Fast and Furious Highway Havoc Review (Mattel)

Fast and Furious Highway Havoc
What It Is

Bring racing action from the Fast & Furious movies to life with the Fast & Furious Highway Havoc playset. This is based on a scene from the movie Fast & Furious 6. Just like in the movie, kids have to get their car past the military tank to escape the highway traffic crush. 

You can't play out the car action without a car, and this playset comes with a 1:55-scale 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona die-cast vehicle, just like the one driven by Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto in the movie. Set up the components of the playset, place the car in the launcher, and press down on the launcher to send the car flying past the tank and, hopefully, down the ramp on the other side. The playset also comes with barrels, boulders, and other accessories to help set the scene or set up different stunt obstacles.

Plus, there is a free Fast & Furious Filmmaker app so that kids can use their smart devices to record their own car stunts and races. The playset comes with a smart device holder, but smart devices are not included.

Is It Fun?
Kids will enjoy making the car do its death-defying leap over the crushing tank over and over again. With details inspired by the movie scene, this really helps bring the action from the movie to life. We think this set will be fun for Fast & Furious fans as well as young car enthusiasts and any kid who likes creating cool stunts with die-cast cars.
Who It’s For

The Fast & Furious Highway Havoc playset is for ages 5 and up. There are probably a lot of 5-year-olds who have never seen the Fast & Furious movies (they are rated PG-13, after all), but kids know that the movies are all about fast cars and cool stunts, and that's what young car fans get to play out with this playset.

It will also be fun for older movie fans who will like collecting the die-cast car and using the playset to build out their own movie world.

What To Be Aware Of

There is some assembly with this playset, but it is easy to do.

The Fast & Furious Filmmaker app is a free download for iOS and Android devices.
