PlasmaCar Review

Now that warmer weather is here, it is time to get back outside with the kids. They need the fresh air and sunlight, and especially to be more active, and I definitely need to be more active as well.

I don't just want them outside walking around bored though, so we need something fun and active that we can do together.

I recently found just the thing. PlasmaCar is perfect.

PlasmaCar is amazing. It is a ride on toy that does not require batteries or electricity of any kind. It is 100% kid powered. What makes PlasmaCar really unique though is that it does not need to be peddled either.

PlasmaCar is propelled by turning the wheel back and forth. It has a front wheel that is shorter than the rest, so that it only touches the ground when the wheels are turned, and that is what makes the car go. It is really neat.

I love that it is has 4 wheels(besides the very front wheel), so there is no need to be concerned with balancing. It makes it so much sturdier.

This is VERY sturdy, and durable too. It holds up to 220 pounds. That means that I, or even my husband can ride it. That is so impressive. Most toys like this barely hold 50-60 pounds. I love that I won't have to worry about my son getting too heavy for this.

My little boy will be 6 in July. He is a pretty big boy for his age and weights a little over 60 pounds already. On most ride ons, he would already be too heavy.

Since he is Autistic, he is not fully able to ride on anything too complicated or dangerous either, so I especially love how easy and safe this is. It is very low to the ground, and no brakes to worry about, he can just use his feet. It would be very hard to tip over, and hard to go too fast.

My son LOVES his PlasmaCar. And yes it's red, red is his favorite color. We even got a red SUV when we bought it last year because he walked right over to it and kissed it. Thankfully it was the model we wanted(we were surrounded by only that model).

He got on it as soon as I assembled it(so easy to assemble, it is mostly done already).

And although you can use it on any hard surface(not recommended for hardwood floors) even inside, he had so much more fun when he got to take it outside and really let lose.

He got the hang of it super fast, and was able to do it himself which was really cool. He had so much fun. It made me so happy to see him having such a great time.

When we were able to pry him off of it, my 18 month old girl swooped right in(although this is recommended for ages 3+. I was right there and she didn't actually "ride" it). She had a blast sitting on the big kid toy.

Hubby even took a few turns on it when the kids were inside. I wish I could have gotten some pictures of that, it was so funny. He is really the biggest kid of them all, and he loves the PlasmaCar.

This is a really awesome toy. I love that it is all about inertia, centrifugal force and friction instead of gears and peddles. It is so smart, safe and spectacular. Plus the design is so sleek.

All the kids in the neighborhood are always hanging around staring and hoping for a turn. Everyone loves the PlasmaCar.

If you are looking for the perfect gift for any child weather for a special occasion or just because, the PlasmaCar is perfect. Get out and get active with PlasmaCar.
