Create with Blu Track

Sharing is caring!

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.

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

I like that you can suction it up on the window to make it higher. My girls would love this! We have a much smaller race track for our cars at home and they love it so I know they would love this!

My boys would love this! Love the unlimited possibilities b/c it’s so flexible!

Thanks for posting the videos. One easy trick for the loops is to place something against the loop to keep it from flexing when the car goes through it. As you watch you see the loop flex forward as the car goes into it. Placing a chair leg, or a box, or something against that loop will keep it from flexing, and you’ll be able to get multiple loops to work successfully. Also good to note in doing multiple loops is each successive loop must be slightly smaller than the loop before it. If you watch the stop-motion video on… Read more »
