Power Wheel

Postby Tyler » Mon Mar 09, 2020 12:23 pm

Our Power Wheel was such a great investment. It is huge and takes up a lot of space, but it is the most played with outside toy by far. We got it on sale for $170, normally $300? Evie's swing set cost more than double and barely gets touched. As long as there was no snow on the sidewalk we were able to use the powerwheel on nice winter days. We didn't try using the swingset once from October until yesterday.

Typical use of ours is hot laps around the house or family walks where Evie drives it. Can't wait for Ollie to ride with her. If he rode with her now his head would pop off. I've been thinking about putting my dashcame on hers because I think it might be funny.

TL;DR - for all parents of young kids, if you see a deal on a Power Wheel jump on it now even if your kid is too young for it. Future self will thank you.

Double the fun if you remove the screw to increase the speed

I'm not like you who waited 2 years to unlock fast mode, we did it after 2 days.

We got one for free last year I just had to buy a battery. The steering is pretty piss poor though hopefully Marshall has an easier time this year than he did last fall
