Safety first – as a parent you can take over the steering and acceleration of the car if your child loses control. This is a fail-safe that all moms and dads will come to love! The MP3 socket is a great feature to let your child drive around the neighborhood sidewalks while singing along to their favorite tunes. The large wheels on the Range Rover ride-on are also great in case of driving over obstacles or stones, because it will easily be able to overcome a bit of a rough terrain.
Power Wheels Desert Drifters are the Power Wheels you coveted as a child, but all done up Mad Max-style - complete with spikes, spears, and other automatic weapons (of the foam dart variety). Your kids can pretend to be rogue gangs, by-the-book or disillusioned MFP officers, or just regular folks trying desperately to survive in a dystopian version of the future Land Down Under. These Power Wheels Desert Drifters have a top forward speed of 7.5 mph and can take quite a lot of hits (and driving) before needing a battery recharge. That's right, with Power Wheels Desert Drifters, your kids won't be fighting over gasoline - they'll be fighting over the extension cord. Just make sure they understand who runs Bartertown. YOU run Bartertown!
* 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.
* 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).

The vehicle has a real FM stereo system rather than a pretend FM radio that you would normally find in other power wheels. It is powered by a 12-volt battery and has two forward speeds of 2.5 miles per hour and 5.0 miles per hour. There are protection features such as a Power Lock Brake System as well as a high speed lock out that is essential for the beginners.
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.
* WEIGHT ... It's heavy, about 55 pounds. You have to lift it, it's very difficult for an adult to "drive" it. We have stairs to our front porch, which makes this really difficult to move & store. And it's longer & taller than necessary (the front bumper & the roll bars add several inches to the dimensions), and there's no handles, no good place to lift it. If you try lifting it by the roll bars, they will break.
Kawasaki is a well-known brand when it comes to motorcycles. In fact, it is one of the preferred brands for motocrossers and daredevils. Of course, this is not the only reason why you should consider giving your child the Kawasaki KFX from the Power Wheels toy division of Fisher-Price. With a very rugged all-terrain vehicle look, this is one of the best kids electric cars you can ever give as a gift.
Another factor we took into account is the authenticity of the product. We want to remain culturally relevant, whether it is using a keyed-ignition for the design or a push-button starter, a manual or automatic stick shift. Whatever a child witnesses in their everyday life with Mom and Dad, or other adults on TV, we wanted it to reflect in our products — the look and the feel! Who wouldn’t want the authentic chrome-look of wheels on a Ford F-150 truck?
Let your parents or other know you are coming by using the real horn. The three speeds are changeable by using the remote as well. The spring suspension system allows for a smooth ride even when the car is controlled by the parent via remote control. Parents can control the direction and speed for the car. An added safety feature is the automatic breaks which kick in when the child removes their foot from the accelerator pedal.
Now heres a Jeep Wrangler for two, and sturdy enough to have two 5 year-olds exploring the garden in no time. The 12-volt battery supply does increase the drive able time considerably over 6 volt cars, and this jeep can get to 5 mph, and features a reverse mode. The styling for this miniature Jeep is quite realistic and it looks exactly like the real thing, of course minus the Disney Frozen colors along with the graphics.
Want to your kids to experience the thrill of riding an ATV right on your backyard? Here is an awesome, real life looking ATV, and suited to slightly rougher terrain than most electric cars we looked at. 12 volts of power, two speeds forwards through the realistic twist grip speed selector (gas pedal is on the floor), and a reverse mode, this option is good for many hours worth of playtime.
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.
