The Hot Wheels Double Loop Dash Track Set was a huge hit in our home. We have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. When they opened the shipping box, they began to scream in joy just from the pictures on the box. The toy was easy to assemble, even with children hanging on my arms and trying to help.
The best part about this toy is that it features two independent tracks that are connected side by side. This allows the kids to play at the same time and race each other. You place the car in the slot then hit the release button. There are no batteries so its not noisy and requires trial and error to perfect the technique. This is not a bad thing - the kids played for hours trying to do the best tricks or to win the most races.
When assembled, the track is quite long, maybe 8-9 feet. The good news is, there are instructions on how to fold it for easy storage. There are also directions on how to elongate/change the track for one player and a difference experience. The track comes with cars, but it worked just as well with the cars we had already at home.
I wish we had saved this for a Christmas gift for our kids, but I plan on giving it to other children in our family this year. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
