This RC car is fun and easy to drive. My kids love it. It comes with two batteries which is awesome. Its held up to a lot of rough driving and tumbling. Haven't tried it in water yet but will update once we take it out on a rainy day. Kids will love driving it through puddles. Kids dream come true!!!
I BOUGHT 2 OF THESE TRUCKS; ONE FOR MY 6YR OLD GRAND DAUGHTER AND HER FATHER (he had monster trucks when he was a child and we had a wonderful time.. remembering led me to search and look for a quality monster truch)
I HIT THE JACKPOT !! THESE TRUCKS ARE AWESOME!!! THE FAMILY ENJOYED PLAYING WITH THEM. WE PLAYED TAG, FOLLOW THE LEADER... AND A LOT OF OTHER GAMES WITH THE R/C MONSTER TRUCKS AT THE CENTER OF OUR FUN. I HAD NOT SEEN MY FAMILY FOR (3) MONTHS BECAUSE OF COVID-19.
I COULD HAVE MAILED THEM BUT WANTED TO SEE THE EXPRESSION ON MY GRAND DAUGHTER'S FACE.. THE EXPERIENCE WAS 'PRICELESS'.
I bought this for my sons and they've given it a thorough testing in the last week. It has been in the pool three times, went down the stairs twice, and they've took it through the roughest terrain that we could find. The truck handled great over grass, rocks, and even a sand hill. It is still running like new, even after all the tumbles it has taken.
My twin 5 yo boys love these! So much better than in-store RC Cars of the same price. I would say given the price, it is more of a 4.5 start item but I am rounding up to be fair to the manufacturer because of all the value these have.
