Light Up Marble Racers - A Review AND a Give Away!

Friday, July 16, 2010

A package arrived at our house last week, and even more exciting than THAT fact, was what was inside...

Light Up Marble Racers!

What are light up Marble Racers?

Light Up Marble Racers combine the racing excitement of mini-toy sports cars and the classic amusement of marbles to create a fun new toy for boys and girls 3 years of age and older. Kids customize their Marble Racers with themed, easy to use, crack & peel racing decals, race their creations on standard tracks, and then watch as the flashing LED marble rolls to keep pace with their speeding car. Light Up Marble Racers are the anti-video game: an old fashioned-type toy that gets kids away from the catatonic video game state, piques their creativity, and helps them to interact with other children.
The kids were sooo excited to get their hands on these...
And while this mom doesn't care for toys that come without the stickers already in place, the kids couldn't WAIT to put their own stickers on their own cars, and had a GREAT time doing it. (I'm not terribly type A but I do like stickers to be put in place correctly and on straight! GAH!)

They wasted no time in testing them out on the kitchen floor -

The LED marbles are so fun to watch!
The police cruiser really looks like it has flashing lights as it chases the 'bad guy' -
Somewhere, D picked up "STOP! FBI! You're under arrest!"
It's hilarious to listen to him!
There are six different cars in all - and the kids easily divided them out into 'boy cars' and 'girl cars' and both had a GREAT time playing with them - The different styles include Police Racer, Fire Racer, Cats' Eye Racer, Cyclone Racer, Confetti Racer, and Volcano Racer - They retail for $4.99 to $6.99.

I simply love classic, quiet toys like this that get the kids' imaginations going ~ Don't you?
'Stop! FBI! You're under arrest!'

While we are no strangers to video games in our house (did you know I once got up at like 4 am to sit outside Target awaiting the arrival of the PS2 with my then boyfriend- who is now my husband?) The way I see it, our kids have their whole lives to become addicted to video games. Why would I put them in front of the tv with a video game controller in hand now, when they could be using their imaginations? THAT, friends, is what I love about toys like this! While I'm not opposed to CERTAIN video games, I can't justify exposing our kids to them at this stage of the game.

*** Thank you to Skullduggery Inc for providing my 3 & 4 year olds with a set of these Light Up Marble Racers for review. Blah Blah Blah Disclosure Statement Blah Blah Blah ***
