Okay, I like this spiral speedway but for the price of $20 I just don't think it is a good value. My son is almost 5 and loves to race them down and see which one wins, he is an only child so usually no one to play with it with, but there is only so many times that you can do the same thing. It takes no thought what so ever and really no effort either, I mean you lift the little piece and it zooms.
I just feel this doesn't use much energy or imagination. He'll usually play with it for about 5 minutes at a time. It has no special features really. It is nicely constructed for the most part. I always wonder if the track will start to seperate where it is put together but this is quite old and no sign of it happening yet. The plastic is actually a pretty decent grade of plastic too, pretty sturdy. This is also comes in a disney cars version but does the same thing, just different cars and colors.
It is fun, but not entertaining for long enough and a bit pricey.
