My two children saw the commercials for Magic Tracks on television and were wowed by them. They bugged me for several weeks before I went out and purchased them from Walmart. You can get them online easily from Amazon by clicking this link.
So what did we think of them? Well, getting the battery into the car was a little bit difficult. It sort of felt like the car was going to fall apart when I did this. I bought two of them, one for my son and one for my daughter. Turned out that only one of the cars worked. So, we returned the defective product back to the store and got a new one (which actually did stop working again after a few weeks). It could be the roughness of a toddler and a four year old. Or, the product could just be a bit defective.
The tracks themselves were the neatest part of this toy. You have to interlock them when you’re setting it up, which isn’t hard to do. The way that they bend and move is amazing. I think perhaps someone invented the tracks first and added the car later. Once you have your track set up you set your car on the tracks. There’s a button on top of the car that gets it going. It’ll shoot off pretty fast and it whips around these awesome tracks in an amazing way, staying on the tracks the whole time. The more track length you have, the more fun it will be. So, it may be worth investing in two of these. Get two of them for less from Amazon here.
Would I buy them again, yes. Scale of one to ten? I give this product a seven (only because the cars broke and needed to be returned on several occasions).
Here’s a great video advertising Magic Tracks.
