CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
The Morphibians Gator can tackle all kinds of terrain -- it even drives on water! View larger.
A Cool, Full-Function Alligator-Styled RC Vehicle
As its name suggests, the Morphibians Gator RC vehicle is suited for both land and water environments. With textured hard plastic and an organic shape, this speedy car's design and details mirrors that of a mighty alligator that lurks in the marshes but strikes quickly at its prey.
The front end features softly-ridged green detailing and teeth that evokes an alligator's mouth and gives this toy a unique personality. Other features include four-wheel drive, tinted windows, and gas-tank detailing.
Drives on Land and Water
The rugged Gator's tires have deep grooves to help it maneuver over cracks, bumps and uneven terrain. But on water, it floats and is propelled forward by the four-wheel drive. This cool RC vehicle moves smoothly between different terrains without toppling or spinning out.
Whether driving from pavement to pool or grass to rocky dirt path, kids will love operating the Gator. The green and smooth RC handset has a generous range and ergonomic handles that are comfortable to hold. The two joysticks allow for greater control, more nuanced driving, and quick turns.
The Gator should be used in calm, non-saltwater environments. After adult-supervised water play, the Gator should be drained of excess water and towel dried. Outdoor toys can be messy, but this durable RC toy cleans up easily with a damp towel.

They seem durable enough. I wouldn't want to throw them in the pool (even if they do say they are amphibious, I don't think they are submersible) or down a flight of stairs, but so far they have withstood a number of bumps, drops, and kicks.
The controls are simple to use. On the vehicle there is an on/off switch and on the remote there are two joy sticks, push one forward and the wheels on the corresponding side of the car go forward. Pull it back and the wheels on that side of the car go in reverse. Push both joy sticks forward and the car goes, etc.) It like driving a tracked vehicle. Our four-year old got the hang of it pretty quickly but hasn't focused on it enough to actually avoid hitting things.
There is enough torque in the car that it can run on carpet but this will run through bateries faster. It is actually also pretty good outdoors in the garden. Still it is at its best on smooth floors.
The battery life seems okay, but it would also depend upon how much the kids (or in my case the parents) play with it.
In my opinion there are two problems with this toy. First, it requires two different types of batteries. The vehicle takes 3 AA batteries and the remote takes 2 AAA batteries. This is a pain because I always have AA batteries but AAA batteries always seem to require a trip to the shops. The second problem is a lack of a power switch on the remote.Read more ›
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!
There's just two buttons: push the left one, it steers left; push the right one, it steers right; push both buttons forward, it goes forward; pull both buttons back, it goes backward.
The big, grippy tires give it lots of traction. There's also a blue Land Shark version, complete with a fin on top of the car! It's sure to thrill any child lucky enough to get their hands on one.
Changing the batteries is a bit time consuming because two screws have to be removed, but battery life seems very good. I use rechargeable Sanyo Eneloops. The car takes 3 AA's and the controller takes 2 AAA's.
Range is OK... could be better indoors but is better outdoors... just don't expect that much, maybe up to 100 feet outdoors.
The headlights (which appear to be LEDs) are nice. They are on anytime the unit is on.
Durability seems pretty good though the on/off switch can sometimes be a bit fussy and difficult to turn on (sometimes need to wiggle it a bit). There's no on/off switch on the controller. Overall though, this seems to be a great toy for the price.
UPDATE 2009-09-15: The vehicle continues to operate even with all the abuse and dropping it has taken. A piece did break off one of the headlights though, but considering the abuse it's taken and that it's still working is a testament to its durability. It's not indestructible, but seems pretty close. I still think this is a great beginner RC car for young kids.
