Micro Chargers are tiny cars with designs that run on a track. There are two cars, a red one and a blue one. The cars are put in the chargers for 15 seconds. Then, you press a yellow button one of the cars races on the track. The cars go really fast. The blue one is faster. I like the Micro Chargers because you get to do races and burnout fights. My brother and I love to play races and spin-out fights with the Micro Chargers. It's a good toy for people who like to collect these kinds of cars. There are many cars to collect. If you collect all the tracks the Micro Chargers ride on, you make a super track. The cars run out of energy quickly. So when they try to jump the bridge, they can't. All in all, this is a really fun toy to play with.

The name of the toy is Hot Wheels Ballistiks Vehicle. Ballistiks has a tunnel that leads the ball outside. This ball can transform into a car. When you pull a lever, the ball shoots out like a cannonball. When it comes out of the cannon, the ball changes back to a car again. It is a cool-looking car. It's blue and has a gray protective covering over it.

My 6-year-old brother loved Ballistiks. When I gave it to him to play with, he had a grin on his face. The next day, my brother started playing with the toy. I noticed he was having fun because he pretended he was a soldier and the toy, Ballistiks, was a cannon.

The Perler Fused Beads Kit, Bead 'N Carry has a green case that holds one clear square pegboard. The toy contains 1,200 beads in eight different colors. The case also has ironing paper and a double-sided pattern sheet. With the beads, you can make a design. After you make the design on the pegboard, put the ironing paper on top of the beads. Preheat the iron to medium. Iron the design for 10 to 20 seconds. When you're done, turn the design over and iron that side. I liked this because I enjoy making designs. I made a star and circle. It's a very amazing toy. I also liked it because I can create any design I wanted. I am very patient, even though the beads were always falling off. I always had to put the beads in carefully. I think only a patient person would want the Perler.

The controller is shaped like a watch. It has buttons for the car to move in all directions. The car moves fast. When you move the car, the front lights up when you press the buttons on the watch. I really want this MI6 Remote Control Car and so would other kids. One of the reasons I like this car is because of the remote control watch. It looks really cool and awesome. It also moves really fast.

This awesome toy is part of a new line of James Bond-007 cars. The car has forward and backward action. It also has lights, sounds and music. I like the Secret Agent Car because it's fast. I like the "lasers" on the car. You push buttons to activate the secret weapons and the music and to make it move.
