  • Summary: [Downloadable Game] Toy Home is an exciting toy car racing game where your house becomes the racetrack. Weave between other toys strewn across a bedroom floor, hurtle across kitchen tables, dodge toy soldiers and zoom along model railway tracks in moonlit playrooms. The aim of the game is to collect coins, discover hidden medals and hit every checkpoint before the time runs out – and there are bonus points available for every jump, smash and flip you make. Toy Home is manic, miniature racing fun! Miniature Racing Action - 4 racing modes, including split-screen offline multiplayer and online battle modes, and 8 unique courses. SIXAXIS Wireless controller - Tilt the controller left or right to steer, perform back flips in the air, or master cornering. Global Online Ranking - Play for your personal best in Ranking Mode and challenge the high scores on the online leaderboard. [SCEA] Expand

  1. It's got charm to spare and - if you don't mind wrestling with controls that occasionally leave you gritting your teeth - this is a groovy little romp.
  2. Downloadable fun at its finest. [Feb 2008, p.98]

    Sure, Toy Home is pretty at times, has a nice leaderboard option and is fun to tear through, but you'll have seen all the eight courses have to offer after your first run.
  4. It’s cheap, plays well and is a nice little time waster. Unfortunately, it's a forgettable experience that will only occupy you for a few hours.
  5. Toy Home is a simple and occasionally fun game, at least for the short period it takes to become frustrated with the controls and the lack of substance.
  6. The Sixaxis presents both a problem and joy for Toy Home. On one hand it’s a hindrance as you’ll never go in a straight line. On the other, successfully boosting and drifting around corners is great fun. [Feb 2008, p.135]

    Horribly frustrating and stressful to play. [Issue#162, p.92]

    Underappreciated little gem of a game. Yes the SIXAXIS controls take some effort to get used to, but considering the great interactivity with the environment in the game is truly underappreciated. Add in the expansion for the game, and Japan Studios has created a game that will not get the credit it truly deserves. Expand
