Last week we got a very exiting parcel delivered through the door and i couldn’t wait to show Finnster his surprise. Golden Bear have send us their brand new Go MINI Night Challenge Raceway to try out.
My original plan was to build the track when the little one is asleep and Finn is at school so he will come home to the Surprise but it didn’t go all by plan so i ended up with 2 over exiting children trying to help me build the track which obviously took a little while longer then i anticipated!
It was simple enough to follow the instructions and put the track pieces together (the above picture which you can find on the back of the box too did help as well) not so simply to keep my children off the track and letting me get on with assembling. It all went well till i realised there wasn’t a single screwdriver in the house (and yes i am married to a electrician who took them all to work with him) so we had to wait till daddy come home so we could put the batteries in and finally have a race together!
So let me tell you a few facts about the new Go MINI Night Challenge Raceway:
The exciting Dual Speed Switching technology allows parents to choose the right level of driving ability for their children. Select ‘low’ speed for younger racers and the car will never leave the track, so no crashes and no frustration! For the older drivers switch to ‘high’ speed for an added turbo boost and watch as the cars zoom around the bends.
The track can also be enjoyed by a single player as they race against the pace car,
the speed of which can also be controlled.
For ultra-cool street action the underside of the cars glow as they race around in the dark.
With this amazing track set, no racing adventure is too big, or too fast!
What we thought about the Go MINI Night Challenge Raceway:
So we moved the car track up onto our dining room table so he can play with Daddy or on its own in peace without his little sister trying to grab the cars off. The track itself feels very sturdy and even with it being moved a few times up the table and back down to the floor all the pieces stayed put and the track stayed intact. We love the white race track with the colourful red and blue barriers and the graffiti type painting on both ends makes it look even more fun and when racing at “night” (well late afternoon right) without the lights on its pretty cool
to see the cars light up whilst racing!
