Our Thoughts

This toy will bring some fun time between dad and his boy(s)…

One evening, while the kids were in bed, we decided to product test this remote control vehicle.   The battery takes about 4 hours to charge and I had planned in advance during the day.  

We were both impressed by the rapidity and the stunts that you can do with this vehicle.   Immediately, my husband commented that our boys will love to play with this…  To his comment I added that it will be a wonderful toy to have at the campground.   I can picture them in the field near our campsite and having fun making stunts.  While my husband was driving, I laughed like crazy because it was the coolest thing I ever saw. We were both amazed by the response time and the fact that the vehicle would flip often.

The control is very sensitive and without you knowing it, your vehicle will hit the walls and flip back and forth or left and right.   The remote control also has the possibility to record your stunts on three different buttons. You can replay them anytime you want afterwards. But be careful, your stunt will be deleted if you record something else on it.



The only little thing I have a problem with is the fact that apparently the battery will last about 15 minutes.   Four hours of charging and only 15 minutes of play?   But seeing what it can do and the rapidity it does it, it could explain the fast discharge on the battery…  I wish there was some possibility to purchase an extra battery for it because with three boys the battery will be drained in no time – especially at camping…

The Tonka XT Ricochet Stunt Pro R/C Vehicle is available at your favourite toy store for the price of 89.99$.
