Back in September, I attended an event for bloggers called Blog On, you can read about it all here. In short, the idea behind it is to help bloggers improve skills by the way of workshops and to bring influencers and brands together to make connections. I had the best time!
Whilst there I spotted something that I knew my youngest offspring, Reilly would absolutely love! The Hot Wheels Drone. Anything RC and he’s in his happy place for hours, team that with his favourite car collection and I knew it was a winning combo. When I was offered one for us to review there was no chance of turning it down.
The Hot Wheels Drone and Vehicle Set are from Bladez Toys and it received Best New Toy 2017 at the London Toy Fair back in January.

Small And Mighty
The little drone can fit neatly in the palm of a small hand. I was really impressed with how stable it can fly and how quickly Reilly became confident and super skilled in flying it around the room. The Drone also attaches to a small Hot Wheels car, essentially making it a two in one toy, and although it can’t fly when attached, it can move pretty quick.
Reilly had so much fun and gets the set out to play with often. As a parent and onlooker (I have zero flying skills haha) the only two things I can see as being slightly problematic are the charging time of 60 minutes and small hairs tend to get wrapped around the tiny propellers. Keeping a small set of tweezers on hand just to remove the hairs is handy. Other than those though it’s definitely a winner.
The Hot Wheels Drone and Vehicle set is available to buy from Maplins here.
