So Many Issues
on 6 January 2015
I was so excited purchasing this for my sons Christmas, he's a huge Hot Wheels fan and when he said he wanted a garage I didn't believe I'd find one that suited his age-group - I found this while looking for other Hot Wheels products and upon opening it on Christmas Day he was so excited.
Once open I found it wasn't so great which was maybe why I'd never known about this previously. The lever that's suppose to move the cars didn't work - it still doesn't work and I have no idea how to fix it. The car lift breaks all the time as it moves up and down via a turning handle that's attached to the lift via a bit of string and the string always falls off. Trying to build it was another problem as the instructions are terrible and once you eventually work it out, the garage looks quite cheap. The stickers have to be put on yourself which is fine but the spaces for the stickers aren't the same size so the stickers all look squint once you apply them.
My son does play with it when he's bored but doesn't get excited by it as there's little he can do. Most Hot Wheels cars get stuck when being driven down the ramp as they're too big (they're standard Hot Wheels cars which is crazy as this is a Hot Wheels garage).
Would I recommend it? Probably not.
