SPELL as many WORDS as you can (as quickly as you can) with the letters available to help your racer win the race. The more letters you use to spell each word, the faster you will move. Longer words = more power! Spell 4 words in a row correctly, and you’ll get an extra POWER BOOST. The winner is the first racer to cross the finish line.


FAST FAIRIES: Which fairy will race for you? Pearl Petal, Rosy Red Socks, Spring Sparkle or Lucky Star?
HOT CARS: Will you be Blue Blazer, Golden Glow, Red Rocket or Pink Power?
FAIRY TALE DASH: Choose from Little Red Riding Hood (My what a fast car she has!), Pinocchio (Will he win by a nose?), Goldilocks (Will it be 'Just right!' for her?) or The Gingerbread Man (Crumbs! He's fast!)

TWO LEVELS to play:

Easy = It’s a bit slower and perfect for younger players or non-native speakers of English
Hard = Great for players who can spell quicker and make longer words. Much faster too!
