Remote controlled vehicles are hot items in toys today and the VTech Ultimate RC Speedway is a great way to introduce younger children to the world of remote controlled vehicles. Read the overview and watch the video …
VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway
Recommended Age: Toddler to 5 years
Batteries: 5 AAA batteries required
Assembly: Yes, but NOT difficult
If your toddler is showing an interest in race cars, then this toy is sure to delight him (or her!). This fun playset comes with one SmartPoint race car, one remote controller, and 13.5 feet of interchangeable tracks. Once assembled, the speedway measures approximately 4.5 feet wide so make sure there’s room to play.
Although this toy will give joy to a toddler, a slightly older child can dream up their own track design and put it together to customize their racetrack.
Ralph and His Race Car
Along with the track, the SmartPoint Race Car features Ralph (the driver) who entertains and will say phrases, make sounds and share playful music when a button is activated. This is a learning car as well because it will say the letter R along with the name of the car.
The remote control is shaped like a steering wheel and it’s easy to manage, even for young children. This is because the controller has only two buttons, forward and backward.
On the racetrack, you’ll find that there are SmartPoints. These eight areas function as checkpoints. When the car arrives at a checkpoint, this is when it lights up and plays music.
This is useful in teaching toddlers about cause and effect as well as giving them a fun playtime. If you have more than one child or if you’re planning on using this toy at a party, you’ll want to keep in mind that the VTech Ultimate RC Speedway only comes with one car and one remote controller.
Additional cars and remotes can be purchased separately if you need them for more than one child. The Speedway can hold up to 3 cars on the racetrack at one time. That means three players can race against each other to find out who’s the fastest.
The Speedway Is Easy To Assemble
The VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway is easy to assemble and the pieces snap into place.
One thing that parents love about the Ultimate RC Speedway is that it can easily connect with other VTech racetracks. This means you and your child could use pieces from other playsets to create a unique racetrack that’s bigger than the one pictured on the box.
Kids love watching their car go around the racetrack and parents love the sturdy design of the toy. That means even if your child is a little rough with the racetrack, it won’t break or stop working.
Although this particular playset comes with five AAA “demo batteries,” it’s best to go ahead and purchase regular batteries which will provide hours of fun playtime. And don’t forget that if you decide to add an extra car, you’ll need additional batteries as well.
