It amazes me that Hot Wheels keeps coming up with so many different play set ideas for kids. My son has a ton of different Hot Wheels tracks already, but he was thrilled when we had a chance to test out the new Team Hot Wheels Stunt Devils Action Arena.
My son says this is one of his favorite Hot Wheels toys because doing stunts is much more fun than racing on a regular track. He was able to assemble the set by himself and he was impressed by the car jumping through the hoop with faux flames.
We did have a little trouble with the loop stunt that works off the blue launcher, however. The car that was included only made it all the way around the loop about half the time. We actually had better luck using a different Hot Wheels car from his collection.
I love that this play set is quiet. My son’s other favorite Hot Wheels product is the Wall Tracks set, but this can be very loud at times.
If you’re not already family with the Team Hot Wheels drivers, the company has created a fun little quiz to help you figure out what your son’s Hot Wheels personality is. (My son is Team Blue all the way!)
