Barbie Cruisin’ Corvette R/C™ - Review

I received product for review from Toy State.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Barbie is over 55 years old and is still going strong.  It seems that almost every child is familiar with the iconic doll.  I'll admit that I like watching to see what new things come out for Barbie.  One new item is the Barbie Cruisin’ Corvette R/C™  from Toy State, a leader in the manufacture of radio controlled vehicles and construction toys.   

Kids can take Barbie on the road trip of her dreams with the Barbie™ Cruisin’ Corvette R/C. Exclusively designed and styled with chrome paint in the iconic Barbie™ hot pink, this car fits any size Barbie™ doll and features full-function forward and reverse RC action.
This R/C car requires several batteries that are not included.  Two AAA are required for the remote and five AA are required for the car.  That seems like a lot of batteries but it's a lot of fun to play with, so that makes up for it.  

The remote control is pretty easy to handle and maneuver.  There is no on/off switch.  It will turn on automatically when you move the stick.  There are buttons on the undercarriage of the vehicle that will link the controller to the car.  The remote control has a large pink base with two buttons and a steering wheel.  Pressing one button will make the car go forward while pressing the other button makes it go in reverse.  Turning the steering wheel is what makes it move from side to side.  

The details of the car are snazzy and a Barbie doll can fit comfortably in the seat.  In fact, another Barbie can go along for the ride in the passenger seat.  The Barbie Cruisin’ Corvette R/C has become a favorite among the young'uns that come over to visit.  I'm not going to lie, I've even toyed around with it myself!

Oh yeah, I would have loved this when I was a girl. I had all kinds of plans for Barbie's future, but I never thought of chrome. This car is hot. Totally looking for it to get my as a Christmas gift for my granddaughter.
