Hot Wheels Ballistiks Super 6-Shooter Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Ballistiks are new Hot Wheels vehicles that can be folded up into balls. To transform the vehicles back into cars, crash the vehicles into a hard surface and watch them pop back into car form. There are 24 Ballistiks vehicles to collect (Each sold separately.) and several Ballistiks playsets that let kids launch the Ballistiks cars to transform them. With the Ballistiks Super 6-Shooter, kids can load and launch up to six Ballistiks vehicles. Make sure the cars are in ball form and load them into the shooter. Pull back on the release mechanism, let go, and the Ballistiks vehicles will shoot out and transform into cars when they land. The Ballistiks Super 6-Shooter only comes with one Ballistiks vehicle.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun new line in the Hot Wheels collection. It's easy to fold up and transform the Ballistiks cars, but the Super 6-Shooter adds some action and excitement to the play by combining a little bit of competitiveness, shooting and skill that provides an expansion of traditional vehicle play. Kids will enjoy shooting their Ballistiks cars and seeing just how far the cars can go.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Ballistiks Super 6-Shooter is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

You have to make sure you let go of the trigger or the car won't come out.

Some of the Ballistiks vehicles won't open up when you launch them. It depends on how they land. In order for the cars to open up, they must land on the side with the logo. That's easy to do when you're doing it by hand, but not as controllable when you're using the shooter.
