I perched this car for my daughter who is 2. She loves it. It's really fun for her and I can drive her around. I have also had my niece who is 10 months in it and she loved it also. The reasons I gave it a four star is because it is very jerky and if I use the RC to drive my daughter around she can still steer the car and because of her age she drives into things if I don't stop the car completely. Overall it's a great purchase for a younger child.
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!
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.
Beep-beep; watch out for the traffic jam in the hallway. Give your child a kids electric car and let them head out on the open road, or sidewalk. Made to look like real cars, they provide endless hours of enjoyment for children. Choose a car that mimics the one you drive, like a Mercedes, Ford F-150, or Chevy Camaro. Available in a variety of colors, you can choose your child's favorite. Make sure to buy an extra battery, so you can always have one charged and ready to go. The 12V batteries easily plug in and switch out to get the car going. Work on our own car in the garage, and listen to your child giggle as they power down the driveway in their own car. With two seats, they can give siblings or friends a ride. Many children long to be just like mommy and daddy, and a kids electric car lets them do just that. Search the large inventory of cars on eBay to find the one that is right for your child. Let them take the ride of their lives.

Road Rules – even though your kids won’t be driving their toys with full-size cars on the road, they can still be taught how to drive toys properly and obey the law when they’re driving their toys. You can ensure they keep to one side of the road when they drive along. You can also take them to an open space and tell them that when they’re in the appropriate setting they can let loose and roll wherever they want to. If the kids crash into things or other people by mistake – or even on purpose, because we know those types of children are out there – you should explain to them how they have hurt someone or broken property that doesn’t belong to them. That being said, we obviously don’t mean that you should be authoritarian about it, but you can ensure they are aware of their actions even while making an amusing comment.
So while my kids & I have a blast with it, I still have mixed feelings because we so rarely use it. And they don't really ask for it either. It's a pain to pull out, a pain to store it, and a pain to keep charged up. I have an oversized lot (huge yard, fairly flat), yet it's not even enough, and it's frustrating for everyone as the Jeep gets stuck on a stick or a clump of grass. We have a blast taking it to the neighborhood playground, but loading it up is a chore (I have to take the rear seat out of the minivan in order to transport it). I have a feeling for many people, this is like the exercise machines that get used once or twice then get forgotten.
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.
When we received our driver’s license, it was the most joyous moment in our lives. It signalled our abilities and our sense of independence. The same is true with children as they drive their electric ATVs, supercars, jeeps, and trucks around the neighborhood or in the park. This helps build their sense of independence which can help boost their self-confidence. This then translates into better self-esteem. The kid’s sense of self-worth is thus, enhanced giving rise to the formation of a healthier self-concept.
Updated to look just like the latest Jeep Wrangler, with distinctive grille, roll bars, and rugged front & back fenders, this Power Wheels vehicle will take little ones and their imaginations for a fun, exciting ride every time. Hard surfaces, wet grass and rough terrain are no match for the Jeep Wrangler’s two speeds (2.5 mph and 5 mph) and wide tread tires. And with its larger cockpit area, there’s more room for the driver and even a friend to come along for the ride! (Maximum 130 lbs.)
