I’m excited to write this years first toy review from the 2022 Toy Fair. I’m even more ecstatic to announce that this toy will be available to test out at this years summer camp and activity fair on April 2, 2022 from 10am-2pm at the Charles County Fair Grounds. So with out further stalling; let’s start our engines and get this review rolling.
As most of you know by now, I only share about toys that promote learning through play. What I love about Carrera Go! Build N’ Race is that it’s both a toy and STEAM activity all in one. This 1:43 scale slot car set provides over 11 feet of track that can be configured in a variety of different ways to design a unique race course. Once the race track has been put together; your little racer can design one of two cars either red or blue and than take it out for a spin.
What makes slot car racing great is that the cars are like tiny model cars that go around a track right in your very own house. Unlike RC cars, you won’t need batteries on hand or have to worry about charging. These cars move along a guided track with little slots which power it to zoom around the track. The track itself is plugged into a outlet for energy.
What makes this set super cool, is that Lego bricks can be used to add design elements to the race cars and track. Making this toy a possibility for endless play!
