We used a "cover story" to explain the unusual appearance of the wheels, which appeared not to have spokes at all. We concocted a fiction about "disc" wheels and some imaginary advantage in reduction of wind resistance. Everybody fell for it! Actually, the covers degraded performance, particularly in cross winds, but they were necessary for security reasons at the time.
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.
This jeep is great. Took a few hours to put together by myself but I was a bit distracted by the tv so I think it could've gone more quickly had I applied myself. My son loves it but the best part is that I fall just under the weight restrictions so after all those years as a child of wanting one of these, I can finally FINALLY live my dream and drive it around myself. LOVE IT!
The vehicle comes with a 12-volt battery that has to be charged before the medium is driveninto the rugged outdoors. However, unlike the power wheels that can be charged in 45 minutes, charging the Ford F-150 power wheels can take as much as a full day so it is important to make advance early preparations when you are planning to have your kid drive the vehicle for a reasonable amount of time.
