After checking out their new “Extreme Action” line last week (review here), this week, Toy State hit us with a new entry from their “Hyper Racer” line of Hot Wheels vehicles, created as part of an agreement with Mattel. Recommended for Ages 3 and Up, the Hyper Racer assortment serves up a pair of large-scale vehicles based on Yur So Fast and Spin King, both originally offered as 1:64 scale diecast cars from the Hot Wheels mainline starting in 2010 and 2012, respectively. Toy State’s specialty is ACTION, and the Hyper Racers are infused with lights, sound, music and motorized play. Yur So Fast rolled into the toy testing facility here at Rock Father HQ, and my girls had no problem taking it for a spin…

The LED lighting of the Hyper Racer is the big draw here, as this ride really stands out from the pack – even here, in a house that has more than a few toy cars floating around. With three buttons placed right on the trunk of the car, kids can cycle through different functions of play, each with sound in-sync with the lighting.
Great for indoor-outdoor use, in sunlight or utter darkness, the Hot Wheels Hyper Racer offers high-octane fun for under $20, making it a fine addition to any collection of vehicles that are meant for real play. Ripping up the sidewalk the other night, this little car proved just as worthy on pavement as it is on the laminate floor.
