My Little One is not an avid skateboarder by any means, but she has a few boards that she will try and use once and awhile. She actually has one really awesome board because her big step-brother was an avid skateboarder at one time. It is always nice to get hand me downs especially when they are cool. 🙂
Although my Little One is not a skateboarder, she really enjoyed putting the Tony Hawk Circuit Boards by HEXBUG – Power Axle Set to the test.
Unleash your inner pro skater with HEXBUG’s new line of Tony Hawk Circuit Boards! The Power Axle Set includes two Tony Hawk authentic decks, one removable power axle with remote control, plus, trucks, wheels and a mini screwdriver for you to customize your ride.
Choose between two ways to play: traditional fingerboard style or slap on the power axle and take off with the I/R remote control, turning on the turbo boost for accelerated ramp action! To power on, roll the board forward and start shredding. To power off, roll the board in reverse.

The Tony Hawk Circuit Boards by HEXBUG – Power Axle Set comes with two decks and you can decide which one you want to make the powered one. The set includes a mini screwdriver to put the deck and power pack together.
The screws in the set are absolutely tiny and so is the screwdriver. Little Hands undoubtedly will find it difficult to build the skateboard because of how tiny the screws are and how hard it is to screw the power pack on with such tiny screws. I ended up being the one in our house that built the powered skateboard, but of course, my Little One chose which board would be the finger board and which would be the powered board.
Once together, you just roll the powered board forward and it is turned on and ready to be controlled with the remote control. It is quite fun to play with and we all had to wait patiently for our turn.
We all find the powered board a lot more fun than the traditional finger board. Something about remote controlled items just make it so much more challenging and fun.
There are a number of different Tony Hawk Circuit Board sets and some of them come with ramps and rails so you can build your very own skate park. We do not have any of the ramps or rails so we had to use our thinking caps and create objects and obstacles out of items around the house which of course just added to the fun.
I always find with remote controlled items that it takes a little time to get used to how to control it, and the Tony Hawk Circuit Board set is no exception. Once you get the hang of controlling the powered skateboard it is a lot of fun.
Tony Hawk Circuit Boards by HEXBUG – Power Axle Set is recommended for ages 8 and up. I find that age ranking a bit surprising as I would have thought a younger one such as 6 and up would enjoy the set. The 8 year old age ranking might be attributed to how hard it is to build the set with the tiny screws and screwdriver. Having said that, even at 8 I think the set is hard to build as it was for my 8 year old. It was difficult for me to get those tiny screws in with the tiny screwdriver. Once together though, I think kids ages 6 and up would enjoy these sets. There are tiny parts so the sets are definitely not for young ones as there are a ton of choking hazard pieces.
If you have an avid skateboarder in your house or a little one that loves remote controlled items, then I recommend that you check out the Tony Hawk Circuit Board products.
