phoebe February 2, 2015 at 2:16 pm

    Looking forward to taking my little one to this too.

  • Globalmouse February 2, 2015 at 2:27 pm

    That Baymax looks great! I love things that come with pieces for them to interact with – although we have to be careful as we often lose them! The film looks great too – can’t wait to get to see it.

  • VaiChin February 2, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    This looks like a fun film. Have a feeling my boy will love it. But then, you can’t really go wrong with a Disney movie!

  • Healthier Mummy February 2, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    I saw a trailer for Big Hero 6 – thought Baymax was a fabulous hero. That sort of cup with straw has been very popular in our house too.

  • Rachel February 2, 2015 at 5:29 pm

    I wonder if this will be the new Frozen? I’m sure my boys would love it! x

  • Michelle February 2, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    I can’t wait to go and see this movie! The toy and the cup look awesome and are something my son would have loved when he was younger. x

  • Michelle February 2, 2015 at 7:06 pm

    I think my boy will love this film! xxx

  • wendy February 2, 2015 at 7:29 pm

    This film is going to be so popular. The kids talk about it everytime the trailer is on

  • Mummy of Two February 2, 2015 at 7:33 pm

    My son keeps on pestering us about going to see this film! It sounds like there is some great merchandise to accompany it too!

  • Emma February 2, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    That sounds good, I really don’t go to the cinema much with the children. It always seems so expensive.

  • Louisa February 2, 2015 at 8:20 pm

    I’m really looking forward to seeing this with the kids. It will be nice to see something that will appeal to boys and girls x

  • nessjibberjabberuk February 2, 2015 at 9:12 pm

    When I first saw the advert on TV I thought there must have been five other films I had never heard of before! I don’t think my son has seen the adverts yet but once he does I’m sure it is a film we would love to see.

  • Jess Howliston February 2, 2015 at 9:20 pm

    My little boy saw a clip for this on the weekend and has pestered me to take him to the cinema to watch it since (oh and had a meltdown over a big hero toy in tesco yesterday lol) Perhaps I will take him next week! x

  • Rachel February 2, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    I saw an advert for this today and it looks fab x

  • bluebearwood February 2, 2015 at 11:09 pm

    I am so looking forward to seeing this film

  • Sara February 3, 2015 at 12:26 am

    My boys are desperate to see this film. They think it is named after their brother [the film was released after he was born, much to my dismay]. I think they might be surprised 😉

  • Sonya Cisco February 3, 2015 at 9:59 am

    We saw the trailer for this at Christmas and it looked fab, must sort out taking the boys at the weekend!

  • ninjacat February 3, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    What cute tie in products and I think the film looks quirky/good as well

  • Monika February 4, 2015 at 2:42 pm

    I’m so looking forward to seeing this film with the kids!
    Without seeing the film the Baymax doesn’t make much sense to me, but I’m sure I’ll go “oh of course!” once we’ve seen the film. How is the toy interactive (besides putting on his armour)?

  • Nayna Kanabar ( February 4, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    The film sounds like fun, I hope you enjoy it.

  • kara February 5, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    We cannot wait to go and see this – shame its released after half term
