"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

  • I want one. I like the idea of turning it into a business. If anyone needs a power wheels for a movie you know where to find me :)
  • Anybody see where they hid the battery?

    It's got to be a truck size, and low to the ground. Just didn't see where they put it.
  • Well, that's an ebay bargain you missed erco.

    :)

    In the bottom, there's a quick swap door on the side.

    It would be funny if the media had to blur a Barbie Jeep exploding on the news. An arm on a rover that size has all kinds of possibilities.
