I purchased this toy with some apprehension after reading reviews about it not working after the first day. Despite the reviews, I decided to purchase the toy since my son loves motorcycles and I knew he would just fall in love with this toy. I will mention that I did experience the same issue that many reviewers pointed out about the toy no longer moving forward after only a short while of playing with it. When this occurred, I manually moved the toy forward, then used the remote control to get it moving and that seemed to resolve the issue. There must be something within the wheels that gets a little stuck when kids first play with the toy. After having this issue one more time on the first day of play, it was corrected again when the toy was manually moved forward, then the remote control used.
Since the issues that occurred on the first day, there have been no further problems. My son (who is three) and his older brother (who is five) absolutely love this toy and I can easily see why. It is truly a fun toy. Although the toy doesn't turn left or right (it only moves forward or spins), my boys could care less. They either position the toy in the direction they want it to go or they press the spin button to get it to spin a bit, then they move it forward.
All in all, I consider this a great purchase and am considering buying the second which operates on a different frequency. I think many parents will find that young kids (around 3 or perhaps even a little younger) as well as older kids (adults included) will enjoy this toy.
