My son LOVES this toy! It combines his love of cars with speed. His interest in his Disney/Pixar Cars had been waning but this track made him fall in love again. He loves to focus on watching the cars speed around the track and usually involves mom or dad in switching the lanes for him. When he first got it he tested all his cars to figure out which characters would fit through the launcher. If they didn't fit, they got to park in the stands to watch.
This toy has great battery life. It has been played with several times on one set of batteries. That's definitely a plus when you have a son with autism who can literally watch the cars speed around the track for what feels like eternity. We just ask that he only play when an adult is present because the launcher spins so quickly we want to make sure he stays safe. So far, this has been an amazing toy!
