Power Wheels - the only way to ride. Is your wanna-be driver looking to gain some behind-the-wheel confidence? We’ve got just the right Power Wheels vehicles—and so many new ways to ride—to empower them to hit the road! Kids at our Fisher-Price Play Lab put these vehicles to the test, so you can feel good giving your kid the thrill of independence as they drive off in in their very own ride-on car, truck or ATV. These battery-powered riding toys are built for hours of fun and endless backyard adventures for toddlers to more experienced drivers!
* ASSEMBLY ... You have to assemble *everything* - absolutely nothing comes pre-assembled. For example, see the rear roll-bar in the photo? That alone is 16 pieces to be screwed together, not including the decals. Allow 90 minutes, but my repair took another 90 minutes, making assembly time a little over 3 hours total for me (from box to complete unit).
*Guaranteed for the life of the wheel, or two weeks, whichever comes first. This guarantee shall be void if the purchaser uses tires, tubes, rim tapes or valve caps or other accessories not expressly approved for use with POWerwheels, nor will it apply to any wheels which have been subject to on-road or off-road use. Void where prohibited, prohibited where void, keep away from children and animals, use only with adequate ventilation.
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!
The KFX features a very sleek and shiny design and styling to mimic the real off-roading ATV. The handle features a throttle mechanism that can propel the KFX to a maximum of 6 MPH. For younger daredevils, Mom and Dad can limit the speed to just 3 MPH so junior will not necessarily injure himself or herself. It’s got a low profile so kids can easily get onto the comfortable seat. There are foot rests allowing this electric car for kids to drive easily and effortlessly.
Adjustable bucket seats allows for comfortable riding even as their little legs grow longer and they can take their brother or sister with them on their adventures or to help out in the garden, as it has two side by side seats. Includes a 12V rechargeable battery and battery charger. Weight capacity is 130 pounds and is suitable for kids from 3 years to 8 years of age.
* 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.
This is information is generally provided in the product details section and will depend on the specifications of the motorized ride you choose. In some of the models, the manufacturer or retailer simply states the age range of the kids who can ride the car. If the information is not provided, you can also create inquiries so that you can buy one that will be ideal for your short one.
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.
