      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very good toy for boys, though quite expensive.

      We bought this for our then 4 and 5 year old boys last Christmas, the youngest being car mad and already a big hot wheels fan.

      One word of advice to parents, it is an absolute pain to set up!!! I decided on Christmas eve to put it together ready for the morning, to save lots of 'how much longer?' questions in the morning!! I had 3 cigarette breaks, 2 cans of lager, and about 30 more grey hairs by the time it was done!!! The explanations on the instructions are poorly worded, the diagrams unclear, and most of the pieces look very similar.

      But, having said that, the item is brilliant. It is very well made, strong, robust, very clever in design, bright and colourful, and the boys absolutely love it!! It is probably the most played with toy in our house, certainly for the first few weeks after Christmas anyway.

      It sends the cars looping around until the user releases it, which then sends it on a track around and up and over and back into the loop. The 'mayhem' occurs when both tracks are used together, and both cars released from the loop at the same time. The track has a crossing point where both cars use the same piece for a second, so timings can cause a spectacular collision resulting in cars catapulted across the room (not that far really!!) Naturally crashes are the best thing ever to young boys, so this quickly became the sole target!!!

      The only other negative is how noisy it is. The motor which powers the loops and releases the car is very noisy and the track cannot be used without this on. Whilst annoying for parents, this isn't a problem for the kids, and it's now in their bedroom so we can hardly hear it downstairs.

      All in all this is a very clever creation and great entertainment for young, naturally destructive, boys to release some tension!!!
