Bought this for my 17month old son. Yo this thing is awesome. I drive it around and he chases it. It runs on 2 AA's for the car and its still going after almost a month on 2 batteries in the car. The remote requires 1 AA. And same goes for the remote. My son has now torn the plastic sheating off of the antenna on the car and even the wire underneath is bent in a way so I don't think it would puncture the skin. I am still comfortable letting him play with it. The only feature I would alter is the ability to turn down the volume of the noises the car makes. It starts to get annoying when he bonks the driver on the head and the car yells "VROOM VROOOOOM". Hence why I drive the car away from the boy. When you think about it though. I hate the noise because I'm keeping score if he gets it he wins. If I keep it away from him I'm winnin. Lol. But hey it's a fun toy.
