Ratchet Racing Rules!

I was a bit leery when I ordered the Kid Galaxy Ratchet Racer Drag Strip. It is geared towards the 3+ crowd, and my kids are 7 and 11. I'm happy to say my fears were unfounded though. Even I lost myself in the fun, playing with these with my son for over an hour.

The toy is a simple tried and true design, basically wind up and go. In this case, you take the two halves of the car and turn them until they reach their full tension. Then you and your playmate set them on the track and let’em rip! The drag strip is easy to set up and I didn't find it as  flimsy as some other reviews have indicated. There are obstacles along the raceway so the first one past them is usually the winner. If they both hit them at the same time, fun mayhem ensues. While the track itself is entertaining, it is just as much fun to set these cars going across a smooth wood or tile floor. You can even get creative and sic them after the cat or another household pet.

The cars have two halves and you can interchange them with other Ratchet Racer cars (sold separately). I really like the fact that they are 100% "kid powered" and don't need batteries. That's a big bonus if you're giving them as a gift for the holidays. That it also engages the child's creativity rather than plunking them in front of a video game is also a plus in my book. I feel the price is more than fair as well, considering the amount of play time they consume.

Ever since this toy was unpacked, these cars have been whizzing underfoot throughout the house. Both of my children have yet to tire of them. After more than three weeks, I think that says a lot. I have fun with them too though, so perhaps I'm a bit biased.
