Though I don’t talk about them too much, Kyle’s two boys are here with us on the weekends. Though we’re far past the feeling out stage, sometimes I feel it’s difficult for me to engage with them. Not for lack of trying, but it’s just the truth. It’s been easier in the past year and I know it will only get better. That being said, when I started looking for more kids stuff for the Gift Guide, I had them in mind as well.
I know they have a general affection for Hot Wheels, so I looked for something similar and came across Blu Track. I thought that the concept looked pretty neat and after reaching out, I had secured a set to review.

Blu Track is a Featured Gift in our Holiday Gift Guide!
I never had toy cars as a kid, so I left this all up to Kyle and the boys. Above you’ll see T standing by.
They tried putting the track higher (held on by a suction cup on the window) to generate more speed and it seemed to work pretty well. I think they got the best results with non Blu Track cars, but I could be wrong there. They also tried creating loops and twists in the track, that didn’t go over too well but with the one initial loop right after the drop- it seemed to hold up. Through trial and error, they also learned to use a chair to help stabilize the track a bit.
And here’s a test run:
Not too shabby, huh?
Overall we’re really happy with the Blu Track set, the boys had a lot of fun setting this up in a variety of ways and trying to see what would work best with the numerous loops and corkscrew turns that they kept putting in.
The Blu Track starter set- which includes two Blu Track cars, an 18 ft track, suction cup for the window, and track stabilizer, is available for purchase on Blu Track.com
