What Toys Were Popular Back Then? The Coolest Children Plaything In 2007: Ride On Cars


Children always like to imitate adults. Whether it is a good habit or a bad habit, children will just follow the adult. In this way, when children see their parents driving, they too want to drive. With the production of ride-on cars, this fascination of the children became a reality. In the beginning, ride-on cars were high priced and some of the ride-on cars were as expensive as buying an actual motorcycle. Now, with the commercial production of ride-on cars by many toy companies, it had become affordable to most parents. A ride in the car is considered not an ordinary toy. In the opinion of most people, a ride-on car is an educational toy that teaches a child the basic points of controlling and maneuvering a car just as an adult would do.

Ride on cars comes in several forms. The earliest form of ride-on cars was manual peddling. The first production was a wooden ride-on car for children under five years of age. These wooden ride-on cars for children were heavy and bulky. This was followed by ride-on mini cars that were made out of metal. These ride-on mini cars made of metal were dangerous as the metal rusted and children got bruised by the sharper edges. Now, with the introduction of electric-powered rides on cars made out of fiber or plastic, it has given this toy a lot of sophistication. The electric-powered ride-on cars made by toy companies are replicas of big cars. They come with various controls that allow the child to learn to control the electric ride-on cars intelligently. Children also use it carefully so as not to knock them to damage the electric powered ride on cars. When kids ride on cars they observe carefully what the adult does so that he or she may be able to follow that in their own ride-on electric cars.

Some of the features of the electric-powered ride on cars include travels at speeds ranging from three to six kilometers per hour with a load capacity of up to forty kilograms. This means a child up to the age of twelve can use an electric ride on a car. The motor of an electric ride-on car is 18 Watts with a rechargeable battery of six volts. It weighs around twenty to twenty-five Kilograms.

The ride-on cars come with several names like Children’s ride-on cars that can carry children up to five years of age. There are electric ride-on cars named pussy cat cars that resemble the shape of a cat. There are also ride-on jeeps just like the bigger versions. These can accommodate two children each weighing twenty kilograms. There are also go-kart-like kids who ride on cars resembling the go-karts.

The most recent electric kids ride-on car introduced to the market is the 1:4 scale, Benz. It has forward, backward, right, and left turn functions. It has a twelve volts rechargeable battery and resembles the original Benz car in all details.
