What It Is
The MEGA Bloks Hot Wheels line gives kids a new way to play with Hot Wheels. Kids can build, collect, and race Hot Wheels vehicles with the construction sets in this new toy line. The 14-piece Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Outrageous Dragster lets kids build a dragster and then use a ripcord to easily launch it into the race. This 3.5-inch car even has space for the collectible micro action figure to sit behind the wheel. To race, insert the ripcord into the back of the vehicle. Hold the vehicle with one hand, and then pull the ripcord out with the other hand. Let go of the vehicle and watch it go.
Why It’s Fun
The Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Outrageous Dragster merges construction play and car play to give kids a new way to race with Hot Wheels. However, because racing is so central to the Hot Wheels play, we wish this vehicle traveled a little faster and farther after you launch it. Still, young Hot Wheels fans will enjoy building favorite Hot Wheels vehicles and racing them in this new way.
Who It’s For
The Hot Wheels Ripcord Launcher Outrageous Dragster is for ages 5 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
It took us five minutes to put this vehicle together. The instructions were easy to follow. The car works best on a hard, flat surface.
