What It Is
Luigi and his kart racer from the Mario Kart Wii video game have popped out of the game and into the real world with the Mario Kart Wii: Mini Radio Control Kart, Luigi from Goldie. This is a fully functioning, 4.5-inch remote control racer. The control is also the charger for the vehicle and it takes about 15 minutes to charge.
Is It Fun?
Luigi and the kart look just like they do in the video game and kids will have a blast racing it around their house with the radio controller. Since the controller is also the kart's charger, kids can take it to a friend's house and don't have to worry about remembering a separate charger.
Who It’s For
Mini Radio Control Kart Luigi is for Mario Kart Wii fans, ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Additional Mini Radio Control Karts are available with Mario, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong racers. Each is on a different frequency so that multiple kids can race their karts together. Each is sold separately.
We've reviewed some of the other R/C Karts and found the range to be about 10 feet. We don't know if the technology has been improved on with the Luigi Kart but we were able to drive it from about 30 feet away.
Three AA batteries are required but not included. This R/C toy works on hard, flat surfaces and short carpet or rugs.
