Batteries don't last long, so get rechargeables.

I was concerned about all the poor reviews of this remote controlled car, but encouraged by the positive review by the remote controlled car enthusiast. I was sure my 2-year-old son would love it if it worked, so I took a chance on it.

Before Christmas, I removed it from the box, put new batteries in it, and made sure it worked. It seemed to run fine, even on carpet. I only did a few very brief test mini runs.

Christmas morning, my son liked it even before he realized what it did. When we showed him that the remote made it run, his eyes glowed. He loves buttons and is always trying to make our TV do things with its remote, so he dived right in, running it back and forth.

But soon, after much less than a minute, it became sluggish. We could hear the motor racing, but the car barely moved. I took it to a linoleum floor, which was a slight improvement, but it still barely worked forward and back, and came to a stop if turned in either direction.

I had originally put in Energizer batteries. The next day I got some Duracell Ultras and tried them. It was just as sluggish with the Duracell Ultras.

I took the car apart to see what I could do. Taking it apart wasn't easy. The rear wheels and axle needed to come out to get access to the gearbox, but the inner blue fenders trap the rear wheels in. I couldn't get the rear wheels to pull off of the axle. I found some screws to remove on one of the weels, but removing those screws didn't help. Finally I took a hacksaw and cut down one of the inner blue fenders to allow that wheel to slip off.

From there, I finished removing the wheel from the axle to get access to the gearbox lid, then removed the gearbox lid.

After reading the reviews for this car I felt I should add mine. We've had this car for almost eight months and have really enjoyed it.

This is a great beginner RC. I purchaced this car for my sons 4th birthday after an extensive online search. This car fit all of the basic needs for the starter RC I was looking for. I have been very pleased with this purchase.

It has some definate pros and cons. The pros are that it is very durable. My experience is that the battery life was pretty good. A key factor, like many other toys, is turning it off when my son is done playing with it. It is also very durable as far as the rough play of little boy. My son loves the clown remote and easily uses the buttons. I love the fact that it fits into the top. We haven't lost it yet. It is a pretty easy car to manuver. Some cons are it is recommended for inside use only, which caused some frustrations at first. It also runs poorly on carpet and has no reverse.

Overall this is a quality toy. If you are looking for a starter RC I would highly recommend this toy. My son still continues to play with it.

This car worked ok for about 5 minutes then all you heard was the motor running but the car don't move. My guess was it running into walls might have caused this so durability is very low. I actually sent it back and got another one and it did the exact same thing. A design flaw maybe. If you just want a car to push around you can get one for much less money.

We bought this for our son, and were excited about his first remote control car! However, after a month of playing with it, the gears became stripped and it wouldn't work anymore. We were very disappointed. The intention of this car is wonderful, but when you actually get the car, you realize how poorly crafted it is. I would not recommend this toy to anyone. When you spend money on toys, especially toys from decent toy manufacturers, you expect the quality to be there. I am sure this was tested over a period of time, so I am sure that they knew this car did not provide very high quality.

this car doesn't work, it looks cute and SHOULD be perfect for a one or two year old to master the basics of remote control vehicles, but it didn't survive regular use, my child didn't throw or damage it, it just didn't work. A real disappointment. Sorry, thumbs down on this one.

My son received this for his 3rd Birthday. He was so excited because he loves cars. After the first few times he played with it, he told me it was broken. I assumed it was the batteries, so I replaced them. About a week later, he came to me again, saying it was "broken." This time I realized that the remote control has batteries too, so I replaced those. Well, it still doesn't work! What a waste. This is a such a cute toy and my son would love to play with it. But all that doesn't mean squat if it doesn't work! Don't waste your money!

As stated in the other reviews, this would have been a fun toy if it worked longer than 5 minutes. We replaced the batteries several times, but it did not make a difference. My son got it for his first bithday and loved it, however, we had to get rid of it as it created more frustration than fun.

Too bad!

I was also discouraged by the reviews but bought it anyway. It was a lot of fun! While it worked. We experienced the same symptoms as the other reviewers here ... I appreciate the info on how to fix it but should we have to? It's too bad because it really is a cute toy and my 2 year old loved it. I would not buy it again. If you are considering purchasing this toy make sure the company has fixed it first.
