Is the Hot Wheels Ultimate Auto Garage Worth Buying?
The first thing that you will have to allow for when buying the Hot Wheels Ultimate Auto Garage is the assembly. The Ultimate Garage is a vast labyrinth of pieces that will require careful concentration to assemble (you can use the video above to walk you through the process), but it is certainly worth it when you’re done. Many parents have reported that taking the time to build the Ultimate Garage without their children present allows for an easier construction, as children can often wish to get involved and help without much success. But once it’s assembled, customers report that their children love it and play with it for hours! It has no small parts, so is not a choking hazard to children.
The Ultimate Garage really is huge, allowing for incredibly immersive and imaginative play. Its size also lends itself well to bringing in other toys for playtime, not just limited to other Hot Wheels toys. Lights and sounds activate when the Ultimate Garage is turned on and the 3 C batteries loaded, but they are not necessary for playtime, which is a welcome fact. It is also worth noting that the set includes 5 different cars, a helicopter and even a shark that wants to eat cars the that cross its path. This is particularly rare for a set of this type. Most do not include vehicles.
One negative that came up a few times is that the toy arrived in a plain brown box, sometimes with no instructions and sometimes with a warped track. It is available from a number of sellers through Amazon.com. If you’re considering ordering this toy online, choose a seller that states specifically that the condition of the toy is “New” and sealed in its packaging.
When considering whether you should buy the Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage, you should consider whether your child enjoys playing with cars, and whether you have the space for what is a rather substantially sized toy. If the answer to both these questions is yes, then the Ultimate Garage is the garage set for you. Packed full of activities, actions and ideas, the Ultimate Garage will provide your children with hours of imaginative and creative play.
