    I had bought this as a gift for my 3 yr old nephew. He was so excited to get the remote control car. We installed the 9V battery in the remote and 3AA batteries in the car. We were ready for action. The problem is that it wouldnt quite work for more than a second. With an eager 3 year old waiting, we opened it up, double checked the batteries and all were new and properly positioned. Still it only worked for a second. A huge disappointment. Great idea. Soft toy, easy to operate. But it just didnt work.

    I got this for my 4-year-old who had interest in remote control things, but had never operated one. He LOVED it!! He could operate it right away and the price was unbelievable! It has worked magnificently. It even does pretty well on carpet.
    We liked it so much, we ordered another one just like it for one of his friend’s birthdays and he liked it too!
    The only negative thing I have to say about it is for the parent-the batteries are EXTREMELY difficult to get to and install. I was afraid I was going to break the chassis to get to them and put them in. I am dreading the day the batteries die because it is such a hassle to replace them. The instructions are too simple: “Remove screw and install batteries.” In reality, you have to unscrew about 8 screws, pop off the rubber outer part of the car, then pop off the hard plastic chassis plate to access the battery compartment. I couldn’t get this off; I could only lift the rear end up high enough to slide a battery in part way, then while holding it up, take a screw driver and poke the battery into place….x3. Not fun.
    So far, the batteries have lasted a month though, with nearly every day use.

    My son had been asking for a remote control car for ages so we decided on this one as a starter. He was so excited when the box arrived, but when we installed the batteries and tried to play with it, it just didn’t work. Kind of went off and on, stop and go–as if there wasn’t clear communication between the remote control and the car. We were very disappointed. Also, this car only turns in one direction.
