... bought this for a four year old boy who liked it pretty well
on August 16, 2016
I bought this for a four year old boy who liked it pretty well. However, he clearly became jealous of the other rc car I bought for his brother. While the Holy Stone's rc car had incredibly easy controls and lots of sound, the Kid Galaxy's rc car was a little tougher to use in that one toggle stick controlled the front wheels and the other toggle controlled the back wheels. As a result, the car doesn't go straight forward or straight back when only one toggle is used. Both toggles need to be used to get the car going straight, otherwise, it only goes in a circle. For this four year old, those kind of mechanics were frustrating, especially when his brother had only to press one button to have his car careening forward. So this car might be a better buy for an older kid.
Despite that, the car itself is very study and firm; not necessarily fast but it drives with a steady weight that allows it to drive over pretty much every terrain: be it carpet, wood, tile, dirt, grass, and even through puddles. It controls well and responds satisfyingly. An older child would absolutely love this.
Please NOTE: do not get multiples of these cars for children in the same household, as they will all have the same frequency and thus will not respond to each individual child but to only one. Be sure to check the frequency of rc cars when getting more than one. I bought a different car from a different seller for the kid's brother so that the frequencies wouldn't clash.
