Stunt Derby Racers Review (Faber-Castell)

What It Is

Stunt Derby Racers, from Creativity for Kids (a division of Faber-Castell), is an activity kit that combines the classic fun of arts and crafts with the excitement of vehicle play. Using the kit, kids can build their own stunt derby arena and customize six pull-back racers. Customize your racers by using the included decals stickers.

Flip over the kit's box to use as the base for your stunt arena. Customize the included Stunt Derby Arena sheet using the included markers. Then adhere the sheet to the base of the box using the double-sided sticky squares on the back of the paper. Fold and insert the included ramps onto the edges around the box and adhere the barriers to prevent your racers from flying out of the arena. Add the punch out barrels, boxes, and cones for arena obstacles. These accessories feature point values so as you play you can compete against friends to knock them down and earn the most points in the arena. Simply fold them back up for the next round of play. Then jump your racers through the "ring of fire" (100 points) to win.

Is It Fun?

We think this is a fun kit that offers a lot of opportunity for repeat and open-ended play once completed. We like how it invites kids to customize the arena and vehicles to make the kit their own.

Who It’s For

Stunt Derby Racers are for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

While we like how the kit gives the packaging a secondary use, adhering all the ramps and barriers to it makes it difficult to store when playtime is over without potentially damaging it.

The accessories you need to earn points don't stand up very well. We suggest using some double-sided tape to keep them upright.
