Awesome Little Racer!
This is one of my favorite mechanical toys that I've purchased from Hexbug! It is a challenge to get it to perform in certain ways unique to it's design. My cat is fascinated by it! The way it's built, even if he whacks it, it won't damage the toy. If I could have afforded it, I would have liked to have purchased the ring racer stunt park. That would have been fun to try certain tricks on. But the way it is, I have a nice flat kitchen floor with tile on it to play with it on. It also works on very tight weave commercial carpet, but not as well as on tile surfaces or laminated wood floors. It won't work on pile carpeting. It takes a while to figure out how to do certain moves with the racer and each time I play with it, I learn something new I can do with it. For me, the cost was kind of steep, but it really delivers a lot of fun. It's definitely an indoor toy. I wish I had someone who could play with me adding a second racer to the mix. That would be fun. The rechargeable battery in the toy, really charges up fast, usually in less than an hour. After playing with the racer, you ought to give the battery a 15 to 20 minute rest before you recharge it. Once again, GREAT toy!! Quite enjoyable.
