Like all PlaSmart products, the PlasmaCar is built to last: it's made from state-of-the-art, high-quality ABS plastics, rugged and durable for kids on the go. It's deceptively simple, too, both to look at and to operate. It sports six wheels, a seat, footrests, and a steering wheel. That's it. There are no pedals. No gears. And best of all-batteries are not required.
The PlasmaCar comes in variety of colors like blue, green, purple, pink, and red, guaranteed to fit any active kid's color-scheme. Kids will like its looks because it's vivid, sleek and aerodynamic, just like a race car. They'll love how fast it can go, and will delight in racing PlasmaCars with their friends (with adult supervision, of course).
Here's how it works:
To propel the PlasmaCar, you rotate the steering wheel continuously from left to right. It also works in reverse. To zoom backwards, just switch the set of four front wheels around so that the larger ones are closest to the front of the car. To stop your PlasmaCar, just cease rotating the steering wheel and, when the car slows, put your feet on the ground to bring it to a full stop-easy as pie. Think of it as a Segway for kids. The PlasmaCar can go an exhilarating but kid-safe 2.8 meters per second; that's over 10 km/h. Kids feel the need for speed-and this toy will give them exactly what they need!
It's like magic, but you don't need to be a magician to get it to work. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power, by harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. It's so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface.
The PlasmaCar is adult-friendly, too. For starters, it doesn't require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement. No batteries, no power-cells, no liquid fuel-just the occasional cookie or two. It's quiet too-the only sound you'll hear is the sound of its wheels. It provides kids with plenty of exercise, more so than most toys. And the PlasmaCar is engineered to be absolutely safe when used appropriately. It's been extensively tested, and meets or exceeds all significant international safety standards, including the following:
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F936:96a
European Toy Safety Standard
EN71 Part 1: 1998 - Mechanical and physical properties
EN71 Part 2: 1993 - Flammability
EN71 Part 3: 1994 / A1:200 - Specification for migration of certain Elements
The PlasmaCar can handle a load of 100 kg (220 lbs) on a smooth, flat surface, and 55 kg (120 lbs) on a rough, flat surface.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE ON HARDWOOD FLOORS OR LAMINATE FLOORING
For the kids, the PlasmaCar is pure energy and pure fun. For the folks, it's safe, inexpensive, and quiet. Don't just take our word for it: the PlasmaCar has garnered global acclamation, including the 2001 Gold Medal at the International Patent Fair in Hong Kong.
