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

Help Lightning McQueen race around incognito just like in the Disney/Pixar Cars 3 movie with the Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 Crashers Launcher Set. It comes with two die-cast character cars of a mud-covered Lightning McQueen disguised as Chester Whipplefilter and Francis Beltline, a new character from the movie. The set also includes a launcher that doubles as storage for the cars and the accessories, which include a breakaway Thunder Hollow sign, six tires, and two “flaming” barrels. You also get two bands and four band holders to help keep the cars secure when carrying the launcher/case around by the handle.

To race, place each car into a slot and push back until the launcher locks into place. (You may need to lock the launchers by hand.) Then, press the button on the back to launch both cars. You can set up the accessories to create all sorts of obstacles for the cars to maneuver around as they race.

Is It Fun?
Cars 3 fans are really going to like playing out the Thunder Hollow racing scene from the movie or creating their own races with this playset. The die-cast character cars are really well-made, and because they are slightly larger than traditional die-cast cars, we think they’ll be very easy for small hands to roll around and load into the launcher. We did find that one side of the launcher always seemed to work better than the other, but that might not matter to much to kids who will just like adding and racing both of these characters.
Who It’s For
The Disney/Pixar Cars 3 Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 Crashers Launcher Set is for ages 3 and up. Kids who like the Cars 3 movie will have fun bringing to life the racing action with this playset.
What To Be Aware Of

When we launched these cars, one side of the launcher always worked better than the other.

There are instructions located in the clear belly band wrapped around the toy, so don’t throw it away before retrieving those instructions.

This set is available exclusively at the Disney Store.

A Pit Crew Launcher Set is also available and sold separately.
