* TURNING RADIUS ... isn't great, probably 6-8 feet. You really need a lot of flat space to use this. And this is heavy & bulky to take to the park or something like that. You could throw it in a pickup truck fairly easily, but it's too bulky to transport easily in a minivan, crossover, or sedan. If you don't have a big flat yard, or a school/park right next door, think twice.
The Jeep Wrangler means adventure, and kids can have that same sense of adventure with this smaller, safer model of the famous vehicle. It looks just like the real thing with all of the same features. Kids can ride at two speeds of 2.5 or 5.0 miles per hour, depending on the setting that parents impose on the vehicle. As a safety measure, adults can lock the speed to the lower choice for those that need to practice their driving skills a bit more. When abilities improve or safety is no longer a concern, the speed can be unlocked for full speed freedom. Vehicles such as this one provide children with hands-on learning experience for cause-and-effect principles. They learn by doing and eventually see that the action they perform causes something to happen. This Jeep has a front seat that is large enough for two kids to sit or one kid to haul some toys. A back storage compartment can also be used for storage too. A rechargeable battery and charger are included with the purchase, so the fun never has to stop.
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!
Not just the look and the feel, we want the same quality and design of durability expected of a trusted auto manufacturer. This includes the sturdy steel-frame structure of the Dune Buggy; the all-terrain tires of the John Deere model tractor; the familiar engine roar and MP3 tunes to accompany the sporty ride that’s always turning heads in that direction!
This looks just like the real thing, only in a smaller model. Children can pretend to be law enforcers providing justice throughout the neighborhood on their own little motorcycle. Kids must balance themselves on this little motorcycle well to ride it, especially at the maximum speeds it is capable of going. Forwards, it can move at two speeds of 2.5 miles per hour or 5.0 miles per hour. That is pretty fast for a toddler’s ride. It can also go in reverse up to 2.5 miles per hour. More practice will be needed for this type of vehicle than the others we feature on this page because it does not have four wheels to support the child. It has just three wheels making it more prone to tipping over possibly. The hazard and signal lights make this so cute, plus the siren sounds ad headlights are neat too. It also has side view mirrors, back storage in the seat compartment, hand accelerator, and authentic-looking chrome detail. If your child loves pretending to be a policeman or policewoman, then this is just the perfect gift for them.
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.

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.
It also features 4 large fully-knobbed pneumatic tires as well as rear suspension that intelligently follows any terrain. The classic bucket seat of old is also a mainstay in this particular ride-on toy complete with safety shoulder and lap harness to keep your child in his or her seat. Acceleration is controlled by a thumb-triggered device opposite a hand-operated disc brake located to the rear of the Dune Buggy; pretty much what you would expect from a classic bicycle setup. Storage is a breeze as the Buggy can be flipped on its rear end to allow for instant vertical or standing storage. Its tubular steel frame construction simply means the Dune Buggy can take anything thrown at its way. It can support children and some adults whose weight don’t exceed 120 pounds.
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.
