Toy StateJust in-time for the Holiday Season, my friends at Toy State hit us with a fresh batch of new rides to put to the test right here at Rock Father HQ. Among the new offerings to capture the interest of my car-obsessed little ones was one of the all-new Road Rippers Street Beatz vehicles. With lights, sound, music, and motorized action, the girls have been racing this new ride around the family room, having to opt out of our traditional "road test" on the sidewalk... since there's already snow on the ground.

The pulsating speakers are an interesting, and exceptionally-intriguing feature for the kids, one that I've not seen on other vehicles in the past. Check out the Instagram Video below to catch this ride in-action:
