My boys love playing with cars and they really love racing but one things about cars and race tracks is we have a ton of them. Now someone was really smart when they designed the Microcharger Track Sets by Moose Toys because these little tracks fit together and even have three more track set that can be pieced together to create a larger and much bigger track. Although longer they are still smaller than a regular track. The microcharger cars are tiny but they really get up to speed.

OUR Thoughts: Micro chargers are super awesome. My six year old couldn’t wait to get his hands on this track and put it together. He played for about 3 hours the first time we put the track together. The little tiny cars go into a hand held launcher that when you hold the button down it chargers up the car with speed and the wheels are spinning at what can only be described as warp speed. You then set the launcher on the edge of the track and hit the release button. It speeds through the loop and slingshots back. Then you catch the car and do it over again. I really wish there was a loop on both ends because then it would just keep going until the speed runs out but you can easily solve that by putting together more tracks for more fast racing action and longer play times.
- Track is over 5 ft long
- Car races at speeds of up to 600+mph scale speed
- awesomely cool sling shot return on one side.
- 2 types of cars for these track: red chasis for stunts and a blue chasis for racing.
- recommended for children 6+ (although my 4 yr old loved it, too)
- Track pieces do need to be put together but it is easily done
- Not recommended for children under 3 yrs old
I had a really cool video to share and sadly the sd card that I recorded it on for some reason recorded everything at a really small setting and they look awful. I would of recorded another but my son hid the quick charger and launcher which held the car before he went to school and can’t remember where. (KIDS!) As you can imagine I’m not to happy with that but if it shows up before this giveaway is over I’ll certainly post a video of high def quality to share how really cool this track is. I love the concept of these tiny tracks and tiny cars racing but they pretty tiny so be aware that because they are tiny they are not recommended for children under 3 yrs old so you’ll want to make sure if you have younger children in the house that you keep these parts up.
Down side to using a separate launcher for play would be if you hid it on your little brother your not going to be able to play again until you find it or you buy another launcher and car or purchase any of the three new track sets/ By adding the other track sets kids will be able to configure their very own race tracks for gravity defying stunts and the ultimate racing experience against their opponents.
Certainly going to be added to the 2012 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR BOYS!
