I admit it. My kids have Powerwheels. They love them, and it’s really fun to watch them zip around the yard. But let’s be honest. I want them to be more active, and sitting in a motorized vehicle doesn’t exactly achieve the energy burn-off that I’m hoping to achieve. Because I’m a great mom who wants her kids to have a blast outside, but I also want them to nap. Pushing an accelerator does not get them to nap.
When I was a kid, our church had open gym times, and they had these awesome ride on toys that moved when the rider made a back and forth motion. They were so fun! I set out looking for something like that for my kids, and I found just the thing. PlasmaCar!
When the PlasmaCar arrived, my husband got to work assembling it while I put groceries away. By the time I rounded the corner into the living room, he was done. Easy as pie! Check out how cool the PlasmaCar looks:
Uh, yeah. My kids were instantly in love. They call it their “scooter”, and they have a BLAST riding on it!
Basically how it works is you just move the steering handles back and forth, and the motion propels you forward. It’s pretty stinkin’ awesome.
There’s tons of colors, too, so you can get one that’s just right for your rider. The PlasmaCar retails for various prices online, but Amazon has it for $55.
Want to win one of your very own? Your kids will love you, promise.
