What It Is
The Action Shifters Cars Ramone's Body Shop from Mattel is a playset that sets out to bring to life one of the main hot spots of Radiator Springs, Ramone's Body Shop. The shop features a Pitty figure with spray gun, tip-over paint cans, and a moveable heat lamp. But the fun feature of this playset is the Action Shift feature. Place a cars vehicle on the lift and push the red lever forward to make the lift spin. Then direct it toward the exit and pull back on the lever to launch it.
Is It Fun?
We think the set offers a lot of imaginative play. However because the main feature in this playset (the Action Shift) requires a vehicle that isn't included, as a stand alone purchase there is ultimately virtually no play value. You must buy a vehicle, which is sold separately, in order to get the most out of this playset.
Who It’s For
The Action Shifters Cars Ramone's Body Shop is for Cars fans ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
This playset does not come with a car, so you'll need to make a separate purchase of an Action Shifters car in order to play with this set right out of the box.
The playset can also be combined with other Cars Action Shift playsets such as Luigi's Tire Shop and the larger Flo's V8 Café Dragstrip for extended play.
The set comes unassembled. it will take about five minutes to assemble.
