Safety –the tires on these kids ride-on toys might not be pumped up to 2 bars with air, but you can teach your tot how to feel the tires for hardness (acting this out is a great start for later life skills), check the headlights and tail lights to see that they aren’t broken, and things like this. If the car has space for two you can also teach them that driving more carefully when you have a passenger is a good idea, and encourage your kids to pay more attention to how their passenger is reacting to their driving.
Start your kid's driving lessons early with his or her very own ride-on toys from Academy Sports + Outdoors. Let your child speed around in a variety of riding toys, like mini Jeeps, dirt bikes, ATVs, police cars and other vehicles made to resemble the real deal. Each kids' vehicle is powered by a rechargeable battery that allows your children to reach speeds of 10 mph or greater for high-octane fun. Pogo sticks, an outdoor classic, are also available, letting your kids bounce high in the air.
Don’t think that kids electric cars are only for boys; girls too, can have their very own wheels to drive. The Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler is the girls’ version of Power Wheels’ Tough Talking Jeep Wrangler, except that it does not include the make believe radio communications and FM radio device. It is, nevertheless, one amazing piece of kiddie vehicle designed specifically for young princesses.

Children are excited when they see the ATV in real because they are so fun, however, they are also quite dangerous for kids this young even as passengers. No need to worry because this little vehicle gives them all the fun of a motorized car without the harm. The Li’l Quad is perfectly safe for toddlers because it is made especially for them from the slow speed to the low frame of the vehicle. Kids can get on and off very easily with the help of the comfortable foot rests on both sides. This vehicle only goes forward to increase the safety for the wee ones. It has easy access to the push button to make it go because that is operated right from the handlebars. The construction is extremely sturdy and the camo graphics and design make it seem even more rugged for the rough-and-tumble types. Operation is by a six volt battery that is included. This Power Wheels vehicle is fabulous for boys or girls who love adventure.
The John Deere has maximum speed of 4.5 miles per hour and is a firm favorite in our list. For younger farmers-to be, this electric car can be set to a maximum speed of 2.25 MPH so you don’t have to worry about your younger children getting themselves into trouble. It also features an FM radio to make farming more pleasant and enjoyable. The seat is fully adjustable while the armrests can be easily flipped up for easy access. You can look at the John Deere Ground Force Tractor as the farm equipment equivalent of a 4WD off-roader. The steering wheel is designed to mimic the real thing.
Toddlers that seem to take an interest in riding toys, especially trains, will be thrilled with this wonderfully cute Thomas Train Set that can be used on or off the included track. The track is 18 feet long that runs in a continuous circle for endless hours of riding fun. It is easy to put together and take apart for moving and storing. The train can go up to one mile per hour on the track and up to two miles per hour off of the track. Once toddlers learn the skills of steering their train, then they can ride off of the track and go almost anywhere they want. Kids as young as one year old can learn how to ride Thomas safely as they build their motor skills and balance talents on the track. The ride uses a six volt battery that is included, but for the sounds a AA battery is needed. Sounds and verbal phrases come from the little yellow whistle when it is pressed. Operation of the vehicle is by a push button which kids learn how to use quickly. They can stop and go easily by manipulating this device. For hours of indoor driving play, Thomas the Train will entertain your toddler happily.
Can you imagine having LED wheels that light up as you drive? You might even be a bit envious of your kid, because this feature stands out to us as the pinnacle of cool. It’s also extremely fast because it has two motors, so older children will be able to satisfy their inner speed demon. It does have parental remote control too, so that speed will never put your child at too much risk.
This is another excellent set of power wheels from Fisher-Price. Working doors, spacious storage in the rear, 2 speeds – topping out at 5 mph, 12-volt battery life, and the option of restricting the speed to 2.5 mph, all advance for a really cool jeep. And if the shrieks of joy are not loud enough to hear, there is also a microphone, and it also plays a range of tunes over its radio, perfect for a youngster who loves to sing.
Electric cars are great examples of ride-on toys that are otherwise similar with pedal-powered vehicles, except for the fact that these run on battery power. Nevertheless, these playthings are excellent for helping kids develop their psychomotor skills particularly in terms of their visual motor coordination, balance, and proprioception. Flicking on switches also help enhance dexterity and master their control of fine motor movements.

