My friend bought this for my son for his 4th birthday last year. Now my friend always buys my son the coolest prezzies - mainly because he's a big kid himself! The Hot Wheels Crashers set comes with two vehicles and two tracks that meet (or chould I say Crash!) in a small town scene in the middle. You get two Crashers cars... although the box says you only get one? I think it costs around £15-20, depending on where you buy it from. It comes in pieces that you put together. There is the main 'town', the two tracks (more like launch pads really!), and various little pieces such as road signs. There is also a little yellow box that looks like a salt bin that can be placed in the middle or side of the track. My son found it hilarious to fill the box with those tiny Millions sweets then crash the cars into it. Let's just say the end result looked like an explosion in a sweet factory!!! All pieces are easy to put together, even for little fingers and after putting it together for the first time you no longer need the instructions. They come apart easily and it doesn't take long to take it apart or put back together. Now for the crash!!!!! Not only do the cars crash, but they seem to explode in mid air! Crashers Cars have the main body and the under shell of the car with flames covering the engine, then the bodywork of the car sits on top on a spring hinge; so upon impact, the bodywork will flip up and reveal the flames which sounds simple but is really effective when the cars are thrown together at such a high speed! To let the cars off you can either press the button at the end of each track (great when there is two playing) or you can pull the large orange lever that is situated at the end of the town. The tracks are on sliders and can be placed at any angle around that side of the track so you can achieve different crashes each time. Great fun! I would highly recommend the Hot Wheels Crashers set as it is very fun, very easy to put together and very destructive!!! Perfect for boys of almost any age!
Kids launch the cars towards the center to slam, crash and hurl them into the air. Adjust the lanes for more crashing fun or play head-to-head with a friend to see who can create the most destruction. Includes two 3in Crashers vehicles.
