I'm not sure why the company released this or why Target decided to carry this product, but it's a complete waste of money. My son has 50 cars and we needed something to store them in so when I saw this I picked it up without reading the reviews- BIG MISTAKE.
The core issue is that the slots are just too wide for most hot wheels cars and the smaller cars like Scion or Mini Coopers just completely fall to the bottom. This is product was a real let down from the moment I put one car in the slot.
this design is terrible.
when you open the case there a gate only on one side, so if you don't lay the case down on the correct side ,which try to tell a 4 year old to remember, the cars will come pouring out.
the gate that is inside has to have certain cars behind it or it won't close. it has become detached several times and is quite annoying.
the case itself has opened several times on it own spilling out over 60 cars all over the place. ok if you are at home, but not fun to clean up.
had high hopes for this product. not worth the money we spent on it.
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!!
