Summer is a great time to get outside, run play, and exhaust small children to the point of near collapse so that mommy can have a glass of wine without worrying about little feet pitter-pattering out of bed.
But what is a mom to do when its too rainy (or in some areas of the country, far too hot) to safely play outside?!
Well this summer Mattel has come out with some great new toys to help keep away the rainy day blues, and my car loving boys were fortunate enough to have the chance to test out a couple of their newest Hot Wheels items.
The second toy we got to test out was the Wall Tracks Down Hill Flip Drop. This is one part of their large collection of wall track that can be linked together to create great off the ground fun!!
After putting it up the first time I had to take it down, find new 3M Command Strips (fortunately I had some in a drawer) and start over.
Much to my relief, once put together the track worked great and my boys LOVED every minute they got lining up their cars and letting each one take a turn. The tracks did come off the brackets a little too easy, but fortunately they are also easy to pop back in and my boys were able to fix it themselves after I showed them how.
Mattel definitely helped my boys and I weather this particularly stormy weekend....and they are giving you a chance to beat the rainy day blues as well with some awesome toys from Mattel!
