Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge Kit Review

Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge Kit Review: We have not tried out Hot Wheels before so Monkey was extra keen to get started. Especially as he’s developing a love for cars at the moment. The Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge Kit is aimed at children aged 5+ and contains everything they need to release their creativity. Which is not something I would normally think of saying about a toy such as this. But the Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge Kit has a secret. It includes lego style blocks which can be used to create unique stunts and obstacles.

So what do you get in the box? There are 50 blocks, 1 slam launcher, 1 motorised stunt bridge with tracks, 1 hot wheels vehicle, 4 mini cardboard trolls and 1 giant bridge troll.

There is a reasonable amount of assembly required out with the blocks. Thankfully Hubby was on hand and helped out which is probably just as well otherwise it may have taken a lot longer than the twenty minutes it took.  The instructions are not the easiest to follow despite being pictorial. As the kit has a motorised bridge you will need two D sized batteries which are the big ones! We had to borrow a couple out of torch.

Monkey couldn’t wait to start playing with the kit he was launching the hot wheels car over the bridge before we had even finished. You need to hit the launcher quite hard to get the car to go but Monkey thought this was pretty cool. Once we set the bridge going he get even more excited by it.

Within the instruction booklet there are additional instructions at the back which show three different ways of using the blocks to make obstacles. Monkey set about making them following he step by step instructions. Some of the building was a bit fiddly and Monkey needed some help with the smaller bits. But he could do the majority of it.

This really added an extra dimension to the kit which Monkey really enjoyed and it opens up a lot of creativity. Over time I can see him creating all sorts of constructions and obstacles for this kit.

Things we love:

  • Monkey really enjoyed sending the car flying across the kitchen and raising the motorised bridge to see if he could get it to go higher
  • When assembled the kit is huge and reaches halfway across our kitchen
  • The inclusion of the blocks really helps with his creativity, problem solving and imagination
  • I really like that the packaging includes an element of fun which can be added to the kit in the form of the large troll
  • The bridge connects with other Hot Wheels kits which opens up possibilities to create even more dare devil tracks.

I would like to see more than one car included in the kit as Monkey would normally play with this sort of toy with a friend and I can imagine lots of arguments over whose turn it is. Especially with the price being £49.99. That saying any matchbox car could be used with the kit. Monkey is already planning ways to set up obstacles to hit with flying cars so I know we will have a lot of fun with this in the coming weeks. The Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge Kit is available to purchase online with Amazon.

    Ok so I’m putting my name in a Jl because I think that’s what I put on the Gleam widget and pressed OK before I realised or might have been Ji – doh.
    I love Christmas because the kids gets so excited and it brings back all the magical feelings I had as a child. Watching them open their presents is the best part. I love going to my parents house and having a lovely Christmas dinner cooked for me while spending time with my brother and his family. I can’t wait for Christmas

  4. fiona waterworth

    My children have still not decided, however every year we go and see santa on the steam trains, we did it with our children, and now her children go its great

  5. Lyndsey Cooksey

    The whole thing of christmas makes me smile when it comes to my family. The girls faces when they walk into the living room… They aren’t allowed in till we say and we get the obligatory photos lol. It’s a bonus on Christmas day as its my hubby’s birthday but this year he will see the big 40!!! Double celebrations!

  6. Amy Wright

    My daughter is hoping for a Barbie Dreamhouse and Hatchimals and my son would like Star Wars, Transformers and Power Rangers toys.

  7. Ashley Phillips

    My eldest is getting the top thing on her list – a Starlily unicorn, wouldn’t have been able to afford it but John Lewis had it on sale. Can’t wait to see her face Christmas morning

  8. Anthony Harrington

    one of our traditions is to have warm mince pies for breakfast on christmas morning, trouble is, not one of us like them, so we either make or buy the smallest ones possible, just so we can keep the tradition going!

  9. Laura Lee

    I love Christmas Eve we have a family tradition of baking and crafts throughout the day and then we go for a walk to look at all of the local lights and look out for santa (I dont ever want my boys to grow up LOL)

  10. June Lord

    My son got a drone for his birthday, but his sisters are desperate for their own ones so they really want one for Christmas. I am just looking forward to my M&S Sherry Trifle. I can’t believe they torture me by only brining it out at Christmas and then making me wait nearly a whole year!

  11. June Lord

    I love the fact that everything is so relaxed and not the usual fast pace. We get to spend time together as a family without worrying about doing the nursery and school runs, husband going to work, we even get a brake from PPI and other spam calls.

    I love the children’s excitement during the lead up to Christmas day and the fact that they seem to love all their presents. I also love the fact that I can eat whatever I want and the calories don’t matter!

  12. Kirsteen Mackay

    Christmas is my favourite time of year. We also do the new PJ’s tradition on Christmas Eve and I love that as much as the kids. My daughter is asking for a rock polisher this year as she loves collecting stones on the beach and would like to see what they look like when all polished.

  13. sarah mcvicar

    Eek can’t wait to spend time with my family. Love our xmas eve tradition all getting stuck in peeling and prepping the veg followed by a take out and film in our new pj’s x

  14. LAURA MILTON

    I love xmas eve – new cozy pjs and family board games. Also the magic of leaving Santa his treats the night before is great fun

  15. Ashleigh Allan

    I’m so excited for Christmas and all the fun things we do like elf on a shelf and the pantomime and making cookies for santa

  16. Laura Avery

    All of us together a rare treat I love it! They want a worbench and wood working tools as they have done a few workshops and have fallen in love with creating things!

