Hot Wheels has partnered with five-time wheelchair motocross world champion and Paralympic athlete Aaron “Wheels” Foderingham to unveil his first remote-controlled wheelchair toy. The model comes with a ramp and has a great function called “Wheel Boost”.
Designed for kids five or older, the wheelchair toy is about six inches long and is capable of reaching 6 miles per hour when the wheel boost begins – a dragstar-like wheelbar attached to the rear end of the wheelchair to ensure this. It stays straight as it accelerates to its maximum speed. It comes with a fairly simple looking remote that features two joysticks and three buttons. Inspired by some of Foderingham’s impressive achievements, kids can use it for a variety of stunts, spins and jumps.
The figure in the wheelchair is a representation of the athlete who took part in the project, helping to turn the toy and is famous for its BMX-like riding style. He is significantly proud to be the first person in the world to backflip a wheelchair.
Hot Wheels will release the remote-controlled wheelchair on November 1, 2022. It will be sold on Amazon for only $ 49.99 excluding tax. The box contains toys, a remote, the above mentioned ramp, a USB charging wire, a poster of Foderingham and several stickers.
