The Radio Flyer® Grow with Me Racer provides endless fun with 3 stages of play: completely adult driven, child driven with adult override ability, and finally completely child driven. The remote control gives parents the ability to override the child and either direct them on a better path or stop them immediately for safety. The remote has a 80ft range, and the car is equipped with an auto shut off when outside this range. One easy-push button makes it simple for kids to move forward, while the other easy-push button and steering wheel spins them right and left in place. Rechargeable battery and charger included.

Grow with Me Racer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing important battery info!? We haven't used the car yet. I got this for my grandson for Christmas and I clicked along fine putting it together but the battery info is sketchy! I charged the battery for 10 hours but the instructions only said don't charge over 18 hours. What is the appropriate charge time? It also says to recharge every time you use it. How do you know how long? I went to the web site and the other cars have a indicator light. Am I missing something on this one? I tried calling but they are now closed for the holidays. I feel like I have no way to insure I don't mess up the battery! Pretty frustrated at this point!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My toddler loves this car! Disclaimer: Radio Flyer provided us with a free sample of our Radio Flyer® Grow with Me Racer product to try out and review. My daughter is almost 22 months and LOVES this car. She asks for it daily, loves that she can hop in and out on her own, and even brings her stuffed animals along with her for rides. Her least favorite part is when the ride comes to an end! Handling - Remote control: We mostly use the adult operated remote control since our daughter is still young. It doesn't allow for a smooth ride when beginning to drive or changing directions. My daughter doesn't seem to mind it at all, but the car jerks a little at these times. Handling - Child steering: There are two buttons on the steering wheel that are only on right side. You can go forward, turn left/right. I wish the buttons were available on both sides with maybe a switch to indicate which side is being used. This operation favors right handed kids, whereas my daughter already favors her left hand. It's not a huge issue right now, but I can also see it being a struggle if a kid cannot use their right hand for whatever reason. Assembly: The directions are really straightforward, and I found it really simple to assemble. The only issue was lining up two of the screws on backside of steering wheel because it's in a tiny crevice that's hard to access. It didn't cause any major issues though. Battery charge: The manual says don't charge more than 18 hours, but there's no way to tell how long a full charge takes. Is it 17 hours? There's also no charger indicator that I see letting you know it's done. Some devices have a light that goes off when it's complete. Also, in order to charge the battery, you need to disconnect the 6v wires in order to connect the charger. Mine sticks pretty badly and is difficult to pull apart. It took two adults over 30 minutes to get the two wires apart in order to charge it. All batteries are included!! A nice bonus since not all toy companies do this. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Toddler = Happy Parent Radio Flyer provided my 2-year-old daughter with a free sample of the Radio Flyer® Grow with Me Racer to try out and review, and we are so happy they did! The Racer has quickly become her favorite toy. When we arrive home and enter the garage, she practically refuses to walk into the house without getting a chance to take it for a spin. I don't know how she can spin for so long, but she loves it. This Racer has improved her hand-eye coordination, as she learned to spin and drive herself around. The design is cool. I only wish it could be personalized like many of the other products offered by Radio Flyer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Toy for Child and Parents Radio flyer provided us with a free sample of the grow with me racer to try out and review with our daughter. The toy is true to what the box advertises: quick to put together, has safety features and grows with your child. Our daughter (almost 2) absolutely LOVED riding in the racer and was exciting for us to control. It kept all of us entertained for hours almost like playing a real life mario kart game. The remote was comfortable to hold and was more high tech than I initially thought because the controls synced to even the slightest movements of your finger. It was the perfect speed for us to walk behind her and allowed her to feel like she was driving it herself and had control. We love that as she grows she will be able to drive it herself and has the safety feature to override any unsafe movements. The setting to change the stage is under the seat which ensures that she could not change the setting while using it. It was very fast at charging and the battery lasted for a long time. Every night she comes home from school and says "my car" and wanting to play with it. Wonderful product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great First Car for Toddlers My son is just under 2 years old and really loves car. We thought he would instantly fall in love with the Grow with Me Racer! He enjoys sitting in it and watching others ride it as well. We only use the remote as he isn't old enough to maneuver the car himself. With the remote, it tends to jerk the car a little bit and isn't as fluid as we'd hope. It takes a bit for the car to turn - rather than immediately turning. The speed seems to be just right for little ones. I'm sure he will love driving himself in a year or so! Radio Flyer provided us with a free sample of the Grow with Me Racer to try out and review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy assembly and easy for little to use Radio Flyer provided us with a free sample of Grow with Me Racer to try out and review. It was easy to assemble, only complaint was there was a very narrow spot that needed a screw placed that took a little longer to get done Jan is like to admit, lol. I love that this ride on has a remote control for parents to control young riders. The STOP button worker in real time! My three year old loved it, even my 6 year old had to take it for a test drive. It’s a small car, perfect for us living in a condo with limited space. Would definitely recommend this to friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great car to grow into Radio Flyer provided this product free to review. 1st my son is 2 yo and he likes this car. The remote takes some getting used to. But once you have it works great. The second one to over ride and still let the kids drive is awesome. The 3rd option is to solo have kid drive, only down side is the forward is on the steering wheel and no pedel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry level ride-on car! Radio Flyer provided me with a free sample of the Grow with Me Racer to try out for this review. This is the perfect entry level ride-on car for kids. My 17 month old daughter has a no fear spirit and she loved going for a ride in the parent control mode. It does accelerate a bit too fast for her, but my 3 year old son didn't mind. My son loved both the parent control mode and when he was able to drive himself. The best part was the parent override ability on the remote control when he wasn't able to maneuver well on his own. My 5 year old and 7 year old nephews came over and they were still able fit into the car (even though their legs looked too big for it and the recommended age is 1.5 - 4 years old), and they had fun using the remote control on each other. The spinning feature was a hit with the kids, while still feeling safe from being belted in. Overall it's a great starter ride-on car!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! Our daughter loves this. Disclaimer: Radio Flyer provided us with a free sample of our Radio Flyer® Grow with Me Racer product to try out and review. Our 19 month old daughter loves her new car. The best part about this for her is that she can get in and out of it on her own. From the day I took it out of the box and even now she cannot wait to get into it. Assembly was easy and straightforward and took maybe 30 minutes. That was a great benefit, as our daughter was wanting to go for a ride ASAP daddy! Haha. I was then crossing my fingers that the battery had a charge and sure enough, it was ready to go out of the box. I have only operated this in full parental control mode. I will probably switch it to the mode where she can operate it along with parental override in another month. The only complaint that I have is the response time of the remote on occasions. Sometimes I push forward and the car doesn't do anything and then it goes after a second or two. Same thing for going in reverse and using the turning buttons. Other times it goes immediately. It's not as consistent as it should be in my opinion. Maybe something is interfering with it. This operates on the 2.4Ghz spectrum from what I saw in the manual, so maybe it's my router? I don't know. I may also take her to an empty parking lot (away from routers) and see if that makes a difference. I also plan (but have not done yet) to change the provided AAA batteries with some name brand batteries to see if that makes a difference also. If it does, then I'll either write another review or edit this one if I can. That is the only reason I am docking this one star. I wish that I could only dock it a half star. I really struggled with the rating. I want to give this a 5 star rating, but I just cannot with that response delay happening. Do I think this delay could cause harm to my child? Absolutely not, because I definitely won't have my daughter in it without our supervision and somewhere she could get hurt. Overall, it's an awesome product and I highly recommend! We are looking forward to years of fun in the future with this!
