I took one look at this and knew I was going to have to give it a try. The main selling point for me was that this car can be used on multiple terrains. It goes on land, water, and snow. Did you read that? It goes on SNOW!!!! Wooo hoooo, finally a snow sport I might enjoy.
This car comes equipped with everything you need to play, EXCEPT a screwdriver. If you buy this for a Christmas gift make sure you have a screwdriver with a small head for Christmas morning. The battery for this car has to charge for 5 hours before driving it for the first time. You may want to carefully remove the battery and charge it on Christmas Eve and then wrap it up. Hey, I’m just trying to help your Christmas morning run smoothly…learn from my mistakes
After we charged the car up we took it for a spin around the house. Now, we have all hardwood and linoleum except for one room which has carpet. The car only goes sideways on the hardwood and linoleum, but works like a champ on the carpet. However, this car is really meant for the outdoors so I took it for a spin on the snow. Here’s how it worked:
I was very happy with how the car performed. It was fast on the snow and I can only imagine how fast it will be on water. It will be fun to give it a try on the lake in the Spring.
