Wonderful gift! This car is so easy to work as there are only two buttons. My one year old has figured it out and giggles while it soars backwards in circles. It's surprisingly off-road-able! It can climb over light blankets and other thin things on the ground. This requires batteries so don't forget them!!! They were easy to install (once purchased!). The bright colors are fun and the music/lights are wonderful. It's a little on the loud side, but bearable. The race car driver makes noise when you click him into place... This makes my son laugh.
