Magic Tracks Turbo is a race track set for kids that will enable you to create an eight-foot track that travels in any direction. Within each set, you'll get 160 individual track pieces, and you'll be able to snap them together in a straight line, on a curve or even in a complete circle. You can also make your track travel over furniture or other objects. Each track comes with a remote-controlled car that will emit light as it charges along.
The cost of Magic Tracks Turbo is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Magic Tracks Turbo at the discounted price of only $5.99 for a total price of $31.97.

Before you can use your remote-controlled car on one of these tracks, you'll have to design and put together a track yourself. To get started, you may want to start snapping pieces together in a straight line, but as you get more experienced, you might want to experiment with adding curved sections to your track. When it comes to the color of your pieces, you can create color blocks or alternate colors—all the track pieces will fit together equally well.
After making sure that your race car is charged (consult the included guide for more information on charging), you'll be ready to launch it down your completed track. You'll have the option of adding some or all of the included decals to your car first, but this isn't absolutely necessary. When your car's ready, place it somewhere near the start of your track and grab your remote control. This almost goes without saying, but make sure the car's wheels are firmly planted on the track with the roof of the car facing upward.
Next, while holding your remote control, press the green button on the right-hand side in order to launch your car down your track. If the standard speed isn't fast enough for you, press the yellow button beside it to make the car go even faster. As the car travels, you can also make it stop or go backward by using the red and blue buttons on the left-hand side of your control. To make it flash its lights, emit a steady amount of light or peep its horn, use the three center buttons.
When you're done playing with your track for a while, stop your car with your remote control's red button and remove it from the track with your hands. Then you can roll up your track and store it in a safe place so you won't have to completely build it again from scratch later.
In each Magic Tracks Turbo set, you'll get 160 track pieces in four colors along with your race car, decorative decals, and Fun Guide. The track pieces come in blue, green, yellow, and pink, so you'll be able to build a multicolored track that doesn't look dull. None of these track pieces are tiny, so it won't take forever to put a long track together, and they won't pose a hazard if a toddler, baby or pet happens to be near them.
Each of the deluxe race cars that come with these track sets has the ability to light up, which will make one of these sets especially fun to play with at night. As your car zips along your track, you can press the middle button in the center of your remote control to make it give off a steady stream of light. To make the car's lights flash repeatedly, just press the button above that. When the lights are on at night, it'll look as if the car is traveling even faster than usual.
When you get bored with exploring the main functions of your car as it travels along your track, you'll be able to consult your Fun Guide for more activities involving your Magic Tracks Turbo set. By looking at your guide, you may come up with new and different ways to hook your track pieces together, along with fun ways to challenge yourself on your own or with friends. If you've got a second Magic Tracks Turbo set, or a friend has an additional one, you'll be able to create a longer track than usual and launch two remote-controlled cars.
On a related note, once you decide to obtain one of these track sets, you'll be able to get one set or two. If you get the second set, the deluxe car that comes with it may be a different color, but the track pieces you'll get will be identical to those in the first set.
Kids of all ages, regardless of gender, will be able to have fun building a race track with one of these sets and launching one or more cars down it. Although you won't be able to control them with the included remote control, you'll be able to push toy cars that didn't come with one of these sets down your track on your own. The plastic track pieces are safe for children of all ages to work with, but you should keep the small decals that come with each set away from toddlers.
A Magic Tracks Turbo Set will make a great gift for almost any child on almost any special occasion. If you present the child with the gift at a party, it's likely that the guests (including adults!) will be more than willing to build a track with the child. You won't need to worry about anyone stepping on the track pieces and hurting their feet after the fun is over since you'll be able to roll up any already-built track to store for later.
The deluxe car that comes with each Magic Tracks Turbo set will be blue, red, or green, but the color you actually get will be a surprise and you will have no choice. As a result, a child may end up stuck with one or two cars in a color that they don't like. There's really no good reason why choosing the color of the Magic Tracks race car one receives isn't possible, especially given that kids can normally choose the color of the toy they want.
There's a small ledge around the left and right edges of all the track pieces in each set, which helps keep cars from falling off the track while they're zipping along quickly. However, if multiple cars are speeding along and they end up hitting each other, this small ledge may not be able to stop them from sailing off. Some plastic race track pieces are built more like pipes in order to keep the cars inside, but within each Magic Tracks Turbo set, there are no such pieces.
