And the chequered flag goes down as the cars stream across the finish line, amid the cheers and screams of delight of the crowd. But this is not Formula 1 or stock car racing. No, this is something much more special. This is your child and his friends having fun on their new toys. Pedal cars for kids are back, and they are back to stay.
Once a big thing, pedal cars for kids went out of fashion and disappeared from sight. Now though, they are the toy of choice for both parents and kids alike. Built to last, they are robust and strong. Built of heavy gauge steel and with high traction tires, your child will be safe to play for hours.
Pedal cars for kids are a fantastic gift idea. Not only do they allow your child hours of fun, they also promote a healthy lifestyle by giving your child much needed exercise. Instead of being stuck in front of the television or a computer game all day, they can be outside in the fresh air, releasing energy and staying healthy.
Pedal cars for kids come in many different designs and styles. Let you child be a fireman, a policeman, a farmer or even a pilot for a while. All children like to mimic others and this is a great way to let them do that in complete safety.
Pedal cars for kids are also a great way to help your child to develop essential motor skills and to teach them about safety. They are also good at teaching your child to pedal and steer before they get their first push bike.
Allowing your child the freedom to play in safety whilst keeping fit is also good for your peace of mind. You know that your child is enjoying himself and you also know that he is getting essential development and exercise.
Pedal cars for kids are suitable for children from 1 to 5 yeas of age. This is the time when they learn a lot of their skills in movement and dexterity and when their imaginations are expanding. This is also the time when they want to learn a little independence and to be “grown up”. Pedal cars are an excellent way of allowing this to happen. Your child can mimic you by having his own car; he can learn a little competition by playing in his car with his friends and their cars.
Pedal cars for kids also give you, as parents the chance to maybe relive a little of your own childhood. They are a great investment as they can be passed down through your family. They can also be restored when there are no more children to play with them.
These are not an expensive toy. A good solid built pedal car will start from around $220, depending on the size and style you want. They are guaranteed to last for years and will provide hours of fun and enjoyment for everyone, whether it is the kid who is riding around in it or the parent who is watching.
