The Jeep comes in a large box and requires assembly. I had no issues when constructing the item apart from some of the sticker had been placed on wonky as they are pre done, but this was easily corrected. You are required to put the wheels on, steering + steering wheel, Motors on the back wheels, and a few parts like the dash and back light set. At the start it was a bit overwhelming to how much assembly there was but it was no more difficult than a small flat pack piece of furniture.
The pink thankfully in my mind is softer than on the picture and not so in your face, and in my opinion is much nicer than I was expecting.
The Jeep is charged from the back using the supplied adapter and requires no more than a removal of a plastic cap. So no unscrewing or removing of batteries, simply plug and charge.
The lights at the front only work when the Jeep is moving and can not be manually operated. The lights on the back roll bar are powered separably by 3 AA batteries and has a very annoying police siren. These are operated by a button under the lights and i find this more of an after thought as it requires the child to turn around to operate. The steering wheel also requires 2 AA batteries and features a horn and some musical melodies.
The Jeep comes with several rocker type buttons for forwards and backwards, on / off, and a button for how the car is controlled, either by the child with the foot pedal or the supplied remote control. I find the placement of the button for who controls the car to be a poor choice as its within easy reach of the child and probably something a younger child would play with along with the other buttons. The Remote control works fine although it is very cheap, poorly made and I cant see it lasting very long but its not something i will be using anyhow. Another reviewer commented on how the wheels don't auto correct back to a forward facing position. I don't find this a problem as if you have ever driven an actual car they also don't and just means you turn the opposite direction and stop when they are pointing forward.
I think the MP3 part is slightly misleading as its actually just a speaker you can plug anything that plays music via a 3.5mm audio jack, but was more than i expected anyhow, and does work surprisingly well.
To sum up I am more than happy with this purchase, I found the price to be more than reasonable for the quality of the item as it feels very sturdy and is made out of strong plastic. The wheels unfortunately are fully plastic and would probably of benefit from a small band of rubber to offer extra grip but i cant see this being too much of an issue as its 12 Volts so offers double the power of a 6 volt ride on.
I built the car and set it to charge, it did not work - I contacted the seller who advised that this often happens (look at the reviews elsewhere) and promised a new car in time for Christmas Day and a collection of the old one - neither happened.
Christmas Eve I am phoning frantically - no response, they are closed for a week over Christmas... What!!!
Consequently they have now collected their car, not delivered a new one - who would want one.. and have done nothing more to offer me £5 off if I decide to buy another one for my sons birthday in May.
What a great Christmas I had running around to resolve this mess as well as trying to hide a big item with a household of kids - really disappointed .. things can go wrong but over promising and under delivering is unforgivable and then the insult of a £5 discount.. what on earth.
apart from that, the battery is powerful enough to take the jeep over a hill.and with one full charge, it can run for almost an hour.
remort control works fine but child can override the option by changing the mode from manual to pedal.
mp3 slot did not work on my jeep but i didnt bother contacting the seller for it as we dont use it anyway.
Rc is very responsive bit hard setting off but lasts for around 20 mins . Funky music lights not for the young faint hearted kids.
