DUB Garage™ Cruises to Toy Aisles This Month
Makes Other Toys Seem Like Just Toys
Norwood, MA, October 19, 2011- DUB Magazine™, nationally recognized authority on custom car culture, and Toy State®, award-winning manufacturer and innovator of lights and sound toy vehicles, have teamed to create the new DUB Garage™ line of customized toy vehicles.
Specially designed with the young car enthusiast in mind (ages 6+), DUB Garage brings DUB® style to the next generation! Combined with Toy State's best-in-class lights and sound features and DUB's signature wide-body style, each toy is equipped with Dropstars™ or Twenty Inches Strong ™ (TIS) rims, realistic Pirelli® tire treads, Eibach® suspension kits, and Borla® exhaust sounds. These authentic design details, along with multiple play functions, keep the fun rolling all day long!
DUB Garage puts a customized spin on some of the most recognized models in the automotive industry. Turn the playroom into a showroom with unique tricked-out cars from Ford, Chevrolet, and Dodge. Kids can choose from a wide variety of play features like Blazerz' eye-catching light show, the mixing decks and realistic scratch sounds of D-Jayz, or get in the driver's seat with Control Freakz, the full-function R/C car with a light-up turbo drive mode, real car sounds, and a DUB custom-styled remote controller.
Since 2000 DUB has designed nearly 300 vehicles for “A-List” celebrities, like Shaquille O'Neal (the first to receive a DUB Garage toy), pro-skateboarder Tony Hawk, and soccer icon David Beckham. DUB operates the DUB Magazine's Custom Auto Show and Concert Tour™, drawing nearly 500,000 attendees annually, and produces its own TV show, The DUB Magazine Project, that airs on MTV2. Each episode includes a DUB Garage segment, featuring a behind-the-scenes look at DUB's celebrity vehicle projects, including Shaq's personalized Ford Mustang.
With its slick vehicle designs, authentic accessories and eye-catching paint schemes, DUB Garage also easily transitions from the playground to the collector's mantle. Highlights from DUB Garage include:
