Pros: Multiple kids can play, more importantly it brings smiles and laughter to the children.
Cons: The Track isn't as durable as it should be for kids, it falls apart easily.
This track is no ordinary race track. Not only can you race two cars side by side, you can also set them up to go in opposite directions so they crash into each other. Now, if you are not aware of how a shake n go car works, it does exactly what the name states. You shake it, set it down and off it goes. How long you shake the car is going to determine how far the car goes.
Two Shake n Go cars are included with this track. They are a little different than the original cars, when they crash the doors and hood fling open like they have been damaged. This makes my son giggle, it is so funny. You can also purchase many other Shake n Go cars that will work with this track.
The track is setup in a figure 8, with two lanes. It has two ramps, one for each lane. The ramps are located right before the center of the track. This launches the cars over the intersection which makes for good crashing. The ramps are removable if you dont want the high flying action. It also has a button on the side of the track that will pull down the guard rail and send your car flying off the track.
The starting point of the race has arrows pointing in both directions letting you know you can go either way. Those arrows lift up inside of the track by pulling a lever outside of the track. After shaking the cars you set them on the arrow and that allows you to keep the cars stationary until you want to race. When both cars are placed there is a button right next to the lever outside of the track that releases the cars. (Pushing the button is my sons favorite part)
Setting up the track is very easy and the instructions are laid out perfectly. Once the track is setup it will come apart occasionally, especially with kids using it. But just like the initial setup it is easily put back together.
The Fisher Price Shake n Go Crash Up Speedway is great for kids from age 2 and up. Although they recommend the age range of 3-7, my son is barely 2 years old and it is by far his favorite toy.
