Advantages: No batteries, No pedals, really cool to use. Light weight and quite compact too! Disadvantages: None! My hubby and I were sat flicking through the channels one night when we came across a shopping channel advertising Didi Cars, they looked really funky and we knew our youngest would love one.
After having a quick look on ebay we came across this swing car. It was brand new off a seller who had loads of them boxed up ready for sale. I am sure we only actually paid around £12 for the car and the postage was free! He was selling them so cheap compared to an actual Didi car we thought that if it was terrible we weren't loosing much. If you follow the Amazon link above it shows two photo's for the same car, the one we have is the second bright blue one.
I had my grandfather to purchase it for me as at the time I did not have a Paypal account and he did, when the car arrived my grandfather phoned me to say so, and that he didn't think it was going to be any good as the box was so light! I rushed up to my grandparents house and opened the box, I found the car unit inside with the back wheels attached but the front wheels and steering wheel were separate and needed to be screwed on. I set about doing so and found it went together very easily! It was quite a small car but I still thought it was perfect for my son, my grandfather also thought it was brilliant!
The brilliant thing with these cars is that they DO NOT need batteries! Excellent on Christmas morning!
To move the car you simply steer the wheel and it glides across the floor, there are no pedals either you sit on the car with your feet up and move the wheel!
The smoother the surface the faster you will go so my son was riding around the house like a maniac on Christmas morning as we have laminate flooring right through the downstairs! My other sons also had a go and it held them fine too, they are seven and nine, my nine year old had a brilliant time on it and said he wouldn't mind one! It does say suitable for adults too, but I didn't dare have a go just in case lol!!
It's a basic little ride on but so much fun!
You can go forwards or backwards and around corners even in circles if you wish all depending on which way you turn the steering wheel!
The one I bought also came with a pack of stickers to jazz it up and to be honest even though it is very plain the colour is lovely so the stickers are not really needed! We did stick some on though as my son wanted to!
I would recommend these cars to anyone!
£25 on Amazon or you can buy 2 for £27 on ebay!
They are more than worth it, and my boys love it! I think I will buy another one or two!
Oh, to stop you haven't got any brakes you just put your feet down! Summary: A great little car, even for the older kids!
