This review is from: Radio Flyer Classic Bumper Car (Toy)
I noticed from the other reviews that the people were disappointed that you have to hit the car hard to make a noise. I guess if the noise was a major part of your buying decision this could be somewhat of a disappointment. I have three kids however and don't need any more noise in my house. For this reason I am glad it hardly ever makes noise. As far as ride ons go we have had quite a few and this one is the most favorite. My almost two, four and six year old all love to ride on this. I think the reason is two fold. One, the wheels swivel like they would on a better suitcase. This allows the child to go in any direction smoothly, unlike a regular car which has to be picked up/dragged to change direction. Two the way the wheel is placed does not interfere with the older kids knees. A common complaint when stealing the little guys other ride ons.
I like it because it doesn't seem to scratch my hard woods as much as the other cars which have larger wheels and have to be dragged/scooted/scraped to change direction. Also the rubber bumper helps when they smash into the walls or the refrigerator.
I am guessing if you live in a warmer climate without frost heaves and road sand you could probably ride it outside too. Here in the northeast it is pretty much an indoor or garage car.

Thanks for a great review. How tall is this riding toy? Can your 6yo ride comfortably on it? It's not too low?

You're welcome! It isn't comfortable for the six year old. I would say the target size would be 2-3 years. The seat is 8.5 inches off the ground and quite broad. 7.5" Hope That helps.
