Hot Wheels Ballistiks Catapult Assault Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Ballistiks are super cool transforming Hot Wheels cars that transform from spheres to racecars when they hit a hard surface. Part of the fun is sending them flying and watching them transform, and kids can add more power and action to the play with the Hot Wheels Ballistiks Catapult Assault. The rubber band-powered catapult is easy to assemble and comes with an additional band in case you break the first one. One Ballistiks car is included. Load the Ballistiks car (as a sphere) into the catapult arm, pull back on the arm, and let go to send the car flying. You can load up to three cars at a time to create a rapid-fire Ballistiks launcher.

Is It Fun?

This is classic boys' bashing, crashing vehicle play that has plenty of action. It will inspire all kinds of competitive games as well.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Ballistiks Catapult Assault is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Ballistiks don't transform every time. When they're in their sphere form, the logo on one side striking the hard surface is what activates the transformation. They have to land on the logo to activate the transforming action.

For best results, use this playset on a hard floor so the cars will take off once they transform.
