Power Wheels Wild Thing Cons

- The car makes a lot of noise while it is turned on and so it can really be distracting to you as a parent in case you want to focus on other things as your child is playing with it.

- It is very hard to keep in a straight line and so it can be very frustrating for the child when they need to move the car in very narrow spaces.

- The seat belt does not do a good job in holding the child in and so it can be very useless for their safety if they are moving at high speeds.


Definitely, this wild thing for children is worth your money despite the drawbacks outlined. As a parent, you are guaranteed of your child's safety while riding it thanks to the 3 parent settings that you can use to control its speeds. It also has a 12-volt rechargeable battery which will save you the cost of purchasing replacement batteries. Your child's playtime will also be quite fun thanks to the dual joysticks that they can use to move the ride on toy forward, backward and in circles. It is surely worth giving a try, no?
