Safe and Fun for All Ages
Let's be honest, sometimes you just need somewhere to direct your kid's energy. Get them away from the T.V. with the easy-to-use Swivel Car. This ride on car is so safe and easy that a toddler can enjoy it, and the heavy-duty construction is sure to let older kids (or even adults!) have a blast.
This car relies on gravity and friction created by the rider. Not only is this great exercise and entertainment, but the Swivel Car helps children develop their motor skills as they cruise around tables or roll around on the driveway.
New and Improved Wheels
We upgraded the wheels from the polypropylene plastic that easily breaks, to polyurethane (rubber) wheels. This is a huge innovation that makes for a faster, smoother ride that can handle rougher surfaces. Here's a quick rundown on the benefits of using polyurethane:
- The material is more elastic
- Can rebound- the wheel will return to its original shape quickly after being distorted. These wheels can handle rougher surfaces as it will conform to the shape of a small rock, then quickly rebound to its original shape. This also minimizes the rolling resistance of the wheel so it can ride faster and smoother.
- Resistant to flat spotting- A lot of wheels will wear in only one spot, which makes an annoying egg-shape that ruins the wheel's functionality. The polyurethane is more durable, but will wear evenly to prolong the life of the wheel.
- Won't scratch hardwood floors
- ABEC 7 bearings- We also added Abec7 bearings which cause less friction, so these wheels are more durable for longer-lasting fun.
Indoor or Outdoor Use
Here's another bonus. The wheels won't scratch or dent your hardwood floors, making it great for both indoor and outdoor use. This quiet car can give your kid great exercise and fun even through those long winter months or on bad weather days.
Top customer reviews
The house is rather large, with hardwood and tile floors. Not sure they would be as fun on shag/deep pile carpet, but they are amazing on hardwood and tile. The tires are a soft rubber, similar to roller blade wheels, and make very little noise. No scratches/scuffs have been noticed on the floor. Very happy with this purchase (or rather the children are).
ARE THESE FUN FOR ALL AGES?
These are a blast! We own both official Plasma Cars and Rolling Coaster Cars along with the Swivel Cars. All of them are the same concept and we bought them for little kids (who LOVED them) and learned quickly that TEENS and ADULTS also love them!! These are just so fun and we've had adults that weigh over 200lbs on them all and so-far-so-good. Just a blast!
ARE THE BRANDS THE SAME?
We started with PlasmaCar and the kids really loved them so we thought it would be great to get some more for our children's ministry. Hoping to save money we found the Rolling Coaster Cars at another "overstock" vendor online; they looked the same and were roughly $10 less per car. When the Roller Coaster Cars arrived and were assembled the quality seemed very close to the original Plasma Cars but the wheels were rubber and not hard plastic. In our experience this made the cars drive much faster and smoother.
WHY SWIVEL CARS BRAND?
These little cars are of the same quality as the PlasmaCar. From the weight of the plastic to the number of supports, to the parts used these are identical in quality and form. The slight difference being the seat on the PlasmaCar has a raised notch at the end and the Swivel Cars have an extra cover under the back wheels which seems like an improvement over the Plasma Car design.
The fact that these cars came with the rubber wheels and were faster and easier to control (due to wheels & ABEC 7 bearings we assume) and cost less than the Plasma Car (and less than the Rolling Coaster Car as well) made these the easy victor in any comparison between the three "brands". The kids also preferred the color choices of the Swivel Cars but that will vary by child of course.
In full disclosure one of the four cars arrived with a slight crack in the back and a chipped piece on the wheel connector. This can happen with plastic products as they are stored and shipped, and it really does not reflect on the quality of the product itself. It does however put a spotlight on picking the right company to purchase your Swivel Cars from online. I contacted Linenspa and shared them information about the damaged car and they quickly responded and took complete care of the problem. The customer service was above-and-beyond, as customer service should be! I demand a lot from customer service and they exceeded expectations. The swivel cars are quality cars (the best we've found thus far), but you must order from a top-notch seller as you never know when customer service might be needed.
I will have to admit that prior to me purchasing these specific swivel cars, I ordered a less expensive brand. The old saying is true.... you do get what you pay for. Although they looked exactly the same, they were not. The two most obvious things were that the other ones would only hold up to 88 pounds (which means I couldn't ride, lol), and the wheels on the other ride on toy were just cheap plastic, unlike the rubber ones on the Swivel Car. I quickly realized that the lack of quality wasn't something I was willing to compromise on.
Do be aware that the cars must be ridden on a smooth, flat surface, otherwise you will have a very disappointed child. Now, I must wrap up here because the kids are at school and I can go have fun without them screaming for me to stop riding their cars!
Other than that, they are great toys and I would recommend this "type" of ride-on.
