UPDATE: So we've now had these for a while, and contrary to my expectations, they have actually held up very well indeed. My son (4 years old) and daughter (2 years old) still play with them often (which is unusual enough) and they get pretty banged up. They're still going strong with nary a crack, dent, or scratch. Color me impressed!
Playing with these is so easy, even those Jersey Shore kids could figure it out without the instructions (well, maybe). Just twist the front of the car several times until a loud click is heard, put the car down and press the button. The car takes off instantly and goes pretty far. When they hit a wall or other object, they'll usually turn around from the impact and keep going in a different direction. It's really cool since I thought they'd stop altogether. As an added bonus you can mix and match by pulling the cars apart, and when more colors come out, you can make some unique combinations. It's too bad you can't combine them with the school bus models too.
Kid Galaxy did a great job on these Ratchet Racers. I didn't think my daughter would like them as much as she does, but she's been playing with them non-stop since we opened the box. It's also surprising that these are as low-priced as they are, where similar toy cars run for a few bucks more.
To crank them up, simply twist the two parts a few times. After you are satsfied with the cranking, place them on a hard surface like a wood floor or concrete carport and then push the button on top to watch them go.
The button is what I believe I like most about these little toys. There's no need to hold the tires in place or press down hard on the vehicle before letting it go. Just push the button and they are off!
In my son's hands, these little vehicles have managed to hold up quite well. They've already taken a few hits from table corners, walls, and the occasional cat, but they aren't that much worse for wear yet.
Recommended to children under the age of eight. These little cars are very fun to play with.
I was impressed that the cars ran fairly well on carpeted floors in addition to wood floors. A lot of wind-up cars like these struggle to make any headway on anything but hard floors. Additionally, they're easy for kids to wind-up and then release with a push-button on top.
My one beef - and it's not a big one - is that the mix-and-match feature of the cars means that they come apart really easily. There's no catch in pulling them apart and, as a result, they come apart super easy. That happens on occasion when they crash as well. It's not a huge deal, but sort of annoying.
All in all, they're fun cars (I don't mind at all when my kids pull them out to play!).
Not only are they self-powered and require no batteries, they're fairly creative. You "wind" the cars at the midsection of the car, then put them down, press the button on top, and they're off! This is a refreshing way of powering a car like this (remember those serated black whip-strings we had when we were kids, and we had to pull them out super-fast to get the car revved up?) and the button on top is the best because you can get both cars to start up from a dead stop right at once.
The Ratchet Racers I got for my son didn't include the race track, and I'm tempted to buy it again just because my almost-three year old loves these cars by themselves, and would be out of his mind happy with a track, too! We've been racing them down a hall and into the kitchen to crash into the cabinets, and he laughs every time they crash. As I mentioned earlier, I thought one crash might ruin the set for good, but they are made for crashing and built to last.
Additionally, the fact that you can take the cars apart and put the front end of one onto the back end of the other is a little treat for my son. He figured it out right away, and he was so excited that he could do that that he did the "Daddy! Daddy!" exclamation and even ran into the other room to show his mother (and try to explain it to her as well).
In my opinion, this is short money for a fun and durable toy, and I would definitely recommend it, not only for my son's entertainment experience, but also because I fully expect to buy more of these in the future, for my son and as presents.
