Customer Reviews of CTA Wii Inflatable Kart - Car Rider for Mario Kart and All Racing Games
When I received this item in the mail I ran out of the door jumping up and down. I almost hugged the mail guy cause he was jumping up and down too. He actually fell down on the ground so I had to help him back up. But the item was really helpful, and I needed it.
My granddaughter uses this everytime she plays MarioKart, and loves it. It is sturdy and can stand up to rough housing. Would recommend it to anyone.
These are Awesome!1/30/2011
My 5 year old and his friends absolutely love these! It is a little difficult to make sharp turns, but for their use, it works great. Have had them (2) for a month now and no leaking or other defects as others have indicated.
Like the most of the other reveiws - not very good1/15/2011
I won't say a lot other than I gave this toy a try too. Too bad it really didn't turn it that well. Glad my 3 year son pretty much destroys all his cars and trucks, thus he really doesn't realize this car is tore up as well. Same as everyone else about the steering wheel, but I also the wheels on my basically ripped from the body of the car.
Fun but flimsy1/8/2011
As many other reviews have attested, you need to be sure to remove the wheel and steering column from the inflatable cart when you are inflating it for the first time AND any subsequent times. It will break if you don't... which mine did. My son did enjoy it while it was in one piece though...
We have two of these and my opinion is mixed. One of the two is perfectly fine. The other well, is junk. The steering wheel column broke within 2 days. I thought it was a little rough gameplay from my 6 yr old so I just glued it back together with some gorilla glue. Problem solved right? Nope, then the back partially detached but is still usable. Then to top it all off the column broke again this time unfixable. So now if we want to use it it is just a cushy air seat for one of my girls.
We only get to use it once.1/1/2011
I bought this about a month ahead of my 5 years old's birthday. He used it once with his 7 years old brother and it broke. It is difficult to pump the whole car and where the wheel needs to be is difficult to turn. It feels cheaply made and the bottom lost all it's air the next day. Not worth the money at all in my openium.
It's difficult to change to another game.1/1/2011
We haven't had the problems with breakage. The kids complain that it's hard to remove and reinsert the controller - they change from a race game to a dance game, to a sports game, to a racing game, etc.
DO NOT PURCHASE12/26/2010
Even though I read all of the reviews, I decided to give this a try. My decision was based on some research that I did online that led me to the manufacture's response to some of the customer feedback they had received. In short the marketing manager for CTA stated that they had revamped the design on the steering wheel of this kart to improve its durability and that any karts ordered after August 3, 2010 would be one the newer models which would not have the same steering column defects. My seven year old received this for Christmas and he LOVED it! Unfortunately he played with it for merely a day and a half before the plastic piece on the steering column broke. (What happened to the new and improved kart?) Although I read that some customers chose to glue it back, I simply refuse to go that route because I expected this product to have a lot more durability. Needless to say my son was very disapointed and so was I. Now Santa will have to try to come up with a great replacement gift in order to soothe my dismayed little one.
Design of steering column is flawed12/25/2010
I bought two of these inflatable cars for my 3 yr old and 8 yr old for Christmas this year (2010). They love playing Mario Cart and I thought this would really add to the excitement. I mean this is a really cool concept and I was excited when I bought it 3 months ago. They opened them this morning and immediately wanted to play. The first one went together in a cinch and although it took me a good 15 minutes to blow it up using a hand held pump, I was still excited about getting it up an running. The first cars steering column clicked right into place with no problem. With the second car, I could never get the steering column to click into place like the first. I examined the piece and it appeared that the plastic edge was chipped or was not shaped properly in manufacturing so it just kept popping off. Very poor concept used on the steering columns. My wife will be contacting the manufacturer on Monday to try to acquire a replacement steering column. If I had seen all of the reviews, I would definitely not have purchased this inflatable car. I am hoping that the manufacturer will be easy to deal with. I don't want to return them because the girls are really excited about them, but I would like to have 2 cars that work and not just one. I rated the FUN of this item as one (1) star (I hate it) because these cars were not cheap and I do hate receiving a product that does not work. I rated the cars very low because I feel that the design is flawed, and I can't believe a company can not come up with a more durable design for an item that really could be tons of fun if the right engineers were involved with designing it. If I were you, I would NOT take the risk on these. The design of the steering column is a recipe for disaster and frustration. Mark Garner, NC
Rides nice and works with all my racing games. Kids love it!
Unsatisfied, to say the least9/9/2010
This may be the only complaint that I have ever written regarding a product purchased on Amazon.com. This inflatable car for my kids (who weigh about 45 lbs combined and not even close to the weight limit of the product)..had two holes in it, at the seams, on the first day of use. You cannot patch (provided) a seam. Also, the steering wheel does not stay on the cart...so it is useless. I highly recommend NOT buying this product.
