Pieces: in 2008, Tiny turbos include "glow in the dark" elements. And they do glow!

Building: it's obviously easy with such few pieces.

Review and rating:

Small / cheap sets always are my favs. Tiny Turbos are generally nice, adding Glow in the dark pieces is a great way to get more interest. And I guess many fans of the old faithful 4-wide vehicles are into TTs. One will hardly buy these sets for building fun alone, but their playability (and displabilty) are surely worth the money.

I told you, I like these colours, but I Like the shape also; good detailing, obviously thanks to stickers too. And, it's not difficult to find a TT 0,5 or 1 Euro cheaper than RRP.

In its category, to me it's 5/5.
