Life is Poppin - Top Ten Fat Brain Toys

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! It's a trike that looks and acts like a race car from the future! Not your typical toy pedal car, this ride on toy has even the adults at Fat Brain Toys going car crazy!

We are truly wound up about this revolutionary design. Great for inside or outside play and designed like a trike without any pedals, gears or batteries, you're sure to have 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. Its design effectively reduces the forces of friction and inertia in a way that's extremely 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.

Get ready for a new kind of car-ride excitement with the PlasmaCar.

  • Pure Energy. Pure Fun.
  • A Car Toy That Offers Thrilling Mobility
  • A Ride On Toy for All Ages
  • Safe, Inexpensive, & Quiet
  • A Scooter Powered by Inertia, Centrifugal Force, Gravity, & Friction
  • Deceptively Simple to Operate
  • Rugged & Durable; A Play Car Built to Last
  • Constructed of High-Quality Plastics

    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.

    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:
    "My 4 year old Grandson has Autism. He likes bikes and cars. He doesn't have the balance or coordination required to ride a bike. He is very tall so the toddler cars, even the motorized ones are too small for him. This fits him very well, size wise, and has enough room so that even when he grows he can still use it. I like that it doesn't have any batteries or require any charging or anything. I like that it's low enough to the ground. I'm not worried about him falling or being injured. He gets some exercise when he pushes along with his feet. Bikes and other toy cars in the past have not worked for him. This car is amazing. Great Price. Most importantly he is so happy and so proud of himself when he's on it. "

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "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, Developmental Delay, Learning Disabilities
    "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."

    My granddaughter hasn't opened this yet but her favorite color is YELLOW so I was surprised that's one of the reasons I bought it and she loves "exercise." Mainly I use Fat Brain because they are fast, accurate, get the order right, the quality is excellent and they are always responsive. Great company.

    So much fun!
    Posted 12/1/2014 by Casie

    My kids adore this! I let them ride it in our house since it is cold outside. They have so much fun but fought over taking turns so Santa will be bringing another one. :-) definitely keeps the kids active during the winter months. I can't wait until it warms up again so we can try this outside.

    Review of PlasmaCar
    Posted 11/23/2014 by amy schultz

    Plastic wheels and foot placement mats make it poor quality, would be better if it was made of some sort of rubber. Overall great toy, it was what I expected for the price. Everyone in the house including parents like to ride it, but it's definitely an indoor or smooth surface toy.
