Tonka XT Ricochet Tricksters R/C Review

Because I am a BzzAgent I received free products to try out and review for their Tonka XT Ricochet Tricksters BzzCampaign. I thought it a perfect gift for my oldest son's birthday. Even though Delbin would be getting it late he was very excited. As soon as it came he had to try it out. It was so fun to watch the remote control car do its tricks. Delbin got the hang of it and was having fun launching it off ramps and making it spin and flip. He loved it and I think it is the perfect gift for any boy 6+!

The car my son got was the one with the Rampage Flip as the signature trick. It has two different sides that when flipped it looks like a different vehicle. The car itself is rechargeable (has a rechargeable battery included) and plugs into the controller that takes 5 double A batteries that weren't included. The infra red controller charges the car about 20-30 minute charge provides 15-30 minutes of run time.  It can also be controlled on 3 different channels. It is intended for indoor use for ages 6 and up.

The Tonka XT Ricochet Tricksters come in 3 styles: Rampage Flip, Zig-Zag Jolt and Buzzsaw Spin. These R/C cars have an approx. retail of $24.99. You can save $5 with an online coupon here. You can purchase them online at Hasbro or or find them at Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us and Kmart.

Here is my video of my son playing with his car:

I like that the Ricochet Tricksters can drive on two sides, so there's not really an "upside down" to them.
