Zecar came to this world for a very important mission, other than entertaining us; all of the proceeds from the royalties will go towards reforestation projects in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. The funds will contribute to the planting of thousands of trees a year to help restore part of the Atlantic tropical rain forest, the most critically damaged in Brazil, with the richest variety of trees anywhere in the world. ZeCar is a very simple toy car. Just push it, and try to make it overcome small obstacles. ZeCar can even slide on its back if the going gets tough, but you don’t have to push ZeCar very hard. The car operates on a flywheel, which means that once you get it going with that first easy push, it’ll do the rest. It is also interesting because there is no need to pull it back first; just push, and watch it fly. ZeCar is a unique flywheel car in the fact that its gears are exposed, allowing you to see exactly how it functions. With its simple fun and elegant design, ZeCar is a great toy for kids, and an excellent desk toy for adults.

This product was designed by Chico Bicalho. Chico was born in Rio de Janeiro and studied at an elementary school where the football field had trees throughout, because the school was against cutting them down. Later he moved to Petropolis, RJ, an area surrounded by the South Atlantic tropical rain forest. Since 1995 he has been working with a group of friends on reforestation projects replanting native South Atlantic tropical rain forest trees.

Features:

  • Flywheel propulsion
  • Very simple fun
  • Can slide on its back
  • Push and go action
  • All proceeds go to a fund to plant trees in the vastly damaged Atlantic tropical rain forest

5 star rating  Nice Car
Barbra Dickson from San Angelo, TX
I like the fact that it moves for a long distance. The constant use has bent the metal frame a little bit, so now my cranks don't exactly fit together. If you just squeeze on the metal, it goes back into place. I really like the fact that this thing can roll over carpet as easily as cement. My 12 year old liked it as much as the two year old I bought it for.

4 star rating  Cute car, but no frills
Theodore from Lancaster, PA
I like my ZeCar quite a bit, but for me at least it serves better as a desk decoration I occasionally play with. I could see a kid enjoying this a lot, as it is sturdily built, goes pretty fast, and manages to roll over small obstacles. But it's a very simple car, it doesn't do much, though seeing the gears exposed is pretty cool.
