Rocket Racers are 151-piece sets that consist of race track pieces in a variety of shapes and sizes, a race car, one wireless remote control that'll move the car, decorative decals, and an instructional guide. The idea is that once you build a track by snapping the individual pieces together, you'll be able to race your car down it forward and backward, at a rapid or steady speed. All the track pieces have been designed for use on various flat surfaces, such as the floor or a piece of furniture.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Build Track

    Before you can get your race car moving down your track, you'll need to build it by snapping the various pieces within it together. You won't need to build just a straight track, which could be somewhat dull, as the pieces in the set will enable you to make turns, bridge jumps, tunnels, and crisscrosses. As alluded to above, you can build a track on top of any type of flooring, although you might choose to build one on a table or even outdoors on a flat patch of grass.

  2. Place Car on Track

    Once your track has been built, you can place your car at what you've chosen as the starting point (adding decorative decals to the car first is optional). Each car has wheels that have been designed to grip the track, so it's unlikely that your car will roll backward or forward without any action from you.

  3. Pull Remote's Trigger

    When your car is ready to go, grab your wireless remote control, which will resemble a miniature gun. Hold it a few inches from the car and pull the trigger backward (towards you), and your car should start moving down your track. To make the car go faster, quickly press the red button on the back of the remote, and to make the car travel in reverse, push the trigger forward.

  4. Stop Car

    After you've decided that you're done playing for a while, you'll need to stop your car from moving by letting go of your remote control's trigger. You can take your track apart and put it away, but if your situation allows for this, you may want to leave it set up until the next time you'd like to use it. Another option is rolling up the track into a more compact form, which may result in only the occasional connection between two pieces being broken.

Features

  • Red or Blue Car

    When you're obtaining a Rocket Racers track set, you'll be able to choose whether you'd like a red car or a blue one. Regardless of the color that you select, you'll get a package of 65 decal stickers to decorate the car's body with. You can use as many or as few of these decals as you choose.

  • Sound Effects

    As your race car travels down the track you've built, it'll make sound effects that are similar to those that real race cars make.

  • High-Grip Tires

    Every car that's included in a Rocket Racers set has high-grip tires that'll help keep your car in place when you want it to be, and also help keep it from sliding off the track. Moreover, if your car's ever hurtling along next to other cars, such as those that your friends might have, these tires may help the car stay on its own path instead of crashing into others.

  • Pieces Bend and Flex

    The vast majority of the track pieces that come in each set will be capable of bending and flexing, so you'll be able to create a unique track with multiple twists and circles. When you're done, you should end up with an attractive neon green, orange, and gray track that'll be at least somewhat challenging for a race car to conquer. Due to the flexible nature of most of the pieces, you'll also have the option of changing the shape of the track on the fly in order to give your car more of a challenge.

  • Glows in Dark

    If you turn off the lights when you're using your track at nighttime, you'll notice that it literally glows in the dark. You'll also notice the light that your car is giving off as it travels down your track. In the event that you get bored with playing with your track while it's light out, adding the element of darkness might just make it much more exciting again.

Positive Points

  • For Kids of Various Ages

    The Rocket Racers track set doesn't have many tiny pieces, so it's safe for kids of all ages to use. If toddlers are going to be playing with it, they might want to create a very simple track, while twelve-year-olds might opt to make an incredibly challenging one. The only pieces that you'll need to keep away from toddlers who still like to put things in their mouths are the decorative decals, which are the smallest things in these sets.

  • Accommodates Multiple Cars

    Only one car comes in each Rocket Racers set, but if you have friends who also own these sets, you may want to invite them over along with their cars. At least several cars will be able to travel down a Rocket Racers track in single file, and some pieces of the track will accommodate up to three cars traveling side by side. You can push ordinary toy cars down this type of track, too, if you'd like, although you won't be able to control their activity with a remote.

  • Racing Guide Included

    If you're new to the world of plastic race tracks and miniature race cars, the instructional guide that comes with each track will contain some tips that you may find useful. Once you read this guide, you may be able to build a more intricate track and come up with better tactics that'll help you beat your friends or your car's own best times.

Negative Points

  • Sounds Could Bother People

    While it's fun that each Rocket Racers car will make sounds as it drives along, these sounds might end up bothering other people in your environment. After you hear them on a regular basis, they may even end up bothering you. Unfortunately, you can't turn your car's sound off unless you remove the battery inside, which will also stop it from lighting up and being controlled by the wireless remote.

Warnings

  • Don't Let Cars Get Wet

    It's fine to build one of these tracks outdoors, but you must keep any Rocket Racers cars in your possession out of the rain. If these cars were to get wet, this could destroy the battery inside each one. This probably wouldn't happen immediately, but even small bits of exposure over time could interfere with each battery's performance and the duration of its life.
