What It Is
The Disney Pixar Cars 3 Infrared Remote Control Racing Hero Lightning McQueen is a car kids can control via an infrared controller. This vehicle comes in Lightning McQueen's classic paint colors, and has some special functions. There's a voice button on the infrared controller that gives you some fun sayings like "Kachow", and a button for special actions.
Is It Fun?
This is a fun car for young kids to play with because of the moving eyes, flashing lights and the two special feature buttons. Because this is remote control and not radio control, travel distance isn't as great, and this car does not fully turn in all directions. The middle throttle will propel the car to go forward, but when you pull back it goes back and to the right instead of having a reverse function.
Who It’s For
This vehicle is age graded 4+ and younger kids will like some of the special features. That being said, it's tougher to control that some radio control cars because it lacks the usual turn left and turn right options on many controllers.
What To Be Aware Of
This toy needs 6 AA batteries. Because its infrared, it works until about 25-30 feet from the controller and the controller needs a clear line of sight to have the car function. If you are playing in very bright light, it could affect the functionality as with any infrared toy. Younger kids might have problems getting this car to change directions because no full left/right turning feature on the controller.
