The Glow In The Dark Driver Ejecting Bumpercrafts

These are the phosphorescent, remote controlled bumpercrafts that pit two players in a duel to literally unseat an opponent driver. Only available from Hammacher Schlemmer, each bumpercraft has an impact area button on its left and right; when the button is struck by an opposing bumpercraft, a built-in spring ejects the craft's driver out of its seat. Each player controls one of the bumpercrafts with a radio-controlled remote that provides forward, backward, left, and right movement up to 10' away. Best when played on smooth, level surfaces, each bumpercraft moves on two partially concealed drive wheels and one guide wheel. Recovered drivers are easily clicked back into place. Requires 10 AAA batteries. Ages 6 to 12. 5" L x 5" W x 5" H. (2 lbs.)
