This bus is very exciting to drive with my kid. It has head and tail lights that flash the signal when turning left or right. The doors open and close at the touch of a button. Another button turns the engine on or cuts it off. The remote also controls speed, forward and reverse, acceleration and deceleration, and even has a button to blow the horn! We tested it in our rug, but it is designed for flat surfaces. Too small for outdoor use. It has a charger and rechargeable battery, but the remote requires 2AA batteries not included. If it was a little bigger, with bigger tires for outdoor use, would have given a 5 star rating. However, it is certainly an excellent toy promising hours of enjoyment.
