If you are looking for the next level for a ride-on, master the thrill of the ride with the 12 Volt Nighthawk from Rollplay.

This low-riding, high-powered ride-on goes up to 6 miles per hour—all 12 volts gave this reviewer a jolt when it powered up! And while it’s got speed, the controls are simple. There is an easily accessible power button on top, and kids simply step on the round petals to accelerate or break, allowing them to control the Nighthawk with ease.

The Nighthawk features three wheels: two at the back and one up front, so balance is the key to control as there is no steering wheel: this thrill ride is powered by kids’ body movements. Kids can maneuver around obstacles in the Nighthawk simply by leaning left and right, guiding the ride wherever they want to go.

While the product is recommended for kids ages 6 and up, definitely consider your child’s balance, dexterity, and spacial awareness abilities, too. Pro tip: Let kids sit on the Nighthawk and master their balance before powering it up for the first time. And there’s no limit to the fun—teens and tweens will love this as well.

This product is definitely designed for little thrill seekers, but make sure safety comes first. The side handlebars enable your child to remain secure while protecting his or her hands. The rear safety flag lets you keep an eye on riders when they go behind shrubs or other obstacles. And remember: helmets and pads (sold separately) are always a good idea to have on.

A little assembly is required before kids are ready to ride—but it’s uncomplicated. The Nighthawk does require a 24 hour charge before the first use, so it might be a good idea to assemble and charge before you give to kids as a gift so they can get right to the fun part. The sleek design also enables it to be cleaned easily.

While other kids may want to hop on—because the white or black Nighthawk will attract attention—the weight limit is 110 pounds and is meant for one rider at a time. And if you’re considering getting two, the Nighthawk is perfect for races. Use chalk on pavement to create a straight or curvy course, or set up cones for an obstacle course challenge.

This is a ride that inspires creativity, and exhilarates with its design and function. Not for the faint of heart, but great those kids that feel the need {clap} for speed!
