Hot Wheels Criss Cross Crash Track Set Review – Sometimes it can be very difficult to find toys that are sturdy enough to survive the “torture” that can be inflicted by your young ones, and no one wants to see tears in little one’s eyes when their favorite toy is broken or damaged. That is why the Hot Wheels Criss Cross Crash Track Set is the perfect solution for parents and kids. It is a durable while remaining a very exciting toy. With 16 feet of track and various entertaining features this set will provide your children with hours crashing and flipping fun.
There is no denying that there is something very pleasurable about crashing toy cars. This set is recommended for children between the ages of five and nine who are looking for inventive ways to watch their cars speed by other cars with the inevitable risk of a giant smash taking place. The playset is easy to assemble and shouldn’t take more than 10 to 15 minutes since the set comes with detailed instructions and clear guidance. This makes it perfect to play with as soon as it arrives.
It takes up around 3 square feet of the floor so is a good size for some good fun without completely being in the way. This also makes it small enough to be used in most rooms whether you live in a house or an apartment. The crash track is actually two figure eight tracks elevated and stacked in a way to be the shape of a clover. Tracks are blue and orange so are a great neutral color for both boys and girls.
The motorized boosters along the track sends Hot Wheels speeding through each side of the clover with all of them intersecting in the middle where all the fun occurs. Welcome to the crash zone. How many criss crosses will happen before the crashing occurs? You will hear sounds of laughter and encouragement as you watch your kids with their friends cheer on individual cars. Whoever is the last man (well last car) standing wins!
Key features include the hairpin turns and motorized boosters which encourage cars to be going as fast as possible while ensuring that a collision will eventually occur. Your child will not be disappointed. For extra cars or for ones that have been knocked out of the track, there are convenient parking spaces on the edges of the crash zone to keep them out of harm’s way.
This is ideal for children who already have a Hot Wheels car collection or who have friends and family with the toy cars as well. It only comes with one car and one car won’t crash very well by itself even if the speeds might cause it to flip out – that isn’t near as fun as wrecking their buddies’ toys.
In order for the motorized boosters to work, you will need four D size batteries which are not included in the set. This is a necessary part of the toy as it keeps the speed up of the cars for maximum play time fun.
Whether this is the first track you buy or if you have a whole collection it is important to note that this can be combined with other tracks. Give your children the chance to customize long track lines and creative curves for even more entertainment. Combining with other products will extend the shelf life and interest of this product by ensuring that boredom is kept a minimum. Get ready for never ending toy car action.
