Power Wheels Wild Thing Review
Kids have always loved toys. Many different variations of toys have been introduced over the years. Some of these toys have such fancy features that are not only joyful for the kids, but also impressive to an adult.
Kids like playing with almost all kinds of toys. Cars, dolls, action figures, doctor sets, building blocks or Lego, etc. But one of the toys that have had a special place in children’s hearts is the toy cars.
Now if we say toy car that can mean a lot of things. We’re talking about the ridable and drivable ones in this case. There are many ridable toy cars available in the market. All with different looks and features.
Fisher Price makes a few variations of these ridable toy cars. Some were designed to mimic real life cars, and for others all we can say is that, the manufacturers went wild with their designs.
Yes, we are talking about the Fisher Price Power Wheels Wild Thing.
Who Is This For?
The Power Wheels Wild Thing is meant for ages 5 to 10 years. It has a weight limit of 100 pounds, and we recommend kids should only ride the Wild Thing under strict adult supervision.
Kids are bound to have a blast spinning around on the Wild Thing. This is such a cool Power Wheels vehicle! Starting from its rugged look to its exciting spinning feature, it gives these young kids a nice thrill and joyful experience. Kids will love taking this on the driveway, sidewalk, and the grass, and get fun off-roading experience.
What Is Included?
The Power Wheels Wild Thing comes in an awesome “wild” looking box. You get a bunch of stuff inside the box. The Wild Thing does not come fully assembled, so you have to assemble the parts yourself.
Inside the box we have, the frame of the Wild Thing that comes attached with the seat. The two wheels come separately inside the box and need to be attached. The 12 Volt Battery is also included in the package so you do not need to buy that separately. It also comes with a 12-V charger to recharge the battery.
Overview of Features
The Wild Thing comes with some highly impressive features. This amazing Ride-on toy comes with dual joysticks option for the kids to steer the Wild Thing forward, backward, and spin around in circles.
But you don't have to worry about taking spins or curves too tightly, as it has a built-in stability sensor that helps prevent tipping over. With a little practice, your kids will get the hang of the joystick controls and will be surprising you (or shocking you, if you prefer) with tricks such as spinning 360 degrees in very little time.
The 12 Volt Power Wheels rechargeable battery is able to ensure almost 2 hours of non-stop riding. The seat is spacious and comfortable, allowing your kids to play on it for hours without hurting their bottom.
It features four forward speed settings, from two, three, four, or five miles per hour. It also comes with parental control for the speed settings, so you can choose at what speed your kids ride the Wild Thing.
This is possible due to the Smart Drive located underneath the seat. This helps to ensure that kids can master the controls before they end up going too fast.
The wheels come a nice tread that allows the Wild Thing to do some off-roading. The Wild Thing has a top speed of five miles per hour going forward, and up to three miles per hour going reverse.
How to Install the Power Wheels Wild Thing
The Power Wheels Wild Thing does not come fully assembled. Some assembly is required, but it is not difficult at all. You will require a Phillips screwdriver, which is not included in the package.
At first you need to attach the two wheels to the frame of the Wild Thing. Make sure to buy a Phillips Screwdriver before you start assembling it, as it will make your job much easier.
Then you install the battery into the Wild thing. The package includes a charger for the battery. You need to charge the 12 V battery before installing it into the Wild Thing.
Plug the charger into a wall outlet and charge the battery for at least 18 hours before first use. After that, 14 hours of charge per use of the vehicle should be enough. After attaching the wheels and the battery, you’re good to go!
Power Wheels are now all the rage. Fisher Price produces many different types of power wheels. The Power Wheels Wild Thing has another variant called the Power Wheels Wild Thing Recall. A few of the other most popular alternatives are, Razor Crazy Cart Shift - 12V Electric Drifting on amazon, Rollplay 12V Nighthawk Electric Ride-On on amazon and Huffy Green Machine on amazon.
These alternatives are more like cars, and are equally high quality and fun to ride. So in case your kids don’t like the two-wheel and joystick experience of the Wild Thing, you always have 4 wheel, realistic looking rideable toy car options.
