He couldn't wait to get it out of the box and have a play. Inside the box we discovered the zero gravity Batmobile and the remote control that projects the bat symbol. The vehicle itself was a lot lighter than we'd expected, but I guess it has to be to drive on walls and ceilings!
At first it was a little confusing as the instructions weren't clear, however we soon figured out that the remote required 6 AA batteries (and a small Philips screwdriver to open the compartment). Once these were installed the Batmobile required charging by plugging in to a small wire that was stored away in the handle of the remote.
After a little while it was ready to go! Ben was in disbelief when I told him that that the car could climb walls so of course that was the first thing he wanted to do! The walls in the kitchen are the smoothest so we tried it in there, as the walls are painte a light colour, at first the the projected batsymbol was difficult to see, but after closing the curtains, this was resolved and to Ben's amazement, the Batmobile whizzed around the walls to follow wherever he pointed the light! (To watch it in action, see our short video below).
It also worked really well on the wooden floor of the kitchen and Ben loved to send it in a frenzy around the light, not unlike a cat chasing it's tail!

We were sent the Air Hogs Zero Gravity Batmobile for the purpose of this review.
