Joybay Swing Cars on Zulily - knockoff or just as good as plasma car?
I saw they had some for $27.99 with $9.99 shipping
Anyone here have any experience with these? Should I just wait for a deal on a PlasmaCar? I am worried that I cannot find any reviews on these (except like 4 mixed reviews on amazon).
Not too sure, but I just saw these....
We have one of each, the genuine plasma car and a knockoff. The real one is definitely better built and more durable. The knockoffs front wheels broke in the first 3 months. Of course my boys use them incorrectly, pummeling down our asphalt driveway at 100mph! Still the plasma car has held up for over a year with the misuse.
Thanks, I figured that might be the case. I can't believe they can make knockoffs that look -exactly- the same, even the same colors! I guess if you have to copy the original to get sales, then there must be something wrong with your product.

Interesting that these are showing up on Zulily and Woot within the last couple of days!
We have 2 Joybay cars- I've compared them to a Plasma, and except for a couple stickers and a little ridge along the back of the seat on the Plasmacar, they are virtually the same. One warning, however, there is no costumer services for Joybay, so if you have a problem, Zulily might refund your money, but the car's a loss. Plasmacar has fantastic costumer service and if needed you can purchase replacement parts down the road. I don't know if that's worth it if the Joybay is only $30 to start with, but maybe it is to you.
Thanks for adding your personal experience. I would have hopped on the deal, but for $10 more I could get a PlasmaCar and the customer service (and two day free shipping at Amazon) that you mentioned. I will say that I have dealt with Zulily's customer service and they have been fantastic. I was just too nervous to buy one and then not be able to return it if I simply didn't like it.
