How sweet is this ride? We received a test product of DYNACRAFT's BMW i8 Concept Car to review. My kids have loved their ride-ons since they were little, but this one is fancy and new so they were excited to give it a test drive. As we pulled it out of the box and removed the packaging, we were impressed how detailed it was. They even have BMW wheel caps! You may already know, the BMW i8 is an expensive $150,000 luxury dream sports car, and Dynacraft did a great job replicating it.
Assembly instructions were straight forward, needs to be done by an adult, and comes with all the tools and parts that you will need. Watch the helpful video below for a better understanding how to put it together. You'll want to check to make sure you're not missing any parts as well. It seats one, has seat belts, side view mirrors, working LED headlights, has MP3 input, and a working shifter. It moves forward and reverse. When the foot pedal is released, the car will stop automatically. (Note: It doesn't have a horn or a trunk for storage.) At top speed, it goes 2.5 miles per hour. Not super fast if you want to walk along side or behind them riding. You will have to charge the 6V battery overnight for 18 hours out of the box. After that, the battery will last about 40 minutes of driving, and you will need to charge it again for at least 8 hours.
We had little cousins over for Mother's Day, and they couldn't wait to take a turn. My little niece who is four years old, was fixing her hair as she drove around the neighborhood. What kid wouldn't feel special with this ride-on? They are driving in-style and were turning heads. We had a white one, but it also comes in black. This ride-on retails for $199.
