Hey boys, a new generation of racing toys have arrived! Have you seen them?
SCAN2GO is not your ordinary race track, nor are the race cars. Nope, there’s no pull backs or buttons to push. These hot cars have a really cool start up.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
To activate a car, first switch the car to ‘on‘. Next, you need a set of distinctive power and turbo cards containing innovative technology (included in the box). In order to get the engine going you scan the bar code on each card right through the slot located atop the car. Yes, just like a credit card! The combination of swiping these cards activates turbo sequences and determines the speed of your car while racing.
Look at it like filling up your race car with fuel before taking a spin.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
One of the great things about SCAN2GO is that by adding new flagor vehicles, expansion tracks, and turbo & power card packs, you can make this set totally awesome. It’s extremely customizable! Each vehicle is designed to stay in constant motion so they can achieve high rates of speed.
Assembly of the 2-lane track is super quick and easy. Plus, it requires NO TOOLS! The track pieces just slide together and are held with little brackets. Once the track is completed, insert 2 AA batteries inside the car (you do need a Philips screwdriver for this step). Within just 5 – 10 minutes, your child is burning rubber baby!
One thing I noticed while putting the track together is that these cars are different than any other I’ve seen. Not only do they have 4 wheels (where they belong) but an extra set of 4 wheels along the sides of the car. These extra tires help guide the vehicle along the curvy track so it can move super fast.
The only drawback to this set is that it comes with just one vehicle. So, if you’re looking to race, which is what the set is intended for, you have to purchase an additional car or else you’re riding solo.
Additional fagor vehicles available for purchase!
Scan2Go, as you may already know, is a tv series which made it’s U.S. television debut in October (last month) on Cartoon Network. And thanks to it’s popularity MGA Entertainment launched the internationally acclaimed SCAN2GO toys and accessories in North America for the very first time to coincide with the show.
