Have you heard of the Rollplay Nighthawk? It is a super fun outdoor ride-on toy for kids aged 6+. The Nighthawk is the latest addition to the Rollplay ride-on portfolio for preteens allowing you to ride and glide in style. The girls were super excited when I told them we were getting the Rollplay Nighthawk to review.
The product information says that it is meant for kids 6+ so I was a little bit worried about Sienna trying it but she is just a savvy little girl so I thought that with my supervision it should be okay.
About The RollPlay Nighthawk
Riders steer the Nighthawk by leaning into the curve, while gas and brake pedals allow variable speed control. Handlebars placed either side of the seat protect hands and offer complete control, and there’s a rear flag for safety.
With a 2 metre turning radius, Nighthawk runs at a max speed of 12 km/h for kids 6 years plus. The 12V battery is quickly rechargeable overnight and has a run time of approximately 60 minutes. The Nighthawk is available in both white and red with an RRP of £170.

How the Rollplay Nighthawk Works
We received the Rollplay Nighthawk one day and the safety gear another day. The safety gear is not part of the Rollplay Nighthawk. You will need to get this separately and I recommend you to do it as it is a fast toy so you want to avoid any issues.
You don’t have to put it together as it arrives already assembled. It also has a heavy-duty solid rubber wheel. The day we received the Rollplay Nighthawk we left it charging overnight. It is very easy to do. You only need to lift the seat using a coin to unlock it twisting the battery screw off and then you will see the cables inside. You just need to connect them and plug the charger and that will do to charge the battery for 24 hours prior to use.
The next day after charging the battery the Rollplay Nighthawk was ready to be used. There are 2 pedals to use: one is the accelerator and the other on the brake. It is very simple and easy to get to grips with.
It took about 5 minutes for the girls to master balancing it. After that, they quickly learned how to turn just shifting their weight without using the handles. It runs well on concrete but not so well on grass. It is very easy to control once you get the hang of balancing it. Sienna who is only 4 years old has no issues riding it and is a bit of an expert now!
I can’t complain about battery life. An overnight charge typically gets us a few hours of play. It’s fairly lightweight and my girls have been playing on it a lot since we got it. I also think that the price is so much more affordable than the other ride on toys.
Our Thoughts on our Rollplay Nighthawk
Overall the Rollplay Nighthawk has been a success with Bella and Sienna. They both absolutely love it. The Nighthawk itself looks and feels to be of good quality and fairly light too which is a bonus. Definitely, a great outdoor toy to get the kids entertained for a few hours.
