What our experts think
My First Scalextric provides an accessible way for introducing younger children to building a track and race cars around it. Once an adult set it up, our testers were really enthusiastic about playing with the set. Some of the children sat back and watched the adults modelling how the game worked before having a go themselves. Once they saw how much fun it was they were very eager to all have a turn; it has been great for them to develop their turn-taking and sharing skills.
The children loved that the speed settings could be adjusted to either go slower if they weren’t as confident or faster to whiz around the track. They also had a great time competing against each other in races with the other children watching cheering them on. This is fantastic for introducing young children to the concept of winning and losing.
