Wow - so first off... I am not a hack or shill reviewer. We've had the Hot Wheels Criss-Cross Crash for nearly 3 years for my special needs son and it's great, but it takes up a very large footprint, is quite cumbersome to move plus the double-sided supercharger wore down batteries fast.
Not the case w/ this Figure 8 set - took us less than 10 minutes to set up, stickers and all - and was easily transportable after assembly - a Hot Wheels rarity. This set comes with not just one fast race car, but an additional FIVE MORE race cars, so you get SIX CARS total! GREAT VALUE! The play is actually better and more consistent than Criss-Cross Crash, my previous fave out of dozens of sets over the last two decades w/ my kids.
My youngest son's disability makes it hard for him to operate some sets, not the case w/ THIS set, as the cars rarely deraii. Works best on a playmat or carpet for stability. He plays for extended periods of enjoyment with this set. Highly recommend. Thanks, Target!
