Hot Wheels Ultimate Octo Car Wash Playset Review (Mattel)

Hot Wheels Ultimate Octo Car Wash Playset
What It Is

You've never seen a car wash like this before. The Hot Wheels Ultimate Octo Car Wash has four feet of play, including a water-activated color-change feature when used with Color Shifters cars. One car is included. The playset consists of four areas: the Tower, the Car Wash, the Loop, and the Octo. Use the tower's elevator to lift a car up and down the ramp so it takes a warm water bath at the car wash. When the color-change car goes into the warm water, it'll change colors. Then, you lift it up to the next platform so it drops down to the drying area. Slide it back and forth a few times to dry. When the car is ready, swiftly slide it forward to move to the Loop. Push the Octo's arm down to make the car spin around the loop and into the Octo's ice water tank. Move the Octo's other arm to spray icy water onto the car, making it change color yet again. Park extra cars down below so they get the icy water and color-change effect, too. Rotate the knob to race away from the octopus and into the service station at the base. Then, do it all over again. When playtime is over, the playset folds up for easy storage and portability. This can also be connected to other Hot Wheels tracks and sets, sold separately.

Is It Fun?

Hot Wheels fans will like changing the color of their car over and over again. But even when used with regular Hot Wheels cars, the play of getting a car washed by an octopus is silly and fun. This is fun on its own, but it also makes a great addition to a Hot Wheels collection.

Who It’s For

The Octo Car Wash is for Hot Wheels fans ages 4 to 8.

What To Be Aware Of

Adult assembly is required but is easy to do.

Excess water will be trapped in trays and on the base during play. Make sure to drain these. Drain, rinse, clean, and dry all items before storing.

Water play can get messy, so it's recommended that you play in an area where it's okay to get wet.

This is not for use with some Hot Wheels cars.
