Four wheeling is a favorite past time for many people, and it’s hard not to understand why. There’s something liberating about riding through the woods on rough (or muddy) terrain that really makes you feel alive! It isn’t surprising that people who enjoy these types of activities would want to include their children in the fun.
That is where the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force comes in. Although this doesn’t have the same power as a mini-four wheeler that uses gas, your child won’t be disappointed.
Of course, it’s understandable that you may have some reservations about purchasing an electric ride on for your child. We encourage you to keep reading through our review, as we will touch on some of the key features of the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force and we’ll highlight some of the comments people who purchased this for their children.
When all is said and done, we will give you our recommendation on whether this toy is truly worth the investment.
About The Ride On
The Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force is a great quad for small children who have always wanted to ride an adult-sized ATV. With this, your child will get a feel for how to balance on the quad, the turning mechanics, and how fun it can be going on outdoorsy adventures.
Notable features of the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force include:
- Realistic ATV styling
- Includes heavy duty on-board shovel
- 2.5 and 5 mph (4 km/h and 8 km/h) max. forward; 2.5 mph (4 km/h) max. reverse
- Drives on hard surfaces, wet grass and rough terrain
- Includes 12-volt battery and charger
- Recommended Ages: 3 years to 6 years old
Perhaps the most notable feature of the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force are the large Monster Traction wheels. These strong wheels are able to take your adventurer through mud, gravel, grass, and even shallow water without any problems—even at maximum speed of 5 MPH.
Of course, you’re not comfortable with your kid going that fast, you can use the speed lockout mechanism to restrict the speed to 2.5 MPH until you feel your child can handle themselves with no problem. Also, as an added safety feature, the second your child takes their foot off the accelerator, the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force’s Power lock brake system takes effect and it’ll stop the ATV without hesitation.
It is recommended that before you let your tyke out on their new Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force, you let the battery charge for 18 hours. Also, there will be some assembly required.
What Customers Say
When we looked at the user reviews, we saw that 91% had great things to say about the ride on and left 4 or 5-star reviews. Of these reviews, people commented on how durable the quad is. One customer even said that her grandson put the quad through a lot of rough terrain and it was still holding up quite well.
Another customers said that they were afraid that their 7 year old, who is of an average size, was able to fit comfortably on the quad. Customers said that the quad was easy to put together because the directions were easy to follow. Some parents said the box their product came in was damaged, but fortunately their quad was unaffected.
So what did the remaining 9% of customers who left 3-star or below reviews have to say? The most common complaint customers had was in regard to the way their product arrived at their home. Some customers said their package was missing a few essential pieces. One customer said that the handle bars were welded backward and the steering linkage didn’t match up.
Other customers have said that the because the box arrived damaged, there were a few scratches and gouges in the plastic body. One customer said that shortly after using the toy a couple of times, the first gear and the reverse stopped working, which was a big disappointment. Another complaint some people had was that it didn’t go fast enough—although the package clearly states the max speed is 5 MPH.
It’s always nice to include your children in your favorite past times. When you can include them in your love for the great outdoors and four wheeling, it’s just that much more special. While you could let your kid ride with you on your quad, you can get them one of their very own with the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force.
Now if you’re wondering if it is worth the pice of just under $400 (under $500 regular price) price tag, we feel that it really is. Not only do we feel that way, but so do 91% of customers who purchased the toy.
When you think about it, not only are you giving your child a toy that looks a lot like an adult version of an ATV, but you’re giving them a chance to explore and ride around like an adult, without the danger that is associated with a child sized gas powered ATV that can go three to four times the speed of the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force. That alone is reason enough to consider this toy.
We do want to point out that no matter what kind of ATV you buy your child, you have the right set of safety gear for them, just in case. You don’t want to be riding down your favorite trails and your child hit a rock and lose control. Granted, the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Kawasaki Brute Force has a power brake lock system that will stop the toy, your child still could fall off and hurt themselves.
Whatever you choose, we are certain that your child will be more than thrilled with your gift, especially if that means they get to ride with the big kids!
