I had something like this when I was a kid and used to bring it to school and run massive gambling sessions with nickles dimes and quarters during recess. I never remembered where I got it from. I think the back of some comic book. They don't MAKE toys like this anymore because companies are so scared the small parts will kill and choke some dumb kids.

ANSWER: DON'T EAT THE LITTLE HORSES!

THIS IS FUN!

6 horses of different colors, and a pretty much random output of winner. I have read some complaints that certain lanes always come in first etc but most likely the problem is you are not playing the game on a perfectly LEVEL surface. Get a leveler if you are that anal, and switch horses and lanes every game.

Get some friends together with a few drinks and PLACE YOUR BETS and watch how a $10 toy makes people go ape sh&^#!

5 stars! Fun and absolutely worth it! I love toys. Check out my video review!

This game is quick fun, turn it on, pick your winner, and let the race begin. You have to watch the video on you tube of the review of this product. The guy comes up with names and does the old time annoucer voice while reviewing it. (Very funny) I can't use mine now with out doing the voice. If there is someting bad to say about this it would be every now and then one of the horses will fall over during the race. They tend to get a little bouncey and the end of the track. Some people say they get the same winner every time, I always get a different winner. one secret is keep the gate down, turn on the machine, let the horses get to the gate, wait alittle then raise the gate ( in my opion that shuffles the horses up).

Notice lane 6 never got 1st place. Also, there is a statistical effect for LANE but not for HORSE.

I had this game as a kid only the horses were made of metal and these are plastic. Overall the game still works the same unfortunately mine has a lane that is much slower than the other 5. It's a fun game to play with. I find many of my friends playing randomly when they come over.

This is a fun little game that I purchased for my six year old granddaughter for Christmas this year. Everybody had fun with it. The same horses don't win over and over again. The whole family took turns calling the race and everybody chose a horse to be the winner. After the adults went on to other things, the little kids, age 3 to 6, played and never got bored with it. I have a feeling it will be traveling with my granddaughter when she visits friends and family.

I had one of these when I was younger and it worked so much better. Horses actually just fell down. Others didn't move. Only 2 or 3 horses made it to the end of the race. Kids still had fun playing with it, but we could not all play together with only a few horses running down to the end.

This game is simple and addicting. You place 6 plastic horses on a track and hit go. The track shakes and shimmies as the horses inch forward. That's it. Yet the fun comes in how big of a deal you make this little game. The best part is giving a commentary on the race as people cheer for their horse. Perfect for betting quarters.

The only negative I can find is that sometimes it seams one of the tracks is consistently slower than the others. I haven't judged it over a long period. but it seems that makes it not quite random for some poor individual.

I would not give this as a primary or solo present (e.g. birthday), but as a stocking stuffer or for adding some variety when stocking a game room it's a fun item that will garner its share of attention.

Of course, as soon as the battery is dead or the small pieces are lost it's a doorstop. Battery is curable. Lost pieces, less so.
