Just got our check from Mattel for our broken TT that we sent back.
My son got it from Grandma and Grandmpa for Chanukah present and played with it at the cousin's house in December for 2 days. Let it swim in the pool (very cool!) and drive on the grassy ground (either controlled and very slow or sideways hard-to-control and very fast!)
Then we drove out to Grandma and Grandpa's house so they could see what they had gotten my son, and... it doesn't work.
Nothing seems mechanically wrong, but the remote does nothing, and there's no lights to tell if the device has power.
We charged the battery (no lights on the charger or battery to know if its full) for 24 hours - no change.
We called Mattel, they happily sent us another battery (they don't have any spare chargers), and charged that for 24 hours - no change.
Called Mattel back, they said to send it back - we sent it back (Mattel paid postage(!), we paid tracking) and then a few weeks later sent us a check for entire purchase price.
Maybe we got a bum one, but thought you should know.
It is 50% off tho... Maybe I should re-buy this and get two with the money we got back....
