If you’ve got a little girl who loves to copy the things that grown-ups do then the Power Wheels Barbie Jammin Jeep Wrangler could be an excellent gift choice for her. This pink and purple jeep looks funky and fun and will let your little girl drive around the yard at a safe maximum speed of 5 mph.
The Barbie Power Wheels Jammin’ Jeep Wrangler is designed for kids weighing a maximum of 130 lbs, suitable up to around the age of 5 (though it might be a bit of a squeeze to get two older children inside). The steel frame means that the vehicle remains sturdy, providing you do not exceed the weight limit, and the working doors will protect your child during the ride (as well as helping to make the ride on toy a lot more realistic).
Other safety features include only rounded, smooth edges and a lock brake system that’ll stop the vehicle from driving as soon as your child lifts their foot away from the pedal. The maximum speed on the Barbie jeep is a safe 5 mph, though the second speed setting (2.5 mph) is suitable for beginners. It moves in forward and reverse and is easy for even very young children to pick up.
One complaint that some parents have of the jeep is the fact that the wheels can spin quite easily on grass, despite the fact that it’s advertised as working on a variety of different surfaces. Unless the driving surface is very flat, you’ll either need to find a more suitable place to play or invest in some traction bands to help improve the grip.
Aside from the working doors, a few other features of the Power Wheels Barbie Jammin Jeep Wrangler help to bring it to life: an FM radio that gives you a choice of 6 tunes (not a real working FM radio), a bumper, windshield, storage area, and a range of stickers to help make the jeep look more realistic.
Many parents have reported on the fact that kids just love to sit inside and play the music, without even driving the jeep! The Barbie theme is definitely a winner in the minds of little girls, despite the fact that this “jeep” can’t quite handle the kind of terrain that its name suggests.
