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

CTA Wii Inflatable Kart

by Lawrence Johnson on 8/13/2010

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...

Fun for kids, really enhances gameplay

by Don on 8/13/2010

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.
