As seen on television, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Patrol Buggy ATVs are two vehicles that snap together to become one! The first buggy is designed and decorated for Leo and Raph; the second buggy is for Don and Mike. Both buggies feature a flip lever that launches the front vehicle from the rear and also includes shooting projectiles. They can also snap together to become a group vehicle so all 4 Turtles can ride together.
