If you are looking for an original gift for the little one in your life, you should check out the rest of this review. Find out how much children enjoyed playing in the dark with Magic Tracks glow in the dark race track.
11 Feet of Glow in the Dark Largest Toy Race Track
You get a large total of 11-feet of bendable race tracks. (Now an 18 ft., 360 piece Mega Set is available.) This includes various colored tracks, which all glow in the dark. The colors are red, blue, green, and yellow. There is a total of 220 pieces to the complete set. The tracks can be connected in any order and then laid out on the floor.
The pieces are large – a little less than ½ an inch in width. The company recommends this for ages 3 and up, but parents should use their own discretion. If you think that these pieces are too small for your child, then you should consider putting the track together yourself instead of allowing him or her to assemble the individual track pieces themselves.
Flexible Tracks Can Bend in Any Direction
Once the track is connected, it can be bent or flexed in any direction. You can create a large oval track or add several twists and turns. The 220 pieces connect and then bend and curve making one of the largest toy race tracks that glow in the dark. This allows your children to create a new race track within minutes.
LED Light Up Race Cars
The set also comes with an LED race car. The car is a small toy car about the size of Hot Wheels cars, with 5 LED lights. The lights turn on with the flip of a switch on the bottom of the car and the car is powered by 1.5 volt AAA batteries (not included).
78 Stickers to Decorate the Cars
One of the coolest features of the Magic Tracks glow in the dark race track is the 78 stickers. This provides plenty of options for decorating the car in unique and original ways. Since there is only one car included, it is unlikely your child will fit 39 stickers on the cars. So, they can use the leftover stickers for their other toy cars.

Magic Tracks Glow in the Dark Customer Reviews
Despite the fact that the Magic Tracks race car track set is a best-seller on Amazon, there are just a handful of reviews to date. One third of the reviewers gave the Magic Tracks Set 5-stars out of 5. According Amazon purchasers, younger children seemed to really like the Magic Tracks Largest Toy Race Track. Older children (8 and up) were not so impressed.
After looking at other sites, a handful of customer feedback could be found. There is a mixture of positive and negative reviews and comments.
If you are planning on purchasing Magic Tracks, make sure that you buy from a reputable website such as First Choice. There have been several complaints on other sites about misplaced or missing orders.
The customers that purchased the Magic Tracks set claim that their children love playing with the tracks. It appears that older kids, perhaps 8 or older, may be too old to truly enjoy it. But, younger children, ages 3 to 7, seem to really have fun playing with the glow in the dark tracks. The large track pieces are easy to connect allowing children to build the largest toy race track that glows in the dark however they like. The set also comes with plenty of stickers, too, so kids can decorate the LED light up cars.
On other review sites, several customers have stated that this “as seen on TV” item really works. The tracks actually do glow when you turn off the lights. Though, you should hold a lamp near the tracks for several seconds right before you turn off the lights. The exposure to light helps increase the vibrancy of the glow in the dark feature. The light up race cars actually can keep the tracks glowing reasonably well.
The Bottom Line
Should you get the Magic Track glow in the dark race track? If you need a fun gift for younger children, Magic Tracks is a good buy. It costs about the same as a video game and also provides hours of fun. Kids will enjoy building the track, decorating the cars, and then turning off the lights to see the largest (at 11 feet) toy race track glow in the dark as the race car(s) light up the track. Note that Magic Tracks are very similar to the highly rated Mindscope Twister Tracks.
Who’s This Good For
Magic Tracks is ideal for the young child who isn’t quite ready for mechanical toys like metal train sets or metal race cars. With this set the little boy or girl (under 8) can enjoy the experience of a ‘glow in the dark’ race car/track kit they can easily manipulate without parents fearing for their safety.
UPDATE: Magic Tracks has released a new upgraded package they call the “Magic Tracks Mega Set.” It includes 18 feet of track instead of 11 and some other track and race car upgrades. The total set is an increase from 220 pieces to 360 pieces. However, the Mindscope Twister Tracks 360 is a better deal. You can scroll down to see the price comparison.
