My kids love cars. Matchbox cars, wood cars, busses, the movie Cars, watching cars out of the upstairs window on the street below. We take cars with us every where we go and even keep some in the car! When I heard about Paper Traxtoys,I knew this would be an instant hit with them! What could be more fun than a race track attached to your wall for all those cars to jump, crash, fly, and race? This track resulted in over an hour of playtime the first afternoon in our house. I call that a serious win!
Paper Trax are a paper based race track which attach to your walls for hours of fun! The Paper Trax are completely recyclable and attach harmlessly to your walls using 3M Command Strips. The Trax come in a box of 10 track sections PLUS the box they come in can be made into an extra track! The tracks were very easy to put together. There are instructions printed on EACH piece of track! A couple simple folds, insert tabs into slots, and push the tabs in. Hannah (3 years old) was able to help me even!
Additionally, these are not just boring printed paper. The Speedway Super Track is shown and it has words printed on the wall, race cars printed on the side, and best of all tire tracks on the road surface! The tracks have a lip so the cars will stay on the tracks on the walls. They all have tapered ends on the track to overlap nicely with the next piece, while not slowing down the cars. The box also includes all of the 3M Command Strips necessary to attach the tracks to the walls. (Note: please test so you don’t remove paint etc!) I was able to easily attach and even move a couple of the tracks. You can’t see the 3M Command Strips! There is a lip on the track which goes against the wall – so that all those colored matchbox cars don’t scratch up the wall!
The Paper Trax can be configured in many different ways to incorporate jumps or crashes! My kids are a little on the shorter side so we didn’t go too crazy with our track design, however I am planning on buying some new 3M Command Strips in a couple months and updating the configuration! The kids loved racing their cars from both ends and seeing if they could crash! The loved having ‘jumps’ in the track and cracked up if a car didn’t make the jump! This is definitely and activity that they will play for longer than 5 minutes. I seriously appreciate that!
Paper Trax also have a Dino edition& a Corner Track pack if you are using in a room and want to go around a corner! If you have kids or grandkids who LOVE race cars – this needs to be on their Christmas list! This product has moved to the top of my toy list for these kids!
