Turbo Ring of Fire Review (Mattel)

What It Is

With the Turbo Ring of Fire playset, based on the movie Turbo, kids can park, race, and play with Turbo Shell Racers vehicles, based on the racing snails from the movie. This playset features a vertical loop that must be braved in order to launch through a ring of "fire". Load up the Shell Racers into the launch tube, push the trigger, and the snails are blasted through the loop toward a speedy exit with a jump through a fire ring obstacle. The Turbo Ring of Fire playset comes with one Turbo Shell Racer. Additional vehicles are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

This playset brings the racing action from the movie to life. However, the Turbo Shell Racer doesn't make it around the loop every time. It will take kids some trial and error to determine the amount of force needed to launch the snail so that it makes it around the loop and through the fire ring. Too little force and the snail won't get far. Too much force and the snail will fly off the loop.

Who It’s For

The Turbo Ring of Fire set is for Turbo fans ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required. It took us 10 minutes to put together, and the instructions were okay.

When you press the launcher, it's helpful to hold down the playset with your other hand to keep the playset from bouncing up and breaking apart.
