This is a cute little car for the price. It was about $6 and recommended for ages 3 and up. My son, almost 5, enjoys sending it flying across our kitchen floor. Like most little boys he loves race cars and this is an adorable bright red one. The car is friction powered and when pulled back, then let go of, races forward automatically. It will work on our carpet, but not nearly as fast or as far.
This race car often bangs into the bottom wood in the kitchen or trim on the walls and has held up well. There are no signs of it crashing like it often does. The paint is still nice and new looking also, no chips, etc. For the price I am pleased with how this held up. I think $6 for 1 car isn't the best deal, but it has provided hours of play time for my son.
