Our office geek girls were happy to see Princess Peach represented in this slot car set. Finally, self-rescuing princesses everywhere can have their own car rather than being a stinky plumber. Oh, and we can do what needs to be done, which is leaving Mario and Luigi in our dust! Take that, boys! Okay, but we aren’t bitter. Really. The best part about this set is that it makes us wish we had digital slot car racing when we were kids. Seriously, if you remember slot car sets as being sucky, it’s because the technology was sucky. This set is amazing. When people from the office go missing, we often find them hiding in the vacant cube where we set up our Mario Kart track. With a digital slot car set, you can run all three cars at the same time, share lanes and even pass other cars using one of the two passing lanes. Totally sweet and much more realistic than being stuck on one track the whole time! Setup of the track takes about a half hour, so even if you don’t have a dedicated space to keep it out all the time, it’s easy enough to break it down and reassemble it later. The three cars (Mario, Luigi, Peach) run really well and are super fast at top speeds – but be careful, go too fast around the turns and you may spin off the road! Just like real Mario Kart, except without the bananas.
