bought this 4 my 4 year old son not happy with this item at all was not easy to assemble was a screw missin the screws tht were there didnt line up in the holes correctly and it moves far to slow my son is bored of just sittin there waitin to get some where
Bought as Christmas presents for our 2 grandsons - they love them. Would have given it top rating but assembly and operating instructions are poor. As a reasonable DIYer, I managed to put them together - the operating procedures are largely intuitive but for anyone more reliant on printed instructions, could be difficult. Come on Maplin, a decent product needs better documentation.
a good toy for the money
My little 3 year old boy loves it! but we cant find the charger can i buy another one please moderator note: If you contact our technical team either via email, phone or the forums (details can be found in the contact us section) our team should be able to help find the appropriate charger for you.
Bought one in May 2011 and my Grandson loved it. problem was it died after 6 weeks. Got the second car but the steering column snapped after about three weeks but the shop were great and found a replacement. Problem is that this one has also died.Shame.
excellent product, my 4 year old son is enjoying hours of fun using the the go kart. the battery charge last for days !!
...bought and end of line one and received, put it all together BUT when the last bit remained (the seat), found out that the holes for the screws were too big hence when lifting up the car from the handle on the seat, it popped off! basically the screw holes were butchered and the screw cap too small...so put my DIY hat on and found two screws with fatter and broader caps and also had to do a bit of jiggery pokery to make existing holes more compatible and in line with the use of a drill .. now its perfect! i suppose to save 10 quid was always gonna be a risk but it cost me nothing to repair although i could have returned as the seat was a safety risk with the possibility of it falling off whilst being used - but overall a really nifty kart for the price (49quid) ... i suppose and my 2 year old loves it! if i can sort out the traction issues - i suppose u could place some sticker type flat thingy on the rear tires to provide added grip - if i find that solution, will post it!
Good value for money -easy to put together
awaiting my delivery, maplin staff were really helpful; i'm just wondering as my son is nearly 2 and taller than average, whether it will be too small!? but then it does say for ages 3+ so let's see!
It's a great toy for the price. It clearly states that it is for ages 3 - 8 years, but my little 2 year old boy loves it! The speed is just right for small children, about slow walking pace for an adult walking along side it, however I would not recommend this cart for children over the age of 6 or 7 unless they are smaller than the average child.
The cart arrives mostly assembled with a little light assembly required to finish it off. Once assembled, you need to open the battery compartment at the rear to connect the battery terminals up before you can charge it. The cart is powered by a small motor and gearbox connected to the rear right wheel and is 1 wheel drive. This cart will have traction problems on moist or dewy grass that is not level.
Overall I would recommend this car for small children, but do not think it is appropriate for children over the age of 6 unless they are smaller than the average child.
It's a great little car, but it's a shame it's not 2 wheel drive as it suffers from traction problems on slight inclines whether the grass is wet or not. 4 Stars bearing in mind the price, however it would have been 5 stars if it was 2 wheel drive, or cheaper.
