EDITOR'S REVIEW

Overall Editor's Rating

What It Is

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ninja Boost is a 1:43-scale slot racing system. It comes with six feet of track and two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vehicles featuring Leonardo and Raphael. Each vehicle has its own accelerator that plugs into the track set. Press down on the button to make the vehicles race around the track. Press the boost button to give the vehicles more speed to make it through the loops.

Is It Fun?

We were really excited about this racing set because Carrera is known for making great racing sets. However, we found this particular set frustrating and disappointing. The Turtles trikes went off the track quite a bit or didn't have enough speed. There is a learning curve, and after awhile, you can pick up on how to best send the trikes around the track. Overall, we consider this an adequate racing set. If your child is a fan of the Turtles, he'll probably have fun with this set.

Who It’s For

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Boost Slot Racing System is for Turtles fans ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

No batteries are required. The track set simply plugs into a wall outlet.

It took us 30-40 minutes to put together. The instructions were confusing. It was easy to get the pieces to fit together. However, we had a lot of problems leveling off and balancing the track. We put all the levelers exactly where the instructions told us to put them, but it didn't balance the track. We had to come up with our own custom configuration.
