Hot Wheels Triple Track Twister Track Set
Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I’m a complete girlie-girl. I love makeup and manicures; shopping and pretty, sparkly things. So, as a Mama of a girl and a boy, I have to remember to do the stuff my son likes sometimes, not just the things my daughter and I enjoy doing. And that’s not always easy, since I grew up in a house full of women. (But I digress…)
For as long as I can remember, my son has been enamoured with vehicles of any kind – construction vehicles, race cars, rescue vehicles, tractors, trains… you name it. So it’s no surprise that he loves Hot Wheels.
When he recently got the chance to play with the Hot Wheels Triple Track Twister Track Set, my son was in heaven! Despite the age recommendation being 5+, he didn’t take long to figure out exactly how it worked. And, let me tell you, this toy really does have it all… from the action of multiple cars racing on the track (perfect for playing with a few friends) and amazing gravity-defying curves, to daring loop-de-loops and iPad interactivity (free app download required), this is one slick toy. I could barely tear my son away from it after almost an hour – a long time for a three-year-old. He was having so much fun and especially loved when the cars crashed while passing each other on the loops.
This is a definite winner, and a toy any child who loves cars and racing would be thrilled to receive. I will warn you, though – the extreme crash-’em-up-fun is best enjoyed in a kid-designated play area. Walls could get marked and items broken if you attempt to play this in your living room!
|Hot Wheels® Triple Track Twister Track Set from Mattel|
When I was a little girl, the best-loved (and most coveted) playdate address was that of one Barbara Millicent Roberts. It was in Malibu and, boy, was that house dreamy…
Instead of moving, Barbie decided to give the Dreamhouse a complete makeover, so the new, improved Malibu mansion is more pinktastic than ever before! It has three storeys of fabulousness, including two cool elevators – a center elevator and an elevator just for fashions and all new furniture. This glam, new Dreamhouse is so much more than I could have ever conjured up… they’ve thought of everything, from a working doorbell, light-up mirror and “flushing” toilet to someone singing in the shower! (Added bonus: all the features to keep all the accessories in place. I wouldn’t want to knock anything down as I’m, er… I mean, my daughter is playing with it. 😉
Needless to say, this is one holiday gift that is sure to put a perma-grin on any little girl’s face (and maybe her Mom’s face, too!). Since my daughter and I have a shared love of Barbie, this is just one more way we can spend fun, quality time together. I never had this dream toy as a child, so now I’m getting the chance to enjoy it with her.
Both the Hot Wheels Triple Track Twister Track Set and Barbie’s Dreamhouse are included in Walmart’s Top Toys list for 2013 and it’s no wonder – either of these toys would make amazing gifts this holiday season (they’re definitely NOT on the #unwishlist! 😉
Yep – you read it right!! I’m so thrilled to be giving away a Barbie Dreamhouse (you can get it now at Walmart.ca for $100!) courtesy of the AMAZING folks at Mattel Canada!
