Parents' annoyance level: 6/10. Power Wheels had expensive batteries and, when your kid would run into the house/mailbox/neighborhood cat, they were always more work than they were worth.

A child's first taste of freedom. We never felt cooler than rolling in our Jeep, sippin' on some juice, hollering at the honey bees. No, seriously. Have you ever accidentally run over an underground beehive in this? How fast do you think those Power Wheels could go? Not fast enough.
