1. Where to start

It's important to ensure that the size and power of the car is suitable for your child, if your child is 2-3 years old, then a 6 volt single motor trike or four wheeler is best, if your child is a little older, then a 6volt/12volt car with dual motors would be more suitable, enough power to get them moving, but still provide stability, if they are a little older 5-8 years old, then we recommend quad or jeeps, something with 12 volts, dual motors, and enough power to get them moving outside on uneven surfaces.

2. Features

Once you pick the best type of car for your child, you then need to ensure it has the right add-ons.

Kidz Auto has ensured every feature and attributes imaginable is included in our range of cars to give your child the very best first ride-on car experience. When comparing prices, it's important to compare like for like, to ensure you are not only getting the best value for money, but that all the important add-on's that will make your child's time more enjoyable are included. Let's go through each of the features in detail;
 • Larger battery, 6v to 12v has the opportunity to give your child more play time between charges, all our cars (excluding our smaller bikes) have 12v batteries installed.
• Dual motors, instead of having just one motor driving one back wheel we've installed two motors so that each wheel is being driven, giving your child more power and speed, all our cars (excl smaller bikes) have dual motors installed.
• Dual speed, allows the choice between a slower 3kph speed or a faster speed 5kph.
• Remote control, which is great for smaller children, there is a switch in the car that disables the peddle and allows the car to be driven by the remote control.
• MP3 connector, an audio plug that allows you to plug your smart phone or MP3 player in and run the music through the car speakers.
• Leather seats and a rubber steering wheel, a cushioned seat gives the ride-on more comfort when driving around.
• Sounds, lights, music, no ride-on car would be complete without all the flashing lights possible, along with a heap of different music, and horn noises. Our cars also have a volume dial which after little a while might make house life a little bit quieter.

We understand that purchasing a ride-on car isn't a cheap exercise, which means it's important pick the best value for money and safest option the first time. If after reading this blog you have any questions on picking the best ride-on car for your child, grandchild, or step child, just send us a quick message and we will be more than happy to assist.
