What We Think

Fun factor:
Durability:
Ease of assembly:
Educational factor:

The Good: A quiet, fun R/C vehicle that won't leave behind scuffs or messes when used indoors.

The Challenging: May not appeal to older, more R/C-experienced children.

In a Nutshell: A soft and squishy 2-in-1 R/C vehicle that handles well indoors.

Soft and Squishy, Yet Durable and Safe
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.

If you are planning on buying more than one, they all run on same frequency. So you wouldn't be able to have them near each other, despite what you may have seen on Jon&Kate plus 8. So sweet of Hasbro to send them toys to promote on thier show for free, but it is misleading, they don't all work when played with in the same vicinity.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my son, and so I haven't gotten to see how much he enjoys it yet. However, I took it out of the box to test it out. It is a nice remote control car for a younger child. It has a very simple two switch (forward and backward) controller. It does seem very durable and you can run it into walls and furniture without worry of damaging them. I was disappointed, though, because it doesn't perform as shown on TV. If the car is driven into something at an angle it will bounce back; however, if it hits something straight on it just gets stuck and the wheels spin and spin. You then have to reverse to get the car going again. And after playing with it several times, I was only able to get it to flip over twice and that's only because I was really trying to over and over and over again. After looking at the package again, the product description says it "MAY bounce back or even flip." I have to say that description is accurate. If you're expecting lots of flipping...don't. If you can get past that, it is a fun toy and I do think that kids would really like it.

This was purchased for my three year-old son for his birthday. It sure does look cool, and it can take a serious beating, but the killer is the limited range. It seriously has a range of two feet or less. If you run alongside the car it runs great, and will flip walls and everything. That is, unless your child hits the wall first running to keep up with the car. With such a short range, it kills all the fun. What's the point of a RC car if you can't control it from a distance. Needless to say, my son hasn't touched it, as he gets frustrated when it quits working three feet away from him. This one needs to go back to the drawing board. Shameful.

Let me preface this review by saying that I'm pretty handy and tech savy. I've assembled computers by hand, repaired cars and installed batteries in hundreds of toys and gadgets.

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.

We got this car for son's 4th birthday 2 weeks ago. He won't play with it now because he says it is boring. The remote has a limited range. There is no steering wheel and unless we lost the directions, there is not way to control the direction the car is going. He can't take it on walks or make a track. He can only control back and forward. It will also run and then stop for no reason.
The picture on the box shows an older child but it says it's for a toddler. Maybe a toddler will enjoy it.

I'll just reiterate what the other reviewers have said - the cars just didn't work. We got two of them for Christmas, and loaded them with new batteries. After checking, and rechecking, the batteries and how they were seated, the racers still did not work. We went out, bought another set of new batteries, and still nothing.

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.

I ordered this toy as a gift for my grandson. It doesn't work. I have put the number of batteries it required and it moved about 6 inches. I have e-mailed Three Blue Heron where it came from and haven't received a shipping label to mail it back. I have asked twice for one.
