Bought my son an E-Revo yesterday.
He doesn't live with me so he doesn't know any of the kids in the neighborhood, and there's a few new kids that even I don't know, and of course they all come running over. I understand that. It's cool, right?
So one kid asks me if he can run the car and I said no. He says "Did you just say no?" incredulously. So I said "yep". And he was like "Why not?" I said "Because the thing cost $300, that's why."
So then they all start chasing the thing around and trying to block it while he was driving it. He got tired of that quick and stopped and picked up the car. I could tell he didn't want to drive it because of them and how they were acting.
So I said, let's take it to the parking lot at the schoolyard, figuring the little kids would not follow.
He was like the pied piper with all the other kids in tow as we walked over to the school.
Again as soon as he started running the car they were chasing it and trying to get in the way and one kid had this big foam hammer thing (like Thor) and was throwing it at the car. Odd behaviour IMHO.
I didn't say anything to the kids as I didn't know them, and again my son picked up the car and started walking home. He didn't understand why they were trying to ruin his fun. And neither did I, to be honest. Kids will be kids, I guess.
So we went inside and took it out again later when they weren't around.
Anyone else have to deal with this?
