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

Disney/Pixar Cars 3 film is back in toy form with the The Racetrack Talkers! These offer way more than simple car play, this time the Cars characters speak and interact with one another just like in the film. All three characters--Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez and Jackson Storm are sold separately. Lightning McQueen comes in his red race car, Cruz Ramirez is decked out in his yellow sports car and Jackson Storm with his black sports car.  

You can hear 10+ phrases and sounds and all have infrared recognition on the front window. By pressing down on the hood of each car you activate sounds and phrases and also activate the infrared recognition, which just means it's a sensor that indicates the Cars characters are in proximity. Activate another Racetrack Talker and face them toward each other for interaction. Add more Racetrack Talkers and you'll be able to unlock more phrases for them to speak with one another. One thing to note is that the Racetrack Talker must be activated and in sight of another Racetrack Talker within 10 seconds of activation. After 10 seconds, the Racetrack Talker will deactivate to preserve battery life.

Is It Fun?

The Racetrack Talkers offer more than just simple car toy play, they are truly interactive and will entertain kids for quite awhile since they'll be able to not just drive the Cars around but will want to unlock more phrases and sounds. This is also a great way to teach children to engage and follow rules on how to activate the Racetrack Talkers. They'll have fun recreating scenarios from the Cars films and creating new stories!

Who It’s For

Disney Pixar Cars Racetrack Talkers vehicle's are perfect for the little ones and fans of the Cars movies and animated series. They can easily move these cars around for some regular vehicle play, but the talkers add a magical touch. These are also made out of tough plastic, so children will be able to crash them into one another as they like to do.

What To Be Aware Of

For smaller children, the process of activating the sounds and phrases could be difficult so we encourage parent supervision. It's not hard to figure it out, but once they get the gist of it, it'll be easier for them to do on their own. 

Each car is sold separately.
