Light-Up Marble Racers Review and Giveaway



Move over, Matchbox! Take a hike, Hotwheels! There's a new kid in town: Light-Up Marble Racers. We received a set of 6 cars from MomSelect to try out, and when they arrived, my kids (yes, even The Pea) were so excited. Here's what we thought of them:

The Basics
Light-Up Racers from Skulduggery are small plastic cars with an LED marble embedded in their center. The marble lights up when you shake the car hard. They are the same size as Hot Wheels racers and can run on Hot Wheels tracks. They come in 6 different designs, and each pack contains a racer and racing decals . They are available for sale at CVS.



The Bongga
These cars are a lot of fun! It's surprising how much my kids enjoy playing with them. I guess the flashing lights make them more interesting and help spark their imaginations (they pretend the cars have laser lights, or are exploding, etc...). I like the fact that they are the same size as Hot Wheels are can run on their tracks. I also like the fact that each car comes with stickers that kids can use to decorate their cars. It makes it appealing to girls as well as boys (they actually have 2 "girly" designs"). The stickers also give it an extra crafty dimension and allows kids to express their individuality.

The Blah
When I first saw how these racers worked, I assumed that all you had to do to get the cars to light up was to get them rolling. I was wrong. The light-up mechanism doesn't always work -- which can be frustrating to kids. You need to bang them down hard on a surface to start them lighting up -- which can make fussy parents nervous when they see these cars coming down hard on their glass coffee tables or antique dining tables. Also, at $7.99 each, they're a lot more expensive than regular $1.50 Hot Wheels cars. Time will tell whether they are as sturdy as Hot Wheels, but for now they're providing my kids with lots of opportunities for pretend play.


The Bottom Line
Light-Up Marble Racers are fun little toys that spark kids' imagination and creativity!
