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

There may be a new Sonic the Hedgehog movie coming out soon, but if you're a fan of the classic Sonic video games, then you'll like the look of the Sonic the Hedgehog Pinball Track Set. It features the super speedy Sonic enclosed in a clear ball (or what Jakks Pacific is calling a Sonic Booster figure) and a pinball-style track with pull-back launcher, Shuttle Loop, and fun video game-inspired accessories. 

When you pull back on the launcher, you'll send Sonic zooming through the loop and around the curve. As Sonic goes around the corner, he'll trigger the mini corner launcher to give him a little boost as he passes through. 

What's also cool about this is that the Sonic figure can come out of the ball and can even be removed from its ball bearing base so that kids can play out different adventures with Sonic.

Is It Fun?

This will definitely be appealing to adults who remember playing Sonic when they were kids, and it will be a fun way to introduce the video game character to a new generation of kids, especially with the CGI movie heading to theaters next year. It's a very short track set, however, and we hope that additional tracks will be available for connecting to this one so that fans can feel like they're building their own Sonic video game.

Who It’s For

The Pinball Track Set is for Sonic fans ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Additional Sonic Booster figures are available in other characters and sold separately.
