Hot Wheels Spiral Stack-Up Playset Review & VIDEO! Hot Wheels FUNdamentals Learning Project

The Boys Ready to Test Out
Hot Wheels Spiral Stack-Up Playset!
School is now over and my 5 kids, ages 5- to 10-years old are out in full force!  Therefore, I find that on rainy days and lazy days, it's essential to have activities available when the kids are indoors.  The combined activity of building a playset and then playing Hot Wheels cars with it, keeps my boys occupied in a constructive fashion.  They love to build new track structures and roadways, problem-solve when they're not architecturally sound, and use their imaginations when playing cars together.   

I've mentioned previously that studies have shown that play improves memory, language skills and can help with academic focus. It's simple to engage kids with educational play-based activities, and to continue the learning process all year round.  The Hot Wheels FUNdamentals Learning Project is geared to teachers and parents of kids ages 3- to 7-years old, and is intended to encourage learning over the summer vacation.  Choose from level JK/SK and grade 1 lesson plans, and then print out the sheets with just a click.  


A short while ago I wrote about the Hot Wheels Super Speed Blastway playset, which my youngest sons really enjoyed.  The boys also tested out the Hot Wheels Spiral Stack-Up playset, which was quite suitable for 5- and 6-year olds.  Parent assembly is definitely required, but my 6-year old placed all the sticker decals on the set all by himself and helped interpret the instructions.

Watch the VIDEO below of the Hot Wheels Spiral Stack Up playset!

What is your child or grandchild's all-time favourite toy (or toys)?  What activities are the most popular in your household on lazy or rainy days?

  2. When my son was young, his Hot Wheels collection were his favourite toys. He had a little track but nothing as great as this. I foresee many hours of fun and imaginative play for your kids!

  4. This is a really fabulous idea! I always worry that the kids brains get too lazy over the summer and with my little guy heading into grade one this fall these would be perfect to keep his brain active, LOL. :-)
