Mattel Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Drift Rally Spinout Track Set
PRODUCT: Mattel Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Drift Rally Spinout Track Set (www.hotwheels.co.uk)
DESCRIPTION: A complete indoor track system which attaches to the wall for use with compatible Hot Wheels vehicles. Can be used on its own or combined with other Wall Tracks sets. Set includes track pieces, 4 x mounting brackets, 8 x safe-for-walls Command Strips from 3M, 1 x vehicle and 1 x easy-hang template for set-up. Suitable for children aged 4 years upwards.
ASSEMBLY: The Hot Wheels Drift Rally Spinout Track Set comes in several pieces which need to be assembled by an adult prior to use. This should take approximately twenty minutes to assemble using the very useful accompanying hanging template. This can be taped flat to the wall (with the bottom of the template flush with the floor) using a low-adhesive tape, e.g. painter's tape or masking tape (not included). You will need approximately three feet of open wall space to set up the track system. The template helps you to line up the mounting brackets in the right place and affix to the wall using the included Command Strips. The template can then be removed and the track pieces assembled and attached to the brackets as shown. Instructions for reattaching and removing the brackets are also included.
GOOD POINTS: The Hot Wheels Wall Tracks sets from Mattel are a truly fantastic way for kids to race their Hot Wheels cars like they've never raced them before!
As the name suggests, this unique track is assembled vertically against a wall rather than on the floor, enabling a whole new perspective on play, and creating some amazing stunts, tricks, turns and speeds round the track! The sets will also appeal greatly to parents, as they take up minimal space, keep clutter (and trip hazards) off the floor, as well as creating a cool room decor.
Like all the sets, the Wall Tracks Drift Rally Spinout Track Set is wonderfully quick and simple to mount on the wall (see assembly section above), and uses a really effective colour template and special Command Strips that will not damage your paintwork. A number of track pieces of varying colours, shapes and sizes are included in the set to create a great little track system, with features including a start ramp, downhill curve, drift around platform, bump-and-go ramp and breakthrough flames. Once assembled, your child simply needs to load up their Hot Wheels cars at the top (the set includes one such vehicle), and then stand back and let the power of gravity take over!
We think this wall mounted track is a really novel play system which is perfect for those short on space, and is safe and easy to assemble with no need for drills or screwdrivers! Furthermore, this set can be used on its own, or mixed and combined with other Wall Tracks sets, such as the Wall Tracks Starter Set, to make some amazing customised track designs.
BAD POINTS: The set is not suitable for use with wallpaper, vinyl surfaces or walls with dado rails. Only one Hot Wheels vehicle is included.
