My two were over the moon to see
this new Golden
Bear Go MINI set to review and could not wait to get the product
unboxed and start racing.

It was quick and relatively simple to set up and the end
result is very sturdy, ideal for hours and hours of play! Hubbie liked how the parts to raise the set
had clips to hold it to the track, making moving the track around easier as it stayed
more stable. Just make sure you have
lots of batteries this product needs 8 AA ones so definitely heavy on battery
usage BUT so worth it to see your children happy and entertained, actually my
hubbie was too, he could not resist joining in and having a go himself.
My boys aged 6 and 8 used to get
frustrated with their Scalextric
set because the cars would always be flying off the track, but this set seems
to work much better even in high speed.
When in low speed for younger
children (aimed at 3-5 year olds) the cars never leave the track but my two
enjoyed having the luxury of choice and alternating between high and low
speed. It’s good for them to feel like
they have more control over the set.
You can race in either one or two
player mode; in one player mode you have a pace car to race against. I like how they have incorporated that into
the toy as not everyone has a sibling, friend or parent over all the time to
coax into joining the race.
Mini Night Challenge Raceway is available to buy from Argos for
£49.99. I think it’s a fair price for a
great toy. We have not had any problems
with it so far; we all love how when it gets dark the lights look very
impressive whizzing around the track. I
think this is a wonderful Christmas gift idea that will suit children 3 to 8
