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

The New for 2018 Hot Wheels Cobra Crush Playset from Mattel. This super fast Playset is designed for ages 4-8, and comes with a hot wheels racer, track, launcher, ramp, and the deadly cobra. The cobra features chomping jaws and tongue, and corkscrew track along it's back. The fun starts when kids load the Hot Wheels vehicle into the launcher then push to release as the car attempts to jump over the jaws of the cobra. Miss and the cobra chomps down on your car, and you'll get caught in it's jaws. Then you must send another car(sold separately) to jump onto the cobra's head and crush the cobra so the trapped car can escape. The instructions have a cool comic book design and there's a cool collector's poster included featuring more of the Hot Wheels City Universe.

Is It Fun?

The fun starts when kids load the Hot Wheels vehicle into the launcher attempting to jump over the jaws of the cobra. The challenge is fun. If you miss, and the cobra chomps down on your car, you can get caught in it's jaws. Then the second challenge of sending another car(sold separately) to jump onto the cobra's head and crush the cobra so it can trigger the release of the trapped car. This colorful and exciting playset is a great addition to any Hot Wheels collection.

Who It’s For

For ages 4 to 8 years. Fans and collectors of Hot Wheels cars and play sets will have fun with this new creaturized version of a Hot Wheels City.

What To Be Aware Of

While testing the playset, our Cobra didn't always collapse when the trigger was released by a rescue car, but when it does it's pretty cool. Some assembly is required and extra track systems and playsets can be added. Look for additional Hot Wheels City playsets sold separately.
