Boys love remote radio controlled vehicles. Dads do too!  The Tonka XT Ricochet Trickster R/C by Hasbro puts the controls in the palm of your hands and puts you behind the wheel  for making wild and crazy stunts. The vehicle has large tires and is two sided freestylin stunts bumping and going never easier.  With a move of the controller you can drive across the room, up and over small objects, or flips when it gets to something it can’t go over and continues in the opposite direction. It runs super fast and zips around the room.

The remote runs on 5 AA batteries (not included) and the vehicle comes with a 3.6 V rechargeable battery. A plug is used from the remote to the car to recharge.  Charge time’s are quick for a half hour charge you get 10-20 minutes of play which isn’t nearly enough time for kids they can spend down time building ramps and setting up obstacles courses and its great when you have more than 1 cause you can set up races. The stunts are super cool and my 6 yr old loves it. The remote is a bit difficult to work for me but for my son gets it pretty easy. My 3 yr old also played a bit but got frustrated with the controller which is understandable because it’s recommended for ages 6 and up. The vehicle comes green on one side and blue on the other.

The signature Trick Buzz Saw spinning move is super cool but it’s a bit hard to come by. Takes a practice to remember how to move the controllers but it’s not the worst thing because it’s still moving at a fast rate of speed and that’s super cool according to my 6 yr old.

Recommeded for children 6 and up
runs on 5 AA Batteries (not included) and a rechargeable (included)
Msrp: $24.99 sale:$19.99 Walmart
Final thought: This is a great little R/C vehicle for kids that does super cool stunts and quick on the path. We rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

    It’s amazing how fast the kids can work the controller faster than the adults. I know our boys love the super fast cars and bonus that it does tricks as well.
