Hot Wheels Light Speeders Flash Factory Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Flash Factory is designed to work with Hot Wheels Light Speeders cars that have color-change effects. The track set includes track pieces, a light chamber, a light brush with three stencil disks for projecting patterns onto the cars, and one Light Speeders car. Put the car in the launcher, pull back on the lever, and the car sails into the light chamber, which replicates a real-life car-painting operation. After the car has been exposed to light, release it from the chamber, and watch it fly down to the finishing platform. Kids can then use the light brush to put finishing details on the car. The color-change feature fades completely in about 10 minutes.

Is It Fun?

Kids will love the magic of the color change and the drama of the light chamber. Parents will like that the color change happens with no mess. For kids who love to get creative with their cars, this is a terrific addition to their Hot Wheels collections.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Light Speeders Flash Factory is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required.

For best results when using the light brush, place the brush into the track's arm holder to keep the brush steady.

The colors fade completely in about 10 minutes, but you can play again in less time if kids don't mind a little shadow of the former design.

Four AA batteries are required but not included.

The trackset is not for use with some Hot Wheels vehicles, according to Mattel.
