My 2 year old absolutely loves this!
on 6 January 2012
This was bought for my 2 year old daughter for Christmas by her grandparents (however not off Amazon but it is the exact same model and car in pink). They really wanted to buy her one of these electric cars but I was abit dubious about it whether she was too young and about size/quality...but its absolutely great she loves it. We bought this from the internet without having seen it soI was abit worried what it would be like when it arrived but after shopping around our local shops it was alot better than the other cars around and in the same price range. It took over an hour to put together with 2people doing it but I think that's roughly the same for all the kids cars and it didn't seem very stressful. When it was put together it looks great, much better than the other cars I have seen like the Audi and Barbie jeep, the chrome details make it look really good quality and expensive. There are 3 buttons down the side an on/off for the mp3 player which you can just put the cable in your Iphone and music plays from the car,another button in the middle for forward/stop and back which controls whch direction it does when it is being powered by the child and the top button to control whether it is controlled by the remote/pedal. We havent used the car outside yet just in the house(as we have quite abig living room), the batteries lasted from Christmas day to 6th January so now got it on charge and it says it needs between 8-12 hours in the manual. We mainly control it with the remote and it didn't take long to get used to it at all. My worries were about the height of it if my daughter would be able to get in and out by herself as the doors dont open (only ever seen one that does but that didn't have very good reviews and was more expensive) but shes fine can easily get in and out by herself and fasten and unfasten the seatbelt. My only worry when we go out is that my daughter can use the steering wheel when its on remote mode but this isnt a design flaw as I think all the kids cars are like this and when she is old enough to be able to steer it accurately it will be an advantage. Hope this helps anyone who is having trouble deciding which car to get or whether to get this one,i would definitely recommend this over the other cars on the market it isnt much more expensive than the cheaper ones but alot better quality, definitely value for money!
