Hot Wheels did it again, they managed to take an ordinary toy, a car, and make it fun and different all over again. The car is less than 2 inches long and about 1/2 inch wide, and you can race it all over the place. It comes with a really cool pocket size remote that doubles as charger and carrying case. It only takes 25 minutes to charge the car, so the kids don't have to wait too long. We got the Ford Mustand, and they also come in the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta.
It is suggested for kids 8 and up, but my 5 and 4 year old's absolutely love it! They can easily use the remote and race and spin the car everywhere. I think the only things that they can't do with it would be special loop spins, and tricks, but they are very happy just racing it. Check out this video of my 4 year playing with it:
The only negative things about it, is that the car is so small that it easily gets lost under furniture, and you need a very flat floor to use it.
All in all, the Hot Wheels Nitro Speeders are a lot of fun, very easy to use, and will keep your kids entertained for a while. I love the fact that the car fits inside the remote/carrying case, so it doesn't get lost. I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes one of the hot toys for Christmas.
BUY IT: Most toy retailers and online store carry them for around $27.99.
