My son is in full-blown planes, trains and automobile mode. If it has wheels, or wings, he will sit and play with it for hours. Last week my aunt, who loves to buy things off of QVC, sent my boy the Twister Trax race track. When I opened the box, I had a moment of panic because it said it contained 225 or so pieces. I immediately considered hiding the box in a dark closet for it never to be found. But I opened it and to my delight it wasn’t as bad as I thought.
The track pieces just snap together and most of them were already assembled into large chunks, so it was just a matter of snapping a few strips of track together. It came in two boxes, but in total had three motorized cars with working headlights (batteries not included so stock up on AA’s), a bridge, several tunnels and little gadgets to make “bumps” on the track. The track glows in the dark for an extra element of fun.
This toy has turned out to be a bit hit in our house. And not just with my boy. Let’s just say, I’ve taken those cars for a spin or two around the track myself.
Good deal for the price! The current price is $24.90, but check QVC’s website as it may change from time to time. Available at QVC.
*Note: be cautious as long hair can get tangled in the motorized wheels on the cars.
