We were recently sent the Hot Wheels 4-Lane Tower Track Set and the Hot Wheels Deluxe Stunt Crash Ramp to try. My son has previously reviewed the 10-in-1 Super Track Set, so we were excited to see how well these new sets went along with the other set we received. Both the boy and the girl really enjoy playing with HotWheels. I think it's a shame that often their marketing is aimed purely at boys, my daughter probably spent more time playing with it than my son.

Would I buy it?
Yes, I would definitely buy the four lane tower starter set. I liked the way it worked and the children loved how easy it was to have races against each other (they are rather competitive). It was great for starting off the cars on different levels as well. I am not so sure about the stunt crash ramp. It seems a bit pointless simply to crash the car, but perhaps I am just missing the point!
Easy to assemble
Great for competing against each other
Fabulous way to start lots of different cars off at the same time
Keeps the children entertained for a long time
Takes up a lot of room. We are lucky that our dining room hasn't got a table in it, so the children can play with lots of space
Hot Wheels currently have a promotion: Catch the Gold Car! If you but 10 Hot Wheels cars and send your receipts in, you are entitled to receive a free gold car.

Disclosure: We were sent a 4 Lane Tower Track Set and a Deluxe Stunt Crash Ramp for the purpose of review. This had no impact on this post, which is honest and fair.
