Tagamoto is a set of interactive battery operated toy cars using the same sensor technology as the wildly popular toy HexBugs.
Instead of bugs, Tagamoto cars react to interchangeable sticker codes that are stuck onto a racetrack. And these are truly kids cars!
Setting It Up
Assembly of the track was very straightforward and our 4 year old found it very easy to snap the track pieces together.
She got excited coming up with new track designs and sometimes had leftover pieces. Tagamoto sets are very flexible that way.
A word of warning – the code stickers and those for road signs are quite small and requires a bit of patience to apply.
To turn the car on, simply hold the “on” button on the bottom of the vehicle for several seconds.
3 Ways to Play
Roads and Codes: Tagamoto car is placed on the track and reacts to codes. This was our family’s favourite.
Off Road: Press and hold the “on” button and the car will drive on its own.
Free Roll: Turn the car off and snap down the front wheels for non motorized play time.
Four Thumbs Up!
Both kids, 4 and 1, loved the Tagamoto Road City Set for different reasons.
My 1 year old son was fascinated by the different sounds the car made and was constantly trying to imitate what he heard.
My 4 year old daughter loved watching how the car would respond as it drove over the codes – crashing, speeding up, flashing lights on and off, breaking down and getting repaired.
