Hot Wheels SpinShotz Starter Set Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Hot Wheels SpinShotz discs are top toys with the ability to speed, accelerate, and fly through obstacles. The SpinShotz Starter Set comes with a launcher, a launch platform, a piece of Magna Grip track, and a special edition disc. Attach the SpinShotz to the launcher and give it a few turns. (Try different numbers of turns to find the best performance.) Then place the disc and launcher through the hole on the track. Press the button on the launcher to send the SpinShotz disc flying off the track and spinning like a top. The track can be reconfigured and connected to other SpinShotz sets. There are two versions of the Starter Set, each with a different SpinShotz disc. The Starter Sets are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

The Hot Wheels SpinShotz Starter Set is a fun addition to the Hot Wheels line. Launching the SpinShotz is easy to do, and the discs spin really well. Most of the play is going to come from performing stunts and battling the SpinShotz discs, so kids will want to collect more discs and playsets in order to create different stunt and battle scenarios.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels SpinShotz Starter Set is for ages 5 and up.
