My son received this toy a few days ago as a gift for his second birthday. I've been amazed at how quickly he has learned to use it. He has picked up on the forward and backward buttons and is working on the steering aspect. He loves this toy! As an adult, I'm having fun with it too. I find the remote control range is about 8-10 feet and the steering isn't as accurate as it could be, but it seems to be durable. My son has sent it off of tables, chairs, and the couch and it is working great. If you are looking for a remote control car for a 2-4 year old, this is a great choice.
I don't love this car. The steering works by tilting the controller, and it's not terribly intuitive, even for adults. Worst of all is the fact that batteries (for car and controller) seem to last about 2 days before you need new ones. I imagine a cheaper car with fewer bells and whistles would be better for my toddler.
My boy loves the sound effects, the missles and easy to drive.
There has been NO problems and this toy has held up to my boy crashing it into his other toys, throwing on the floor during tantrums and it still works perfectly. I'm impressed, it's one of the first toys ...let alone a remote toy that has actually seemed to be made with a childs rough play in mind. Excellent purchase!
Car req. 4 AA batteries and Controller req. 3 AAA batteries.
