The latest and greatest presents for car enthusiasts

 – TOYS –


Ultimate Batmobile Lego model

Ultimate Batmobile Lego model

  • Age 10+
  • Price £149.99

Batman wouldn’t be the same without his Batsuit and Batmobile. This Lego Batman movie set is a tribute to the Batmobile, and as the name suggests, it’s as good as things get for bat-fans. Not one, not two but four different vehicles can be built by budding crime-fighters. There’s the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank and Batcycle. The set includes a Bat Signal Lego light and spring-loaded shooters. Peow, peow!

Ultimate Lightning McQueen

Ultimate Lightning McQueen

  • Age 5+
  • Price £279.99

Are you a Piston Cup Champion? More to the point, are your children? This Disney Pixar spin-off is a modern-day radio-controlled car, operated using an app (iOS or Android) and able to merge the real-world with the virtual-world. Lightning McQueen hits speeds of up to 6mph, the rechargeable battery lasts for 40 minutes and the car’s expression changes as it’s being driven. Time to drift those turns.

Cars 3 Ultimate Florida Speedway Track Set

  • Age 4+
  • Price £79.99

Based on the epic chase scene in Cars 3, this track set comes with steeply banked turns, the ability to switch lanes and a motorised wheel that propels the scale cars along the two tracks. However, don’t forget that only one car – Lightning McQueen – is included. Otherwise the little ones will be racing solo on Christmas Day.


Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track Set

  • Age 5+
  • Price £34.99

Just when you thought Hot Wheels might be a present from Christmas-past, the toy brand has come up with a new concept that puts a fresh spin on the car-razy game. The Roto Revolution Track Set features a rotating loop-the-loop that requires perfect timing from players to power the cars into the centre section via the tunnels.

Nerf Nitro MotoFury Rapid Rally

Nerf Nitro MotoFury Rapid Rally

  • Age 5+
  • Price £36.33

Nerf guns usually fire foam imitation bullets from one side of the sitting room to the other, but Nerf Nitro guns fire stunt cars at ramps and other obstacles – with spectacular results. This pack includes one gun, nine cars and 12 obstacles. Open fire!

Star Wars Luke Skywalker Landspeeder 12v ride-on

Star Wars Luke Skywalker Landspeeder 12v ride-on

  • Age 4-8
  • Price £399.99

For any young Star Wars fan, this is the hottest toy out there this Christmas but at nearly £400, parents will have to have deep pockets. Mind you, it looks very authentic, takes two passengers at time and has an interactive dashboard with lights and real movie sounds, including dialogue from C-3PO, R2-D2 and Luke Skywalker, so it could be seen as value for money. And some adults may be wishing they could have a go.

But it at Toys R Us


Land Rover Defender 6v electric ride-on

Land Rover Defender 6v electric ride-on

  • Age 3+
  • Price £75

Almost as good and far less likely to break the bank is this Land Rover Defender ride-on. The real car, now out of production, is a classic design and highly sought-after, so this is a great way to celebrate an icon and keeps the kids happy at the same time. One of them at a time, anyway.

But it at Halfords


Mercedes SLS Ride On Car

Mercedes SLS ride-on car

  • Age 2+
  • Price £25

This ride-on isn’t electric and so comes at a bargain price but will keep little car fans very happy indeed. They can park this officially-licensed product next to your own Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Or next to your Fiesta.
