CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Your toddler can run this R/C car all over the house without damaging your floors or furniture, thanks to the oversized, cushioned body of the vehicle. An added benefit for parents is that this 2-in-1 car is much quieter than most other radio control vehicles. The Bounce Back Racer also comes with a toddler-friendly remote that is easy to control without mom or dad's help; it has two simple-to-use buttons to get the car racing away at top speed.
Though the vehicle can only move forwards and backwards, it works well for all ages. Toddlers will be able to easily control their first R/C car with the simple buttons, while older children can zoom the racer up to top speed over any obstacles of their choice with no problem.
Great For Beginners or Advanced Racers
We were most impressed that the car can run all over the house and furniture without leaving any scuffs or marks. And since it is quieter than other R/C vehicles we have tested, parents won't have to worry about constant loud noise--unless it's coming from your children having fun. And as a 2-in-1 car, it can flip over and keep moving with no problems, maximizing your child's playtime and speeding possibilities.

Top Customer Reviews
The Bounce Back Racer has one of the most perplexing battery configurations I've ever seen. There are two separate, screwed down compartments where batteries go. The location of these compartments is not at all obvious. Each compartment takes three AA batteries.
Then there's the seating of the batteries themselves. I've never seen a setup like this. Two batteries are stacked on top of one another, and then one side by side. The stacking of the two batteries makes removal extremely tricky.
My other complaint about the batteries is that the car chews through them very quickly. With moderate playing, be prepared to rehash the battery replacement nightmare every couple of days.
Once you get the batteries in, the thing is pretty fun to play with. My only gripe about the way the car works is that it would be nice to have some minimal steering. But I can understand why Tonka opted not to include this.
The build quality of the car itself is excellent. It can run into walls without doing any damage to the car of the walls. It's also made of a rubbery material instead of a hard plastic. So you don't have to worry about your kid dropping it and 1000 little pieces snapping off.
This car really could have been great if the designers had rethought the battery design. I know it sounds like minutia, but wait until you try to install these suckers. It's a real pain.
The picture on the box shows an older child but it says it's for a toddler. Maybe a toddler will enjoy it.
Right about the time we thought it was something we were doing, I remembered the cardinal rule of all products - when in doubt, check Amazon reviews! Glad to know it wasn't just us.
