EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Nigel Gearsley is crossing the pond to float and race in your pond with the Disney/Pixar Cars Hydro Wheels Nigel Gearsley. This plastic character car, based on the character from the Disney/Pixar Cars movies, is just one of the Cars Hydro Wheels vehicles that races on land and in water. 

To race on land, push the car back and forth on a hard, flat surface three to four times and then let go to watch it zoom off. To race in the water, rev the car up the same way but release it in water. You might need to rev it up a little more for the water racing, otherwise the car will just float and not really go anywhere.

The Nigel Gearsley car is green with the British flag and water bubbles on its hood.

Is It Fun?
This is going to add a lot of fun to the bath or the pool, and we think Cars fans who normally don't like to take baths might change their tune when they bring this floating and racing car into the tub with them. What we also like is that kids can race this car on land for double the play. Of course, to really have a race in the water or on land, you'll need more Hydro Wheels cars, which are sold separately. 
Who It’s For
The Disney/Pixar Cars Hydro Wheels Nigel Gearsley is for ages 3 and up. This is a fun way for imaginative Cars fans to engage in some racing fun with a favorite character.
What To Be Aware Of

To do the water racing, you'll need to rev the car up a little more, otherwise it will just float and not really go anywhere.

Additional Hydro Wheels include Raoul Caroule, Strip Weathers, Lightning McQueen, Ramone, Sheriff, and Mater. Each is sold separately.
