Product Description

Product Description

Turn the steering wheel and...away you go! No gears, batteries or pedals - simply turn the steering wheel back and forth continuously to propel the PlasmaCar® forward. Speed up to 6 mph on smooth, flat surfaces and with continuous, fluid movements. Great exercise indoors and out. The PlasmaCar® is not recommended for use on wood floors. Intended for smooth, flat, hard surfaces. Will not function on carpet, grass, gravel, sand or any other loose, soft or cushioned surface. Recommended for ages 3 to 8 and supports up to 220 pounds so parents can take it for a test drive too! Some assembly required, approximate assembly time: 15 minutes with included instructions.

From the Manufacturer

It's like magic, but you don't need to be a magician to get it to work. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power, by harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. It's so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface. The PlasmaCar is adult-friendly, too. For starters, it doesn't require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement. No batteries, no power-cells, no liquid fuel-just the occasional cookie or two. It's quiet too-the only sound you'll hear is the sound of its wheels. It provides kids with plenty of exercise, more so than most toys. And the PlasmaCar is engineered to be absolutely safe when used appropriately. It's been extensively tested, and meets or exceeds all significant international safety standards.¿ Fully Assembled: 31" x¿ 14" x 16"¿¿¿¿ 8.15 lbs

I was very excited to purchase the plasma car for my kids 9 and 6, for Christmas.  We have hardwood floors throughout, and my 6 year old and my toddler nieces love to ride around on their big wheel tricycles during winter months, but my 9 yr old is always left out.  I read the reviews about the plasma cars and how it can hold up to 200 lbs.  Some reviews were saying that parents were even enjoying themselves, riding around during family get- togethers.   So I thought, wouldn't it be nice for my 9 yr old to still be able to ride around with her younger sister and cousins.  I put the first one together and tested it out.  It worked, but it was very slow.....I'm 135 lbs;  my daughter is 85 lbs, but I can't imagine it would be a whole lot faster, if she were on it.  It was just OK.
 So I researched a little and learned that I could replace the plastic wheels with polyurethane wheels.  Imagine rollerblades with plastic wheels vs. rollerblades with polyurethane wheels and you'll understand the amount of difference the latter makes!   I couldn't find replacement wheels online so I went to sports authority and they showed me rollerblade wheels that fit perfectly.  I got the 80/82a size rollerblade wheels.  (make sure the ones you get come with the bearings)  All you need is a racket wrench and replacing the front wheels takes less then a minute.  Super easy!   I tried it out with the polyurethane wheels in front and kept the plastic wheels in the back.  Very smooth and fast. I felt like a kid again zipping around, making sharp turns- it became AWESOME!   I even sat my 1 year old on my lap and we rode around for 20 minutes because he was having so much fun!  I then proceeded to try and change the back wheels... Thats where the problem came in.

CONSTRUCTION

This is a unibody plastic construction. The wheels and steering wheel are also hard plastic. The foot rests and seat are contoured to prevent slipping. This ride is light enough for a child to pick up and put away. If you have more than one child, you really need one for each child plus an extra - for adults, like me. I am 190 lbs and I move rather easily on smooth surfaces.

OPERATION

The operator turns the steering wheel to propel the vehicle forward. Wider turns give more momentum for speed than smaller turns of the wheel. The wheels are smooth so the optimal surface is a floor made of linoleum or smooth concrete. A driveway or street impart a lot of friction and are not an optimal surface for mobility. Carpet has too much drag.

Since this has no form of self propulsion or engine, beyond kid power, it is quiet - with the exception of your child screaming with fun.

In the age of video games and excessive television for entertainment, this is a great outlet for getting kids to use their energy. Ideally, I would say this toy is suitable for kids ages 5 through 12.

CONCLUSION

This is a great toy that is fun, durable and not terribly expensive.

Two thumbs up!

This is actually an impressive device. I originally purchased to aid in Granddaughter's Physical Therapy. I have since purchased 2 more for other Grands. It appears I will be buying 3 more in the near future to accommodate my son, daughter-in-law and WIFE so the Grands do not have to compete for usage! These are great. Appear safer than bikes and trikes and can be used indoors. I like the color options for instant owner identity (No VIN or tag to run). PlaSmart needs to create a Parking Deck for these!

As kid toys go, this one is pretty cool - but it could be better. I bought this last week and I tested it out with myself, my 29-year-old sister, and her two kids (3 and 1). My sister and I had fun, but we found the car went really slowly. My 1-year-old niece enjoyed sitting on the car and pushing it with her feet, and my nephew had fun once he got the hang of it. He did have a little trouble at first when the wheel was backwards, though (it makes the car go backwards).

My only real complains are that it tips pretty easily and it doesn't go very fast. Wheels with a bit more grip would definitely help, but a better recommendation is just to get a Roller Racer/Flying Turtle. I had also purchased one of those, and we enjoyed it a lot more. It's the same basic concept of side to side motion, but it's a little faster and you seem to work more muscles using it. That's not to say this isn't a great toy, it just didn't seem as cool next to the Roller Racer.

Regardless of what you end up getting, bear in mind that you really need to have a good amount of space that's flat and level. It's very difficult to go up even a small hill.It also helps if the floor is not TOO smooth, since that makes it harder to get a good grip between the floor and the wheels. Concrete is great, although it puts more wear and tear on your wheels.

If you have a good sized basement with a concrete floor, these are one of the best toys ever! Get AT LEAST two for racing and chasing. They really do hold adults with ease, and kids use them for hours on end. We bought two when our daughter was 9. These were the most used basement toys/activity for at least 4 years whenever friends came over and at parties. Still fun to this day. Just remember that they do not work well on inclines, outside or on carpet.
