Over the past 3 years our playroom has transformed from all pink, purple, sparkly princessy things to more superhero, trucks, cars, and more brute toys. My girls are growing up and their tastes are changing as they are discovering who they are as individuals, but they are also excited about the toys their little brother is naturally drawn to. While my son loves marrying Barbie to Spiderman, he also has a fascination with racing, trains, and monster trucks. I almost see a little bit of my husband as a child when he plays these toys with him, and it warms my heart to see this connection.
Last Christmas many of the older kids in the family had asked for a flexible racing track system. When we received the Max Flex RC 300 Combo Edition Racing set, my girls, their father, and even my little guy were excited to get racing! This set is geared towards children 6 and up, so if you have little ones that want to get in on the action, be sure to supervise them at all times. The girls took the lead in setting up a simple race track, and even exclaimed that they can finally put together tracks! These tracks were super easy to lock in place, but to get the actual racetrack as seen on the box, they needed some help from dad.
Everyone can get in on the action with the Max Flex RC Racing set. The set comes with two remote controlled cars, so you can race each other and have the winner race the next person in line. We did have some issues keeping the cars on the track at first. When they are pushed to their max limit, they drive too fast to stay on the track. Once everyone learns to throttle the remote a bit, then the cars stay on their tracks. The girls favorite part of the Max Flex RC Racing set was the light up tracks. As the cars speed through the tracks, they leave behind a lit trail for a few seconds. They thought it was magical and would forego actual racing just to see the trails light up.
The set comes with two cars and two remote controls. The remote controls take two AA batteries and the race cars connect to the remote when it’s time for them to charge. Charging the cars is super quick and doesn’t take long at all, so my advice is to set the cars up to charge before setting up the tracks so the kids can play right away.
My middle daughter, 6 years old, said that this set is something Santa probably has in his workshop because all the kids will want it this year! I have to agree with her, we had an awesome time as a family setting up the tracks and playing together. You can get your Max Flex RC 300 Combo Edition Racing Set by following the link. My kids have had this set for about a month, and it comes out often during play time and creates a lot of excitement- so I feel it’s something that will get a lot of use.
