Top 6 Children's Ride On Toy Vehicles


Kids love ride-on toys! It is their first step towards independence. They love to imitate their older brothers or sisters who sail along comfortably on their bigger bikes. Selecting the right ride-on for your child can be a tough decision. Here are a few top kids' ride-on toys for children which they are sure to love!

1. Radio Flyer's Twist Trike

The Twist Trike from Radio Flyer is actually 2 vehicles in one! The innovative design allows it to be switched from a trike to a low riding chopper. Younger kids starting from the age of 2 can ride the trike, and as they grow older, the trike easily converts into a chopper. A great investment - your kids will be able to use the ride-on right upto the age of 7.

The Fisher Price Barbie Jeep is a battery operated ride-on which moves at a maximum speed of approximately 5 mph. The battery powered jeep can move forward as well as backward on road, grass or relatively easy to move on surfaces. This cool ride-on features a real working FM radio and a digital clock, making the youngsters feel even more like grown-ups! The only major issue I've come across with this ride-on is that the battery requires a substantial initial charging time of 18 hours. You have to keep the battery for charging it atleast overnight after use. I've also received a few reports of the battery needing replacement. Aside from the battery issue, this ride-on is one of the best battery operated ride-ons I've come across in a while.

Now you can zip, zap and zoom along in style! The Razor pro model scooter is lightweight, easy to ride and stylish too. I will definitely recommend spending the extra cash and picking up the Pro model over the other Razor scooter models because it's just so much better. You get lots of extra features like a rear fender brake, thicker reinforced wheels, thicker foam grips, lighter and more durable construction and much more. This all sums up to better performance that's pretty visible.
