Make sure that you do not let older kids or adults ‘try out’ the electric car or dune buggies, because it is likely that they will damage or even break the dune buggies chassis. This is will cause some stress to your kids so we recommend taking a look at a fidget spinner to calm them down if they get into this situation. Set clear boundaries with family and friends that this is best for younger, lighter people, and that you’ve spent quite a bit of time and money putting it together with your child. You really don’t want to have to explain to your kids why the wheels of their favorite popped out from underneath Uncle Joey’s seat!

It’s a go-kart, which in this day and age a truly retro-way to get around. It has a seat belt, which some of the larger models do not have because they have large side doors and a windshield. The open top will make the experience of driving more enjoyable, and will bring your child closer to the road in their travels. A 45 minute battery life makes this model great for an outing to a nice wide parking lot.
Driving Skills – After the excitement of driving anywhere and everywhere has worn off a bit, you can change the play time up a bit and teach the kids some real driving skills. If you take them to a big parking lot, you can set up a course of cones for them to roll along, and teach your kids how to check their toy for damage, when to stop the toy at a stop-sign, how to park the toy, how to go around a circle, and more. This will introduce the more difficult parts of driving that they will have to deal with later on for their real-life driving test one day. They might protest at first, but if you treat it as a challenge with a reward at the end like an ice-cream or a packet of chips you can be sure they’ll be into it almost at once.
Battery lasts at least 4 hours (when new). The battery life will shorten over time, best case scenario it will last you a couple years. The instructions say it takes 18 hours to charge, but there is no light indicator, so the only way to know if's full is to check with a battery tester or multimeter. Do not overcharge the battery (i.e., don't leave it plugged in for days at a time) - this AC adapter/charger is not a trickle charger and could fry your battery to overcharge.

The kid’s vehicle should also be able to smoothly simulate the driving experience of the grown-up vehicles. Another important feature to look out for when you are buying one of these is the how they are run. These vehicles are generally powered by electric batteries and as a result, the issue of battery life comes into play. The size of the motor as well as the strength will have a direct impact on the speed at which your tot will be able to control the motorized vehicle for kids. Size is generally an indicator of the battery life for the electric cars for kids. Batteries with higher voltage can support higher speeds.

* SHIPPING ... Comes in HUGE heavy box. The box was undamaged, but the left motor broke off in transit, and cracked the frame. I decided to repair it myself instead of waiting for replacement parts (or trying to cram it back in the box), & noticed a design flaw - the rear electric motors (rear wheel drive, each wheel has its own motor) are not attached well at all, I believe there's a good chance they will eventually break off. My suggestion, while assembling it, drill a few extra screws into the frame for extra support.
