The Plasma Car or “11 Steps To Making A Review Video”

Posted by on May 6th, 2011, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

We’ve decided to revamp our “Equipment” posts and this one is our first attempt. Think of them as experiments while we find our “inner voice”, our “mantra”, our “authentic vocal exchange”.

The coolest car of all timeBehold an eco-friendly toy vehicle. Just add biceps!

Our first review is for a rad item… The Plasma Car

The kids love it. Finn is 19 months and he already rides the thing like Dennis Hopper in “Easy Rider” (sans drug use and motorcycle).

But listen. Don’t try this at home. We like to ride these cars ourselves. They do, in fact, belong to our sons, we know. But you know what? What they don’t know won’t kill them and they need to learn to share anyway. So, there.

If you’re technical dad, and want specs, go here: DUDE, TECH SPECS

Watch Charlie in the video below and learn more about this unique and fantastic apparatus…

Or you could watch Andy and Lucas’ near-death experience as they rode tandem…

So there you have it. The Plasma. It rocks. It’s not meant for adult use (as far as we know and based on our own talent with it).

Buy it here or our sons don’t eat tonight: PlasmaCar Blue

    My daughter wants to know if there is an AWD Turbo version available.

    I liked watching the near-death experience from the driver’s POV. But… You know… You’re probably supposed to hold the KID, not your iPhone, while you’re careening and caroming around.

      Hey! He had a protective suit surrounding him. Me. On my lap, sandwiched between my legs is plenty safe. Plus, that’s an anamatronic Lucas we built, so no danger actually befell any little ones in the making of this video.

    I promise you my husband is actually a really intelligent and responsible man, although you couldn’t tell by this post. I think turning 30 got to him a little ;)

    Lol!!! We have one! I swear there is a market for a bigger sized version that they are missing. It’s the coolest toddler toy ever. Everyone else used it more than it’s intended driver. :)

      I know. That was my first thought. Andy actually custom’d it out by building it out into a larger vehicle. The frame was the same, but the thing was a giant monstrosity. I think it even had a custom muffler..? Awesome.

    I want one!!! For my kids…not me…really…I’m telling the truth…

    • andy says:

      You won’t regret it. Especially if you have anything near you that you could call “downhill.” But you didn’t hear that from me.

  7. Stephanie G says:

    Hahahaha!!

    That reminds me of the Roller Racer from my early childhood.
