The car can be used with the in-car controls, using the pedal, forwards/reverse gear-lever and steering wheel, or can be used remotely with the parental control. The parental radio remote can operate from up to around 20m away and controls forwards/reverse and moves the steering wheel left and right. The car comes with a cable which plugs in to the dashboard, allowing an MP3 player or any other device with a headphones socket to be plugged in, and the music is played through the car speakers! Plugging in a device disables the in-car sounds! The car has a seat belt fitted, to keep your child safe if using the parental remote option. This is a single seater car, but has a larger seat, so is suitable for older children. The car also has working front lights.
