First of all, the concept of this toy is simple, racing cars down two spiral tracks. Admittedly, for a grown-up, this could get boring in a matter of moments. However, the toy is not intended for use by grown-ups; it is intended to be used by preschool-aged children. And, to that end, it gets the job done. My two younger children, ages 3 1/2 and 4 1/2, love this toy. Yes, they have tried to send their Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars zooming down the race track; some work and some don't. While we originally purchased this racetrack as a supplement to our son's evergrowing collection of Matchbox-ish cars, we are not disappointed since the toy has taken on a life of its own.
Every parent knows their child's interests; if your child loves to play with cars and race cars, then this toy is sure to please. If your child prefers Legos or Duplos to racecars, then this isn't the toy for you.
Our son loves to watch things go... and if it takes him five tries to find a Matchbox car that fits without getting stuck, he'll patiently plow through the bucket... but once he finds the one that works, his squeals of delight echo through the room.
This toy is very sturdy, well-constructed and much more compact than the only Fisher Price garage currently available. And, as for the complaints about the noise, while this toy does attempt to imitate race car sounds when you push the lever to "start" the race, the sounds only last for about 30 seconds or so. I've yet to hear the toy "speak" on its own or while left unattended, and it's certainly not loud enough to cause any disruption to a home accustomed to the sounds of small children. Overall, a great alternative for the car-loving preschool set.
