PRODUCT: Mattel Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower Track Set ( )Mattel Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower

DESCRIPTION: A complete indoor interchangeable track system which attaches to the wall, for use with compatible Hot Wheels vehicles to create multiple stunts, tricks and turns, with motorised elevator and obstacles. Includes multiple track pieces, 4 x mounting brackets, 8 x safe-for-walls Command Strips from 3M, and 1 x hanging colour poster template for easy set-up. Includes 1 x Hot Wheels vehicle. Requires 2 x D batteries (not included). Suitable for children aged 5 years upwards.

ASSEMBLY: The Wall Tracks Power Tower set comes in several pieces which need to be assembled by an adult prior to use. An instructions leaflet is included which gives a step-by-step guide to setting up the track. This should take around twenty minutes to construct using the accompanying background 'poster' template. The poster can be taped flat to the wall (with the top of the poster aligned with your child's height) using a low-adhesive tape. You will need approximately 120cm x 60cm (4" x 2") of open wall space to set up the track system. The poster helps you to line up the mounting brackets in the right place (through designated notches in the poster) and affix to the wall using the included Command Strips. The assembled track pieces can then be attached to the brackets - one of the track pieces is motorised and requires batteries to be inserted prior to assembly. Instructions for reattaching and removing the brackets are also included.

GOOD POINTS: The Hot Wheels Power Tower is the latest addition to the wonderful Wall Tracks collection...a brilliant range of innovative and Mattel Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower Track Setexciting sets which enable kids to race their favourite cars on their very own wall-mounted tracks! Unlike the traditional track sets which take up and clutter valuable floor space, these unique tracks are assembled vertically against a wall, providing a novel play perspective and offering some great action-packed high speed stunts, tricks and turns around the track.

This particular track set is, like the other sets, very quick and easy to mount on the wall (see assembly section above), and uses special Command Strips that are designed to minimise damage to paintwork. In addition, to help you set up the track system, a brilliantly detailed good-sized colour poster serves as a hanging template and provides a fun action backdrop to race cars against, with specially located precut notches through which the brackets are fed to attach the track pieces to.

In addition to a die cast Hot Wheels car to get your child started, the set includes a good number of tracks pieces of varying shapes, sizes and bright colours to enable children to have great fun building a complete track system which offers multiple twists, jumps and some 'scary' obstacles that boys in particular will love.

Such features include several movable barriers which can be used to halt or divert cars onto different parts of the track, a brilliant motorised spiral-designed lift which takes the cars back up to the top of the tower, a 'frightening' moving saw and a fun chomping 'monster' with a trap door for unlucky cars to fall through. Note that the on/off switch is located underneath the battery compartment.

In our opinion, this is a really fun and fast-paced track set with plenty of clever features to stop cars in their tracks. Added to this, it offers a safe and unique way for children to play, takes up minimal space, provides a cool room decor, and is fully compatible with other Wall Tracks sets for some great customised set-ups. 

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. Batteries are not included and must be purchased separately.

PRICE: Approx. £39.99
