Whisper Ride Cruiser Review (Step2)

Whisper Ride Cruiser
What It Is

Preschoolers might not be old enough to drive, but they can still ride around in a cool car with the Whisper Ride Cruiser. This children's push car features realistic styling of modern cars with headlight decals, a moving steering wheel, and a honking/squeaking horn. Lift up the seat to find storage for small toys or snacks so that kids can take all their essentials with them on the go. As kids sit on the seat, they'll be strapped in by the safety buckle to keep them secure. There are two cup holders in the front, and there's a cup holder on the parent push handle. And the Whisper Wheels offer limited road noise and sound. When you're done using the Whisper Ride Cruiser, just fold the handle underneath the toy for easy storage. That also makes it easy to transport this if you want to go for a walk at the park. This is available in blue, pink, or red.

Is It Fun?
Kids will like riding around in this cool car, but parents will dread the assembly process. It's hard to put this together, and it's also a little difficult to steer. (See What to Be Aware of below.) Yet once it is put together, it will be a fun way for toddlers and preschoolers to ride around when going for a walk with mom or dad. It's a little cooler for kids than sitting in a stroller, and they'll like pretending to steer the car as parents push this from behind on a walk through the neighborhood or park.
Who It’s For
The Whisper Ride Cruiser is for toddlers ages 1.5–4 with a maximum weight limit of 50 pounds. It's ideal for kids who are too young to walk but too old for a stroller, or for any kid who just can't sit in a stroller long enough for mom and dad to take a walk. The cool car design will be a lot of fun for them as they pretend to steer the car while a parent pushes from behind.
What To Be Aware Of

This took 45 minutes and three people to assemble because the directions were really hard to follow. In step 12, you can't use a screwdriver because there are no pre-drilled holes on the part. We called Step2 customer service about this, and they suggested using a drill, even though that tool was not listed as one you would need at the beginning of the instruction manual. We actually ended up using six tools instead of only the four shown. The black-and-white pictures in the directions were very dark, and it was hard to tell which way the seat belt was going on steps 13 and 14. And on step 16, it took a lot of strength and force to tighten the piece, and we had to use a socket wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it done.

This is a push car, which means that parents will be pushing their toddler around in it. It's a little difficult to turn because there's no way to turn the wheels.

The red Whisper Ride Cruiser is available exclusively at Toys “R” Us.
