After hearing about the Plasmacar for quite a while, this unique ride-on finally made its arrival at our Florida home.
Curious and a bit puzzled about the popularity of this different ride-on, the kids and I put it together ourselves in no time. It took a little man power, but with the help of my sons and the neighborhood boys, the Plasmacar was soon up and running. In fact, putting together the Plasmacar took less than 15 minutes.
The Plasmacar was an immediate hit with my sons and the neighborhood boys, and whenever we take the Plasmacar out for a ride, we end up with lines. Lines filled with kids waiting for their turn on the Plasmacar, while someone else is having a blast riding down the sidewalks.
The Plasmacar is different from regular ride-ons, because of the fact that it moves forward thanks to the movement of the steering. With a simple side-to-side movement the kids make the Plasmacar go faster and faster down the street, and it is quite an energy burner. The older kids quickly caught on, while the younger kids needed a little more time to get the hang of the concept. After a few rides, all of the children in our neighborhood now knows how to use the Plasmacar, and it is always a hit.
The Plasmacar is designed to hold children up to 220 lbs, and I must say that this high weight limit makes it fun for kids of all ages. My tall10-year-old son has a blast on the Plasmacar, and we have even had a big teenage boy take the Plasmacar for a ride down the street. Despite the capacity to hold children up to 220 lbs, the Plasmacar is surprisingly lightweight at about 7 lbs.
Riding the Plasmacar takes quite a bit of energy, and with three boys in the house, energy is one thing we have plenty of. The Plasmacar comes in many different colors, so there is something for every taste.
- It only weighs about 7 lbs
- It is made of durable ABS plastic
- It can hold children up to 220 lbs
- It is easy and quick to assemble
- It moves with the help of movement from the steering
- The Plasmacar has received numerous awards including the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Best Toy award, the National Parenting Center, Seal of Approval and the iParenting Media Toy Award in the Toy Category.
