Ride On Toys Buying Guide

Choosing the perfect toy for your child requires careful consideration of their interests, mobility, and age range. In this comprehensive guide, we will provide you with all the necessary information to make the best choice for the special kids in your life.

When deciding on a great ride on toy for your child you have an array of options! We take you through your options to find the best option for your child.

Age and Skill of the Child

When selecting a child’s first ride-on toy, it’s essential to take into account their age and skill level. For younger children (ages 3 and up), pedal go-karts are an excellent choice. Many models can be adjusted as your child grows, ensuring a perfect fit. As your little one gains confidence, consider introducing them to an electric balance bike. Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, these bikes help build their confidence without the need for power. Suitable for ages 3 and up, balance bikes can be enjoyed for years as your child continues to develop their skills.

For older children seeking a seated ride-on toy with more speed options, a hybrid model with both pedals and a 24v battery is an ideal choice. These versatile toys offer at least 2 hours of carefree driving, providing endless fun. Additionally, electric scooters are a fantastic option for older children, providing hours of enjoyment in both home and garden settings. Shop electric scooters HERE.

Set Your Budget

Before embarking on your ride-on toy journey, it’s important to establish your budget. Prices can vary significantly, with good quality pedal go-karts ranging from £300-£1000 or more. If you have younger children starting their ride-on toy adventures, pedal go-karts at the lower end of the price range are an excellent option. However, as your child grows and gains more mobility and confidence, it’s worth considering a higher-priced model that will grow with them.

Assembly and Storage  It is important to note that some products may require assembly upon delivery. Please refer to the individual product pages for specific assembly instructions. Always closely follow the provided instructions for any necessary ride-on assembly, and ensure that you have the necessary tools readily available.

 Consider the storage requirements of your chosen ride-on. If you opt for an electric balance bike or electric scooter, make sure you have a suitable location for storage when it is not in use.

Spares and Accessories

We strongly recommend purchasing safety equipment for all ride-ons. Helmets and spare batteries can be found on our website, along with additional accessories and safety gear tailored to various ride-on toys.