  17. becki gates

    sadly my eldest two this year have realised that santa , in their words, doesnt exist. on the other hand my 4 year is so excited to put the angel on the tree (our tradition is youngest always gets to top the tree) , he knows thats his special job. he has asked santa for a bed and pushchair for his baby doll x

  18. Rhia

    I love most things about Christmas to be honest… except having to take down and put away all the decorations afterwards!
    Any excuse for mulled wine, cheesy music and tasty treats is fine by me 🙂 My youngest is getting more aware of Christmas now, so the excitement is really starting to mount!

    my lads would love to find this under the tree! My girls are after hatchimals (twins this time!!!) im just happy with flyffy slippers 😀

    This Christmas will be the first one since my partner died so it’s going to be a tough one for me and our son. My focus is going to be on him and making sure that he has a special day. We have a tradition of having a Christmas Eve box the night before and having a Christmassy DVD. On Christmas day we usually get up early and open the gifts from Father Christmas and then have our dinner and open the gifts under the tree. This year we will also be doing something to remember my partner and his father – not sure what yet.

  22. Lesley Bain

    We normally do the 12 days before, 12 after thing. But I can’t this year. I am so excited for Xmas already that I can’t wait, so we get a carpet fitted in our livingroom in the next few days then my tree is going up 🙂

  23. Lynsey Buchanan

    My daughter is 9 and wants a mobile phone which I will get but not a very expensive one as it will give me peace of mind when she is out with her friends knowing I can call and also have GPS on her butt.

  24. Lorna Peppiatt

    I love the build up to Christmas, the gift buying, Christmas music, putting up decorations but the actual day is often stressful that I don’t enjoy it as much as I should.

  25. Rachel Butterworth

    My two older nephews want Lego. My younger nephew wants Transformers. My older niece wants make-up and my younger niece probably wants chocolate pudding(she’s 7months).

  26. Kelly B

    I am so excited for Christmas! My little boy has been wearing his elf pyjamas for the past month! Our Christmas tradition has to be putting out a mince pie, carrot and some Milk for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve! Hope you have a lovely Christmas!

  27. Dean T

    Xmas tradition is Xmas eve we break out a chocolate log to eat and watch an afternoon movie, Xmas day and boxing day is all about the turkey and trifles so no room for a log!

  28. sharon stanley

    We’re off to see family Christmas day when we all come together. Although the children love the gifts they recieve they also love playing with their cousins and all the attention they get. It’s a shame that family values are not as important as they used to be for some. We like a nice balance between family values and of course fulfilling what we can afford to on their lists.

  29. Jules

    My favourite thing about Christmas is seeing all my children together as they live in various parts of the country, so we all get together at Christmas. We share Christmas Day with my Grandson who lives with my daughter and myself and we all adore him. I’m so proud of them all. If I won this prize, I know my 2 sons would love to play with the hotwheels with my Grandson ☺

  30. Kat Allinson

    This is an amazing prize! My son is hoping to find lots of vehicles under the tree, he loves cars, tractors and trains so if I wont this he would be over the moon on Christmas Day! Merry Christmas and thank you for such an amazing giveaway x

  31. Jennifer

    Our family tradition is getting new pajamas for Christmas Eve, so we go to sleep in our snazzy PJ’s and spend all Christmas day in them, it’s great eating Xmas dinner in some super comfy jarmies!x

  32. Laura Pritchard

    We’re going to try a Christmas Eve box for the first time this year for my 2 kids and nephew – pyjamas, reindeer food, hot chocolate etc

  33. Jenny Jones

    my son is hoping for a remote control car and a basket ball hoop for the garden. Our tradition is having the family over christmas eve for hot pork and stuffing sandwiches and the adults supping mulled wine while the kids play board games or nerf wars

  34. Oli Marshall

    Christmas time is my favourite time of year. I turn so ridiculously cheese; Christmas Hallmark movies come out, cutting out paper snowflakes, feeling of content (must be due to lovely atmosphere where you go) completely overwhelms me, so much so that I don’t think I raise my voice at my little ones once during the whole period :). They know, Christmas time is mummy’s favourite time of year :). MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  35. Victoria Prince

    My favourite thing about Christmas is the whole atmosphere! I just love being in town with festive music, lights and there is a “feeling” about the world that I just can’t describe but is unique to Christmas

  36. Susan B

    I find Christmas rather stressful but I really enjoy seeing people or catching up with them by phone or some other way, especially if I haven’t spoken to them all year. That is the best part for me.

  37. Rachel Butler

    My favourite thing about Christmas is decorating the house, wearing our new pjs on Xmas eve and eating our dinner in Orr Xmas jumpers! x

  38. Kayleigh Watkins

    My son doesn’t know what he wants this year, which is proving hard, my five year old daughter would love a cry baby, and my 9 month old daughter doesn’t really know what’s going on, we have broken tradition this year by putting the tree up today, we usually do it two weeks before Christmas, our other tradition is on Christmas eve, we all get our pj’s on, order a take away, watch a Christmas movie and open the chocolates and sweets, we then leave Santa’s treats out, sprinkle the lawn with reindeer feed and go to bed so santa can visit xxx

  39. Dawn Samples

    I’m looking forward to a week on Tuesday when we can go out to buy our Christmas Tree. It’s a family tradition to wait til the 12th x
