Do you have a little Spider-Man fan at home or one in your holiday gift list? Our three-year-old is a huge Spider-Man fan and he was super excited to receive two of the latest Spider-Man toys from Hasbro for the Holiday Season to review.

We received the Playskool Heroes Marvel Spider-Man Adventures Web Racing Funhouse Playset and Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man R/C Wall-Racing Spider Cycle.

Spider-Man fun Playset

Spider-Man Adventures Web Racing Funhouse Playset

This cool racing track set comes with an exclusive Spider-Man figure, a vehicle and a launcher for figure-8 racing.

The Web Racing Funhouse Playset features two ways to play. Children can play with the action figures (additional figures and action figure vehicles sold separately) or they can do figure-8 racing.

During action figure play the exclusive Spider-Man figure can swing off the cycle and capture the Green Goblin figure in the web trap to save the day before finishing the race. Children can make Spider-Man swing off the cycle, soar around the tower and spring the web trap.  I love that the action figure-play encourages creative and imaginative play.

When figure-8 racing children can push the launcher to get the race started and swing the arm to complete the loops. No batteries needed!

The Web Racing Funhouse Playset provides countless hours of fun for little ones (ages 3-7) and  it is full of web-slinging adventures for every little Spider-Man fan. My son really enjoys playing with the playset and he even incorporated his own racing cars and other vehicles into the race. I love when he is happy at play and using his imagination at the same time.

Spider-Man R/C Wall-Racing Spider Cycle

Spiderman Spider Cycle

The Spider-Man Remote-Controlled Spider Cycle is a gravity-defying vehicle that drives in any direction, even upside-down! Children control the actions by using a remote control and they can make Spider-Man crawl the walls and zoom all over the place. This toy is recommended for ages 6+.

My son loves playing with his remote-controlled cars but this is one of his new favourites. Unlike his other R/C vehicles the Spider-Man Spider Cycle goes almost EVERYWHERE. It’s funny to turn around and see the little motorcycle going up the walls and on the ceiling. He finds it hilarious and plays non-stop with it.


The Spider Cycle clings to the walls by using a mini-vacuum. It can go up on walls, windows and many other clean, dry and flat surfaces. It is very cool to see how it goes up the walls and on the ceiling so easily, even my husband liked this toy.

The little vehicle comes with rechargeable batteries included but you do need new batteries for the controller (4 AA batteries total). If you are picking this up as a holiday present I recommend you purchase a set of batteries to wrap with the present. A set of rechargeable batteries plus charger would be even more eco-friendly and practical.

Both Spider-Man toys were a hit with my three-year old and he has been having a great time playing with them.  I recommend you add them to your holiday shopping list if you know any little Spider-Man fans that would enjoy them.
