Review: Hot Wheels Tub Racers Play Set

Wednesday, February 24, 2010
A few weeks ago I was chosen to review the aforementioned bath toy by I was excited to road test (pun intended) the toy as my girls aren't big on playing with cars. With this toy being such a departure from their regular bathtime entertainment, I thought we'd be a great choice for objective and constructive feedback.
The Tub Racers Play Set is made completely of plastic and is designed to float on water. It is equipped with 2 ramps that launch cars into the water, a water squirter, a secret trap door, and a glass bottom boat. It is bright and colorful, and the assembly is super easy, requiring the locking of a few pieces into place.

As soon as I took it out of the box and assembled it, my 4 year old immediately began to play with it. She was seriously enjoying it on dry land. A good sign. I thought to myself, if she's having this much fun out of the water, just wait until she gets in the bathtub with it. Later that evening, it was time for the rubber to meet the road and the water.

The girls eagerly jumped into the bathtub with their new toy. And all I can say is that the sounds of the squealing and laughing were ear splitting. I kid you not. I was in the hallway just outside the bathroom, and if I could have found earplugs, I would've had them in my ears.

Overall, the Tub Racers Play Set is a delightful toy which offers plenty of enjoyment for boy or girl, in or out of the bathtub. In fact, this would make a perfect toy for the swimming pool. The only downside I found with Tub Racers Play Set is that the manufacturer includes only one car with the product. Considering that the average American household has 2.3 children, I thought including only one car was odd. You can use other Hot Wheels cars, but they don't work as well as the car designed to be used with the toy.

The Hot Wheels Tub Racers Play Set retails for around $20 and be purchased at the following locations:
