Balloon Racer

Price: $5.95

Watch this racer speed along using the power of air. Blow up the balloon using the carís exhaust pipe, let go and watch your balloon racer fly across the floor! It is Newtonís third law in action and an awful lot of fun too. Set up a race track and have the two included cars race each other.

Age: 6 + with adult supervision

What you get

Two balloon racers in a blister pack. The racers can be used again and again.

How does it work?

Place the carís plastic exhaust pipe in your mouth and blow up the balloon. Hold the car with one finger firmly over the exhaust pipe to prevent air escaping and the balloon deflating. Let it go and watch the air whoosh out backwards, propelling the racer forwards at surprising speeds. The balloon racer will whistle and zoom until all the air is expelled. Never under-estimate the power of air.
