Carrera tracks can bring a lot of joy to your child, as they can, for example, compete with small vehicles against their friends or you in a race.

- Analog models are kept quite simple and can already be used by young children.
- Digital racetracks offer much more features such as the ability to customize your car and overtake others.
- Due to their numerous features, digital tracks are more vulnerable and should not be given to children who are too young.
- “Carrera First” tracks are analog and suitable for children as young as 3 years old. They are slightly less complex and easier to set up than most of Carrera’s other models.
- Children under 3 years of age should not be given a Carrera track to play with because of small parts that can be swallowed. Furthermore, there is a risk that they will accidentally break the cars and tracks due to too rough handling.
- The racing tracks in the “Carrera-Go” and “Carrera Evolution” series are also analog. They offer 2 cars the opportunity to compete against each other in a race. Such models are recommended for children aged 6 and 8 respectively.
- Digital race tracks are suitable for ages 10 and up. Here you can, for example, adjust the speed, various lights on the car, and the braking behavior individually. You can also let your cars drive on their own in autonomous mode. Digital models can also be fun for adults.
- Models from Carrera are usually built in 1:43, 1:32 or 1:24 scale.
- Tracks in 1:43 scale are the smallest. They are ideal especially for smaller children. The available models offer, for example, loops and jumps.
- If you already have somewhat larger and more demanding children, then choose a track in 1:32 scale. This is the standard sizeperfectly suitedfor beginners. Here, too, you can count on many features, especially in the digital version.
- If you choose the 1:24 scale, you will have the largest cars currently available at home.
- Make sure you have enough space in your home for a Carrera track.
- A good Carrera track should have between 5 and 7.3 meters of racing track for optimal playing enjoyment.
