What It Is

Fans of the Cars movies now have a new place to play with Lightning McQueen–the bathtub! Hydro Wheels Cars Bath Racers are small plastic cars, a little more than three inches long, that were designed to race in the water. The directions on the packaging say to push the car back and forth three to four times and release it in the water to watch it go. We tried this many times, and while the car did move in the water some of the time, most of the time the wheels would spin but the car just floated. We found that the more times you rev the car, the better it works in water.

Is It Fun?

Cars fans will be happy to have Lightning McQueen to play with in the bathtub. And even though it's not the intended use for it, the car does work well out of the water by pulling it back a few times and releasing it.

Who It’s For

The Hydro Wheels Cars Bath Racers Lightning McQueen is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

There are other Cars Bath Racers available including Jeff Gorvette, Max Schnell, and more.
