N’s not big on playing with cars. Give him tractors, lorries, quad bikes, trains and he’s happy though.

When I spotted these Micro Riderz Loop and Jump sets, I knew these would be hours of fun for him, and probably lots of other children.

micro riderz loop and jump pack

The Micro Riderz are only 4.5cm long, but are really speedy.  If they were scaled up, the equivalent speeds of up to 470mph! To make them go, you just rev them up and let go, with them able to reach up to 60 metres distance.

They also do tricks. You just build the course you want – the sets include loop and ramps (and 2 bikes), and enjoy having fun.  To be honest, I reckon my 36 year old brother would love these as much as N!

They’d be great for Christmas presents, and I’m already thinking about the December to February birthday party rush.  These could be added to my birthday present stash that I’m struggling to keep hidden from N.

A set costs £9.99 from Red5, but if you’re too impatient,  I’ve been given 3 Micro Riderz loop and jump sets to giveaway for my readers.  So just enter via the rafflecopter widget – answering the question in the comments for the mandatory entry and one of the 3 sets could be yours in time for Christmas.
