The Perfect Gift This Christmas: My First Scalextric!

We love a good toy review, especially when the toy in question is amazing! We were super excited to be able to review My First Scalextric (£39.99), an awesome car racing game aimed at children aged 3-6 who love a bit of fun and excitement when it comes to play.

Play is a huge part of our lifestyle; it can involve playing together or alone (both of which have their benefits!), it makes everyone happy and it helps to nurture imagination. With Scalextric, it did all this and more!

George and Molly carefully opened the box and were immediately wary of piecing the track together without their Daddy's help. Warren didn't hesitate to help, getting down on the ground with George and Molly to construct the 'figure of eight' (or as the kids like to describe it, 'infinity'!) track. 

It didn't take long for them to put it together, and I liked how they had to figure out how to attach the controllers. It didn't take long to put together at all, then Warren plugged it in and they were off! 

It was super easy to use, with matching red and yellow chevrons so George and Molly knew where to place their cars, as well as matching controllers with varied speed depending on the pressure used. The set is also compatible with other sets so you could extend it if you wanted to!

What I loved most as the kids played was their infectious belly laughter and squeals of delight. I can honestly say, they had and are still having so much fun with this toy; they love it so much and I love how it encourages us to join in together as a family. We can take it in turns, have races or just enjoy the ride around the track.Just look at the joy on Molly's face...

 George and Molly adore it and I know we'll be looking at extending the track in the very near future! From hand/eye co-ordination to healthy competition to simply having some special family time, My First Scalextric is the perfect gift for children 3+ this Christmas. 

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.
