Good toy - Review by Paul

I really enjoyed assembling this thanks to the excellent pictorial instructions. Some small parts were fiddly, but necessary to the working of the car. It worked first time, and I'm sure my grandson will enjoy playing with it.
You will need some practical skill, and I wouldn't expect a child to assemble it without the help of a competent adult. I am a retired engineer, so have some advantage here.
Overall a clever design, good idea, and very satisfying toy, but you must have practical skills.

Very complicated ! - Review by Richard

it has taken three adults not to get this model operating. The instructions are all pictorial and there is little explanation. The car goes about 1 foot and then looses pressure. No visible issue
I have had the thing in bits and back to basics four times without success. Not recommended for youngsters. The box says 10 plus but I am 69 with a master of science degree and I cant make it go.
