Darda® toy cars has several products that the whole family could have fun with. As the website states, Darda is a divison of its parent company, Wm. K. Walthers, Inc. located in Milwaukee, WI. Walthers is widely known as one of the largest model railroad product suppliers in the United States.
Darda sent us the NASCAR® Victory Lane Set.
Victory Lane is meant for children over 4 and is 53" x 25" x 12.5" when set up. The Jeff Gordon® and Jimmie Johnson® cars are included and ready to race. The cars have a friction powered motor so there is no need for batteries or electricity. When the car is wound up, it is placed at the start of the track. Simply push the green button and the cars are off. Just like any race, the cars come around the final turn and a checkered flag is ready to announce the winner.
The set comes with over 60 race track pieces and can be set up several different ways. You can use the instructions or create your own. I was using the instructions and it took me about 20 minutes to get the track set up. Here are all of the pieces.
To put the track together, you use two types of clear plastic parts. This is the piece that holds the flat sections of race track together. You simply slide one each piece onto the connector and they stay together.
Once it is together, the cars are ready to race. To wind them up, you push down and move them back and forth until you hear a clicking noise. They then sit at the starting line until you hit the green button, and then they're off.
We all enjoyed playing with the race track. Evan is a little too young to wind the cars up, but we let him push the green button when it was time for the cars to go. The cars go around the track really fast and I am amazed that they don't need batteries. A car would occasionally crash on the loop part, but they usually ran smoothly on the track.