We definitely love the cute styling of the Disney Frozen Wrangler Jeep; just right for little princesses. It’s great for encouraging independence in driving to build their self-confidence while at the same time enhancing their social and emotional development. It’s also great for psychomotor development particularly spatial intelligence and visual motor coordination.


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!
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.

The unrivalled cool factor to this Fisher Price buggy will be the deciding one when your toddler shows it off to their friends. It has a darker, striking look that has a bad boy feel to it, but it still has all of the great functions that other models come with. There is a speed lock for high-speed use (so that your child can’t travel faster than your preferred speed) that will keep them safe if they are beginners.
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.

More importantly, however, is these playthings’ ability to encourage role-playing and pretend play among children. This can have a significant impact in their cognitive development especially in terms of problem solving, spatial reasoning, and understanding of cause and effect relationships. These can lay the foundation for more complex thinking and reasoning skills such as critical thinking, creative thinking, counterfactual reasoning, and divergent thinking. For example, when given a particular terrain to navigate through, their brains are processing a lot of information to help them decide which path to take or whether to run over the obstacle or not. They are also processing the possible consequences of every action that they decide to take. Thus, these kids ride-on cars help children develop their ability to predict based on their understanding of cause and effect relationships.

So there are the roll bars, that distinctive Jeep grille, a roomier rear storage space and roll bars.The doors are real and fully functional ;they open and close with relative ease. The rear storage area of the Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep is roomier and can accommodate a good amount of the kids play items.The miniature Jeep Wrangler is available in two speeds- 2.5 mph and 5 mph. Whilst not difficult, it is a bit tricky to assemble, and thats before you (or the baby) tackle the job of placing the stickers.
It is also important to look at factors such as the design of these miniature vehicles. As you will notice, many electric cars for kids replicate the designs of the grown-up vehicles currently the market which your kids will love. The only thing missing are the nice logos of Audi, VW, BMW, Toyota, Jeep, Chevrolet or Buick. Look at the vehicle and determine if it has been made to excellent craftsmanship. Don’t leave anything to chance. Everything from the chassis to the body styling and the decals will tell you whether the vehicle has been manufactured to top quality standards for kids.

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.

Roomy enough to accommodate their side kick this is the ultimate ride-on for your little one.
Driving Skills – After the excitement of driving anywhere and everywhere has worn off a bit, you can change the play time up a bit and teach the kids some real driving skills. If you take them to a big parking lot, you can set up a course of cones for them to roll along, and teach your kids how to check their toy for damage, when to stop the toy at a stop-sign, how to park the toy, how to go around a circle, and more. This will introduce the more difficult parts of driving that they will have to deal with later on for their real-life driving test one day. They might protest at first, but if you treat it as a challenge with a reward at the end like an ice-cream or a packet of chips you can be sure they’ll be into it almost at once.

With a 12 volt battery and a charger to keep it primed, this super sports car is one fantastic vehicle for toddlers. It is made of durable plastic materials that can take the rough treatment from kids and keep on going. The operating features of the car are a horn, headlights, a seat belt, MP3 connection, FM radio, and steering controls. Kids can go forward or reverse, unlike some of the other models of cars that only move forwards for safety reasons. A wonderful safety mechanism that it does have besides the seat belt is that if kids are too young to handle the driving themselves, adults can control the car by remote. This way the child can still enjoy the ride, but without the worry of them getting hurt or destroying property. The vehicle travels up to two miles per hour so kids can enjoy some speed, but not get into any trouble or spills. This is one great race car for boys or girls that are ready to ride!


An electric bike such as this one has more speed power than some of the battery-powered vehicles that are more appropriate for toddlers. Young kids a bit older can ride this bike with confidence once skills are honed to ride safely. It can reach a speed of up to fifteen miles per hour. The large tires ensure the driver a smooth ride, plus easy handling with the hand rear-braking feature and twist-grip throttle. Two 12 volt batteries combine to give the bike it power and it can run up to 45 minutes at a time without charging. The charger comes with the item as do tools and a pit stand to hold the vehicle up when not in use. Kids 6 years old and older are the best ages to enjoy this bike as beginners on a two-wheel vehicle.
* TURNING RADIUS ... isn't great, probably 6-8 feet. You really need a lot of flat space to use this. And this is heavy & bulky to take to the park or something like that. You could throw it in a pickup truck fairly easily, but it's too bulky to transport easily in a minivan, crossover, or sedan. If you don't have a big flat yard, or a school/park right next door, think twice.
