I heard about Plasma Cars when Andy was still a baby, I have to admit, I was more interested for myself, than for a growing child.
With all the video & computer games now, its really shocking to see how many kids don't have physical activity in their daily lives.
Plasma Cars are mobile fun for children 3-100 that work based off your own energy, movement & inertia.
This is a mobile toy that's won awards since its come out, that requires the plop of a bum on its seat & the wiggle of hands, nothing else, to send you racing! It holds a weight limit of a whopping 220 pounds( on a smooth surface) and 120 pounds, on a rough surface, like a bumpy road!
We got the chance to check out a plasma car of our own, Check it out!
I think he'll "get it" more when he's older, although he does know that to wiggle means to go. Hes mostly content for now to just push off & glide. Ryan certainly is too young, but he likes to sit on it & pretend!
I have to say, this is one of the coolest toys we've seen yet. Not only does it encourage activity, but as Andy shows, it can be used a few ways. Not only by the wiggle, but Andy is a "race car" in his, and sends himself flying forward with his legs behind him, while steering & adding a wiggle here & there to go a bit further. It steers like "ride on toys" do not. So even for younger children who don't get the "wiggle" as much as older ones, ti still provides entertainment & physical activity.
You can buy a Plasma Car directly for a cost of $69.95. You can also find them at retailers near you.
