Tonka Ricochet Tricksters

Awhile back I briefly mentioned that I received a Tonka Ricochet Tricksters remote control vehicle to try out and review, courtesy of BzzAgent.

There are three different types of Ricochet Tricksters, each with a unique signature trick: Buzzsaw Spin, Rampage Flip, and Zig-Zag Jolt.  They retail for about $24.99. The age recommendation on the package is 6+. The controller requires 5 AA batteries, and it needs to be charged for 20-30 minutes (for 15-30 minutes of play time). To charge the car, you connect the car to the controller. There is no electricity involved, so I would suggest using rechargeable batteries.

We received the Zig-Zag Jolt, which can go in a zig-zag motion really fast. But one of the cool things about these toys is that with practice, they can each actually perform all three of the signature tricks. Connor has been able to get ours to do the Buzzsaw Spin pretty well, and he's working on the Rampage Flip. It can also drive on either side, so when it does flip it keeps on going. The kids, including Chris, have been having lots of fun with the Tonka Ricochet Tricksters. You might want to keep this one on your radar if you're shopping for a little boy this Christmas.

Here's a little snippet so you can get a picture of what it looks like in action:

I received a Tonka Ricochet Tricksters free of charge courtesy of BzzAgent. I was not compensated in any other way for this review, and the views and opinions are 100% mine.
