The bikes deliver maximum power transfer thanks to their pneumatic knobby tires along with the quiet and variable speeds.The front wheels are 16 while the rear wheels are 14. This motor cross bike is also fairly easy to assemble and comes with the tools included. With a single charge, riders will be able to cruise at speeds of up 10 miles. This is the perfect bike for your teenager. Alternatively, if they are looking for something a bit more advanced, take a look at our latest reviews of the top self balancing hoverboards here.
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!
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.
We used a "cover story" to explain the unusual appearance of the wheels, which appeared not to have spokes at all. We concocted a fiction about "disc" wheels and some imaginary advantage in reduction of wind resistance. Everybody fell for it! Actually, the covers degraded performance, particularly in cross winds, but they were necessary for security reasons at the time.
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.
Ride on cars are a great way to hone fine and motor skill development. Getting in and out of the car requires a skill set from the gross motor department while driving and using the controls is a great way to practice those fine motor skills. Together the movements of getting in and operating this ride on car are great practice for many developmental skills.
* 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.
