You may have seen the adverts for the new transforming Hot Wheels in the past few weeks. Ballistiks is the new range of Hot Wheels vehicles which transform from a ball into a super cool toy car. They sent us the Rapid Fire Blaster and a spare Ballistiks car to play with.
The toy itself takes batteries and projects a laser dot that shows you where your car is going to end up. You can load in a number of cars and fire them in quick succession. I imagine if you had two children it could be quite fun to have one each and 'battle' cars to see who's explodes or goes furthest.
The Ballistiks have to hit an object with force to transform into a car, which meant my son was firing them at quite close range at the box, doors and his Dad. This didn't seem to bother him though, and he loved the way they bounce open to race.
This set retail around £19.99 which is a little too much, but Argos currently have it for £12.99 which is an ideal price for the Rapid Fire Blaster, which comes with a car included. At that price its a suitable toy to pick up for a school friend's birthday present, for any boys or girls who love Hot Wheels toys.
