Doing toy reviews can be tough, soul searching work. Sure, the idea of playing with toys all day probably sounds like fun to you, but every once in a while you run into a toy like the Razor Power Rider 360. The Power Rider 360 has me resenting the fact that I wasn’t born 8 years ago. I mean I thought I had a good childhood, but really how could I have, since this crazy fun electric 360 degree spinning ride on did not exist when I was a kid. Maybe I’m living a lie…you see how tough this work can be?
Okay, I did my deep breathing and I’m back now. While the Razor PowerRider 360 will make you wish you were a kid again, I’m assuming you probably have a few kids of your own running around who might be interested in a spinning, electric ride-on. Please watch our video review of the Razor PowerRider 360 -

No, You Won’t Spend Hours Assembling The Power Rider 360
If you are like me you, the moment you see a cool ride-on you start thinking, “how hard is it to assemble that thing!” Thankfully the PowerRider 360 is very easy to assemble. It probably took me about 20 minutes to assemble, start to finish. While assembly is quick, you will need to charge it up, which can take up to 12 hours – so it is not something you can assemble and then ride right away.
Power, 360 Degree Spins – What Could Go Wrong?
I have to admit, as a Dad it was a little freaky to watch the kids get the PowerRider 360 going top speed and then throw the wheel and do crazy spins and drifts. At first you think they are going to go flying off – but luckily that is not the case. We had no accidents in testing the PowerRider 360. The three wheel, low to the ground tricycle design gives great stability and it seems highly unlikely the kids could flip the thing.
Most importantly, what did the kids think? They loved the PowerRider 360! At first they thought it was a motorized tricycle, which was not that exciting. Once they got on and realized you could do spins and drifts – they loved it. The only negative – after about 40 minutes of continuous use, you need to recharge.
Spring is here, the days are getting longer and if you are looking for a way to keep the kids outside until the sun sets, get them a Razor Power Rider 360 and watch them spin with delight.
