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

Celebrate 25 years of Monster Jam with the new Hot Wheels Monster Jam Front-Flip Takedown. With this playset, kids can rescue the trapped Monster Jam trucks from Crush Dozer and make an exclusive Maximum Destruction Truck do a cool front flip through the air.

There are actually a few ways that you can set up and play with this playset. By simply changing the position of the ramp, you can make the truck jump at the Crush Dozer over the crushed cars, pushing out the stacked trucks inside the Crush Dozer's mouth. And then you can make the truck do a front flip spin so that it knocks over the Crush Dozer and breaks it in two. In both ways, you just slam the launcher to launch the truck. And easily reset to do it all over again.

For more play, remove the Crush Dozer and replace it with an obstacle from home, such as a paper cup and tennis ball. See if you can get the truck to knock over those obstacles. You can also reposition the captured trucks to do wild stunts over them. And any other 1:64 –scale Monster Jam trucks you already own can be stacked inside the Crush Dozer and rescued.

The playset can also be customized with team flags, sold separately. And it is compatible with launchers and track from other Hot Wheels sets, sold separately.

Is It Fun?
Kids who are fans of monster trucks and Monster Jam will really like the stunt-tastic action in this playset. There are many different ways that kids can play using just the pieces from the playset or adding in other cars and random stuff from home, which really boosts kids' creativity. Kids will like the jumping, flipping, and destruction of this playset, which is what Monster Jam is all about. This really brings to life some of the Monster Jam mayhem that kids may have seen at a Monster Jam show.
Who It’s For
The Hot Wheels Monster Jam Front-Flip Takedown playset is for ages 4 and up. It will provide fun and action for kids who like Monster Jam or just the general destruction and stunts of monster trucks.
