You probably have seen my posts about trying to teach Eva to ride a bike. That endeavor has met with frustration and tears, usually on both our parts. So when I saw the opportunity to review a PlasmaCar I was very excited. Here was a simple vehicle that Eva could use to scoot herself about just by using her hands on the steering wheel or when she wants to, by using her feet. When it arrived at our house I wanted to put it together right away. We had been getting many toys and prizes all at once and it was Eva’s birthday so there was a major glut of “things” and we spoiled her so much that she got a little lippy and lost the privilege of riding the PlasmaCar right away. We were both bummed out over that. But after a few days we were able to start playing with the PlasmaCar together and we’ve been having fun ever since.
I make a slight mistake in this video. The maximum weight for riders is 220lbs on Flat surfaces, not 230lbs.
A PlasmaCar is amazing. I don’t know the science behind it or the engineering that went into the creation of the toy but it is very cool. Kids move the steering wheel back and forth, side to side and the car moves forward. They can spin it around and go in reverse and pretty much go wherever they want very easily.
Here is some more detail on the toy from the PlaSmart website.
The PlasmaCar, by PlaSmart, is a mechanical marvel that makes use of the most inexhaustible source of energy; kid-power.
One of the world’s best-selling children’s ride-on-toys, the PlasmaCar’s unique and award-winning design requires no batteries, pedals, gears, or electrical parts to propel the car; you simply turn the steering wheel, and away you go! The PlasmaCar harnesses the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force and friction.
The toy is solidly constructed out of very durable plastics. It has a very cool futuristic design and look and it is just plain fun to ride. It is now sold on five continents and can be found in over 50 countries. You can find PlaSmart on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Flickr. You can also find them on the PlaSmart website and the PlasmaCar website.
Our final impressions are that the toy is a fun one for kids of all ages. As the PlaSmart company says about the PlasmaCar, Pure Energy, Pure Fun. That is so true. The car is a ton of fun to ride, it is easy enough for kids over 3 to use and strong enough for adults (up to 227, ahem, I mean 220lbs to use). Putting together the car was so simple. Instructions were a snap and laid everything out there. No all night assembly frustration there. So, if you want to get your kids outdoors more. This is a vehicle that will transport them.
Disclosure: I was sent a PlasmaCar to review. The opinions about the product are 100% my own. Eva’s comments and thoughts are only attributable to her and her opinion cannot be swayed.
