We had to consider the developmental appropriateness of the electric vehicle especially when taken in the light of the recommended age. We also had to look at safety and stability issues especially the battery charging mechanisms. We then looked at what other consumers are saying about the products so we are sure these are the very same toys you would give to someone you love. Then, we had to look at the company’s credibility and whether it is observing good manufacturing practices or not.
Some of the features that you will appreciate in this miniature power Cadillac include the two seats, well functioning doors that will open and close, a battery charge indicator as well as a chrome grill and chrome wheels.These power wheels have that signature Cadillac Escalade styling that is instantly recognizable. The Barbie design of the cars adds to their unique look and elegance.
The fully functional entertainment system is one of the most comprehensive we’ve ever seen, including an MP3 and MP4 player linked to a color LCD screen. This can keep your child entertained whenever they’re bored, and they don’t even have to go for a drive. They can sit in their car and jam out to music or watch a movie – it really will become their favorite place to be.
More importantly, however, is these playthings’ ability to encourage role-playing and pretend play among children. This can have a significant impact in their cognitive development especially in terms of problem solving, spatial reasoning, and understanding of cause and effect relationships. These can lay the foundation for more complex thinking and reasoning skills such as critical thinking, creative thinking, counterfactual reasoning, and divergent thinking. For example, when given a particular terrain to navigate through, their brains are processing a lot of information to help them decide which path to take or whether to run over the obstacle or not. They are also processing the possible consequences of every action that they decide to take. Thus, these kids ride-on cars help children develop their ability to predict based on their understanding of cause and effect relationships.
The car is cute and has fun music and we enjoyed the settings to make the car remote or manually controlled. Really had no problems until recently when our car just randomly stopped holding a charge and would no longer drive. It’s been less than a year with minimal use and always stored indoors. Tried contacting the selling for help troubleshooting or to get a replacement part and they said they don’t do either of those things and since it’s been over 60 days we are out of luck unless we want to buy a brand new car. Would have hoped they would try to be more help. Disappointing for a toy this expensive to work less than a year.
Besides its brilliant resemblance to the real Mercedes CLA45, this electric toy car has a 2.4 Ghz long range parental remote control with the oh-so-very-smart stop functionality for when small tiger takes a wrong turn. Included for the drivers pleasure is a fully functional MP3 player with inputs from SD micro cards, iPhone and iPod alike. This electric car for kids has it all!
As a role-play and social play item, the Ground Force Tractor toy will give your children so much more than a quick spin around the block. They can actually help you out in the garden, pretend that they are farming or working on their own. Four wheel drive is also a rarity with ride-on cars, so this is a key function that we think sets the Ground Force Tractor apart from all the rest. It isn’t designed to ensure your tot looks cool, which is great for those parents who want to get away from the commercial side of these toys.
A great and awesome "toy" to have for my daughter! My daughter is like a celebrity riding this at the mall! My only problem is that 2nd gear speed is quite dangerously speedy! My little one will be hitting her head to the steering wheel and dangerously stop like she gonna break her neck (and might get a whiplash or something) because it abruptly stops! They should have made this to change slowly like from slow-medium-going fast if use the 2nd gear selection.... Other than that its a cool thing but be careful using this! I also love the fact that it is remote controlled and/or can be manually driven by my daughter when she is old enough. It may be a little pricey but I tell you, it pays off in the long run. This is something that my daughter can use until her pre-teen! I would definitely recommend this as a birthday girt to my friend's little girls! They will have a blast!

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.

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.
