Letting Life Lead
We are really drowning in train track and car tracks around here.
We received this Hot Wheels Turbine Twister as a gift last year and it has provided a lot of fun and entertainment for my then 4.5 year old daughter and 2 year old son. It took about six months for two year old to figure out the sequence to using the crank, so he relied on his sister to get it going. It is a stand alone set that cannot be connected to other tracks (if you want it to work properly), but it requires no batteries.
Ten cranks and the cars can go for quite some time; low noise level. The car you get is not the one pictured on the box, but other cars also work well on the track. It does take some trial and error to figure out the best cars which is part of the fun.
Tip 1 : This set doesn’t seem to have the “can’t over wind” technology so take care. You can’t always give it ten cranks because there are often “unused cranks” left even after a car falls off because it is going too slow. We over cranked ours once. Though it still works just fine, it just doesn’t have the same oomph it had before that happened.
Tip 2: There is an optional “jump ramp” that you can pull up or push down, but it sticks like crazy and can’t be done easily. You can’t just change it in the middle of a run, you have to make the choice before you put the cars on it.
If you like my review, would you be so kind as to “like” it on Amazon and read my other reviews?
