My youngest boy loves playing with his cars, so when we was sent this Magic Tracks set to review, I knew start away he would love it. I wasn’t wrong. As soon as he saw it he couldn’t wait to get started building his very own track. And the great thing about this track is that all pieces are flexible so you can build the track in any shape or form that you want!
The set comes with 220 pieces of track that come in 4 different colours along with a motorised car that lights up too and also a sheet of stickers.
As you can see in the photo below, each piece of track can be pulled apart and stuck back on to any piece you like.
Any really loved playing and experimenting with the track. First he used obits of cardboard to make humps in the track. And it was a bit of trail and error to find out what the right angle was that the car could go up. Often the cardboard pieces would fall down, so he later used some of his little Itty Bitty toys. He loved watching the car go around and over the toys and we had bets whether the car would make it over or come of the track.
Aaron also made a hamster wheel-shaped track and placed the car in the middle and it went rolling along my living room floor which he thought was pretty great.
The track is supposed to glow, but I wouldn’t really say that it does, unless you have to expose it to a lot of natural light first. But when we did try it out in the dark, I would say it actually ‘glowed’ but because the car does light up, it made the track light up and Aaron loved this. He said it was his best track ever.
I think the best thing about this track is that it is so flexible and that you can really make any shaped track you want. Other tracks are normally have solid pieces in fixed shapes and it can be tricky for little ones to make the shape that they want, but with this it is simple. I will definitely be buying some of the add ons for this, which include bridges and a police car.
