Who is the RollPlay Mini Cooper For?
Although the recommended age says 3 and up, really think it is really made for ages 2-4. The reason being is that it is a 6 volt battery operated car. This only allows the car to go so fast.
This is perfect if you have a 2 year old. It has an easy, controlled speed. The doors stay shut making it harder for your kid to fall out or get out of the vehicle.
I say for ages 2-4 not because the car can’t handle older, heavier kids. On the contrary, we have had many of our neighbors and friends over, who have ridden the Mini Cooper that weighed in the range of 65lbs-70lbs, and the vehicle did just fine.
I say max 4 years old because my oldest son was already bored with it by the time he was 3 1/2…..it just went too slow compared to a 12-volt electric car, like the Moderno Kids Jeep Wrangler Raptor.
My oldest will be 4 next month, at the time of this writing and he lost interest in driving it about 6 months ago. So the reason why I say max 4 years old is because the Fun Factor Meter will start to go down drastically by then.
If you are looking for an off roading type of vehicle, than the RollPlay Mini Cooper is NOT for you. You are better off looking into the Peg Perego John Deere Groudn Force Tractor.
But if you are looking for a starter vehicle, something that is safe, but still looks cool and has some great features, then the RollPlay Mini Cooper will be something you and your family will enjoy.
How is RollPlay’s Customer Service?
I have not contacted them myself, but their website has an easy to find “Contact Us” page. They also provide a FAQs page as well as some basic trouble shooting on their website.
I also love that RollPlay has easy to find and order replacement parts if needed so you can have your kids electric car lasting for years and they provide a decent warranty.
My boys had a good time on the Mini Cooper and I believe it to be a good quality product. I never had any problems with the vehicle or battery.
If you are looking for a great, cool looking, safe, stater electric car for your kids, then the RollPlay Mini Cooper is for you.
