Zero gravity car buying guide

What should you pay attention to when buying zero gravity toy cars?

Sustainability

There are quite a few differences in quality between toy car brands. Just look at the difference between Force1 and Air Hogs, you can clearly feel the quality.

But none of the toys on this list can compete with the quality of real toy cars as we reviewed here.

With such new hype-like toys, people usually don't look so much at quality but more at function, and these cars certainly have that.

Quality of driving

With toy cars you want them to be able to drive well. With such RC cars you especially want them to steer well.

You can drive the Force1 car yourself with the controller, which is fun but can be difficult for younger children.

The Air Hogs has a laser pointer, very easy for small children but not so much fun for older kids.

Replayability

Much of the car's replayability is in how well it drives, but there are other factors that determine how often they return to it.

Age also plays a part. Is it a car that stays on the left after toddlerhood or can it last longer because it is also suitable for older children?

I rated each of the cars on this list on these parts on a 5-point scale.

  • Controllable with remote control
  • Do not leave stains on the wall
Less good
  • Doesn't run on carpet
  • Battery life is very disappointing

This is one of the best zero g cars because you can drive it yourself with the remote control.

It will ride on any smooth surface, including walls, ceilings, floors and even glass! Unfortunately, it does not work on carpet.

This rechargeable toy car has bright LED lights and an aerodynamic dual-mode rc car design that allows 360° driving on the floor or on the wall.

We didn't get streaks or stains on our white wall so they're doing pretty well.

It's also nice that it has a rechargeable battery so you don't have to put new ones in the car every time.

It works because there is a small fan on the bottom of the car. Together with pieces of fabric on the sides of the car, it creates a vacuum so that it can “stick” to anything.

It is not very small but not too big either at 15 x 9 cm and the charging time is about 60 minutes. The battery is a bit less, with about 11 minutes of playtime.

It often says 20 minutes in ads, but that's only if you just drive it on the floor.

Suitable for children from 6 years.

Less good
  • You cannot send yourself
  • Only works on very smooth walls

A funny cheap set that can also ride on the wall. Air Hogs has brought a lot of innovative toys to the market.

This one is like a cat chasing a laser pointer. The car tries to grab the pointer where you aim it every time.

To make it more interesting, it keeps circling the pointer a bit so that something happens continuously, even if you hold the pointer still.

This makes it very easy for small children to have fun with it because you don't have to steer yourself.

On the other hand, you can unfortunately not steer yourself, which makes it a bit boring at a certain point.

It is clearly aimed at younger children than Force1's zero g car.

This car can also be charged via USB, which makes it a bit easier.

It is slightly less powerful than the Force1 and actually only works on very smooth walls. A little bit of texture and it won't work anymore.

Best for
  • Building the road pieces is fun
  • Easy to play with two at a time
Less good
  • Not really zero gravity but more like a rollercoaster

This set is about making a track where the cars “stick” to.

The parts are easy to click together so you can actually build whatever you want, and the flexible pieces allow for crazy loops.

Aimed at children aged 3 to 6 with glow in the dark track and LED lights on the cars.

There is no big secret here about how it is possible that they manage to beat the laws of nature. The cars are clamped to the track, much like a rollercoaster works.

Still, it is a very nice toy, especially for toddlers and small preschoolers.

Conclusion

Zero gravity is a great idea and these brands have turned it into super fun toys. Unfortunately at the expense of build quality, but good for quite a few hours of fun.
