The best 12V car will be able to accommodate greater weights than 6V electric cars. Because of this, they can be operated by kids aged slightly older, typically up to 8 year of olds. The best 6V electric cars are better suited for kids that are aged between 3 and 5 year olds. Because the size and weights of the kids vary, this age range is only an estimate. For the best recommendations, you can also create inquiries or read the retailer’s product description so as to determine if the kids ride will be suitable. Once your kids are slightly older, they may like to play with Lego Star Wars sets or even Lego Technic sets.
I bought this for my 18 months old son who wears 3T (He is a big boy). He loves it. It took a few minutes for him to learn how to pedal, but after a few tries, he was able to drive the jeep in the yard. He is still too young to use the steering wheel (doesn't know how to turn right/left), but he loves it. I can see him driving this for the next 2-3 years. On top of that, the price is great. Love this!
Power Wheels Desert Drifters are the Power Wheels you coveted as a child, but all done up Mad Max-style - complete with spikes, spears, and other automatic weapons (of the foam dart variety). Your kids can pretend to be rogue gangs, by-the-book or disillusioned MFP officers, or just regular folks trying desperately to survive in a dystopian version of the future Land Down Under. These Power Wheels Desert Drifters have a top forward speed of 7.5 mph and can take quite a lot of hits (and driving) before needing a battery recharge. That's right, with Power Wheels Desert Drifters, your kids won't be fighting over gasoline - they'll be fighting over the extension cord. Just make sure they understand who runs Bartertown. YOU run Bartertown!

The KFX features a very sleek and shiny design and styling to mimic the real off-roading ATV. The handle features a throttle mechanism that can propel the KFX to a maximum of 6 MPH. For younger daredevils, Mom and Dad can limit the speed to just 3 MPH so junior will not necessarily injure himself or herself. It’s got a low profile so kids can easily get onto the comfortable seat. There are foot rests allowing this electric car for kids to drive easily and effortlessly.
The tractors offers two speeds: 2-1/4 and 4-1/2 miles per hour speeds. They also offer a reverse functionality as well as automatic brakes. The tractors have a 4WD which will simplify the driving experience for baby along various kinds of uneven surfaces including the lawns in the compound. As a protection feature, it gives parents the capability to control speeds thanks to a second gear lockout feature.
The popular F-150 truck now comes in a miniature model just for toddlers. They can ride almost anywhere in this adorable truck because it has wide, tough tires that grip easily to many surface types. It works well in grass and on any hard surface, and the truck can go up to 3.5 miles per hour. Even though that seems like a high speed for toddlers, it does have a grand safety mechanism. The automatic brake system stops the truck immediately when the driver’s foot comes off of the pedal. This alone will prevent many injuries and mishaps from occurring. Kids can ride in forward or reverse with easy manipulation of the controls. By maneuvering the truck, children learn the principles of cause-and-effect quickly. Also at practice when using the vehicle are gross motor skills, self-confidence building, and balance abilities. Probably the most unique attribute of this F-150 truck is that when the hood is lifted, kids can see the pretend engine. If that is not enough to get the little ones excited, it also comes with a large truck bed for storing things, genuine-looking side view mirrors and a great windshield. This neat vehicle will last for many years because of its durable construction of hard plastic materials.
Let them explore their more adventurous side in this safe durable easy to drive ride-on. It has an automatic brake which will kick in as soon as their foot is off the accelerator, two speed shifter and a reverse gear which will hit a top speed of 5mph even on grass. The speed lock-out allows parents to decide when they are ready to gear up to max speed.
My daughter likes this car but not at the beginning. Using the remote control works well since she cannot reach the pedals yet. the only issue is that when you go forward or backward, in the low speed, it jerks quick and hard. The first time I put my daughter in it and went to drive forward that hard jerk motion scared her and I had to take her out. She was scared of it and would not get back on it for maybe two months. She is okay with the jerking now. Now I must say that she was only a year and a few months old when I bought it so she was very small. Other than that, I think it's a really good product for a really good price. I'm happy and would recommend it to others.
Make sure that you do not let older kids or adults ‘try out’ the electric car or dune buggies, because it is likely that they will damage or even break the dune buggies chassis. This is will cause some stress to your kids so we recommend taking a look at a fidget spinner to calm them down if they get into this situation. Set clear boundaries with family and friends that this is best for younger, lighter people, and that you’ve spent quite a bit of time and money putting it together with your child. You really don’t want to have to explain to your kids why the wheels of their favorite popped out from underneath Uncle Joey’s seat!

