buy it here (but you can find it elsewhere for MUCH less- I know.)
If you grew up in the 80s or 90s you'll probably think of this little vehicle as a Power Wheels. Technically, it's not the same brand, but the concept is the same.
This is the perfect little car for the toddler that is too young to ride a bike. Due to the size of the vehicle, however, your child will outgrow it before the age of 6, depending on your child's height.
Flat surfaces are a must: It goes 1.6 miles per hour, which seems fast, but it much slower than walking pace. There are no brakes, so keep that in mind. It stops when the child takes his foot off of the "gas" pedal. It has zero chance of making up a slight hill, but does present a minor hazard when attempting to go downhill without brakes.
It's fairly sturdy and when on a flat surface presents a relatively safe driving toy for a toddler.
Lightweight, but a pain to store due to it's size. And just like any car, requires buffing to keep it shiny.
My toddler adores this toy and it was the only thing he wanted from Santa. So far it has been worth the money.
We decorated it- does not come with American decals.
I'm not going to title this post. The date is the title.
Billy started his holiday by decorating his little red race car. I wasn't sure if we would actually put him in the parade, but at least we could be ready for it. We decorated it with stars and flag stickers that I made. He was very excited to decorate the car.
"Do you want to be in the parade?"
"Yes. What's a parade?"
The parade is a collection of kids on bikes, golf carts and old cars all decorated for the Fourth.
It was a scorcher. So I had Billy wait in the shade a the top of the hill and join the parade half way along the route. The car is so slow I didn't think it would make it up the hill.
Well, he stole the show. He waved like the Queen of England at the onlookers. I tried to get him to pull over to watch the rest of the parade, but parading was serious business to him. He kept going past the route and I had to get him to stop and join the post parade festivities.
There were Popsicles and turtle races and tug of war. He was very intent on all of the activities, which happened to take place during nap time. Consequently, he was asleep before we got home.
As tradition goes, after nap it was off to a cookout. That was followed by a boat ride to watch fireworks. Although to be honest, he was bored with the boat because he couldn't run around.
