My son was bought one of these remote control cars a while ago, so I am not sure of price & availablity on this item. As soon as we recieved the car we put some batteries in, eager to get started. Bear in mind that this toy does take 8, yes 8!, AA batteries, which proved not to last long (& not with what you'd class as over-use either). This can become very costly & i would recommend using rechargeable batteries in such an item.
Ease of use is good - the car & the remote are chunky & easy for little hands to hold. The buttons for forward / reverse / left & right are also chunky and easy for little ones to locate & press.
The car is recommended for age 6+, which i feel is far too old for such a chunky babyish remote control toy. My son was 18 months when he received it & soon got the hang of it (& there are no small parts to worry about either, so age is not a problem).
Sadly, the wheels of the car soon ran out of alignment, & it wasn't long before it pretty much gave up all together. Along with the gobbling of batteries it soon became just a push along car for my son. Perhaps we should have waited til he was a little older before giving it to him, or maybe the car would have ended up the same way regardless?
Overall a cute item, which stores away easily, with the remote clipping on top of the car then providing a carry handle. Nice bright primary colours.
