Ok, for all the parents that said this product is broke regarding the Slime Monster yes & no. In order for this product to work correctly the Slime Monster must be installed so that all four green clips are installed flush inside its green base. Once all four clips are flush. Not three or two of them, all four them, he will work properly. In order for him to say upright after that, you must then lift up the two orange doors "First" then lift the Slime Monster. Note: The orange doors MUST be upright first for the Slime Monster to be upright every time. I know I repeated myself but people forget. I had they same problems getting this thing to work like everyone else but once I installed it like this it works every time. No tools needed to modify. It just takes a little patience to get all four clips to set in flush. I will try to take some close photos of the base of the slime monster to show you the right way it should look. I hope this helps some of you out.

I really like the idea of this set. It's great for kids who love monsters like my son. It has an elevator for cars and they go up just by pushing on the Mutant hazard figure. The cars go down the track and either into the Mutant Alligator (or crocodile) or into the orange walls activating the mutant slime monster. What I don't like about this product is the instructions were not very simple. It took me quite awhile to figure out how to put this set together. Sometimes when you push the Mutant Hazard guy down to lift the elevator the cars just fall off. The track pieces do not fit together as nicely as you would want them to. This problem makes the cars get stuck or slows them down as they are going down the track. The biggest problem is the Green Slime Monster. In the instructions it doesn't explain well enough how to keep him from constantly flopping over. I had to do some research on the internet and found a youtube video review of this product. In the video the guy explains that you have to lift one of the orange doors up because it has a lever to keep the green slime monster from falling down. If they fix these kind of issues when and if they make another set it will be great!

OK after slime monster secret discovered
from Wake Forest, NC
Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Monster 500 Toxic Terror Trap Playset:
Once we discovered the secret to getting the slime monster to stand up, my four year has had a ball with it. Thanks to the reviewers who posted the solution of making sure that the gate closest to the alligator is up before trying to stand the monster up. It was easy enough to put together but the track doesn't fit together very tightly. It doesn't seem to effect how the cars race down, it just bothers me to look at it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Last Ditch Effort!!
from King George, VA
About Me Grandparent
OK so after getting this for my 5 y/o grandson for Christmas (he was so excited until it was rendered useless upon setup) like so many before me. Same problem. Monster wouldn't stay in place and track comes apart too easy. After reading the post regarding the orange gates having to be up, yep, that fixed the problem hence now giving it 3 stars instead of 1. Will still need to glue the track together to ensure the little one doesn't get angry and frustrated about this flaw.Now my question is why did the manufacturer not include this info in the instructions??? It would have made all the difference. Now you are left with a lot of damage control to contend with. Toooo many frustrated and unhappy kids and parents because of this one "little" oversight. Nothing worse than a disappointed kid on Christmas morning. Especially when it was so easily preventable. In a nutshell, I thank the poster who showed me how to correctly set up the toy. Maybe TRU has a spot for you on their team!! Saved the day!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

PIECE OF JUNK...DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
By Michelle M.
from Cleveland, OH
About Me Parent Of Multiples (Twins etc)
As most of the reviews state, the pieces do not stay together and FALL APART with the slightest tap. I never have written a review on any toy, this is my first. I feel so strongly about this piece of JUNK that I have to write and warn others...DO NOT BUY THIS. IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY. The BOX was of higher quality then the plastic junk inside!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
good idea, poor grade
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
This was a good idea for a my boy who loves monsters. But everytime he played it feel apart. Is made very cheap and I had to glue it together so he could use it. For as cheap as it is made the price should have been a lot less.

Great Toy!! NOT DEFECTIVE!! Please read.
By Monster Dad
from Evansville, IN
About Me First Time Parent, Stay At Home Parent
My 4 year old received the entire Monster 500 line for Christmas, and we LOVE it! IT IS NOT DEFECTIVE. All you have to do to ensure the Slime Monster stands, rotates properly and falls when defeated is MAKE SURE THE RIGHT HAND ORANGE GATE IS UP. That's it. It took a two minute internet search to figure this out, and I can't believe some people have owned multiples of the set without even accidentally figuring this out. Awesome set.

About Me Working Parent
So incredibly disappointed in this toy from Santa. It has a design flaw that hinders the rotation of the monster. The monster gets stuck and it starts clicking. Therefore it doesn't work all! The cars can't get through at all. Complete junk. How did Toysrus even bring this to market?It is being returned. I'd give it zero stars if it would allow it!! JUNK!
worst toy ever
By Mike sick of spending money on junk
from Lorain Ohio
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
This product does not go together as it should. Its construction is so poor that it doesn't even stay together once you get it close to fitting together and my son even said it is junk. Although I don't encourage that language I applauded his honesty. There is no positive feedback I can provide on this product. Do Not Buy This Total Junk.
Kids love it.....as a parent I don't.
from Stevens Point, WI
My 6 yr old son received this for Christmas from his grandparents. Upon putting it together for the cost of the item, I think the quality is very poor. The instructions are horrible and we assembled based on the picture on the box with the instruction sheet. The track doesn't fit as snug as one would like but luckily doesn't hinder the car going down the track. Once together the Monster arch would not stay up, couldn't figure it out and by chance I found a video on YouTube of a guy demonstrating it showing the middle orange ramp needs to be up to lock the Monster arch up-right. We got that to work twice! Needless to say I called Toys r Us and they were fantastic about replacing the product and so far this second one is working fine.My son loves it however as a parent I would not recommend this product to another parent. Between the poor quality, and seeing many problems with this from other parents, I just don't think the quality is there for the price.
Broken out of the box
By Dad to twin boys
from Rochester, NY
I wish I saw that this was made by fast lane before I let my son purchase this with his christmas money. Just like everyone else, the monster head does not stay up and it interferes with the cars coming down the track. Our alligators mouth also didn't work properly. The only thing that did work was the car that came with it. The instructions were awful as well.Like anything made by fast lane do not purchase this toy.
Just what 5 year old wanted!
from Newark, DE
About Me Education Oriented, Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
My 5 year old wanted this from Santa, and got it - along with 3 extra cars. It was a bit of a pain to set-up because of the inexpensive materials, but once set up - it worked great and my 2 boys (5 and 6) enjoyed it. The enjoyment didn't last too long, and their other cars wouldn't fit on the track so it became an isolated set. We had a sleepover with 4 more boys and the track was played with for awhile with them too. I feel like its play may have been exhausted already, but my son was happy - so I am too! Oh - and have to turn the power on/off often to reset the big monster.
