Mattel sent me their Cars Micro Drifters Track set for review on my dad blog. It’s totally awesome! My toddler loves Pixar Cars so it isn’t a big surprise that he loves this toy set too. What is surprising is that my three other children love this Cars track set too. I’m pretty sure it’s because of the motorized booster that shoots the cars up the track. The Cars Micro Drifters Track set has a list price of $48.99. However, Amazon is currently selling it for $15.99. You better hurry, I’m sure Amazon will raise the price back up. You know how Amazon is with their roller coaster pricing.
The Pixar Cars track set is fairly easy to assemble. However, I found it easier to use the box as a guide than the actual instructions. The set also includes speedway stickers an cardboard cutouts.
As I mentioned previously, the Cars Micro Drifters Super Speedway Playset features a motorized speedway that shoots the cars up the track. As a result, the cars can go around the track without a pit stop. Because of the wide tracks, the vehicles drift when they race around the track (just like in the Cars 2 movie).
The speedway set only includes one vehicle (Lightning McQueen of course). You can purchase additional characters. A three pack will run you about six dollars. If you’re going to buy the track set for your kid, then I highly recommend you purchase the Cars Micro Drifters 3-pack assortment. You don’t want Lightning McQueen to race by himself, do you?
