Rated 3 out of 5 by Battery cover broke first time we opened it Christmas day we opened the battery cover and one of the cover clips broke right off. We weren't muscling it, it just snapped. We also discovered the car and remote control that requires both a 9volt and two AA batteries so we had to go get a 9Volt the day after Christmas (our mistake). When we opened the battery cover the second time to install the 9volt, the second cover clip snapped right off. Again, we were not muscling it, just turning it in the direction you are suppose to turn it. We are guessing they used an electrical phillips to tighten the clip screws at the factory and they were overtightened at the shop. My son rubberbanded the cover in place and the car was quite fun but the hassle with the battery cover clips makes this a bad purchase for the price we paid before Christmas. We plan to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Disappointed This was an xmas gift for my daughter but when opened xmas morning was very disappointed that she couldn't use it because it was broken. Bought in store, box was sealed, foam packaging intact, but battery compartment on car was missing coils for battery connection. This should have been caught by inspection before packaging. Out of stock at store had to wait a week after ordering online. What kid wants to wait a week to try out a gift? December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this toy! My grandchildren both received one this year and they absolutely enjoy playing with them. They are safe to play inside and outside. The toys are easy to control for even a 2 year old (with adult supervision, of course!). I like that the control is made with safety in mind and without the dangerous extending antennae. I also like that the radio frequencies do not clash when both toys are in operation. Great fun for all ages!! December 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by broke really fast A whole wheel broke off within 5 minutes of basic use. Didn't drop, fall, or get used incorrectly. Super disappointed little boy on Christmas day :( They are sold out locally in all 3 stores so no replacement is possible either December 26, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great toy, easy to work Great toy and easy to work via remote control, everyone played with the two we purchased- ages six to 56 years old. Great fun for both girls and boys. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Low price for a great gift. My grandkids have not gotten these yet for Christmas but they had a set of these a few years back and wore them out. They can play inside on a cold rainy day or outside when the sun is shining. At least they are off the games. December 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broke within 10 minutes of use My son received this from Santa. He was super excited and couldn't wait to play with it! However, it broke within 10 minutes of play and he was heartbroken. December 26, 2015
