Driving Development

Most children could set their new adventure in  numerous ways, infused with their imaginations, and this power wheels dune racer.  Operating a real deal vehicle offers role playing of grown up aspect, and can help introduce independence, self-confidence and great accomplishment.  Motor skills can become sharper too, along with balance, body awareness, and coordination. Kids can begin to learn the basic concepts of cause and effect, as they begin to learn more on how to power the vehicle, and discover how it moves backward, forward, start, steer and stop.

What’s in the box?

Of course, it comes with the main ingredient; the Power Wheels’ Dune Racer, 12V battery, 12V dune racer battery, and the owner’s manual.

What is the max age limit?

Some say that people as old as 40 have given this bad boy a try at the referenced height of 5’3.  That works just fine for them, but of course from our real like vehicle experience, it’s a tad bit slow for us adults, but super-fast for kids.

Are the tires plastic or rubber?

They are plastic and very noisy!  They can sometimes have difficulty with proper traction on regular asphalt, but do very well on rough terrain, grass, and mud.

What’s the average mileage on this thing?

It’s perfect!!  Gets you a few times around the block per single charge before it dies.

What I love:

-It seats two perfectly.  My daughter is 2 years old, 37 inches tall and 37 lbs.  My son is 4 ½ years old, about 48 inches tall and 40 lbs.  The two of them fit amazing well in this little dune.  My son can’t really reach the pedal that well, so he isn’t able to drive it though, but he doesn’t care because he LOVES being the passenger.

It’s super powerful.  Even at high or low speeds, this thing can challenge sharp hills, whether grassy, paved or covered in leaves.  My daughter drives around into the leaf piles next to our house, and she has run right over some smaller downed tree trunks too.

Battery life is beyond amazing.  Even with two of my kids riding at high or low speeds, the battery can last nearly 2 hours.  The battery unit area is at the back of the dune racer, and it’s super-duper easy to remove the battery to plug in the charger.

It looks great,  and it doesn’t look like a baby toy.
