If your little girl saw the movie and have to have everything they can get their hands on that is related to the movie, then surely this Power Wheels is on your list.
However, you may not know much about Power Wheels, which is where we come in. In this review, we will give you a look at the technical specs of the ride on, we’ll look at what parents had to say who have already purchased the ride on.
Finally, we will give you our recommendations and whether we feel this toy is worth the investment.
About The Ride On
Fisher-Price is a well-known and trusted manufacturer of children’s toys for many years. Among the line of toys that the company makes, the Power Wheels line has been a well-loved product. These miniature cars give your child the chance to play make believe and drive around like mommy and daddy, albeit at a much slower speed.
- With the Frozen-themed Jeep Wrangler, the notable features include:
- Realistic Jeep Wrangler styling
- Disney Frozen colors and graphics
- Pretend radio with songs from the movie
- Includes 12-volt battery and charger
- Seats 2; Max. weight 130 lb (59 kg)
- Roomy rear storage area
- 2.5 and 5 mph ( 4 and 8 km/h) max. forward; 2.5 mph (4 km/h) max. reverse
- Parent controlled high-speed lockout for beginners
- Recommended ages: 36 months to 6 years
While your child is riding around with her friend, sibling, or a car full of her favorite toys (thanks to the extra seat and storage space behind the seats), you never have to worry about them getting cut or hurt because the insides of the Jeep features smooth contours and rounded edges. Also, to add to the realistic look of the Jeep, the doors open and close, which adds to the overall safety of your child when she’s gallivanting through the yard.
Because the car uses a 12V battery, the car has the ability to reach 2.5 MPH while going forward, and 2.5MPG while in reverse. If you feel your little one is ready to amp up the speed, you can remove the high speed lock-out and increase the speed to 5 MPH while going forward.
The wide tires allows the Power Wheels to ride on hard surfaces as well as on grass, so their imagination will know no limits. The Power-Lock Brake system makes the car stop the moment your child lifts their foot off of the pedal. Not only is the toy a great way for your child to play, but it can help your child develop self-confidence and their critical thinking skills.
What Customers Say
When we looked at the user reviews, we saw that 93% had great things to say about the ride on and left 4 or 5-star reviews. Of these reviews, people commented on how adorable the Jeep is. Customers shared that although the music that the Jeep plays aren’t the full songs, they still sing along. Customers also said that for a toy, they were impressed with the power and the speed that the Power Wheels are capable of reaching.
So what did the remaining 7% of customers who left 3-star or below reviews have to say? The most common complaint customers had was either their particular unit didn’t come with an essential piece (like the steering column) and some of the pieces weren’t able to be flush against one another.
A few parents were disappointed because their child was too large for the toy, although they were within the recommended age range specified for the toy. One customer even said their 6 year old looked like a “giant” while sitting in it. Of the product itself, a couple customers felt the plastic was cheap and flimsy, and they voiced their concerns about their child’s safety.
For a fun ride on a toy that features her favorite Disney princesses, the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler gives her the chance to play make believe, explore the yard, all while building her self-confidence. As she’s playing, she is able to foster a sense of independence, develop her critical thinking skills, and just have fun.
The Fisher-Price Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler is listed for just under $235 (under $300 regular price). Do we feel that this is worth the money that you are asked to pay for the toy? Yes, we do and apparently so do the 93% of parents who bought the Power Wheels for their daughters.
The toy may have had some defects or missing parts, but because these instances were so few, it’s safe to say it was more of a fluke occurrence than the norm. We do want to point out that if there is a problem with your purchase and you’ve purchased the toy from Amazon, you can contact customer service and ask for the manufacturer’s warranty.
