The Power Wheels Kawasaki KFX Ninja has “ultimate terrain traction” so that kids can safely maneuver this type of electric ride on toys around and about all sorts of adventurous places. This toy is recommended for children ages 3 years and up. For those youngsters desiring the thrill and adventure of ATV riding, but whose parents aren’t really up to purchasing a real ATV for their child, this brand of is just right.
This model of power wheels toys utilizes a 12-volt rechargeable battery to provide the power and excitement that kids get from riding this Kawasaki Ninja. A battery charger is included with purchase as well as the battery. This Kawasaki version of battery powered ride on toys is meant to roll through mud, gravel, road ruts, and wet grass just as part of a typical day. It is next to impossible to get this toy stuck in a situation it can’t dig its way out of.
The Power Wheels Kawasaki KFX Ninja provides two forward speeds: 2.5 and 5.0 mph. For beginners, a mechanism ensures they can’t go 5.0 mph until they have been “battle-tested” and are up to the challenge.
The tires on this type of electric riding toys are 13 ½ inches of solid, sturdy, travel-ready rubber. They are excellent at gripping on rough terrain and they have colored shock boot covers, as well as a realistic metal handlebar design. The Ninja has a color display that will indicate when it’s time for the battery to be charged. Kids in our testing session most often described it as, “Cool!” and “Awesome.”
This version of power wheels toys can hold up to 65 pounds of tiny tot driver. During our testing session, the wheels on one of our top electric ride on toys proved very powerful and forceful. They definitely offer a lot of traction to keep your little one from getting stuck. Parents thought this toy was a great off-road model. As with any new toy, especially a moving transportation toy, adult supervision is recommended.
Assembly on the Power Wheels Kawasaki KFX Ninja is straight-forward and fairly easy to accomplish, reported our staff assistants. During the testing, one little boy was observed running into everything he possibly could – a tree trunk, RAM!, into a rock wall, RAM again! While our testers cringed (the little boy was wearing a safety helmet), this model of electric toys just kept going. This little test participant probably gave this toy the worst abuse of all the kids present. While abusive behavior is obviously not recommended, this scenario did prove that the toy could hold up to a more than moderate amount of attempted destruction. Both toy and participant came out intact.
One note from our staffers: let the batteries recharge for a period of 24 hours before the first use. If you follow the instructions in the manual, the battery can last for a good long while. By following the directions for charging the battery, the toy can last longer in one day than your toddler can – imagine that!
