Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track Set: Until we tried out the Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge Kit last week Monkey hadn’t played with Hot Wheels before. Its now safe to say he’s slightly obsessed! Aimed at 5+ this kit is completely different as it allows you to have ‘battles’ by launching your cars into the rotating set.

The set comes flat packed as such, but thankfully theres not much assembly required. All you really need to do is clip in the side pieces which are paired by letter. Then add the bendy bits that go over the top. I didn’t realise it initially but the set also requires four size D batteries which are the big ones! We had to borrow a couple out of torch and thankfully had a couple of spare ones too. Im gold we had them as, Monkey couldn’t wait to start playing with the set.

The main centre piece revolves around, there are four possible entry points. Only two of them have a little arrow which means only two of them will work and allow the car entry to the centre. So Monkey took quite a lot of time trying to time the car entry. The cars get an extra boost by pulling back a yellow leaver and pressing button. Kipper thought that just pressing the button was brilliant!

Once the cars enter the centre turnstile there are wheels which make the cars continue to go round and round. Until they crash or drop out. The winner of course is the one whose car is still in the loop.

Things we love:

  • Monkey really loves this set and will not stop playing with it, he’s quite happy playing alone with it. He is also talking about sharing it with his school friends when they come for play dates after school.
  • Watching the cars race round the loops is in Monkey’s words ‘awesome’
  • The launch pad is really easy to use, no adult intervention is required!
  • He quite happily plays with the set for an hour at a time, Kipper is also fascinated by it so it means I actually get the chance to have a hot cup of tea for a change.
  • The quality is good, the track robust which is just as well since it takes a reasonable amount of knocks!
  • The two launchers are easy to remove which means its really easier to store as they reduce the size significantly.

I would like it to be a little less nosy as the movement of the centre part drives a me a little bonkers. Although watching Monkey enjoy himself so much playing with it does make up for that in part at least. The Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track Set costs £49.99. The Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track Set is available to purchase online with Amazon.

    My favourite Christmas tradition is decorating our home and tree on the closest Sunday to Dec 1st! The whole family get involved and we play Christmas music and eat festive treats while we do it!

  2. This brings back many happy memories of playing Hot Wheels with my brother, he had a massive set up in bright orange. Thanks for the chance to win this fantastic prize my grandchildren would be thrilled to win.

    My Christmas tree is not designer, it is covered in baubles that the children pick each year. It also has ones from when I was little, each bauble reminds me of that Christmas and now the grandchildren are picking their baubles for the tree

    A couple of years ago, I went away for a few days in December. On returning home (to Guernsey) we flew in over the island after dark and from the air we could see the houses lit up with all their Christmas lights; that was a really lovely sight.

    We went to our local garden centre this afternoon which put on a fantastic Christmas display with ice rink, Santa’s grotto etc. We bought some fab decorations and The Elf on The Shelf! Safe to say we’re now feeling very festive!!

    our family tradition is to have warmed mince pies for breakfast on christmas morning, problem is none of us like mince pies, but we have to keep the tradition going, so we make or buy the smallest ones going!

  15. My favourite thing about Christmas is spending time with loved ones

  16. We’re normally so disorganised and do everything last minute. But this year I’m determined to be more organised like we were before we had kids. It is probably the first year that all of the kids are old enough to fully appreciate everything about Christmas. We’re going to be spending lots of time together and having a few day trips into London like going iceskating at the Natural History Museum and perhaps visiting Winter Wonderland again.

    In terms of gifts, they want a drone. My eldest daughter is obsessed with Skylanders so she will probably be hoping for more characters and crystals etc…. My youngest daughter seems to want absolutely everything according to her reaction to adverts on the TV. She does like My Little Pony quite a bit as does her twin brother.

    My son literally stole his oldest sister’s first hot wheels set last christmas, so definitely would want some more of that. He also is quite into dolls, but keeps telling his twin sister to put it on her wish list. I think he wants to play with them without sacrificing the amounts of presents he gets. He also wants a remote control car.

  17. I love putting up the tree and decorating the house – it makes the kids so excited and they love helping with it. My oldest loves art and craft and so he makes his own decorations too

    I love decorating the house for Christmas. Even today, on our walk back from the Cenotaph I let my little ones choose more decorations

    Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without
    A nagging child or two,
    Can I have this LOL Doll mum,
    Or a trip to Timbucktoo?!

    Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without
    A sumptuous feast or five,
    The diet starts the New Year Friend,
    You say, as you see your thighs

    Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without
    Family near and dear,
    You love them all,
    And work so hard,
    To bring them Christmas cheer!

    My 5 year old son has asked Santa for lego and cars this year so looks like I better get a move on with the present buying.

    All my daughter is looking forward to this Christmas is her daddy being home to spend quality time with her as he has been posted abroad for much of this year and she’s really missed him!

  36. Natasha Gandy Reply

    My daughter is hoping for the Ari perfume and my son is wanting a new gaming computer!

  37. My grandchildren have chosen what they want for Christmas – cars. I mean REAL cars, with engines and everything. The snag is the oldest is only 8. Maybe a hot wheels set would keep them happy until they are a bit older!

    Our favourite thibg is to make home made mincemeat together

    My son is hoping for an Xbox game to be under the tree.

  44. Kelly Hirst Reply

    I love this time of year, nothing better than Christmas festivities with all the family

  45. I started early with my shopping and was doing well both for the children and others. However, I seem to have run out of steam and the awkward people apparently don’t know what they want for Christmas.

  46. We are hoping for some board games that we can all play together!

  47. My son has asked for a ball. So i asked him what sort of ball and was told in a very serious voice…a round one mummy.

    So a round ball for him

  48. I love spending time with family and board games after Christmas dinner 🙂

  49. Laura Pritchard Reply

    My son is hoping for the entire contents of the Toys R Us catalogue! But mostly dinosaurs!

    This year my daughter and three granddaughters are coming to spend Christmas with us. I cannot wait to see their wee faces when santa has been 🙂

    I love decorating the tree, but not too early, just about 10 days before the big day.

  52. Lisa Wilkinson Reply

    We have just been on a steam train today to meet Santa. It was wonderful and I’m now in a Christmas mood

  53. sharon stanley Reply

    I love Christmas Eve as me, my fiance and our girls have a lovely time just watching The Polar express, drinking hot chocolate and setting a flour trap for santa. It’s the simple things like this and seeing how much the kids enjoy it, just as much as the following day when they get their gifts that makes us proud.

    my fave tradition has been carried through the family for years, my Nan, then my Mum, now me, I always put a sixpence in the Christmas pudding

    My 2 year old played a camel in his first nativity this year and was very funny as got fed up of costume half way through and took it off. My daughter can’t wait to be a sheep in her first nativity at big school this week!

    Favourite thing at Christmas is having all the family together on Christmas day and watching the kids opening their presies excitedly

    We always put our Christmas decorations up on my hubby’s birthday. The hubby tells the kids he is going to the pub with Santa, whilst he visits his parents, exchanges gifts and waits for a message to say the kids are settled in bed
