“ Manufacturer: Famosa / Type: Toy Ride-ons „
Ages 1 -4
We actually own the Lightening Mc Queen motofeber, which is no longer available anywhere, but other than colour and stickers it is the exact same as this model. I am afraid the stickers won't stay on anyway, at least ours were very poorly done, but that is the only bad thing I could say about this toy.
It is a very sturdy balance motorbike. The idea is that this helps a child develop balance and fine motor skills. I can't say much on that as my sons have the balance of cats anyway. It does serve as a great source of excercise. The child sits on it and pushes with their feet, but you'd be surprised what speeds they can reach. It has a small horn that works by button batteries which seem to last quite well. If this gets wet the horn will sound non stop so it must be removed and the batteries allowed to dry. Another plus is that it comes fully assembled.
This toy has had non stop use since x-mas day. My 22 month old averages at least one hour a day, and has become quite the daredevil with it, flying down hills at breakneck speeds. My five year old uses it a good bit as well, although I certainley wouldn't buy it for a child that age.
Despite all the crashes and knocks it is still in perfect condition except for the stickers.
My opinion: this toy seemed quite expensive but now seeing how much joy it has given my child, it was worth every penny. That said it is now £10 less at Tesco than Amazon, so I'd be buying it there and save a few pennies. i also really like that this is a child powered toy rather than yet another battery toy. Even so it gets more use than their rechargeable battery operated bikes do.
My son's opinion: My 22 month old really loves this toy. He actually anted to bring it into bed, but I refused. When we spent a week on holiday he kept asking for this and as we pulled up to the house he raced out of the car shouting for it.
