The unrivalled cool factor to this Fisher Price buggy will be the deciding one when your toddler shows it off to their friends. It has a darker, striking look that has a bad boy feel to it, but it still has all of the great functions that other models come with. There is a speed lock for high-speed use (so that your child can’t travel faster than your preferred speed) that will keep them safe if they are beginners.
Packed with features, the Smart Wheels Battery operated 12V Range Rover ride-on toy car for kids comes with a multi-functioning steering wheel, MP3 socket with an adjustable volume and rubber wheels! As if all those incredible gizmos weren't enough, parents can rest assured that they can always override the manual controls when they switch this kids toy to remote.
After comparing a half dozen of these motorized ride-on toys, we discovered they are VERY similar, the main differences being the style (truck, car, tractor, etc). For example, I have complaints about the quality of this Fisher Price Jeep, but in fact it's higher quality than some of the other units we compared (even more expensive ones). So a lot of these comments apply equally to all Fisher Price motorized toys (and even some other brands as well):

It also features 4 large fully-knobbed pneumatic tires as well as rear suspension that intelligently follows any terrain. The classic bucket seat of old is also a mainstay in this particular ride-on toy complete with safety shoulder and lap harness to keep your child in his or her seat. Acceleration is controlled by a thumb-triggered device opposite a hand-operated disc brake located to the rear of the Dune Buggy; pretty much what you would expect from a classic bicycle setup. Storage is a breeze as the Buggy can be flipped on its rear end to allow for instant vertical or standing storage. Its tubular steel frame construction simply means the Dune Buggy can take anything thrown at its way. It can support children and some adults whose weight don’t exceed 120 pounds.
Toddlers that seem to take an interest in riding toys, especially trains, will be thrilled with this wonderfully cute Thomas Train Set that can be used on or off the included track. The track is 18 feet long that runs in a continuous circle for endless hours of riding fun. It is easy to put together and take apart for moving and storing. The train can go up to one mile per hour on the track and up to two miles per hour off of the track. Once toddlers learn the skills of steering their train, then they can ride off of the track and go almost anywhere they want. Kids as young as one year old can learn how to ride Thomas safely as they build their motor skills and balance talents on the track. The ride uses a six volt battery that is included, but for the sounds a AA battery is needed. Sounds and verbal phrases come from the little yellow whistle when it is pressed. Operation of the vehicle is by a push button which kids learn how to use quickly. They can stop and go easily by manipulating this device. For hours of indoor driving play, Thomas the Train will entertain your toddler happily.

There is also the issue of warranty. This is also an important consideration. Every miniature car that you purchase must come with a warranty. After all, they are going to cost you upwards of $200 and in some cases, up to $1,000. You also need to look at the reliability of these kids toys before purchasing. How long will the kids vehicle last, especially when it will be driven on the lawn and other mild off-road conditions around the home.
* TURNING RADIUS ... isn't great, probably 6-8 feet. You really need a lot of flat space to use this. And this is heavy & bulky to take to the park or something like that. You could throw it in a pickup truck fairly easily, but it's too bulky to transport easily in a minivan, crossover, or sedan. If you don't have a big flat yard, or a school/park right next door, think twice.
