T28955 - Moon Thumper Light-Up Remote Control Stunt Vehicle
When I first saw these cars on air, they were just about to sell out, so I quickly grabbed the phone and ordered 2 of them for my grandsons. When they arrived I opened the box and was very disappointed by the packaging, but I thought OK it's the cars that are the gift. I opened the boxes and was overwhelmed by the smell!!! I left them out overnight thinking they just needed to be aired out, no luck. I put them outside thinking the fresh air might do the trick, still no luck. I thought "I can't give these to the boys with them smelling like skunk no matter how cute they are", so I sent them back today. If that smell wasn't a problem, they would be a perfect gift for my grandsons.
Broke in 10 minutes
My Mom purchased this for my Friends 8 year old son. It ran well and he had a great time with it for about 10 minutes. He dropped the controller by mistake and it broke the antenna off. After that the remote would not control the car. I was very disappointed and so was he. If the antenna would have been made of a thicker material it wouldn't have broken. Definitely not worth the money.
I purchased this car last Christmas for my son. Now, a year later I plan to order another as my youngest son enjoys playing with it too and sharing one is a problem. Love the fact that all it needs is recharging when the battery runs down. Yes, the packaging was disappointing to me. If you are purchasing to give to someone you'll need to find a different box or place in a gift bag after removing the initial packaging. But because it was for my son and I wanted him to use it on Christmas day , I completely removed it from the packaging and charged it up Christmas Eve night. It does not "right" itself when it flips over as consistently as demonstrated in the presentation, but that's ok with me. We (yes, I probably love it more the my sons) love playing with it in the dark because of the flashing lights. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
fun little car
I bought this car for my husband to play with the grandkids and dogs. It is so much fun everyone that sees it loves it. Even my 2 year old granddaughter can control it. She laughs because it is so fun. The dogs run around chasing it and barking they even love it. We have had it for over a year and it is still going strong. If it goes dead just plug it in and it is ready to go. I have had no problem with it.
I got what I ordered!
I saw the demonstration of this car and I decided to buy it for my son's 4th birthday. It is his first remote control car and he loves it! I thought the presentation was just fine, it's what in the box that matters. .Not to mention, it was $23.00. I'm sorry you can't beat that price for a super cute remote control car that lights up and flips all around. Yes the batteries do die if you are using it constantly but it's super easy to charge! I thought the quality of the car was great to.
I did have one issue with it though. The smell of the tires is a bit overwhelming. They smell like a skunk and my house did smell pretty bad so I had to put it in the closet for now, but I'm sure the smell will fade in time.
Overall, I got what I paid for which was a cool car for my toddler and he thought it was awesome! If you have a young kid who wants a remote control car but you don't want to spend a lot, than this is perfect!
I purchased this toy as a Christmas present, but after reading the poor reviews I decided to check it out. This car does everything it is advertised doing in video. It is fun and colorful. The pets love it!
I have not experienced any of the problems the other reviewers mentioned. If run on carpeting and it flips over, it does have trouble righting itself. But not on smooth flooring. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the car is a bit difficult to control. But that's because it is a fast-moving toy. Young children might have problems controlling it, but other than that the video presentation is accurate.
This car is poorly made and the charger doesn't even fit on the car. Packaging was poor also. Will be returning.
I opened the box anf as I ordered 2 of these there was 2 different boxes. I was so upset with the presentation of these cars. They were in a horrible old looking cardboard box with tape all over the place holding the boxes together. For what these cost they should have come in a nice presentation box. I am really angry here. Plus I took one out of the box and charged it up. It was terrible. Very cheaply made. I am calling customer service about these cars. I can't give anyone this for xmas!!!............don't waste you money. Do not buy
I am very unhappy with this remote control car. It is poorly made and poorly package. And the lights on the wheels hardly worked at all. I recharged the battery it drove the same barely at all, I am so disappointed. Save your money don't order this car. I ordered two and the second car run just has bad. I ordered many thing from Qvc and this is the only product I had a problem with. To bad they looked so cute on tv.
Does not perform as described
As far as I can tell, all this toy does is turn in circles. It is cute and colorful, but it does not right itself when flipped and it is virtually impossible to make it do anything but turn in circles. Unfortunately, I'll be returning this, which looked like so much fun when demonstrated on air.
