Thanks for posting. I’ve added the price and merchant to the title and an image.
Here’s a ‘Help’ link which gives tips and advice on thread posting.

I got this from B&M stores cheaper than that before Christmas.
I thought I saw this in b&m yesterday for £20

​looks different to the bnm one?
hot , have a 9month old and pondered getting him into cars for xmas .The smyths price was a bit steep,so this can do for his first birthday
if it wasn't for my card taking so much of a beating from the sales this year I would buy this
these are not good, need batteries and the karts/cars don't go around the track as a scalextric would, took me ages get it all going as they wouldn't fit on the track properly. It's no different to the ones in B&Ms at £19.99.
Yeah deffo check out BM Bargains / Home Bargains before buying elsewhere. My local store has had these for £19.99 for about 4 months now, they are a staple item and always in stock. There are 2 versions as I recall, Toad & Mario Karts included or Luigi & Mario.

To be honest is never worth much more, its not that good a toy in my opinion. Is very boring and low play value, you just hold button down and karts go round track. Lots of faffing around with Kart brushes on bottom of kart needing fixed, and karts come off track easily. Takes up a lot of space too.

Okay for £20.00 I suppose.
This deal is for a much larger track than the b&m one. That is just a figure of 8.this one has a loop in it too.
The one at b&m has stickers on it saying exclusive to b&m so it won't be the same and from looking at the b&m one it is different because it has Mario and yoshi, this has Mario and toad.

As a parent of a 22 month old, no way is this suitable for a 9 month old at all.

B&M have items specifically made for them that are not quite the same. Cheaper parts and less stringent on quality. Their Peppa Pig stuff is almost knock off compared to other stores
This is rubbish we got our son this took it back after xmas. The carts won't stay on the track at all. Doesn't even make it round for a lap with flying off, do not buy or you will be taking it back.
My local BM Bargain does have the figure of 8 track but also the Loop the Loop larger track, which I think is maybe £24.99 or £29.99 from memory. Both are staple stock items (BM Bargains, Fort Kinnaird Retail Park, Edinburgh).

I have the large loop the loop track, and I can confirm it is rubbish, got used once or twice. Took up the whole living room. Poor play value, honestly you or the kids won't be messing about with this if you have a Wii U and Mario Kart. Better just to play the real thing. If your looking for Mario Kart related toys, better to get the KNEX Mario Kart building sets, or just some individual diecast/Pullback Mario Kart racer cars.

Mine works fine. You can't just go at full speed around the corners. Even my 5 year old has mastered that...

Nope, nothing like that. It's bog standard Scaletrix track and the 2 character cars. Is so generic like the Spiderman one, nice box packaging and a character car is all.

The KNEX motorised Mario Kart building sets are way better. Hard to find admittedly, but if you google/ebay them you will see they come with loads of accessories from shells, bananas, blooper, bullet bill, stars and so on. Loads of characters and character themed sets available like from memory:

Donkey Kong Beach
Rosalinas Ice World
Bowsers Castle
Yoshi Lava Plumes
Toad & Crabs
Wario Ice Pengiun Set

You get cool things like moving Lava, moving Chomp Chomps, Pirahanna Plants.

Just way better. Not perfect, and not a fan of KNEX, but if you want some Mario Kart based toys thats where to look I reckon.

Loads of other videos available on YouTube. Seriously recommend people avoid the Carrera rubbish.
PS to the OP, its nothing personal.
