From an early age your child will have the urge to get up on a set of wheels and ride.  Riding kids toys vary depending on the age group of your child. The manufacturers designate certain riding kids toys to certain age groups for a reason. Buying a riding toy that is out of your child’s age group is a potentially dangerous thing to do. Always check the packaging to make sure that the toy is age appropriate. If you are unsure, ask the retailer, they will be happy to tell you more information about what toy is best suited for your child.

For younger children up to 4 years, riding kids toys are mainly designed without pedals. Popular models include fire trucks, pickup trucks and tractors. These cute riding kids toys have a plastic roof that offers protection for the child should they roll over or if something should fall from above.

When you child gets older they may want to get more adventurous. Riding kids toys for older children include skateboards, scooters, electric cars, go-karts and the classic bicycle. When you child takes up an interest in these faster toys, make sure they have the appropriate safety gear. Wearing a crash helmet is becoming standard for cyclists and should be worn when your child is on these more dangerous toys. There is a wide range of safety gear available in fun colors and with prints of popular movie and cartoon characters that make it more fun for your child to wear. They will be far more inclined to remember to wear the helmet of their favorite cartoon character than a plain helmet.

Encourage your child to play with riding kids toys. They are great exercise for all ages. Riding toys will help develop motor skills, coordination and teach your child responsibility and encourage their sense of adventure.
