What It Is
What It Is
The Tonka XT Ricochet Stunt Pro R/C is a remote-control vehicle that lets you save and play back different stunts. With the remote control, you can control the speed of the car with the forward/reverse stick and steer with the left/right stick. The remote control also has four memory slots, which means you can record and save up to four different stunts at one time. Slide the knob to the slot in which you want to save your trick. Then press and release the record button to start recording. Once you're done recording, press and release the stop button. Press and hold the Replay Trigger to replay the driving and stunts that you just recorded. The Ricochet Stunt Pro R/C comes with information on how to perform four different stunts, including the Buzzsaw Spin, which gets the car to do three spirals; the Rampage Flip, which flips the car (But don't worry: since the car is double-sided, it keeps driving.); the Ric-Twist, which makes the car flip over sideways; and the 8-Ball Drift, which makes the car drive in a figure eight. Kids can also create their own stunts.
Why It’s Fun
The ability to perform different stunts, including flipping over and continuing to drive, makes the Tonka XT Ricochet Stunt Pro R/C fun and exciting. But kids will really like the added technology of recording and replaying the different moves and stunts they make the Stunt Pro R/C perform.
Who It’s For
The Tonka XT Ricochet Stunt Pro R/C is for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
This is an updated, more technologically advanced version of the original Ricochet, which was a huge hit for its high performance and versatile play.
The Tonka XT Ricochet Stunt Pro R/C comes with three AA batteries and one 9.6-volt NiMH rechargeable battery. It takes about four hours for the NiMH battery to fully charge. A charger and wall adapter are included. The vehicle operates for about 15 minutes on a full charge.
The car works best on a hard, flat surface. You need an open area to make the car do some of the included stunts.
