So far our gift list suggestions have been pretty pricy, all items are well worth their MSRPs but we understand that not everyone has that kind of scratch to spend on a gift. This is #5 gift is infintely as fun as any of the previous gifts while only a fraction of the price. Ladies and gentlement I humbly suggest to you, the classic slot car set. If you are a car person or not just about everyone has at least one memory of playing with a slot car set as a kid and having more fun than should be legally allowed, even if all you did was throw the pieces of slot car tracks at each other like ninja stars a good time was had by all (except for the kid you threw the track at).
Today slot car sets are different. Instead of non-descript “car shaped” cars you can actually get scale models of the real thing in some of these sets. For example the set pictured above pits a Mercedes Benz CLK-GTR against a Super GT spec Nissan GT-R! You can also get a Ferrari Challenge set up or even solve the eternal battle of Subaru vs Mitsubishi. The choice is yours and most of these kits cost no more than 65 bucks and can all (and hopefully still) be found at Toys R Us.
