Out of The Box:
So, this was going to be a Christmas gift for my son. It still is, it's just it became an "Early" birthday present instead! However, prior to giving it to him, my husband and I took this little buggy for a spin.
For starters, it came with everything we needed to set up, which I so appreciated! I mean, I detest when I get home or Christmas morning comes and OOPS let's do the "battery scramble". So, that's a huge BONUS points for me. So, anyway, it was really simple, I popped the batteries into the charging pack and then hooked it to the Car to charge (The car has to be off in order to operate). I'd say we waited about 45 minutes before we even looked and it was fully charged and ready to go!
(It also includes a USB charger that can be used in the place of the battery pack!)
I actually created a video, but need to put it into YouTube format so that I can add it to the post.
It was really fun and had us giggling. It is also EXTREMELY fast. My husband, who has had NUMEROUS RC cars in his days, kept saying "Man, this thing is fast!" So, I'm really impressed with this!
My son's birthday is on Dec. 15, I had to actually show it to him to make sure that giving him a "Remote Control" car was appropriate ( I mean, he's 15 so who knows!!) He was really excited about this car and has been pleased with it!
Now, I personally, think this is a toy that's geared towards more of 10 and up because it is a bit small and so you wouldn't want a younger child whom may have a tendency to throw or not take care of their toys to get it and break it.
I guess, it's the speed and the tricks and stuff that this car does that makes me feel it's better suited towards older kids. I'm sure it basically depends on the child and their maturity, etc. I mean, any age child can enjoy it, but probably kids a bit older will appreciate everything this little car will do!
