Why have you listed a 6v battery in the bundle when it's meant to be a 12v car? Is this a 12v car or a 6v one? 

Asked by: Steve V
This is a 12v car

Does height of the children make a difference ? My son is 4, and 1.7 meters tall. Couldn’t see how an 8 year old would fit it in it, worried my son will be too tall already 

Asked by: Jack
1.7 metres is 5 foot and 7 inches ... If your 4 year old is this tall he will definitely not fit in this vehicle.
