"All the fun of the fair at home" claims Maplin and we might just have to agree.

These funky, brightly-coloured bumper cars offer a top speed of two miles per hour - fast enough for your 2- to 6-year-old no doubt, and give 40 minutes of drive time on each charge.

House-proud parents will be grateful to note that the non-marking foam bumpers protect the car - and the environment around it.

They're £49.99 each, or, on offer from Maplin at the moment for two for £79.98.
