Light 'em up, Roary!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roary the Racing Car - Remote Control Roary (Toy)
My son and I have had great fun with this toy over the past couple of months, and still do -- best Christmas present I ever bought!
It is speedy, tough, and faithful to the TV character. Admittedly traction is better on carpet than laminate, but I found it very easy to control, and had no problems with the turning circle. No, it won't turn on a dime, so you do have to practice some 3-point turns, but well, there's your educational element: spacial awareness, hand/eye co-ordination, etc. - good practice for when the kids are 17!
If responsiveness, or range of remote IR signal decreases, just replace the batteries in the car (not necessarily the remote), and all should be well again. I've also found that sunlight can interfere with the remote IR signal when the car travels into direct sunlight at a distance - just move closer to it.
All in all, a superb toy. If I had had one as a kid, I would have been well chuffed. I just wish they would bring out another remote control character, e.g. Maxi, so you could have races!
