OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Build and rebuild some crazy car stunts with the Hot Wheels Track Builder System Construction Crash Kit. It comes with more than 40 pieces for building four different stunt tracks one at a time, or you can combine those pieces with other Hot Wheels track sets you already own to create your own cool stunts.

You get Hot Wheels orange track pieces, pivot points for turning the track pieces, blocks for building, three trick bricks for car crashes, a high-speed launcher, and a Hot Wheels car. You can even turn part of the box into a stunt accessory thanks to its punch-out pieces and eight cardboard panels.

Build a Loop 'n Tower Smash track to send the Hot Wheels car through the loop and breaking through the brick panels. Build the Tower Target set to see how high your Hot Wheels car can jump through the tower, which also uses the break-through trick bricks. The Crash Zone track features two crash zones with the trick bricks. And the Laneway Smash track is all about giving your Hot Wheels car enough speed to knock down the tower at the end of the track.

Is It Fun?

We really like the Hot Wheels Track Builder System because it is all about getting kids to use their imaginations to build some pretty interesting track sets. With the Construction Crash Kit, kids will like that everything they need, including a car, is right there, so they can start building and crashing right out of the box. Building the four stunt tracks in the instruction booklet will be a lot of fun, but once kids have mastered those, they'll definitely enjoy creating their own stunt tracks using other Hot Wheels track they already own and other items from around the house, such as paper cups and tissue boxes.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Track Builder System Construction Crash Kit is for ages 5 and up, and will be a fun way for Hot Wheels fans to add to their Hot Wheels collections. It's also great for kids who are new to Hot Wheels because the set comes with everything kids need to set up some cool stunts.

What To Be Aware Of

The instructions for building the four included stunt tracks are easy to follow.
