Like many car games, Hotwheels Racing Circuit is about collecting cars and making your cars look cool. If kids are already Hotwheels fans, this may be a way to extend their hobby. The subscription commitment is for a year and costs $29.99, which is expensive when compared to the 99 cents cost of most physical hotwheel cars. However the graphics are really good, which helps to make these toy cars come alive. This game is best played on new, faster computers and kids with slow machines, may get frustrated. They may have to pop open a new window and the browser may have to be minimized in order to play the game.

Online interaction: Kids can look at each others profiles and garages but there is no actual interaction as there isn't any text chat.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
