Hot Wheels Daredevil Derby Playset (Worth The Hassle of Setting Up?)

By Kelsey

0 from 0 review(s)

Hot Wheels is known for their variety of fast moving and very cool racetrack designs. This week I played with the Hot Wheels Daredevil Derby Playset and although it didn’t blow my mind, it was fun to play with. I think it could have been better built but it does the job and I enjoyed my playtime with it.

Age Range: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 year olds

Unboxing this set wasn’t terribly difficult but I did have to tear into the packaging to get the included car out of the box. Inside all the pieces were bagged in two bags and the instructions walk you through the set up. Hot Wheels Daredevil Derby

The Playtime Experience

In order to play with this Hot Wheels set you have to put it all together first. There are three obstacle pieces that are able to be placed along the track, a piece that looks like a bus, with an open back and a button for launching the Hot Wheel car down the track. The track pieces are very secure once everything is put together but in order to get there it is going to take some muscle to slide the track pieces and obstacles in to place. To play, put the car in the launcher and start each of the obstacles swinging or spinning. Then launch the car and watch to see if it can dodge the obstacles or if it will get stopped in its tracks.

I really like how fast the launcher launches the Hot Wheel down the track.

Things I Didn't Like

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the obstacles. More specifically the flag and the punching fist spinner didn’t work very well and I found them more annoying than entertaining.

Final Note

I wasn’t blown away with the Hot Wheels Daredevil Derby Playset but it does a good job of entertaining. It was also budget friendly so if you have a little Hot Wheels fan at home this one is an inexpensive way to add to the collection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVxIpxTv3I4 (You may also like: 24 Essential Hot Wheels Tracks and Cars)
