Don't leave your youngest behind, let your toddlers have time on the road with one of many riding toys from Academy Sports + Outdoors designed for tiny tots. Smaller and slower in design, our riding toys for toddlers allow your littlest ones to drive along in vehicles featuring their favorite characters, such as Lightning McQueen from Cars, Anna and Elsa from Frozen and Disney Princesses. Made from durable plastic, our toddler ride-on toys can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use and are made to keep your mini roadster safe. With reliable wheels, these riding toys offer great traction on multiple surfaces, allowing them to drive through dirt, on pavement and even grass, providing a fun toy that can be used almost anywhere. Keep the outdoor fun going with bouncy trampolines or roll down the street with a pair of in-line skates and roller skates.
The car is cute and has fun music and we enjoyed the settings to make the car remote or manually controlled. Really had no problems until recently when our car just randomly stopped holding a charge and would no longer drive. It’s been less than a year with minimal use and always stored indoors. Tried contacting the selling for help troubleshooting or to get a replacement part and they said they don’t do either of those things and since it’s been over 60 days we are out of luck unless we want to buy a brand new car. Would have hoped they would try to be more help. Disappointing for a toy this expensive to work less than a year.
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.
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.
The unusually large wheels give optimum stability just like the real farm tractor. What you only need now is the correct farm clothing and your child may as well have the best imaginative play of his or her life. They can pretend to load farm produce and equipment on their tractor trailer and haul it to the market. Great for physical, social, and emotional development. Also ideal for the enhancement of children’s cognitive skills. A perfect example of a great toddler electric car.
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.
* ASSEMBLY ... You have to assemble *everything* - absolutely nothing comes pre-assembled. For example, see the rear roll-bar in the photo? That alone is 16 pieces to be screwed together, not including the decals. Allow 90 minutes, but my repair took another 90 minutes, making assembly time a little over 3 hours total for me (from box to complete unit).
