My First Scalextric Review
I didn’t grow up with Scalextric toys but my husband did and he was very excited when the girls received their very own My First Scalextric set. They both love cars and speed so this is a fun toy for them though my youngest is a bit too young to actually control a car.
My eldest will be four years old in January so she’s a good age for playing with this Scalextric set that is aimed at younger racers from the age of 3 years and above. Its scale is 1:64.
This set is a good starter set to introduce your kids to the world of Scalextric racing and it features everything you need to make a figure-of-eight track to race on. The track is 256cm long and you can of course make an oval shaped track too if you want.
You get two rally cars and adjustable power hand-controllers, colour coded in red and yellow to match the chevrons on the circuit.
The Magnatraction technology helps to keep the cars on the track and the variable hand-controllers allow the speed of racing to be adjusted depending on skill level. You might need to slow down on the corners to avoid falling off but most of the time the cars stay on even when using the highest speed.