Now heres a Jeep Wrangler for two, and sturdy enough to have two 5 year-olds exploring the garden in no time. The 12-volt battery supply does increase the drive able time considerably over 6 volt cars, and this jeep can get to 5 mph, and features a reverse mode. The styling for this miniature Jeep is quite realistic and it looks exactly like the real thing, of course minus the Disney Frozen colors along with the graphics.
Safety is always a concern for parents, with the Arctic Cat they can rest assured. High-speed lock-out allows them to decide when their child is ready to go from 2.5mph to 5mph and it also includes safety belts and bucket seats to ensure they stay in the car at all times. Power-lock brakes will stop the car as soon as they remove their foot from the accelerator pedal. It also offers a reverse gear for them to get themselves out of a spot of bother.
The tractors offers two speeds: 2-1/4 and 4-1/2 miles per hour speeds. They also offer a reverse functionality as well as automatic brakes.

As a protection feature, it gives parents the capability to control speeds thanks to a second gear lockout feature.

There is also the issue of warranty. This is also an important consideration. Every miniature car that you purchase must come with a warranty. After all, they are going to cost you upwards of $200 and in some cases, up to $1,000. You also need to look at the reliability of these kids toys before purchasing. How long will the kids vehicle last, especially when it will be driven on the lawn and other mild off-road conditions around the home.
So far this thing rocks! Great for the price. Works well- lights and sound are great. The remote is an awwwwesome feature, as we bought this for a 2 year old. With this price point you miss a few frills though. You manually have to switch it from automatic to remote mode, and the button to do this is in the car. It is also controlled by either all manual or all remote. When in remote mode, the child isn't in control at all (which may be good for some!). I just wish my daughter could press the gas and I could steer. However, when using he remote the child can override the steering, though it doesn't sound good when this happens (like it may break?) :/ Also, there is no battery level or charge indicator- you just have to guess and wing it. Having two speed options is great. However, the stop and go is a really jolt-y on the fast speed though. The music feature on horn is really fun. The car has an MP3 connection that works, though nowhere to place any device you'd have in there. Not an important feature to me, so no big deal. Directions were a nightmare- super vague. But all in all, it is a fantastic product for the price! I love it and really hope it lasts a long time!
Lastly, motorized vehicles for kids, when used with friends, helps greatly improve social development. They learn the value of taking turns and of sharing their vehicles with other children. When friends ride along as passengers, they learn that it is a lot more enjoyable to drive and ride in the company of friends than doing it alone. This helps foster friendships and more mutually beneficial relationships.
Want to your kids to experience the thrill of riding an ATV right on your backyard? Here is an awesome, real life looking ATV, and suited to slightly rougher terrain than most electric cars we looked at. 12 volts of power, two speeds forwards through the realistic twist grip speed selector (gas pedal is on the floor), and a reverse mode, this option is good for many hours worth of playtime.

In 1998, Fisher-Price undertook a monumental recall of up to 10 million Power Wheels 12 volt and Super 6 volt vehicles manufactured since 1986. The recall and repair program was conducted to replace battery fuses and strengthen battery connectors in order to prevent the units from overheating. The main difference of a post recall Power Wheel is that the original "H" (or on very early Power Wheels, "S") connectors are removed and replaced with the larger, black "A" connectors. If a Power Wheels ride-on was built in or before 1998 and has the Black "A" connectors, then the recall work has probably been performed.
Another factor we took into account is the authenticity of the product.  We want to remain culturally relevant, whether it is using a keyed-ignition for the design or a push-button starter, a manual or automatic stick shift.  Whatever a child witnesses in their everyday life with Mom and Dad, or other adults on TV, we wanted it to reflect in our products — the look and the feel! Who wouldn’t want the authentic chrome-look of wheels on a Ford F-150 truck?

* SHIPPING ... Comes in HUGE heavy box. The box was undamaged, but the left motor broke off in transit, and cracked the frame. I decided to repair it myself instead of waiting for replacement parts (or trying to cram it back in the box), & noticed a design flaw - the rear electric motors (rear wheel drive, each wheel has its own motor) are not attached well at all, I believe there's a good chance they will eventually break off. My suggestion, while assembling it, drill a few extra screws into the frame for extra support.
