We bought the Power Wheels Cadillac Escalade Barbie edition at Toys-r-us last year for my 3 year old for Christmas. I didn't really want a ride-on this large, but after looking at all the options at Toys-r-us, it seemed the safest, plus we wanted one her big sister could help her drive until she got a little older and could do it herself. My husband had no trouble putting it together...he put it right in the living room with all her toys all around it. She was thrilled when she saw what "Santa" brought her...she drove it around the house (where she could) then we took it outside where her and big sister had a big time.
It's large, I mean LARGE! I've seen at least four children piled on that thing before I could yell out the door and tell them all to get off! :) It has faded from being left in the yard periodically. We try to put it in the garage and charge it everytime, but we do forget...for days at a time...thus, it is no longer a bright pink, but now is a light shade of pink. The car radio no longer works, I think for the same reason it's faded...being left in the yard overnight (rain).
Overall, I felt like we have gotten our money's worth out of it. She has throughly enjoyed it. But, now she wants another one...a Dora Jeep! Go figure...it sure is a heck of a lot cheaper than the Escalade.
