We received the Jump Track set to review which retails at £24.99 and is suitable for children aged 6+.
The set includes the track which is very quick and easy to assemble using the instructions provided, a hand held charger, 2 quick charge micro cars and a trading card. The track pieces are inter-connectable with the other sets available so that you can create your own huge course with loops and jumps and there are 36 micro cars to collect for racing fun.
|"The newest, most revolutionary racing set, the only vehicle brand to possess the ability to race at the ultimate speed, in the most micro scale with the most minimal effort."|
The cars are powered by Microcharge technology using the hand held charger supplied and just 5 seconds of charge allows them to race for 30 seconds. With a scale speed of 600mph these are seriously fast for little cars!
It was a shame that only one charger was supplied with the set so you can't race at the same time but it was easy enough to charge and release one vehicle and then the other. You slip the car into the charger, press a button to charge and then click another button to release the vehicle directly onto the track. 2 AAA batteries are required for the charger, which aren't supplied.
Jamster loves this set and has played with it quite often since it arrived. It would make a lovely Christmas present for other motor mad kids but I would buy an additional charger to go with it for real competitive play and racing action.
