Check out this new Turbine-Loop feature! Mattel often re-issues their track sets with different themes. We see the same parts with different designs. In this track set, we get a brand new stunt!
Instead of the typical batter-operated boosters, this one is kid-powered! OK, in this case, it is adult powered. The turbine is cranked up and it propels the racers around the track. It takes a bit of timing but you can get multiple cars on the track going at one time.
You can let the cars crash in the intersection or you can lift up a jump and the cars will pass over each other. That is some nice fore-thought on Mattel’s part. It would have been nice if the parts weren’t designed in such a way to limit them to being used with this set but as long as the set works as designed, I’m a happy camper.
Without a doubt, I can recommend this set as it works! The manual turbine means that the little ones are actually doing something rather than watch cars go around a track. As the cars slow down, they can crank it back up while they are still in motion.
$25 USD, found at Toys R Us and I think I seen it at Target too.
