This post is more sort of dedicated to Dads as all the dads out there would love to race this with their little boys! Mine were fighting over it as one likes it with the remote and one likes it without the remote, obviously my son doesn't want the remote. Asked why, he says so that he can keep it in his hands all the time! Plainly, he is not happy to share this toy with daddy, who is way too much in love with Tonka Ricochet.
When it arrived, I was surprised at how big it was. It is easily a foot and a quarter and a bit on the heavy side. It's not a toddler toy. But my 3 yr old played with it as my husband monitored him. It is battery powered and can be very, very fast. It is meant for 8+ yrs as they can race it by themselves. As always, play it safe! We made sure that there was nothing around that could get tangled in the car. It was very convenient to drive it on the sidewalk or on a plain surface.
It is really a cool monster truck when at the push of the controller it gets up on its feet to transform into a monster truck. It goes lower to the ground like a monster race car when turned again. It can go forward and reverse and turn right, left. Very sturdy and built for tough play.
The best part is that it comes with rechargeable batteries and a charger. Since it is a heavy toy, the battery lasts only for 15-20 minutes. We loved this toy and it can fascinate little boys and men, equally!
It retails for $79.99
