PlasmaCar

It’s like magic, but you don’t need to be a magician to get it to work. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power, by harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. It’s so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface.

I was recently given a PlasmaCar to review here on The Dirty Shirt, and while reviewing is what I do here I have to say that this particular product has brought me something more than the typical joy I get out of seeing my children play, and I will get to that in a second, but here are the specifics of the PlasmaCar.
PlasmaCar

PlasmaCar is made from state-of-the-art, high-quality ABS plastics, rugged and durable. Kids will like its looks because it´s vivid, sleek and aerodynamic, just like a racecar. No batteries, no power-cells, no liquid fuel are required. It´s so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface. For the kids, the PlasmaCar is pure energy and pure fun. For the folks, it´s safe, inexpensive, and quiet.

The PlasmaCar has been nothing but a amazingly great toy for my kids to play with, they zoom around the house either one at a time or with the older kids giving the youngest a ride, screaming and laughing and having a great time. Heck I am not ashamed to admit that I too, have gotten on and zipped though the house, and no, video won’t be shown even though hubby did get some. So for me the PlasmaCar has been a blessing, something I love because my kids love it and have so much fun with it.

Now I want to share with you the special thing the PlasmaCar did for my family. First I would like you to meet my nephew, D…

A little background on D, he is on the Autism Spectrum, and at the age of almost 4 he is just starting to do things that some younger kids are doing, reaching milestones that they are reaching. He is a bit behind and my sister has found it hard to find things that capture and hold his attention for a good amount of time. He has tried to ride a bike but didn’t like it, we are not sure what about it he didn’t like but he refused to ride a bike.

I see the struggle in emotions that my sister and her husband go through during times like trying to find something that he likes. It breaks my heart! So any time I bring the kids to see him or they come to our house we try to come up with things that he may be interested in. The day after I received the PlasmaCar I was invited to her house and decided to bring it along to show my sister how much fun it was and to see if it may spark D’s interest.

I was so touched to see him get on it and figure out how to maneuver it all on his own. The look on my sister’s face was priceless and brought tears to my eyes seeing her so proud of her son. His like of the PlasmaCar was extremely evident when I had to leave and take the car with me so I could fully review it. This prompted a massive search of stores throughout Orlando to find this car right away. My sister went everywhere, but never found it. She didn’t want to order it and wait for delivery, but that looked like what was going to happen. I did however find it the next day at a store near me and bought it for him right away, called her and they immediately came over to pick it up.

My sister was so happy to have been able to get the PlasmaCar for D and I am thrilled with the results it has had with him. So not only do I recommend this product to everyone for the sheer fun it is but if you too have a child on the Autism Spectrum, this car may be just the thing to help them out. (these results may not be the same as ours,  I am just sharing with you the results that I/my sister have had with this product.)

    We have one of these at my house and my kids love it. I cannot tell you how many of our friends, including myself have got on it for a ride too! We have tile floors, so we can ride it around the house with no problems!

    This is such a cool little scooter. Our kids would have a blast riding it around. And the neighbors’ kids. And the neighbors. And US! :)
