If your toddler is showing an interest in race cars, then this toy is sure to delight him. This fun playset comes with one SmartPoint race car, one remote controller, and 13.5 feet of track – so there’s lots of room to play.
The best part of VTech Ultimate RC Speedway is that kids can dream up their own track design and put it together to customize their own racetrack. Along with the track, you also get Ralph along with his race car.
There’s a button on the car that, when activated, will say phrases, make sounds and share music. This is a learning car as well because it will say the letter R along with the name of the car.
The remote control is shaped like a steering wheel and it’s easy to manage, even for young children. This is because the controller has only two buttons, forward and backward.
On the racetrack, you’ll find that there are SmartPoints. These eight areas function as checkpoints. When the car arrives at a checkpoint, this is when it lights up and plays music.
This is useful in teaching toddlers about cause and effect as well as giving them a fun playtime. If you have more than one child or if you’re planning on using this toy at a party, you’ll want to keep in mind that the VTech Ultimate RC Speedway only comes with one car and one remote controller.
Additional cars and remotes can be purchased separately if you need them for more than one child. The Speedway can hold up to 3 cars on the racetrack at one time. That means three players can race against each other to find out who’s the fastest.
One thing that parents love about the Ultimate RC Speedway is that it can easily connect with other VTech racetracks. This means you and your child could use pieces from other playsets to create a unique racetrack that’s bigger than the one pictured on the box.
Kids love watching their car go around the racetrack and parents love the sturdy design of the toy. That means even if your child is a little rough with the racetrack, it won’t break or stop working.
This playset comes with five AAA batteries for demo purposes. These batteries will power the car and remote control for a little while, but if you imagine that your child will spend hours playing with this toy, then you’ll want to pick up some heavy duty re-chargeable batteries. Keep in mind that if you add an extra car, you’ll need additional batteries as well. The set is easy to assemble and the pieces snap into place.
