Inertia-Driven Fun with PlasmaCar Review

We celebrated our daughter’s birthday over the weekend, and thanks to the beautiful weather, were able to stay outside to play with her newest toy, the PlasmaCar.

What’s a PlasmaCar

PlasmaCar is an award-winning, innovative toy that works off of inertia, centrifugal force, and friction to move forwards, backwards, and around and around in circles. There are no pedals, batteries, or gears on the PlasmaCar, which helps keep it lightweight and easy enough to toss in the trunk for travel, outings, or entertainment on an overnight trip to Grandma’s.

PlasmaCar is the recipient of numerous awards, including Parents’ Choice Awards, Parenting Magazine Best New Toys of 2012, and the Red Tricycle Totally Awesome Award. And with multiple color options and a weight limit that goes up to 220lbs, it’s also a great way to get outside for creative play with the whole family.

Super Easy and Fun!

Hayla was immediately racing down our driveway as soon as we got the PlasmaCar assembled, and easily figured out how to turn and spin the toy by using the unique wheel and shifting her body weight without instruction from us. There are no real “instructions” on how to use the PlasmaCar, which I like because it emphasizes the idea that there’s no right or wrong way to play.

The PlasmaCar was tried out by a variety of different ages and weights, from toddler to adult. No matter the size of the rider, the PlasmaCar was able to turn and spin without any issues. We found the smooth cement floor of our garage gave us the best speed and movement from the toy, as well as causing less scrapes and dings from spills than pavement did.

True to what it says on the product’s website, the PlasmaCar is not meant to be used on grass or gravel – you just won’t get anywhere! On the plus side, when Hayla was learning how to handle the PlasmaCar, she quickly found out that the best way to stop safely if she was going to fast was to drive directly into the grass.
