We were chuffed to bits to be asked to try out the new My First Scalextric. For years and years I’ve always been a fan of Scalextric sets. They are great fun for all the family.
Baby girl is at that inquisitive stage and loves to explore. When she first saw the box she wanted to get in it! Then of course she decided to stand on the box, it will support the weight of a 20 month old!
The box is brightly coloured and is perfectly designed for preschoolers.

About My First Scalextric
A great introduction to the world of Scalextric racing for kids 3+, featuring an easy-to-assemble figure-of-eight track.
The two rally cars and adjustable power hand-controllers are colour coded in red and yellow to match chevrons on the circuit. The Magnatraction technology helps to keep the cars on the track, and variable hand-controllers allow the speed of racing to be adjusted depending on skill level.
My First Scalextric is fully compatible with the Micro Scalextric range of sets and cars, allowing you to extend your track and add new cars – the possibilities are endless!
What we thought
My husband got out the instructions and started fitting all the pieces together. I do believe it is a little tricky to get the race track pieces fitted together if a 3 year old was doing it, which is the recommended age.
Baby girl loved getting all the bits and pieces out of the box. They are securely packed due to the fragile nature of the track wires.
Once we had the track all set up it’s a real eye catcher for little ones. The red car and yellow car each have their own spots on the track. Baby girl did like to take the car’s off the track but they are easy for her to put straight back on. She loves to hold the controllers as you can see, they are simple to hold/use and the cars can be put on a slower speed or the faster setting.
Baby girl loved playing with My First Scalextric, I can see her having hours of fun with it. It will definitely keep little ones busy for a while! We highly recommend this to budding little first racers.
