Loved this Set!!

This erector set offers beginner builders an opportunity to build their first racetrack. Easy enough to build with assistance will peak their interest for larger sets with more difficulty as they grow up.

An impressive display of flawed design..

When the folks over at ERECTOR (or MECCANO as it's known elsewhere in the world) approached me about checking out their new line of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG products for possible inclusion in my 2012...Read complete review

When the folks over at ERECTOR (or MECCANO as it's known elsewhere in the world) approached me about checking out their new line of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG products for possible inclusion in my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide on my personal website, The Rock Father, I was excited. What was even more exciting was that they sent us the top-of-the-line offering from their collection, the "Sonic & Knuckles Chemical Plant Racing Tracks," which is a Toys "R" Us Exclusive here in the 'States. While we received the set and prepped it for review in early November, it didn't make the cut for my gift guide.

With 165+ Pieces, this ERECTOR set poses an impressive and time-consuming task right out of the box. Combining two of my oldest daughter's favorite activities - "building" and "cars" - I figured this would be a great way to spend an afternoon as the infant of the house enjoyed a nap. The building process itself was enjoyable, albeit lengthy. We started with assembling Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna (both from the popular world of SEGA games) along with their motorized vehicles.

This battery-powered duo is FAST, which is something I'd expect from the speed-laced world of Sonic the Hedgehog. On their own, these vehicles were speeding across the laminate floor of our kitchen/toy-testing facility here at Rock Father HQ upon completion. The vehicles themselves scored well with the already octane-obsessed little Addie.

Assembly of the track was slightly daunting, as Addie lost interest right around the time where the numerous decals where ready to be applied. That was a Daddy-project, and one I wasn't too fond of. Truth be told, even as a child, I wasn't a big fan of applying stickers and decals, and that hasn't really changed in 36 years. All built and ready to go, Addie was ready to race!

THE FATAL FLAW: The cars absolutely do not stay on the track at all. The outer "lip" around the edges is so small that the powerful cars just jump right over it and go flying in every possible direction. There are a few flimsy inserts made of clear plastic that seem intended to guide the cars around the corners, but they just fail completely. But here's the real kicker - the problem appears to be only with the sets in the U.S. market! The same set marketed in the U.K. features tall inserts made of yellow plastic that keep the cars on the track pretty well, as evidenced in a video from UK-based Kids Top Toy Reviews. Even more interesting, the official product video from ERECTOR never actually shows the cars making a turn. In fairness, I took screenshots from both videos and sent the images to ERECTOR's press representative back in November prior to writing this review.

I received no explanation for the difference in sets, but was told that my report was the first they'd heard of the "cars flying off the track," though as the sets have gotten out there, I'm definitely not the only one now.

An additional warning is that those with long hair might want to watch out for those fast-moving wheels (though that goes for any motorized vehicle)...

THE BOTTOM LINE: This is an expensive toy that I would be angered to have paid money for. Even if it was cheap, you can't have a "Racing Set" on which you can't actually race. While the time spent building it with my daughter was enjoyable, we could've just cracked out the LEGOs for some afternoon fun. Toy makers need to be held accountable for what they're putting out there for consumers to spend their hard-earned money on, and this is an example of a set that is completely unacceptable. Frustrated parents and disappointed kids are likely the end result for those who happen to acquire a SONIC & KNUCKLES CHEMICAL PLANT RACING TRACK.

      Me and my 3 year old son bought this toy because he loves sonic and race cars. Well it's not easy to put together the pieces they constantly slip and separate. The race cars started out good they were fast, so fast that they didn't even stay on the track at all. So after they run for a while even if the batteries are new the cars didn't even go a few inches. So needless to say this toy was very disappointing.

          Was Xmas present from Santa. As others have stated that a very consuming project to put together. Santa spent about 4 hours trying to put it together and then change to different figuration hoping the cars would stay on the track. No design of track help keep the cars on track. Plus it seems to eat up batteries very quickly. Also the package had missing parts, so it will be going back to Toy R Us. Grandson lost interest very quickly because of the cars jumping off track.

                    My 5 year old picked this out as he had been given a gift card for his birthday. It seemed very good value (should have been a clue) so we bought it. It is fairly simple to put together, however we found it does not STAY together very well. The links loosen and fall apart easily, which is incredibly frustrating. Most annoying however is that the cars that come with this don't run successfully along the track. One goes so fast it runs right over the edge (and keeps going) and the other one gets stuck every other second no matter what direction it is headed. Really unhappy with the product and definitely would not recommend.

                        The tracks do NOT work! Side rails are too low. Sonic and Knuckles kept jumping off the tracks. Tracks are almost useless. RETURNED this playset
                        same day! Totally disappointed.
