My 4 yr old(5 in feb) son got this for christmas and it was such a hit. It is a great size and it really has some power, a couple times he takes off so fast that he does a wheely and loves every minute of it. I also have a 6 and 7 year old and they all ride it with no problem. I did tons of research before deciding on this one and i couldn’t be happier with my purchase. He loves to play cops and robbers with his siblings, loves the 2 speed options, and loves that it goes in reverse.
my 5 year old son has been begging me to get this for him for 6 months. To make it special and since i am a cop i decided to equip it with real led emergency lights. The video is of the motorcycle right after all the lights were installed, but before i put the graphics and markings of the law enforcement agency i work for on it. I will tell you i had to take a lot of this motorcycle apart to install the lights and switches. In doing so, i found it to be of above average quality and if you go to the manufacturer’s website you can order individual replacemt parts at excellent pricingi will definitely be recommending this motorcycle and other 12v ride on cars from this company inventory to anyone looking to buy one for their kidif you are interested in purchasing real led emergency lights to make your kids ride on car/cycle look like the real deal, i highly recommend speed tech lights, feniex, whelen, and sound off signal. This bike was done with speed tech and feniex lights(in case you were wondering i did not put red lightheads in the round red lights on front because my son requested blue/amber for the rear and blue (blue/white) for the sides and front. Basically if you are looking for a good quality 12v police motorcycle ride on toy for your child, this is the best one you can get. Well worth the moneyai hope this review helps.
Just got done putting this together for xmas morning. When i first opened box, i did notice a small grey piece that looked like it had broken off so something lying at bottom of box. As it turned out, this was in fact the case as a piece of the tail pipe was broken off. Definitely minor enough to not warrant sending back, but i will be calling customer service to report issue. Now that the days of toys r us are behind us, these are the issue that we have to deal with when ordering ride ons on line. The bike went together relatively easy, but i also have put many of these things together for my kids. I will say that the manual was not that helpful as it pertained to the sticker placement. It actually had no guidance at all, but i just pulled up the pictures online. I will provide an update after xmas to report how kids like.
Since this motorcycle is not the power wheel brand name i was a little worried about the quality but it is very well made and easy to assemble. The lights flash and it has three different generic sirens that you child can choose from this motorcycle definitely has a lot more power than our 12v power wheel jeep we have. 5 or 5 mph both of my sons ages 7 and 5 ride it together.
If the connection from the front to the back was a little more durable it would get a 5 star all day. But i still have to say my 5 yr old boy who ways 45 lbs boogies around are house grass and pavement chasing our poor very large dog all day long and has a blast on it. As a sheriff myself my son loves to put me in jail. So he has all the bells and whistles and the bike just tops everything off. It goes at a perfect speed even has two settings if your child wants to slow it down. Drives in revers and has a siren. I’m also a master plumber and putting it together took some time but wasn’t to bad. He used to drive in the little girls jeep across the street and look very sad cause he could never drive but know he is they envy of the neighborhood. A woman who lives a few streets over and is on the town pd saw us walking the dog while my son was on the bike loved it so much she was getting it for her son. Probably one of the best if not the best toy i have ever got him.
My 6 and 9 year old grandchildren are way too big for the normal electric cars. I did considerable research and discovered this gem. Make certain that your children start out in the low speed range to learn the controls. After about 1 hour they are ready to go high speed.
Bought this for my sons 8th birthday and it was a major hit. Big enough for a 55lb 8 year old or his 30lb 4 year old brother. Got it together no problem, charged up no problem. Kids rode it none stop for 4 hours before it started to die. We have a very uneven back yard and this thing had no issues driving everywhere as long as it was on the higher setting of 5 mph. If in the lower setting it would still go but tended to get stuck more in up hill areas. All sounds worked although was quieter than i expected (no disappointed on not having overly loud sirens) i would definitely recommend this to everyone with kiddos.
My 3 and 5 year old drive it so much i had to get a 2nd battery. It has 2 speeds which are awesome. Absolutely nothing negative to say about it. It has the power to get up small hills and my boys love using the lights and sirens. Pretty easy to put together. The instructions were simple enough even for me. I would purchase it again in a new york minute.
Very good working toy for my 4yr old. We got it for him when he was 3 and he did well on it then too. Only thing i wish was that the sounds were louder. Maybe i can wire that myself though haha. Putting it together was easy enough. Fyi the back has storage, but the sides don’t. Kids left it in the rain and it doesn’t work now.
Craftsmanship of this bike is mediocre. Parts had to be bent by hand to fit properly. Once built my kids enjoyed the bike for less than 2 days when the slow/fast switch failed to engage fast mode again. Fast would work in reverse but not in forward. Checked through the vehicle to see if something had failed but couldn’t find anything wrong. Overall not pleased with the build quality or the reliability. Definitely will be contacting them for a solution. Update:their customer service department was quick to respond and sent over a detailed repair manual for my specific issue. A fuse located inside the batteries protective shield had popped. Fortunately they send multiple replacement parts in the original packaging, which included fuses.
It really isn’t that big of a deal. It teaches them how to balance themselves. Good luck finding anything out there like it, because i tried. Fyi, you could alter the bike to look like a regular dresser fairly easily with the right paint for very little if you were trying to match dad, grandpa or even grandma’s bike. The stickers don’t have to be put on it. You can even put harley stickers from amazon (like we did – chroma 5507 harley-davidson domed emblem decal) if you want. I’d also suggest purchasing the joyin toy spooktacular creations deluxe police outfit.
