A Roller Racers is a human powered vehicle and children’s toy. The vehicle consists of a plastic seat with wheels on its bottom, attached to T style handlebars by a pin joint. The handlebars also have wheels, attached to what would be the vertical portion of the “T”. In the 1980’s, the Roller Racer was sold under the WHAM-O brand name, but is now sold by the Mason Corporation.
The method of propulsion is what makes this and the plasma car unique. One moves (forward only) by oscillating the handlebars. Propulsion is difficult during turns, so they can be made only while coasting.1 Comment
