Micro Chargers Review

Taking pole position this Autumn is Micro Chargers.. 

These tiny cars race at lightening speed at the tiny micro scale of 1:175.

The newest, most revolutionary racing set, the only vehicle brand to possess the ability to race at the ultimate speed, in the most micro scale with the most minimal effort. Powered by MicroCharge technology, they only need 8 seconds of charge and will take on a race course up to 9km (scale distance) reaching scale speeds of over 600mph... incredible! 

Charge them up, hit the tracks and get racing!

With three different tracks you can have plenty of fun, racing the cars and your friends, and as the tracks are all inter-connectible you can create the ultimate track for your micro chargers! There are 36 cars to collect and with additional launcher packs or booster packs, these micro sets are sure to be a big hit this Christmas
The Loop Track Set mixes the thrills of a drag race with the spills of a loop the loop.

In the Jump Track Set, racers try to make the jump as they speed around the track. After a number of laps, flip the trap and the first past the post zooms in to the winner's enclosure for a celebrity burn-out!

Load four cars into the Time Track Playset's unique 4-car charger, set the timer, then launch them for exciting actions over bridges and hairpin turns!

We were sent the Jump Track Set for my son and he had lots of fun racing his cars on the track. But what I liked most was the size! Over the years he has had lost of racetracks and even scaletrix, but because of all the room they need for the tracks, he's only ever played with them once or twice, and for the rest of the time they've been sat in the box or scattered over his room. He doesn't have the patience to build the tracks before playing and his father can't do with the mess of having the built track all over his bedroom floor! But this Micro Charger playset is brilliant! Easy and quick to build yet small enough that he can keep it built and on his cupboard, ready and waiting for the next time he decides to race his car, and because he is playing with it more often, it doesn't feel like such a waste of money like his other race tracks did!

Of course the downside of having such small cars is that they can get lost very easily as they are so tiny! That is why I've given my son an old margarine tub to keep them 

I thouroughly recommend this race track and will buy him more tracks and cars for Christmas so that he can build the ultimate racetrack and maybe I'll even race him (if I can get his sisters to wait their turn!)
