We purchased this as a Christmas gift for our younger two children. They love them. They are still in working order after over 2 months of hard play. Our older two ride them a lot also. They are great for our boys. They are best used on smooth surfaces. It does not work on carpet. Make sure you line up the stearing. We had to take one bike apart and put it together again so that it would work.

We gave these to our kids (ages 2 and 4) as Christmas presents and they were a big hit. I do not recommend using them on hardwood floors, as they do tend to scuff them up. However, they are great for a flat, smooth surface. We took turns racing with the kids and it was a lot of fun for the family!

I bought this for my 2 year old grandson and he was able to pick up the concept quickly. Very sturdy toy and I'm sure he will get many years of pleasure from it. I know my son-in-law liked riding it and yes it will hold up to 200 pounds.

I bought 2 for my older kids (10 and 7) and they have so much fun on these. They hold a lot of weight (up to 200+ pounds). The heavier the person, the more movement you get out of it. You steer it with your arms which also moves the car faster and they keep their feet off the ground while continuing to move. The more you steer, the more you move. I use the cars as well. I am only 5'4" so I fit on perfectly but taller people can use it as well (but maybe not 6 feet and up). The Plasma Car is durable! My youngest child likes to put the dogs leash around the steering wheel and get pulled down the street super fast!....Awesome gift! Worth the money. I would buy it even if it were more expensive.

I bought this for my 2 year old nephew since his legs are too short to pedal and he wants to "ride" like his sister and brother. Turns out that not only the kids had fun with it....the adults too! It definitely held up to an adult's weight (about 130 lbs.). It was easy to put together and worked inside the house and outside too. It even brought the neighbors over to check it out. My niece even got to ride it with her arm in a sling. I guess I should have ordered more than one....it's hard to get one kid to give it up to take turns with the others!

Purchased 2 coasters for my son's 5th birthday. Description was "racecar red" and product pictured looked to be bright red. Coasters I received were more maroon. We have an exceptionally large driveway which I've always considered essentially flat. Coasters worked great going down the driveway but to get back up which is less than a 5 degree incline was a bust. Fortunately the children figured out that it might be fun to push each other back "up" but again I stress "up" is essentially flat. I guess these coasters would be ideal on a gymnasium floor or maybe a perfectly flat school parking lot.

My 2 1/2 yr. old son loves this scooter. Because he's small, he can't getting it going fast enough yet to keep up with us when we're out for a walk but he loves to just ride it around on the sidewalk. My husband and I tried it out first so we could teach him and we probably had too much fun. Occasionally, if we're lucky, our son will let us have a turn. Assembly was easy and shipping was super fast. We're happy with the purchase.

Bought the cars for two of my grandchildren, ages 2 and 4. My sons, nieces, and everyone in the house ended up riding them and loved them. I plan to buy two more for other two grandchildren. I would recommend this to anyone. Absolutely love them!

I had to try these out ah to be sure they were safe! (ordered 2) for our grandkids. Well it took 2 or 3 minutes b4 I had the dog riding all around our tile floors with me wiggling the handle gentlt side to side, making turns & having a ball. My dear husband has video to blackmail me with ! haaaaaa great safe choice, Honey put the two together in no time. The girls rode them for hours until time to go home Christmas eve. Set up a small tree in garage & left cars outside so they had lots of room to go around & round. They are ages 4 and 6

I bought two of these cars 2 years ago at a fair paying much more. My kids loved them so much I now have four. I am a daycare provider and these cars are by far a favorite. I am going to purchase more just to have a few back- ups. The only thing you need to remember is to keep them dry. They do not roll as well if the wheels get wet and start to rust. These are better than the ones you find at ***** that do not go as fast.

Upon receiving the initial order (purchased a blue & red one) and putting the ride on car together, the grandkids loved it. However, within 1 week, one of the front wheels came off. I contacted customer service for a replacement wheel, and never received one... With many follow up emails, Overstock sent out a new coaster (red one). Although the process to get a replacement took almost 3 weeks, I can definitely say that Overstock did the right thing by replacing the whole coaster. My grandkids absolutely love them, especially the 3 yr old that figured it out quickly. My 2 yr old still has a little difficulty moving the steering wheel, but I think that will come in time. After many hours of use (I would strongly encourage anyone with kids 1-4 yrs old put a bike helmet on them when riding the coaster), I think this was one of the best purchases made from Overstock to date....outside of the hassle with getting a replacement wheel, the product is solid, sturdy, and will be used until the grandkids wear it out!!!!

We gave this to our 2-year old nephew. It was easy to set up and it's stable. He loved it and promptly began riding it in our hallways. Has a fun look too.

