Thats right! My son and I built our first car together. Such a proud moment for a Dad. From a very young age I was working on things and turning wrenches. I love the fact that my son has such a love and imagination for cars. I had no idea that such a place as this existed. Ridemakerz is basically a Build-A-Bear for cars. You select your body, chassis, rims, tires and accessories. Of course this can get expensive quick. As far as quality, the cars are ok. We upgraded Liam’s car to the remote control option so he could drive his car.
It does not have much of a range and you have to let off the throttle to steer, but it’s still fun. They offer a rechargeable battery upgrade that also gives it a power boost, I recommend it as it also makes it drive easier. For me, it was the experience of building it in the shop with my son. Well worth the cost. I was fortunate to have someone there to take a few photos with my camera. They just melt my heart. I love being a Dad!
I had 2 Gopro cameras on me, I wish I had positioned them and recorded the car building process. Maybe the next time my son and I are here I will document it in video.
I recommend that all Dad’s bring your boys here. It’s a great bonding moment.
