I gotta say this car is so much fun. I bought this for my now 11 year-old daughter and I played with it before we gave it to her on her birthday...yeah I didn't want to give it up. It was so much fun to play with. It goes fast, easy to control, I love how even if it flips over you can transform it and keep going. It looks cool, holds a good charge (though I wish it would charge a bit quicker) and is easy to control. She loves it and so do I. If you are looking for a good starting car (or heck really any kind of car) for your kid (or you) then look no further.
