Barbie Power Wheels Ford Mustang
a child's dream. Give them a car they are allowed to drive!
Wheels Fisher Price have many different models to choose from.
My daughter got the Barbie Ford Mustang for her birthday this
year. There are some things that make being a kid extra fun and
that is a power wheels car.
When I looked
at the box I thought of all the pieces, screws, stickers, confusing
directions, the frustration of it all! Well, total assembly took
only 45 minutes!
Now some may
be able to accomplish this task faster. I am not inclined to putting
things together...at all. It was not my ability that made this
insurmountable task possible. It was the impressive easy to read
directions and labeling of all parts included! Boy, was I a hero
when there the car sat before me and my little ones who thought
this was never going to happen! A personal thank you goes out
to Power Wheels for helping me impress my children!
not too many gadgets to play with but the few features are really
fun. A radio that requires 3 AA batteries lights up the dash and
makes the horn sounds. Plus the radio lights up and plays cool
tunes. When you push the key it makes an engine sound. There is
reverse, that should be introduced after going forward has been
mastered, low speed and high speed, again introduced only after
going slow has been mastered.
many people in your car is dangerous and to help stop this from
happening, there is a weight limit of 130 pounds and the car will
not run if that limit is exceeded. The 12 volt battery that comes
with the car is equipped with a thermal fuse that will trip itself
and shut down the vehicle if it is overloaded. In order to restart,
you need to wait for 25 seconds then push down on the pedal to
drive again. Some other nice safety features are the makeshift
seatbelts for both seats. This really just encourages the idea
of safety since they fasten with velcro.
need to worry about your child not being able to stop in time.
The car stops once the pressure is released from the one pedal
that makes the car go. Not to mention that there are only two
speeds in the Mustang: 2.5 miles per hour and 5 miles per hour.
We aren't talking 0-60 in 10 seconds even if it is Mustang. However,
in order to go 5 mph, you must remove the screw from the shifter.
It can be reinserted at any time to lock out the high speed option.
As a mom, it is nice to know that not only is the car safe but
that the children that ride in it will be encouraged to practice
and develop safety habits.
need supervision when they play with their car. Although you may
go over what a safe driving environment is a thousand times, nothing
is better than your eyes checking it out first and then sticking
around to make sure it stays safe. Plus, take this time to enjoy
the memories being made. The next car your child will be driving
will not be this safe and you won't be able to just stand on the
sidewalk and smile and clap. Almost guaranteed.
