    On this show we finish with more toys and fun gadgets from The Time To Play Magazine Holiday Showcase.

    From Mongoose and Kids Trax come a great assortment of electric vehicles. Here's info provided by the company. Join Minnie for some four-wheeled fun with the 12-Volt Disney Minnie Mouse Coupe Battery-Powered Ride-On by Kid Trax! Real opening doors, working LED headlights and Power Trax Rubber Traction Strip Tires. Moves forward at 5 MPH or 2.5 MPH in reverse. You're sure to turn heads along the way, too with a pink polka-dotted paint job, molded mouse ear seats and shiny chrome accent. This two-seater comes with a 12-Volt rechargeable battery and charger, and is designed for children ages 3+ with a maximum weight limit of 120 lbs. There is also a Mickey Mouse version. Each is $299.99 at Toys R Us. 



    The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon Ride-on is a one-seater funmobile. Power Trax rubber traction strip tires for smooth riding on slick surfaces and it comes with a 6V rechargeable battery and wall charger to keep the fun going. Safe forward and reverse speeds of 2.5 MPH ensure this one will be a hit for the whole family. The weight limit for the TMNT Party Wagon is 75 lbs and the recommended age is 3-7. I checked the price on 11/15/16 and Walmart said they had rolled the price back $50 and was selling this ride-on wagon for $129.00 with free shipping. Here's the Walmart link:



    The red Maserati Gran Turismo MC Centennial 6 Volt Powered Ride On in the video is styled to look just like the hot big-brother sports car. With lots of details and official logos molded in, this ride-on will travel at a speed of 2.5 miles per hour in forward and reverse. It can carry one driver (ages 3-7 years) with a maximum weight of 75 pounds. It comes with the battery and charger and has great features like the Direct Connect charging system and Power Trax Rubber Traction strip tires, FM Radio and an Auxiliary input, and two opening side doors.
