Do you have a kiddo that likes cars or trucks? My boys do and they were pretty excited when they saw that we received a Motorworks™ OSX Open Wheel Speed 3.0 and Slingshot Speed Launcher to review from The Manhattan Toy Company.

OfficialMotorworksManhattanToyThe Manhattan Toy Co. provides customers with high quality and safe toys for kiddos. They have many different toys and collections to choose from. One of them being Motorworks™. Motorworks™ offers customizable wooden toy vehicles, accessories and play sets.


 My boys went right to work on setting up the Slingshot Speed launcher and thought it was pretty cool that it comes with stickers to decorate it. It is very easy to use by adding the provided stretchy band (comes with extras as well) that makes the vehicles race on down the line. The Slingshot Speed Launcher works on most of the Motorworks™ vehicles sold by The Manhattan Toy Co.

The OXS Open Wheel Speed 3.0 is pretty  neat and looks like a real race car. It’s well-built and seems like it will last even if it crashes while racing. =)

My boys, even my youngest has a kick out of this set and really enjoy playing with them. They like them so much they are asking for more cars to use in the Slingshot Speed Launcher.


Check out this short video clip of the Slingshot in action.

We give Motorworks™ 2 thumbs up and think your kiddo would love them too. They would make a great gift this upcoming holiday season.