Another rip off9/9/2010
This was a birthday gift for our 11 year old granddaughter. It lasted 2 days as it let go in a seam and could not be repaired. We game her what we paid for the kart so she could find something that she really liked. So we paid out about $60 for something that isn't worth 5 cents. Don't buy this
DON'T BUY THIS ITEM9/8/2010
This is the biggest rip off I have ever seen. It didn't even last 1 week. The steering wheel broke off. The car deflated. It doesn't hold 40 pounds much less 300. I should have just put my $30 in the shreader. Doesnt' look like I can get my money back either.
Piece of Junk9/8/2010
This is a piece of junk. It didn't even last 1 week. The steering wheel completely broke off and the car lost air almost from day one. What a total wast of money. Don't buy this unless you want to be disappointed.
What's worse than having a poorly designed/manufac9/7/2010
Paying for one. Or two in my case. I purchased it for a 6yo and a 4yo and even before they got to use it, I had the patch kit out repairing it. Once it was patched and the kids were able to use it, problems after problems. The steering wheel came off then both inflatables had leaks at the same place which leads me to think it was poorly designed and manufactured. The leaks were at the seams which is very difficult to repair if not impossible. I gave up on repairing it. The poor kids only got to use it for 15 minutes.
Very Poor , work just 10-15 min.9/7/2010
The steering wheel work properly just 10-20 min.. There was 2 leak within the first 24 hrs use.Please don't waste money on this product, does not even last for one day. $30 DOLLARS GONE WITHIN 12 HRS.
Even though I read the reviews...9/7/2010
..I knew my son was going to like it a lot. And he did! I used my air machine to inflate this toy, and it was pretty fast. However, it seems the front left wheel has a leak... bummer! Also, the steering wheel was coming off consistently until it broke. This made me quite mad, but my son wanted to keep playing, so I used crazy glue around the steering wheel and the one piece that connects it. After 24hrs it won't come off now. Only because my son likes it, I give it a 3 rating, otherwise this deserves a 2 because the video makes you think you are getting a durable toy, because that guy who weighs more than the kids is playing on it. By the way, do not sit on this if you are over 90 lbs. Believe me, this will deflate very quickly.
The "hub" assembly to attach the wheel is very flimsy and after only a few minutes of use, the wheel pops off. Even worse, the plastic "clips" that secure it break off VERY easily increaing the likehood it'll come apart in a few more minutes. Furthermore, we ordered two and both developed holes within a couple of hours in the exact same spot, causing them to deflate. The holes were near a crease so teh patch kit was useless. Overall, they look fun & cool, but won't last long at all. Don't waste your time or money.
Extremely poor product8/29/2010
The steering wheel does not work properly. There was a leak within the first day.Please dont waste money on this product, it is just a big balloon for more than 30 dollars that does not even last for one day.
Good looking serious piece of c***8/23/2010
It took me a lot LONGER to inflate than for it to POP. As soon as my 7 year old sat in it, the wheel popped off, he got out and sat in it again, this time we heard a scream as it got a 4 inch hole in it. Total torture for both the kids and the parents - as we have to calm them down after all that excitement. Great product idea, but need a LOT of work on the manufacturer's side. Very poorly constructed.
Great for about 10 minutes!8/20/2010
We bought 2 of these for our kids. The idea is very cool but they are not durable and not very well put together. My 7 year old daughter was having a ball and I was having a great time watching her play until the steering wheel popped off. I snapped it back on 3 times but then we realized that the kart had a leak and was not holding air. I was not happy but my 7 year old was really not impressed. It's too bad because this idea has potential it is just not executed very well.
Fun for kids, really enhances gameplay8/13/2010
My grandson really loved it. Like games at the arcades, where you sit in a "car" in front of a screen that shows video of a road. That's what this provides for Mario Kart or any driving simulation game on the Wii. Instead of just holding a steering wheel, the kids get the sensation of actually driving! It's also fun without a video game, just for make-believe. It is sturdy and ours held the air for weeks before we deflated it for storage. You will want to use a pump to inflate it, and there are several air compartments to make it easier. We had two problems, one was our fault. I didn't know what one small plastic part was, turns out you plug it into the Wii remote to make it fit easily into the steering wheel. The other problem was that the steering wheel sometimes popped off of the mounting bracket. That wasn't too hard to live with, though. I think the negative review below got posted for the wrong product. This item has no batteries, no charger.
CTA Wii Inflatable Kart8/13/2010
It is a very cool product; however, my two four year olds broke the steering mechanism with in the first 30 minutes. The steering mechanism needs work. The pieces should not break so easily. I purchased two of these things; one got a hole in it with in the first hour. I would think twice about purchasing this product...
