* 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.
By far one of the best Power Wheels on the market and the perfect electric car for your little super hero, the Wheels Batman Dune Racer will set their imaginations alight and allow them to venture off on countless adventures in your back yard, driveway or sidewalk. Roomy enough to accommodate their side kick this is the ultimate ride-on for your little one.
So far this thing rocks! Great for the price. Works well- lights and sound are great. The remote is an awwwwesome feature, as we bought this for a 2 year old. With this price point you miss a few frills though. You manually have to switch it from automatic to remote mode, and the button to do this is in the car. It is also controlled by either all manual or all remote. When in remote mode, the child isn't in control at all (which may be good for some!). I just wish my daughter could press the gas and I could steer. However, when using he remote the child can override the steering, though it doesn't sound good when this happens (like it may break?) :/ Also, there is no battery level or charge indicator- you just have to guess and wing it. Having two speed options is great. However, the stop and go is a really jolt-y on the fast speed though. The music feature on horn is really fun. The car has an MP3 connection that works, though nowhere to place any device you'd have in there. Not an important feature to me, so no big deal. Directions were a nightmare- super vague. But all in all, it is a fantastic product for the price! I love it and really hope it lasts a long time!

I purchased this for my 2 year old for Christmas and she absolutely loves it!! The remote control works great since she hasn't learned to steer by herself. Even my 9 year old thinks it's fun to ride it, of course his knees go up to his chin but it still pulls him around. I have gotten so many compliments on it and asked where I purchased it from. I was worried that it wasn't a power wheels but this is better than any power wheels we have owned in the past
A: It is proven that our auditory functions and familiar with the world begins in-utero. From an incredibly early age, we begin to make sense of our environment through auditory senses. This helps to reinforce socio-cognitive function, as well as begin the early development of hand-eye coordination – it truly is a skill to rock-out to a tune while steering a vehicle!
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!
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.
One of the items on our list has some serious power that we only recommend for older kids, and this is the Razor MX650 Dirt Rocket Electric Motocross Bike, which can travel up to 65 miles per hour. This motocross bike is definitely best for teenagers, those who have some balance and need for speed. The dual suspension is a nice comfort aspect to this product because it will get the motocross bike much more comfortable to ride on rougher ground. Tools are included for you to work on this electric motorcycle with your tot to assemble everything correctly.
As a fast as it looks, it can only go forward at 2.5 miles per hour and 5.0 miles per hour and it can go in reverse at 2.5 miles per hour. Which is fast enough for most young kids. It has a simple and easy to operate reverse push button. There are real side mirrors on the vehicle which give it even more realistic looking along with a spacious load bed, of course by kids expectations of spacious.
The popular F-150 truck now comes in a miniature model just for toddlers. They can ride almost anywhere in this adorable truck because it has wide, tough tires that grip easily to many surface types. It works well in grass and on any hard surface, and the truck can go up to 3.5 miles per hour. Even though that seems like a high speed for toddlers, it does have a grand safety mechanism. The automatic brake system stops the truck immediately when the driver’s foot comes off of the pedal. This alone will prevent many injuries and mishaps from occurring. Kids can ride in forward or reverse with easy manipulation of the controls. By maneuvering the truck, children learn the principles of cause-and-effect quickly. Also at practice when using the vehicle are gross motor skills, self-confidence building, and balance abilities. Probably the most unique attribute of this F-150 truck is that when the hood is lifted, kids can see the pretend engine. If that is not enough to get the little ones excited, it also comes with a large truck bed for storing things, genuine-looking side view mirrors and a great windshield. This neat vehicle will last for many years because of its durable construction of hard plastic materials.
Creativity– one last aspect that must not be underestimated is the imaginative power of play time. Your kids will be making up their own stories about going on adventures to foreign lands, and helping your kids along with some props or atmosphere will be a great idea toencourage them. You can start them off on a treasure hunt that you have designed for their birthday or Christmas, and let them collect clues and trivia along the way. Joining in on this play is another idea to let your toddler act out social roles and get them ready for driving and taking on the real world.
* SPEED / GEARS ... There are actually 4 gears, controlled by a shifter in the middle: Low (2.5 mph), High (5 mph), Reverse and allegedly there's a Park (which i can't find, no matter how much I fiddle with the gear shifter). So realistically there's only 3 gears, though it ~really~ needs a brake or a park (while kids are loading/unloading, etc). It comes with a screw in the shifter to lock out high gear - remove the screw when your kids are ready for more speed.
