Toy Unboxing Review: Hot Wheels FXB53 ID Race Portal


I knew nothing about this product before we got it in stock. After some research I learnt that the race portal can be connected to a racetrack to record laps and speed times. This Hot Wheels ID race Portal is designed to transport physical to digital play.

It comes with two exclusive diecast race cars, which are fitted with a chip so they can record the cars performance. The free app needs to be downloaded on a smart device or tablet, which then enables you to count laps and measure speed. The hot wheels cars exclusive ID must be scanned and then track speeds and laps can be recorded, enabling you to set new records!

The packaging is extremely strong and glossy and would be ideal as a gift. It is of premium quality. You can lift the flap on the box to reveal the portal and the two exclusive race cars, Twin Mill and GT Hunter, which are covered with transparent packaging so you can clearly see the product. Inside, the contents include the race portal, two exclusive diecast cars and lap counters.

Mini games can be played where speeds and laps can be tracked of up to 6 toy cars at a time using the race portal. The better you get, the more you can level up in the app!

I have a four-and-a-half-year-old daughter would love this product! She loves playing with cars. This product is suitable for children aged 4 plus.

This is a Mattel product which oozes premium quality as they are one of the leading toy manufacturers in the world.

Toy Unboxing Review: Forky and Duke Caboom - Disney Pixar Toy Story 4 GDP71 Toy Figure Playsets


When I opened this product, I was so impressed by the way it is presented, with the big Disney Pixar Toy Story 4 brightly coloured banner in the background and a clear shell encasing the two play figures so you can clearly see them even in their protective packaging.

It is a Disney Pixar officially licensed product, and the characters look true to their appearance in the movie so fans will not be disappointed. Duke has a removable helmet and Forky looks like his typically dishevelled self!

These detailed figures are highly posable which is great for imaginary and creative play. They are also scaled perfectly and have lots of movie-inspired features, including Duke Cabooms helmet and cape, as well as Forkys pipe cleaner arms. Duke is approximately 17 cm in height, with Forky being shorter on a relative scale. This makes them a perfect size for storytelling and recreating favourite movie scenes!

It also ensures they are having fun without being consumed by an iPad screen or the TV as I do try to minimise this as much as possible. Playing with toy figures also improves children’s fine motor skills which is great for their development.
