Using two Morphibians together/frequencies,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kid Galaxy Morphibians Gator Radio Control Vehicle (Toy)
I have been looking for a set of remote cars that I could purchase for my twins. All of those we've tried so far run on the same frequency, so one remote works both cars, and one remote does nothing - very frustrating.
We do not own these Morphibians yet (so please disregard rating - though it's worth 3 stars just that they have two frequencies!), but I did speak with Kid Galaxy customer service (very nice!) and she said they have 3 models that run on one frequency (27Mhz) and 2 models that run on another (49Mhz). So you just need to make sure you purchase models that run on different frequencies and then they'll operate independently.
Gator = 27Mhz
Killer Whale = 27Mhz
Rover = 27Mhz
Shark = 49Mhz
Explorer = 49Mhz
Just thought this might be helpful to anyone else looking for two that can be played with together! I'll update the review once we receive them and have played with them!

Thank you so much for your helpful information! I have two little boys and was trying to figure out who would get one of these but now they both can! Wonderful - no fighting!

Thank you so much for this information! I'm looking for Christmas presents for my twin boys and have these under consideration. Too bad recent reviews are so bad.

REALLY appreciate the frequency info. I also have twin boys and have run into that problem before.

Since I was looking for something for 3 little boys, it looks like I am out of luck with this. Thanks for the info.

Thank you for the information, it helped for about a hour. Unfortunately, anything made in China that runs on 27mhz will take over these things. My son's remote control Sonic car(runs on 27mhz) took over the Gator and vice versa. Now the Gator lost the ability to go forward, it will only go backwards and in circles. Complete waste of money. Never experienced this before, every well made toy works independently.

Just ran into the same problem - bought 3 different models for our 3 kids, but two of them are the same frequency. Both controllers control both cars simultaneously, so it is impossible to use them together (unless they are far enough apart). However, the cars seem very robust and powerful - the twins seem to be having fun anyway, despite the fact their cars are schizophrenic :-)
