Bought this at Walmart for my 4 y/o today....

It's perfect for a kid or someone looking for a little fun without breaking the bank.
$29.99
4 wheel drive
motors on the axles
1 9v, 6 AA, not included
27mhz with 3 (A,B,C) channels so you play with 3 of these without interference
About 12.5 inches long with roughly 4" tires

Its seems to have some kind of unlocking mechanism that stops driving the axles when the tires bind up, which I think is good so you can't break it as easily. It's a bit fast for a crawler, but for my kid this should work great since he won't only be crawling with it. I've been looking to get him something for a while, but I can't justify buying $200+ crawler for a 4 y/o. Most cars in the $30 to $50 range are crap, so it was nice to find something that so far appears to be worth while.

To whom it may concern: This thing works much better w/ rechargable batterys. Just Sayin'. :thumbsup:
