Madagascar and its sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, have to be the most popular movies in the last few years. Every child went crazy for the animated film that featured a bunch of exotic zoo animals try to save their friends from danger, either from the streets of a big city or from the treacherous continent of Africa.
There are numerous toys made after the main characters of the movie, all meant to bring the kids back to the fabulous world the animals live in. Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and The Penguins, are just lovely and the toys made after them are just great!
My favorite characters are definitely the Penguins! Yes, they are a group of four military disciplined and organized penguin mercenaries always looking for a way to escape from the zoo.
They have typical mercenary’s names too: Kowalski, Skipper, Private and Rico! They don’t like have anything to do with the rest of the animals in the place, but through a series on comical events, they end up saving the day! Go Skipper!
In Madagascar 2, they end up hijacking a whole tanker in order to reach the South Pole, but, after lots of thinking, they turn it around and go save their friends in Africa.
Madagascar 2 Toys
In Escape 2 Africa, there are a bunch of new characters ready to spice up the events. The most memorable is definitely King Julien the Lemur. He has the voice of Sacha Baron Cohen and he’s the supreme ruler of the lemur family the New York Zoo animals find in Africa. He’s so full of himself, but yet he’s still their boss.
All the Madagascar movie toys are great and are bound to bring a child back to the atmosphere of the movie. They are great gifts and will certainly make a kid happy!
