Hot Wheels SpinShotz Big Air Target Takedown Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Hot Wheels SpinShotz discs are top toys with the ability to speed, accelerate, and fly through obstacles. The Big Air Target Takedown set showcases this unique action. Attach the special-edition SpinShotz disc onto 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 to send the disc speeding around the high-tech Magna Grip track and through the power booster. Watch the disc shoot up the jump ramp and fly at the scoring target. Kids score points for knocking down the bullseye targets.

The reconfigurable, modular-designed Magna Grip track lets kids build out their set and customize the action. The Big Air Target Takedown connects to other SpinShotz sets (sold separately) so kids can add more track, a jump, or a target to mix up the stunts and challenges. Additional SpinShotz discs are sold separately. The discs are stackable, so kids can get up to four stacked discs spinning.

Big Air Target Takedown comes with one launcher, one launch platform, one power booster, one bullseye target, three pieces of track, and one special-edition disc.

Is It Fun?

Launching the SpinShotz is easy to do, and the disc spins really well. It might take some practice in order to launch the SpinShotz disc to hit the target. It really depends on how many times you wind the disc on the launcher. Too few turns and the disc won't get very far. Too many turns and the disc might fly right past the target. You might also want to try adjusting the distance between the track and the target. Figuring all of this out, however, is part of the fun and play.

Who It’s For

The Spin Shotz Big Air Target Takedown is for ages 5 and up.
