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.
Gave this gift to my grandson who will be 5 next month. Not only is he unsuccessful at launching a car completely around the track but every adult has also been unsuccessful. Do NOT buy this gift. We have reassembled each piece to insure that it was put together properly and now my grandson is crying because he can't make it work.
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!
