The Razor Dune Buggy reminds me of the dune buggies my cousins had in the 70′s and 80′s. It’s a miniature electric version of the gas powered originals. I used to love tooling around in those things so this was a no-brainer for me to buy the Razor Electric Dune Buggy for my son.
This electric dune buggy has a powerful 350 watt motor and can go up to 10 mph. It seems to be fast enough to satisfy most kids but not too fast to give moms a heart attack. Adults can easily keep up with the buggy for easy supervision.
You can tell Razor put a lot of thought into parent safety concerns by keeping the kart low to the ground to prevent roll-overs and adding roll bars for added prevention. It also comes with a seat belt and safety flag for better visibility. Also, remember to use a helmet at all times.
It is well built with quality materials instead of the cheap plastic junk found on a lot of electric ride-ons. The Razor Dune Buggy has a powder coated tubular steel frame with diamond plate floorboards and 8 inch rubber pneumatic tires. One of the best things about this buggy is the fully electric motor that doesn’t require gas and is very quiet. No more stinky exhaust fumes and you can actually hear each other if you need to tell your child to turn around or slow down.
The hand throttle and brake controls are easy for kids to get the hang of especially if they already have experience with other ride-on toys and vehicles.
It comes fully assembled so all you have to do is open the box and put the flag in the hole. You probably will need to charge the battery for the full 18 hours recommended when you get it. It may arrive charged but to get the best first use, do try to charge the battery.
The age range on the box says for use by 14+ year olds. But that seems to be what the company lawyer recommended as opposed to the reality of who this product was built for (about 5 – 12 yrs. old depending on the child’s size). It would be perfect for kids too old for the plastic Barbie and Jeep cars that go 2 mph but are still too young for a full size go kart.
This is a super cool vintage-style ride! Kids of all ages love this thing (OK – I admit I really dig riding my son’s Razor Dune Buggy).
