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.

Comments about Meccano 1010097 1010097 Erector Sonic the Hedgehog Construction Playset - Sonic and Knuckles Chemical Plant:

I spent alot of time putting this together for my boys. Looks real cool. Then the cars just flew off the track, never made the turn or stayed on. I took them and placed onto my Super Mario Kero set and runs fine.

Looks nice but track is very poorly made and does not work with the fast cars.

Dont waste your money and time. I am tempted to take it appart and return to Toy r Us.

        I got this for christmas, was thinking "well, this is going to be great" for i am a collector of sonic-themed items, and i had never had any problems with things like this before with items. When i opened the package, there was a lot of items, bags, very large and small, making me think that this is no "problemo." well, it was a problem. the set took a long time to assemble itself, and when it was sticker time, that's when i just stopped to get a break. Well, i put the stickers on anyways, which didn't really take that long (thankfully) and attached the figures to the cars, blah blah blah, moving on

        when it came to racing time, i was hoping for a smooth track and riding with the cars, but it turned out because it turns out that they were just TOO FAST that they couldn't even stay on the track. Disappointment. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is a fan of racing or sonic, for it isn't worth the wait or price, plus some parts were missing as well, so that's a big flop. (i also got the green hill track separate from this series, and it didn't work out with this track as well.)

              We found this on sale from 45 to 25 dollars.
              So that was a great buye. I also recommend
              Rechargable AAA batteries cause the reg ones die fast.

                  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.
