I thought Aiden (12) would love the Nano Speed Super Vert Crash Set and when it arrived he was quite excited.
It only took me about 15 minutes to put it together and I have to say I was impressed that I did it without any help; I usually just leave those kind of toys for Ant to sort out!
It was all ready and waiting for them when they got home and the two big kids of the house (Ant and Aiden) had the first play.
I’d like to say that they loved it but unfortunately, I can’t.
First of all, they couldn’t get the little cars to go round the first lot of loops with just pulling back on the car and after a while, they gave up.
They ended up pushing it through the (rather noisy) battery powered motor.
Once they’d got them working with the help of the motor, they then got annoyed with them flying off the track all the time. They soon gave up and didn’t want to play anymore; they were talking about design faults and stuff so I went to check out other reviews on the Internet and found that the cars flying off the track isn’t really a design fault, in fact, that’s supposed to be part of the fun!
Kaycee and Ella (7 and 5) both thought it was great fun and loved when the cars went flying off the track!
Just goes to show the difference between the boys and the girls; the boys wanted more structured play and I think, more control over the cars, (they must have forgotten that it’s called a crash set!) while the girls just wanted to see them jumping off the track and trying to get them to crash.
Kaycee took some videos when they were playing so I thought I’d share one with you.
Be warned, the camera has really picked up the sound and it sounds louder on the video than it does in my living room but even so, it is quite noisy and I ended up making them play outside with it because it was giving me a headache.
