[Amazon Canada] Anki Overdrive: Fast and Furious Edition - $39.99

Hot price on Anki Overdrive set. These came out 4 years ago (this edition 2 years ago) but the tech still holds up and if you have space it would be a fun XMAS gift for the kids.

Modern day RC track cars.

FYI: Chapters Indigo charges $240 for this product.

Looks good to me! Picked one up for my nephew for Xmas. He loves hot wheels so I’m sure he’ll love this.

Great deal, thanks!

I wonder if Amazon is severely overstocked with this item, seeing how they've had it for $3x.xx multiple times before and they're still not sold out.

Hah - i had just bought 2 of them at $49.99 - amazon wont adjust the price for me, but they will let me return them for free and buy 2 more at $39.99. Dumb.

Could this be related to the company (Anker for toys) closing down earlier this year?

The return will likely cost you, too. Free returns are limited to jewellery, clothing, and broken things. Return for no reason? It'll cost you. They took I think just under $20 from the purchase price to cover the return ship the only time I ever done it.

IMO it was unique and fun but the nostalgia wore off quickly. You have to spend more money to build bigger tracks and only if you have the space (like your whole living-room) to build it otherwise you will be bored with the tracks it comes with as two vehicles go head-to-head in circles the whole time. You need a smart phone/device to download the Anki Overdrive app in order to control the vehicles and the challenges are pretty mediocre.

We sold ours last year for $50 (got back pretty much what we paid after taxes from Amazon.ca) on craigslist as "like new" because it was barely played (2 times). Anyway, for parents with kids under 10 then buy it if you think they will love it but don't buy it if you think it has some cool factor.

Got one last year and the novelty wore off super quick in my house. Actually found it this weekend and we will be donating it somewhere.

careful guys, someone in one the reviews stated that since the company has gone bankrupt you can no longer make an account for the app.

edit. seems it's working for people

Looks like you may be right. Here’s what happened when I clicked on Create Account.
Oh boy!
I just ordered two as family has had slot car tracks set up and thought it would be a decent upgrade from basic straight driving with more variables.
Guess I may have to return

I was able to create an account through the app just now without issue.

When two tracks are attached together, only one start track can be used. If you're doing that you'll have a foot less, not a biggy but something to keep in mind. My 8 year old doesn't play with it much but my 5 year old loves it.
