I knew from the party packet that these were easy to build vehicles with interchangeable parts. I had no idea they would be so cool. As soon as I opened the box, I knew the kids were going to be thrilled. We received a nice variety of Ridemakerz to share with our party guests, including some great superhero ones that I assumed would be the most popular.
The wheels for each vehicle have rims that can be flipped for two different looks. They also include various extra parts from rocket launchers to engines, many of which can be used on other cars. We received Spiderman, Ironman and Batman as well as several cars, a truck and military vehicles. This was a great mix that allowed everyone to find something they liked.
I loved that these were super easy to assemble. I was expecting to need to assist them, but they were able to do it all themselves. The top and bottom of the car attach easily after snapping in the motor. Snap in the rims, wheels and extra pieces and you are done.You can see in the video how simple snapping the pieces together was for one of the 5 year old guests.(I tried getting a full video but a missing rim interrupted midway through.)
I especially loved the button push hydraulics that allow you to lower and raise the front and back individually adding to the different looks possible. I think these would make great gifts or a fun toy to collect. I would love to see some girly versions for the little car divas, but beyond that I had no complaints.
