Hot Wheels Track Triple Twister Review
Hot Wheels racing cars have been around for a while now – in fact Mattel have been making them since the 1960s. They’re still hugely popular.
The Triple Track Twister track set comes with one Hot Wheels car and if this is your first Hot Wheels purchase you’ll probably want to order more cars, but it’s suitable for any Hot Wheels scale 1:64 models. There may be older cars which are not compatible with some aspects of this set (e.g. the speed booster) but more recent cars should work perfectly with it.
This Hot Wheels track set is definitely a must-have for any young fan of Hot Wheels. There are loops, tight turns and trapdoors as well as the hugely popular collision course.
If your child has an access to an iPad, they will be able to race their toy cars to 5 different virtual worlds which are the Robot Battle world, Dinosaur, Farm, Shark Park and Team Hot Wheels. It has a Hot Wheels Powerport app which can be downloaded for free in the iStore and can be integrated to this set.
A couple of things to be aware of. First, the Triple Track Twister track set will require some assembly which you may need to do for kids under about age 8 (allow 20 minutes) It also requires 4 D batteries which unfortunately are not included in the package. You can order batteries here.
Second, this really isn’t suitable for children under the age of 5 for safety reasons. There is a tendency for the cars to fly off the track which could be dangerous for little ones. You should also keep in mind that it tends to be noisy!
However, this is a set that many boys will simply love. Crashing, smashing and stunting are some of their favorite things to do with toy cars and the Triple Twister track offers plenty of opportunity for that kind of play. All in all, this is definitely a must have for boys and any girls who enjoy racing cars.
