Indeed i am:w00t::p

Bought one like these from Maplins for about £29.99 last year, dont think they sell them anymore so this may be cheapest at the moment.

I saw them in Maplins for £24.99 around last xmas amd they looked pretty rubbish for that. Certainly not worth £47 and a rrp of £130 is taking the urine somewhat. :roll:

Even my father-in-law who buys all kinds of tat, especially from Maplins didnt think much to it .... He bought my son a RC Hovercraft from Maplins last xmas instead ... and what a useless paperweight that turned out to be too LOL

... Kevw, itll be interesting to know exactly how much running time you do get in reality for your 8 hours charge. I would imagine the quoted 40minutes is under factory conditions - ie without a kid riding it and the time taken until it reaches a complete standstill rather than until it has so little power that it wouldnt move with the weight of an apple on it. Certainly not very cost or environment friendly on your electricity bill.

I have only charged it once so cant really comment but seems to hold the charge well enough; not used it much as it scares our 2 year old too much when he sits in it and it moves but maybe when he is older he will enjoy. £25-30 is a good deal, £47 is near what maplins list price so lukewarm.
