Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare – Review and Giveaway

My house if full of nothing but boys. Because of this, it is also full of hundreds upon hundreds of cars. No, I am not exaggerating. My 6 year old has been obsessed with Hot Wheels die cast cars since he was about two and he has since collected over 400 cars! Always being up for the latest and greatest car toys, he was thrilled when we received a box containing the new Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare track set.

{About the Double Dare Snare}

“Double Dare Snare allows boys to race 1:64 scale Hot Wheels side by side, down a twisty track, through a hair-raising loop and over a jump at the edge of a steep canyon. Inspired by the real life crew of Team drivers, this daring stunt set proves that two vehicles are better than one.”

{Our Experience}

We were given the chance to review the Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare set as well as three new Team Hot Wheels cars. If you have boys, you know the look on their face when they see that toy box. The wide-eyed “I can’t wait to get my hands on this” excitement is almost too much to control and they hop around the room excitedly waiting for you to figure out how to put the toy together. Luckily, the Double Dare Snare set comes with a minimal amount of assembly required and best of all, no batteries are needed! This is a huge plus for me. 

After just a few minutes of looking at the step by step picture instructions, we had the track setup and ready to race. I was pretty impressed with the fact that everything fit together easily and there was no hammering, screw driving or other painstaking techniques needed for assembly. The track also stayed together well after several rounds of play, a problem we have had with other brands of tracks in the past. 

The track is really easy to operate and would work well even for younger children. It really is as simple as 1,2,3. All you have to do is clip on the rescue pod, press down the button to set the ejection ramp for a fair start to the race and then each racer just has to time their buttons right in order to eject their car from the ramp and win!

While the track is simple, it is also tons of fun! The boys played with it for an hour easily and still were begging for more when it was time for lunch. The thing that makes this so great is that it is not a one person toy like most car track sets, it is a race set. So, you can have fun trying out different sizes and types of cars against each other to see which one will go faster. The boys quickly learned that the van did not go nearly as fast on the track as the slower cars. 

After the fun they had with the Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare, it was time for some “car themed” lunch. We had race car shaped grilled cheese sandwiches with tire shaped crackers and “oil slick” chocolate pudding.
