Product Description

It's like magic, but you don't need to be a magician to get it to work. The PlasmaCar in red from PlaSmart is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power, by harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. It's so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface. The PlasmaCar is adult-friendly, too. For starters, it doesn't require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement. It requires no batteries, no power-cells, no liquid fuel and it's quiet as well. The only sound you'll hear is the sound of its wheels. It provides kids with plenty of exercise, more so than most toys. And the PlasmaCar is engineered to be absolutely safe when used appropriately; it's been extensively tested, and it meets or exceeds all significant international safety standards.

Features

  • Non-slip foot pads.
  • Foam sheath on steering column.
  • Small raised front wheels to prevent tipping and damage from curbs.

We loved the idea and it reminded me of similar cars on the roller rink in the 70's. The ONLY problem was the bolt that connects the steering wheel to the front wheel. The instructions stated "tighten as much as possible". We did just that 4 times but alas within 4-5 turns (the movement used to create forward motion) the steering wheel became loose and left the plasma car floundering.

    Comments about PlaSmart 1006248 PlasmaCar - Red:

    very creatively designed riding toy. It is completely kid powered, but no pedalling.High tech look, and even though it is made of plastic,it appears to be very durable. I purchased for a grandchild because I had two customers who were very pleased with them.

    Didn't go as fast as we expected it to go. You really have to move the steering wheel back and forth rigorously just to get it to move. Kids arms were tired.

        We put this together easy enough but our son hasn't figured out yet how to make it go. And as adults, we can't get on and figure it out for him.
        We will believe in the awards and continue to think it will be a fun toy.

            We have had 2 of these for several years now. They have held up to many kids of all ages and sizes using them. All the kids love them. Very fun.
            Plus they do not take up a lot of storage space in your garage.
            I picked up 2 of these for my nephews this year since they have really enjoyed the ones I keep at my house for my kids.

            Comments about PlaSmart 1006248 PlasmaCar - Red:

            Just as I expected the name brand PlasmaCar was far better than the knock off brands.

            Lived up to it's lively expectations.

            Easy for a younger child to use. The older ones even liked it. I guess no one is too old.

            Yay, not batteries needed.

            Drawback, which was not a big one, had to put it together.

            Suggestions would be to have to retailer carry more choices of colors for the consumer to choose from. Knowing there are many available to choose from and only one that the retailer sold was the only drawback.

            Comments about PlaSmart 1006248 PlasmaCar - Red:

            This is a very fun toy that I got for my kids, but it's so fun that I also play with myself! The downside is that it can tip over sometimes at a certain angle. Also, it was a little hard to put together - requires a lot of banging, and a lot of strength for tightening. It should have just came already built. The other downside is that the wheels are plastic and has a sharp edge which can scratch up wood floors. It even says on their site that it's no recommended for use on wood floors. So keep that in mind before making this purchase. I think the retail price is kind of high, but I was able to get this on sale. Overall, very happy with this purchase and recommend it!

              Comments about PlaSmart 1006248 PlasmaCar - Red:

              This was the best purchase for this Christmas season. The car is amazing!
              It easily supports this 170 pound body and is so much fun.(I opened and test drive it)
              It is advertised as being able to hold up to 220 pounds.it performs best on the smooth floor.
              The movement of the plasmacar reminds me of the bumpercar ride at the fair. It moves forward and backward quickly allowing the driver to make tight turns with no problem. This product is tons of fun for children and adults with a little time on their hands!
