We bought this for our 4 yr old grandson's birthday and he loves it! As long as the batteries are good, this toy does exactly what it is supposed to do, go over obstacles (within reason), go on carpet and in water. I crinkled up a blanket on the floor to make an obstacle course and the RC had virtually no problem and went fast on carpet which I didn't expect. It also does work great in water; however, don't let little hands submerge it because, even though the battery compartment is sealed, water tends to leak in just enough to stop the unit; however, until it was submerged, it worked as described. The controls are extremely easy to use and understand for young children. The battery compartments need a screwdriver to open and the morphibian unit has two covers for the battery compartment which I like both for suitability for water and curious hands. You will need a skinny screwdriver for the first cover as the screw is countersunk quite a space which I feel is great to prevent curious hands from getting into. The second cover also has a screw but is easier to get to and the compartment has a rubber seal to help keep water out although I do wish the seal was a bit more substantial to keep water out better so our grandson could submerge it in the tub. The units are sturdy which is a blessing because our grandson is not easy on toys. Be prepared to have spare batteries on hand because the unit is so much fun for everyone. Invest in rechargeable batteries if possible. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this toy and would recommend it to anyone and will buy others for other grandchildren.
