Before the holiday season, I was fortunate enough to be contacted by Janina from Southard Communications on behalf of Jada Toys. Janina wanted to know if I was interested in trying and reviewing one of their Battle Machines toys here for you loyal reader.
Of course, I said yes. The toy arrived and my kids played with it. And then the holidays happened and everything got pushed off and put on to the back burner…
So, without further ado, my review.
When the toy arrived, he jumped right in, insisting on putting it together himself (he should be able to… he’s nine) so I just sat back and watched. He had it together by the time I got the batteries in the cars and remotes.
The Battle Machines: Combat Crash is a track set with two cars and two remotes. SUPER easy to put together, SUPER easy to operate. The track simply snaps together, and the signs snap into the rail. Then you put the cars on the track and pull the trigger on the remote. For an extra turbo boost, flip up the guard on the turbo button and KAZOW! You’re zipping around the track. Guide your car around the track with the steering wheel but be careful! If anything hits you from behind, your doors and hood pop off!! Race with your friend for lots of combat crashing fun! And you can race on and off the track!
To quote my Big Boy, the Combat Crash is “Totally Awesome!”. He just loved putting the track together and then racing and crashing his car into his sister’s. Little Miss had loads of fun too. Her favorite part was watching her brother crash into her car and the hood and doors popping off. Major giggle factor there.
Its also pretty durable. After we finished playing with it, Big Boy took the track apart and put it back in the box. As he was bringing the box down to the basement, it opened and all the pieces tumbled down the basement stairs! Not a nick or crack in site. Whew! I was going to be pretty upset if we just got this great new toy and it broke apart due to a fall down some stairs.
Special thanks to Jada Toys for allowing me to try out their toy and also to Janina and Southard Communications for the opportunity. I can’t wait to do it again!
