* SPEED / GEARS ... There are actually 4 gears, controlled by a shifter in the middle: Low (2.5 mph), High (5 mph), Reverse and allegedly there's a Park (which i can't find, no matter how much I fiddle with the gear shifter). So realistically there's only 3 gears, though it ~really~ needs a brake or a park (while kids are loading/unloading, etc). It comes with a screw in the shifter to lock out high gear - remove the screw when your kids are ready for more speed.
This looks just like the real thing, only in a smaller model. Children can pretend to be law enforcers providing justice throughout the neighborhood on their own little motorcycle. Kids must balance themselves on this little motorcycle well to ride it, especially at the maximum speeds it is capable of going. Forwards, it can move at two speeds of 2.5 miles per hour or 5.0 miles per hour. That is pretty fast for a toddler’s ride. It can also go in reverse up to 2.5 miles per hour. More practice will be needed for this type of vehicle than the others we feature on this page because it does not have four wheels to support the child. It has just three wheels making it more prone to tipping over possibly. The hazard and signal lights make this so cute, plus the siren sounds ad headlights are neat too. It also has side view mirrors, back storage in the seat compartment, hand accelerator, and authentic-looking chrome detail. If your child loves pretending to be a policeman or policewoman, then this is just the perfect gift for them.
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!
Oh so pink and pretty is this little roadster perfect for that special little girl in your family! Able to move at two speeds of low and high, the car can go up to two miles an hour. It can be driven on almost any surface area indoors or outdoors and is ASTM certified. This beauty comes with a 12 volt battery that is of course rechargeable for a long life, remote control, auxiliary cord, LED lights gear switch, and easy to follow instructions for usage and assembly. The great thing about this car is that even if your child is not yet ready to handle a car on his or her own, it can be maneuvered by an adult via remote control until they are ready to take control in the driving seat themselves. Therefore, your child will be able to grow into the driving skills needed to operate a battery-powered vehicle. It makes the perfect gift or present for the little driving enthusiast.
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.
Battery lasts at least 4 hours (when new). The battery life will shorten over time, best case scenario it will last you a couple years. The instructions say it takes 18 hours to charge, but there is no light indicator, so the only way to know if's full is to check with a battery tester or multimeter. Do not overcharge the battery (i.e., don't leave it plugged in for days at a time) - this AC adapter/charger is not a trickle charger and could fry your battery to overcharge.
I wish I had one when I was a kid! So far, the battery usually lasts at least a 1/2 hour or about two miles. There's two speeds for forward and one for reverse. The slow speed goes a little slower than normal walking speed and the fast speed goes about as fast as a slow jogging speed. I like that there's a screw to lock out the faster speed for younger kids (late 2 early 3?). I think this Jeep is good for kids between late 2 - 5 our 6ish? My son just turned 4 and I think he's perfect size for it (of course I do). See the attached video. We've already been riding it for about a half hour at that point. It was on the fast speed and going about normal walking speed. The battery does slowly drain so it does give you a heads-up that its starting to run low on battery. I don't know exactly how long it takes to fully charge it but it's at least a few hours. You do need to assemble the Jeep but if you're good with directions, it's pretty straight forward. It took at least an hour to set up.
This one from Razor features an incredible 350-watt electric power to give your kid’s vehicle enough juice to slice through the harshest terrain and reach a commendable speed of 9 miles per hour. It takes several hours to charge its two 12-volt rechargeable battery of sealed lead acid which should give your kid sufficient continuous playtime of about 40 minutes. Its high torque, variable speed, chain-driven motor gives your child a feel of what’s it like to drive one of these iconic mobiles. Perhaps for Dad, it will bring back the memories of the great ‘70s when the dune buggy first roared into life.
What kid would not want a Dodge Viper SRT to drive up and down the driveway showing off their cool wheels? It simulates the Dodge V10 engine sound and also has horn sounds to alert everybody to your presence. Deep bucket seats and a roll bar make it cool to sit in and it is roomy enough to accommodate not only your child but a friend or sibling as well.
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.
Kawasaki is a well-known brand when it comes to motorcycles. In fact, it is one of the preferred brands for motocrossers and daredevils. Of course, this is not the only reason why you should consider giving your child the Kawasaki KFX from the Power Wheels toy division of Fisher-Price. With a very rugged all-terrain vehicle look, this is one of the best kids electric cars you can ever give as a gift.

One of the most expensive, albeit very interesting, gifts you can ever give to a child during his or her birthday or even on special occasions like Christmas is an electric car for kids to drive. Electric ride-ons are marvels of kiddie engineering as they not only resemble real-life vehicles; they also play a very important role in the optimum development of a child’s psychomotor and cognitive skills while also enhancing their self-esteem paving the way for greater emotional stability.

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.
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.
