Wacky Wheelers are now able to supply the awesome "Drover" Land Rover replica kids vehicle.
|The Drover really is the ultimate when it comes to children's vehicles. It is not a 'build it yourself' vehicle such as a Reallife Toys car, but instead comes fully constructed ready to go - with a very high specification. Each vehicle is hand crafted in the UK way in excess of the relevant EU standards, and unsurprisingly is built to last for years and years.|
We at Wacky Wheelers have oodles of experience about kids and replica cars, so when we discovered the Drover we instantly approved. Independent suspension on the front with alloy wishbones for example - they just aren't found on other comparable vehicles (they're only a relatively new addition on real Range Rovers and Land Rovers!). A CD/Radio unit built into the vehicle for even more entertainment and for safety there's seatbelts and a steel framed windscreen which gives more support in case of any mishaps.
|.The vehicle itself is based on a powder coated tubular steel chassis, designed and built to last, and the body is vaccuum formed with an acrylic abs coating to give it extra strength. Its easily powerful enough and strong enough to tow the optional trailer - even with a passenger on board - just like the real thing!|
This is how a Wacky Wheelers kids car driving party works...
These jeeps fit two at a time - so there's always plenty of people having fun on the track at any one time. Apart from the first drive of the party (someone has to drive!) you'll start off as a passenger. The music starts and the jeeps are then driven around one of our brightly coloured totally safe, 10m by 15m inflatable tracks. Each piece of music is timed to last 3 minutes and when the music stops, that's the signal to stop the jeep. The driver will get out, you'll slide across into the driver's seat and a new passenger will join your car as you get ready to drive. Of course, theres always two Wacky Wheelers organisers helping you all the time so it wont be too confusing.
|When your turn finishes, you make your way to the off-track activity area where you can play on the activities included in our parties. We've got Giant Connect-4, and mini table football to keep you occupied, or you can just watch and cheer on your friends! You'll be so busy, that before you know it, it will be time to get back on that track again and hone those motoring skills to get ready for your driving test...|
Gradually the track changes slightly... there are now some traffic cones to negotiate, and then some more appear as soon as you've mastered negotiating a couple! The better the drivers the harder the course gets - and you have to make sure you really get the jeeps lined up to make it around the wiggly course! Everyone will now have the opportunity to take their Wacky Wheelers 'driving test'. With all the driving practice from earlier in the day, you should have no problems in passing your test. If it's been chosen by your mum or dad, you might even get one of our fantastic driving licences - just like theirs - in a handy laminated credit card size.
After the driving test has taken place the fab and groovy people from Wacky Wheelers will arrange all the cars in a fan shape under the arch, make them all safe, and then you can all climb onto the cars ready for the 'Team Photo' - a fantastic keepsake and reminder of a fabulous day.
As soon as the photos have been taken, the Wacky Wheelers team remove all but one Jeep from the track, and ask everyone except the birthday boy or girl to stand around the outside edge of the track.
|Our VIP for the day climbs aboard a jeep all prepared for the victory laps with flags hanging from the back. As there's nothing else on the track, the speed of the Jeeps are switched up to 'high'* ready for a drive of their life... They will be introduced to the waiting fans to the sound of the Formula one Theme tune (Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" suitably edited) counted down before he or she drives around at super high speed while everybody sings happy birthday and cheers them on.|
They are then brought to a halt with an authentic racing chequered flag waved over their heads.Sometimes, if the floors are slippy enough, the Wacky Wheelers team will help will spin the jeeps out on the turns so they go round sideways like a real rally driver! If the party is shared, then the Wacky Wheelers organiser will turn it into a race between a max of 2 jeeps, which somehow always ends in a draw...This is a great high note end to the driving part of the party, and the drivers climb out of their cars to big cheers and applause.
Now you're all together in one group, the Wacky Wheelers organiser will ask you to help him deflate the track, which is an experience in itself... and having led you around the track will lead you all to the table to have your slap up birthday meal.
While you are out of the way having your tea, the Wacky Wheelers crew will pack up the Jeeps, track and other equipment to make sure nobody can get up to any mischief, whilst leaving the music until last so that you can listen while you eat. If your mums and dads have chosen them, the Wacky Wheelers organiser will present the amazing driving licences at the end of tea.
As the party is nearly over, its almost time to go home. To help make your mums and dads life easier when trying to work out what to give you at the end as a party bag, the people from Wacky Wheelers have got some options such as the Driving Licences, Wacky Wheelers Jeep Driving Expert medals, Keyrings, Badges; Wacky Wheelers Party Bags, even T shirts ! They can even help with cakes and party food, so all your mum and dad have to do is turn up for the party, sit back and enjoy watching you all have the best fun !
Remember - if its not a Wacky Wheelers party, it could turn out Wheelie bad... ;)
