My 5 yr old son was so excited when he saw this in the store! And unlike some other toys, he liked it even more when it was set up for play! And finally, no fighting about having to take a bath! He not only wants to take baths, he doesn't want them to end! So far the toy seems pretty durable. There is enough going on such as multiple tracks, some traps, to keep him entertained for a while. Also, the toy floats really well.
We have another Hot Wheels bath toy that suctions on to the wall but that doesn't do as much- with that toy, 2 cars go down a ramp and fall in the water. That one was fine when he was younger, but this new one is a much better toy for his age.
Grandpa bought this as a gift, we couldn't believe the sale price! Great deal!
Note, toy is unassembled- there are only a few steps for putting it together. Only took me a few minutes. No tools needed for assembly.
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!
We purchased the Hot Wheels Mega Garage for our 3-yr-old grandson's 3rd birthday. He loves playing with the Mega Garage, which is well made. Nicholas loves cars so we thought this would be an ideal birthday gift for him.
I bought this for my Nephew for Christmas 2011. Because he put it on his Christmas Wish list for 2011 he made up. He only 6 yrs old, but he loves playing with his Hot Wheels Car and Hot Wheel Car Playsets that he has. He already has about 250 cars & about 7 Playsets. He played with this set at he freinds house an tolld he liked it and my freinds son hads one too. So I know its Durable and Fun Playset to have. It wpuld be a joyful Playset for your Son or Daughter will enjoy to play with. What! It's a Hot Wheel!!
