Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Speed Racer Review (MEGA Bloks)

What It Is

The MEGA Bloks Hot Wheels line gives kids a new way to play with Hot Wheels. Kids can build, collect, and race Hot Wheels vehicles with the construction sets in this new toy line. The 14-piece Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Speed Racer lets kids build a racecar and then use a ripcord to easily launch it into the race. This 3.5-inch car even has space for the collectible micro action figure to sit behind the wheel. To race, insert the ripcord into the back of the vehicle. Hold the vehicle with one hand, and then pull the ripcord out with the other hand. Let go of the vehicle and watch it go.

Is It Fun?

The Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Speed Racer merges construction play and car play to give kids a new way to race with Hot Wheels. However, because racing is so central to the Hot Wheels play, we wish this vehicle traveled a little faster and farther after you launch it. Still, young Hot Wheels fans will enjoy building favorite Hot Wheels vehicles and racing them in this new way.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Speed Racer is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

It took us four minutes to put this vehicle together. The instructions were very easy to follow. The car works best on a hard, flat surface.
