When my boys were little, they took the wooden board bases off their beds and colored all over them, making roads for their cars, coloring in trees and buildings.

No, I didn't give them permission, they did it while I thought they were sleeping.

All these years later, they are a conversation piece - we use the boards to make a bigger table at Thanksgiving.

So when I saw this road tape, I was reminded of that - and how much the boys would have loved this tape - especially my middle son - who lived for tape!!

He would literally dance around the room if given tape as a gift!

However, knowing my boys, I would have ended up with road tape on every surface of the house!

Now your little one can drive anywhere.
• Adhesive tape road sticks to walls, floor, table - take it anywhere to keep the kids entertained.
• Leaves no residue, tears easy. No sharp scissors needed.
• Simple to use just unroll play road tape, stick to any flat surface, and let your kid’s imagination drive!
• Three rolls tape track (1.9"X197")
• One roll warning tape (0.59X394")
• One roll park tape (3"X118")
• Four curves track
• One set Traffic signs

NOTE: Some black road tape is printed on standard packaging tape and will leave ink and adhesive residue behind if adhered to a floor, table or tile even for a short period of time.

If using the Dashed-Line Road pattern for Matchbox cars or LEGO cars on a surface you want to later remove it from, please test it out first on an inconspicuous part of the surface and leave it on a few days to make sure you can remove it with adhesive cleaner and a strong bristle brush first as desired.



Of course, you could always just buy regular duct tape at the Dollar Store, and simply add in the road markings with a marker and add in your own Hot Wheels cars.
