Like all PlaSmart products, the PlasmaCar is built to last: it's made from state-of-the-art, high-quality ABS plastics, rugged and durable for kids on the go. It's deceptively simple, too, both to look at and to operate. It sports six wheels, a seat, footrests, and a steering wheel. That's it. There are no pedals. No gears. And best of all-batteries are not required. To propel the PlasmaCar, you rotate the steering wheel continuously from left to right. It also works in reverse. To zoom backwards, just switch the set of four front wheels around so that the larger ones are closest to the front of the car. To stop your PlasmaCar, just cease rotating the steering wheel and, when the car slows, put your feet on the ground to bring it to a full stop-easy as pie. Think of it as a Segway for kids. The PlasmaCar can go an exhilarating but kid-safe 2.8 meters per second; that's over 10 km/h. Kids feel the need for speed-and this toy will give them exactly what they need!
