Oppenheim Toy Porfolio Platinum Award 2006!
Nominated-Outdoor Toy of the Year 2006!
A car toy exceeding expectations. The future has arrived at Fat Brain Toys and it's one smooth operator.
Hop on the Plasma Car and prepare to zip, zoom & cruise! The trike that looks and acts like a race car from the future. Not the typical toy pedal car, this ride on toy has even the adults at Fat Brain Toys car crazy!
We are truly wound up about this revolutionary design. An inside or outside toy designed like a trike without any pedals, gears or batteries! More fun than a scooter...and it supports up to 220 pounds!!!
Yep, even Grandpa can take a spin!!!
What puts the PlasmaCar in a class by itself though, is the very nature of this cool science toy...
The PlasmaCar is powered by inexhaustible kid-power and harnesses the natural forces of centrifugal force and gravity. Effectively reducing forces of friction & inertia in its design! It's a fun car so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface!
The bike of the future! To mobilize this fun riding toy simply turn the wheel from left to right and let nature's forces do the work!
To slow down - just stop turning the wheel...
To stop - just put your feet down on the floor or pavement.
A remarkably safe riding toy for all ages, the Plasma Car has received global acclamation. Additionally, Plasma Car meets and exceeds all international product safety standards. It has received the prestigious 3 Star Award from the Canadian Toy Testing Council. And certified "Wow!" status from Today's Parent Magazine.
Pure Energy. Pure Fun.

PLEASE NOTE: Some adult assembly is required.
PLEASE NOTE: PlasmaCars may cause damage to some wood floors. Take care in using in an indoor environment.
HOW IT WORKS: Just rotate the steering wheel from side to side to go forward and flip the wheel 180 degrees to steer backwards. The smoother the driving surface, the faster you go. To stop, cease rotating the steering wheel and put your feet onto the ground.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Hydrocephalus
"Our 2 yr old grandchild has a Dandy Walker Variant, which is a slight brain malformation. He has to work a little harder to accomplish many tasks that he faces in a day. His main difficulty is his speech. He has good balance. He was able to drive the plasma car right from his initial time of getting on the car. He seemed confident while riding. He seemed to know how to operate it without any direction of any kind from an adult. It was an excellent choice of toy for this toddler."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD,
"In my dance and gymnastic studio we have students with different type challenges. I feel this product could be used in a creative way for developing skills or just for the freedom of having fun."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Developmental Delay
"Due to multiple open heart surgeries and a shoulder deformity, our son has limited trunk movement and decreased strength in his arms and hands. The plasma car enables him to have fun while using the muscles he has the most trouble with. He is having fun while exercising!"
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Cerebral Palsy
"Elizabeth crossed her legs in front of the PlasmaCar, which stretched her leg muscle until they burned she said. Also she had to use her right arm and hand to turn the car. This is work for her, but she wanted to ride. She told me she would ride the car again because it was fun."

Well made. We ordered 3 of them for 2 two year olds and 1 four year old. The cars appealed to both of them. Even the younger kids were able to turn the steering wheel to make the car move. The car comes with a warning that the wheels may damage hard floors so the use is limited to outside or an unfinished basement.
