Our family was sent the Step2 Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser at no cost to facilitate this review.
It’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping and if you have a child in the 4-8 age range, I have an AWESOME new toy from Step2 to introduce you to: the Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser!
I’ve been following the development of the Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser for months now. We were given the chance to preview it in person when I visited the Step2 headquarters back in August. I knew immediately that Maggie would LOVE it. When I was told that we’d have the opportunity to review it before it even hit the shelves, I was pretty excited!
The Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser™ by Step2 is a battery powered ride-on designed for kids ages 4-8 years old. Rather than a steering wheel, the Xtreme Cruiser features 2 joysticks. It’s 12 volts of power allow your child to cruise over grass, dirt or on hard surfaces in low (2.5 mph) or high (5mph) speed with the flip of a switch. What sets this ride-on apart is it’s ability move forward, backwards, spin left, then spin – 360 degrees of fun, with zero-turn capability! It is made in USA of US and imported parts (electrical and battery components made in China). Like the other Step2 toys we are accustomed to, the Spin & Go Xtreme Cruiser is made of durable, thick molded plastic. It’s certainly made to last for years of outdoor fun!
Our house doesn’t have much of a yard, and what we do have is home to our swing set, so we decided that the Xtreme Cruiser would live and Grandma & Grandpa’s house. Setting up the car was so easy, I didn’t even bother to take pictures of the setup. Just screw the joysticks into place, lift the seat to connect the battery, then charge for 16-24 hours and you’re ready to go! It’s important to note that you should let the cruiser get a FULL charge the first time you use it. This will help you get the most life and charge out of your battery over the lifetime of it.
Maggie could not wait to jump into the car and get going. She grabbed the joysticks, slammed that pedal to the ground without hesitation, and was off. She drove it all over the yard and had a blast. It took her a little bit of time to figure out which way she needed to move the joysticks to make the Cruiser turn the way she wanted, but after a few minutes she had it all figured out. The grass was rather tall and wet, so we found that high speed was the best option for her – she has a need for speed! Telling you about this Xtreme Cruiser is great, but it’s even better to SHOW you, so watch our video below:
