Is The Power Wheels Lightning McQueen Ride On Worth Buying?
This is a fantastic ride on toy gift for any child who loved the Disney Cars movie. The details mean that it looks very much like the character in the movie, and it even makes realistic sounds too! Whenever your child presses the button on the steering wheel they will hear a different phrase (in either English or Spanish) alongside racing car sounds. There’s also the option to hear racing sounds on their own, if your child wants to pretend that they’re zooming around.
The car itself is designed for ages 1-7, and can support up to 65 pounds in weight. A number of features ensure that your children will be safe when driving in the car. Firstly, there’s a strong steel frame supporting the car, which itself comes with no sharp edges on the inside.
There are two driving speeds to suit children at different driving levels. The fastest your child can go forwards is 3.5 mph, and there’s also a reverse mode if your child needs to back up. Even if they’ve never used a toy like this before, the power lock braking system means that the car will stop whenever they take their foot away from the pedal. It’s generally very easy for kids to get the hang of the driving controls, but left and right steering will take a little practice.
Try to set aside a good amount of time for assembling the Power Wheels Disney Lightning McQueen. You’ll need to attach a few accessories (such as the bumper) and add the stickers to help make this look just like the movies. Most important to note, however, is that the battery is going to take at least 18 hours to charge before the car is ready to play with. Make sure you give the instructions a thorough read before using the car, as you’ll need to maintain the car battery in order to keep it working for years to come.
In short, the Power Wheels Disney Lightning McQueen car is an excellent toy for boys and girls who loved the Cars 2 movie. Although this is a race car design, it certainly doesn’t race along in practice, so it’s best suited to younger children who will enjoy the experience of their first ever car.
