A cordless, one-button remote controls this car. Pressing the button on the remote operates the car. Press and hold the button down to drive forward. Release the button and then press again to drive in circles. The car is always in motion. When the car is on, lights flash and an engine sound is heard. When driving, screeching tires and beeps can be heard and spinning gears can be seen through the windows of the car. It requires four AA batteries (included) and 1 9V battery, sold separately. BPA-free and lead-free.