After reading nearly all the reviews, I purchased 2 cars for 11 & 9 year old boys, the younger being autistic. It seems that I am the only one (47 yo female, 108lbs.) who really "works" the car as it was intended; both boys prefer to get huge pushes from their dad down the drive. You've got to tighten down the steering nut so that the handle doesn't detach, assembly is e-a-s-y. Don't use them on wood floors they will leave marks. A link to the manufacturer "Plasma Car" from one reviewer really gave me an indication as to their potential...a smooth expansive surface is ideal. This car for under $50 is one of the best ways to occupy an autistic child and I'm happy to recommend them to anyone with a smooth exterior surface. I hope they've won a best design award somewhere and should be recognized internationally.

This is the best toy this season for child or adult. My husband and I have raced around the house on our hardwood floors with ease. We can even fit a 4-year-old on it with us. The whole family of 4 races through the house now on the two cars we purchased. Sure, we've made a few scuff marks on the hardwood in our new house, but it was worth it just to see everyone having such a good time. You can't have this much fun at an amusement park! My husband plus son weigh about 235 pounds together, so the cars can handle far more than stated. Capable of zero radius turns, they turn around in a tight space like a hallway, too.

My kids love this toy! From my 2-year-old who pushes it with her feet to my 11-year-old who rides it downhill like a rollercoaster, this is probably the best riding toy I have ever bought and well worth the money! I've even (180 pound) rode on thist. We've had this for over a year and it is still in great shape (besides some stratches). It's very durable and I put it together in less than 30 minutes. The instructions aren't that clear and I'm not good at putting things together, but I must have done a great job because this toy is still holding up very well. I highly recommend this toy because of the price and you will definitely get your money's worth out of it! The only bad thing would be that it does go fast, so safety might be an issue.

I bought this is a last minute Christmas gift after reading the reviews. I wasn't sure how it could be "propelled simply by turning steering wheel," but was willing to give it a try. Well, we took it to our local park on Christmas day, and boy did we have fun! Our park has lots of long, slightly inclined and curved cement walkways, which were perfect for riding this coaster! The coaster was long enough so that I could ride along with one son at a time. My husband (200 lbs.) was able to ride it, but I did notice that the wheels were bowing, so I didn't let him ride it too much...I didn't want it to break for the rest of us! But my dad (145 lbs.) easily rode it alone and with the boys. The only thing I had to complain about was that we had to walk the coaster back up the hills once we got to the bottom. Although this coaster will make minor forward movement by turning the steering wheel back and forth, you'll never use this as an actual method of getting anywhere! On flat or uphill surfaces, the only was to make any real progress is by using your feet or carrying this thing. On the plus side, it is light to carry! One other note: because this coaster does not have any brakes, you may want to be sure with whom and where you use it. We were able to pick up exciting speed on some low grade inclines, and I found that the steering wheel was very sensitive. Panic while you're going that fast and overcompensate, and you may tip over. Helmets are a must, and make sure to steer clear of people! Both of my boys, 2 and 7, went on with an adult. I would recommend this coaster if you have an appropriate place to get use out of it! Our boys really enjoy it and I love that mom, dad, and even grandpa all get to enjoy it, too!

My 2 kids love it who are 3 and 5, it is a blast going downhill on the driveway and going up and down the street!

I bought this for my grandson who is 2 1/2 yrs. old, and he absolutely loves it. I was amazed at at how easy he was able to get it to move. I looked like so much fun I had to give it a try. What a blast!! When are you going to come up with one for the adults?

Three kids ride our coaster: the two year old can sit on the coaster and scoot it along with her feet; the 2.5 year old can propel herself using the handles (although she can't yet keep her balance reliably, so she tips if the ground is unlevel); the 6 year old can propel and balance really easily - all three think it's great fun! The seat is long enough that the 2 and 2.5 year olds can sit in front of an adult for a fun, safe ride. The coaster was very easy to assemble (the 2 year old helped), it took less than 10 minutes to assemble. The coaster is lightweight and fits in our car trunk, so we can take it to the park easily. We added a tow rope so we can pull it back up hill or use it to pull the younger children. We're really happy with this toy, and we'll get years of play out of it since it appeals to such a wide range of ages.
If you want to get your kids a Christmas gift they'll love, give them new ways to get around the neighborhood. Ride-on toys are no stocking stuffer; these big toys are sure to be a hit on Christmas morning. Here are some of the best types of ride-on toys for each age level, so you can find the perfect gift for your child.
Three things cause a bathing suit to fade faster than anything else: chlorine, strong detergents, and sunlight. Any of these alone will cause fading, but when all three are combined, your swimsuit has little chance of retaining its brilliant color. Both chlorine and sunlight can bleach fabrics, and strong detergents can break down color in fabrics, resulting in color loss over time. By following these steps, you can keep a bathing suit from fading, which in turn helps it last season after season.
