Powered ride-on toys are fun for children of all ages

Little kids love to ride them because they can go anywhere an adult can go and explore a little bit more. Older kids like the controlled speed and ability to negotiate obstacles without having to rely on someone else – although a great way to introduce young children to the fun and excitement of riding an adult-sized bike or motorcycle. Also known as electric ride-on, these battery-powered toys are much safer than their gas-fueled counterparts and help teach children how to pedal, shift gears and even perform tricks such as two-wheel turns and figure 8s.

Here are a few types of powered ride-on toys.

1 . Electric Dirt Bikes

Electric dirt bikes are the most popular type of powered ride-on toys because they provide speed and off-road capability. With enough torque to climb any hill, kids can use these lightweight bikes to blaze trails through fields, dive into the thick brush or fly off jumps in a dirt bike park. You’ll find electric models designed specifically for kids, as well as larger bikes that can hold adults. Most run for about two hours on a single charge and re-charge in six to eight hours, although the speeds vary from model to model.

2 . Electric Mini Bikes

Electric mini bikes are a small version of dirt bikes designed specifically for children and youth under the age of 16. They’re not as powerful as the larger models, but they’re fast enough to keep young riders entertained and provide a safe alternative to gas-powered mini bikes. Like other electric ride-on, the speeds vary depending on the model, but most run for about 1 – 2 hours per charge.

3 . Electric Motorcycles

These bikes are the most similar to a real motorcycle or dirt bike. They have a seat and a pair of foot pedals so kids can learn how to properly ride a motorcycle – although they still require adult supervision just as with any battery-powered toy vehicle. Kids who have mastered these models will be able to tackle something more akin to an adult-sized bike or motorcycle with a little more practice. Some of these models require the rider to shift gears and provide speed up to 40 miles per hour on level ground, while others ramp it up to even faster speeds.

4 . Electric Mini Choppers

Electric mini choppers combine the fun of a dirt bike or motorcycle with the unique design of a chopper motorcycle – they look like a regular bike but with a longer, more stylized fork and high handlebars. Kids can use this electric ride-on to learn how to shift gears and steer a real motorcycle, although they don’t provide the speed of a dirt bike or true chopper.

5 . Electric Go-Karts

Electric go-karts are four-wheel vehicles with a low center of gravity to provide stability, unlike gas-powered models that tip easily. They’re fast enough for kids to have fun racing against each other, yet smooth enough to drive on grassy areas without leaving ruts or tracks. Many models can hold several passengers, allowing kids to ride along with their friends. Also known as mini 4-wheelers, these models can reach speeds up to 10 or 15 miles per hour depending on the model you buy.

The best thing about electric ride-one is that they’re quiet enough for kids to enjoy riding them around the neighborhood without bothering neighbors – but fast enough for them to have fun outdoors. With different models for different age groups, you can find an electric ride-on for kids of any age.
