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

It’s a bonus on Christmas day as its my hubby’s birthday but this year he will see the big 40!!! Double celebrations!

    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!

    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!

  25. June Lord
    November 6, 2017 / 5:02 am

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

  47. Ruth Harwood
    November 13, 2017 / 2:26 pm

    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.

    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!

    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
