Do you hate tripping over toy cars on your child’s bedroom floor? If so, Hot Wheel Wall Tracks are just what you need. These are tracks that are attached to your wall using 3M command adhesive strips. If you use the included background poster, they make for pretty cool looking wall art when they’re not being played with.
I had my husband assemble the track and he completed the job in about 10 minutes despite being half asleep at the time. He said the process was pretty self explanatory. You can watch a video tutorial on the Hot Wheels website if you need help though.
My seven-year-old son loves this toy! He says it is by far the coolest Hot Wheels track he owns. He was a little frustrated that some of his bulkier Hot Wheels wouldn’t work on the tracks the right way, but once we helped him find a selection of cars to race he had no other complaints. (They need to be sleek and lightweight race cars, not the bulky van type vehicles.)
The only downside I can see to the tracks so far is that the motor is kind of loud. We installed them in the hallway next to my office and the noise is loud enough to be distracting while I’m working. But, if necessary, you can operate the toy just fine without the motorized “turbo boost” feature.
After a quick online search, I discovered there are actually several different versions of the Hot Wheels wall tracks and that you can join the sets together to create one really large racetrack. I think my son would be thrilled with the Batman-themed set since he’s already been begging to go so the movie this summer.
