Ready, set, go! Racing down Hape's best-selling Switchback Racetrack is no normal ride. Tiny cars fly off each track segment only to land on another segment below and continue their journey to the bottom. Track includes two lanes so kids can time their cars individually setting and beating speed records, or pit two cars against each other to see which is faster. Each car is brightly painted with spiral detailing on each wheel, while the track itself is designed with cool, checkered graphics. Made from wood sourced from environmentally sustainable forests. Durable child-safe paint finish and solid wood construction are hallmarks of Hape toys. Hape's toys stimulate children through every stage of development and help nurture and develop their natural abilities. All Hape products sold in North America meet or exceed all applicable safety standards. The Switchback Racetrack is a proud recipient of the 2009 Creative Child Preferred Choice Award and the 2009 Parents Choice Approved Award.
