The races can now begin. Scan2Go Race Car Starter Set has everything your child needs to start racing. The set’s centerpiece is the Falgor car, which is decorated in Scan2Go hero Kaz Gordon’s unique style. The track is easy to set up, just snap together and use the clips to make it stay in place. Since the track isn’t really marked for start or finish lines for races, we just used some small stickers, applied with a ruler for precise placement – no cheating!
The Falgor car uses an innovative design that allows kids to use racing cards to program the car and activate power and turbo “charges” during races. Before the kids begin the race kids swipe a racing card in the car’s slot to store power or turbo. The lights flash when a card is scanned showing the kids that it’s activated.
Each Scan2Go race card holds a power or a turbo “charge”. When it’s scanned the car responds to the power of the card.
While the Scan2Go design idea seems to be one of collectability, I can see how they would be. However it’s also designed for kids ages 4 up, I feel like it does fall into the younger age groups.
The starter kit shown here comes with one car, so you’ll probably want to grab an extra car so that the race can really be on for competition. One of the other cars I looked at online was pretty neat. It’s name is Giamoth. Each character has their own story, car and specialty power. Collect the cards to have the fastest car. There are cards, cars and expansion packs that can be purchased to go with this starter set. The race car requires 2 “AA” batteries, which are not included.
