Our kid-testers loved racing their Play-Doh cars, whcih of course go extra "fast" because they're CARS characters. A great little set.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I want to play with lightening McQueen and mater play dough. I like the cars!
I like the racing mat and the cars. Matter watches the cars race.
I like to make the cars because they go real fast!
WHAT ADULTS THINK
My three year old asked for it daily. The "mater" part was a bit hard for him to press out the play dough through. It was exciting non-the-less. He played until the play dough dried up and got dirty. I bought more and he played more. A great toy, great price, would make a great present.
This is a great toy. My son loves to make the cars out of playdoh and race them around the track. He even races the playdoh cars against his toy cars.
Fantastic toy! My son asks to play with this quite often and I have recommended it to friends who have boys that are also into Cars. There are a few things that I would change, like my son wishes there was black Play-Doh included, the gas pump is a bit difficult to use and the shapes Mater makes doesn't really match with the rest of the set.
Otherwise, a great toy. My son loves the play mat and even playing with the car moulds without the Play-Doh.
This set comes with a lot of stuff! The kids love to take this out and make all sorts of shapes, though they needed help using some of the molds. We definitely had to replenish the Play-Doh, but I make a whole batch of my own, so the kids always had some on hand. The Cars theme was definitely a plus!
Trick out your favourite Cars 2 characters - Lightning McQueen and Francesco - with cool rims and other fun racing accessories. Fix them up in the pit, and then race your cars around the track. If there’s a breakdown, Mater is there to tow his friends to the pit for maintenance!
Real rolling vehicle bases mean that after you build and customise your favourite characters using PLAY-DOH compound, you can roll them around the racetrack! Re-create your favourite scenes from the movie or imagine your own adventures. After a few laps around the track, stop in the pit to mold some fun racing accessories for your vehicle. Use the lug wrench tool to give Lightning McQueen and Francesco some stylin’ new rims. Gear up for loads of creative fun!
