Magic Tracks is magic! The track is easily assembled. My nine year old found the box, and he took it upon himself to assemble the tracks. My three year old is so in love with the car, and chases it around the track. Because the track is so flexible, both boys are constantly adding curves and changing the shape, as the car races around and around. While I have yet to get the tracks to glow, this does not reduce my enthusiasm for this product. My boys don't play in the dark anyway. Many toys don't hold my boys' interest for long. This one is does.
