The Batmobile went through a revamp. Holy Power Wheels, Batman! The Dune Racer is a spacious, open-topped ride-on with thick-tread wheels and a wing-tipped front in vibrant blue (with allover Batman decals, of course). Throw in all-terrain for perfect ridin’, whether on wet grass, asphalt, or rock-tastic surfaces. The car goes up to 5 miles an hour and even has a reserve function. Additional features include as sturdy seat and metal side bars.
If your kiddo is obsessed with the Caped Crusader, this is the perfect electric-control car for him or her! Think of it as a mini dune racer…it also does not take long to piece together.
Remember when everything was Frozen-themed? Well, it was a pretty-darn-awesome movie. Power Wheels picked up on how great Elsa and Anna were, creating this Jeep Wrangler in icy blue with purple accents and lots-a “cool” Frozen decals. It comes with real-life Jeep Wrangler features, a faux radio that plays tunes from the movie, and a spacious storage area in the back. The doors open and close like the real thang.
An ideal electric car for your little Frozen fans, this option is sure to delight…and last.
Another super-cool Batman car, this toddler-sized ATV, also dubbed a Lil Quad, is decaled with the Caped Crusader and features a bright blue and sleek black exterior. In true 4-wheeler fashion, this ride-on features thick-tread, all-terrain wheels, no-slip footrests, and a plastic storage rack on the back. It goes 2 miles per hour max and is easy to operate via push button.
A forwad-moving vehicle only, your youngling will only tire of this option when it is too darn small to use anymore!
Talk about rollin’ in style. This BMW convertible mimics the real car from the BMW series 4 collection. It moves in both forward and reverse with realistic pedals, and the seatbelt and dashboards are miniatures of the original. Runs on a single 9 to 10-hour charge for over an hour. It even features a realistic car horn!
You will love watching your little ‘un tool around in this oh-so-sweet ride almost as much as the kiddo will love “driving” it. The detailing is truly amazing–seriously, what’s not to love?
I am diggin’ what Power Wheels is throwing into the ring this year. This Jeep Wrangler is Hot Wheels themed with flame and signature decals on a shiny, kinda-cobalt blue (with chrome accents). It is spacious, comfortable, and safe, with a high-speed lock-out option for beginner drivers. Includes revvin’ sounds. The high-speed lock-out is ideal for “new drivers,” as it is controlled entirely by you.
Don’t be shocked if your kiddie cannot wait to get on this lil Jeep Wrangler every day! It promises tons and tons (and tons) of fun.
How adorable is this, mom? Such a cute idea. The Lil Kawasaki is a much safer alternative to the original, of course. It is pint-sized for little riders, and the push-button makes it “go” on a max of 2 miles-per-hour from a slower start. Great for concrete and firm ground. It is designed for the “littlest riders” and offers a safe, comfortable experience. The mini ATV goes forward only.
Parents love it, grandparents love it, and kids love it. It’s a great investment!
This Quad is a go-to for adventurous little guys. There are two speeds, but the max is 5 miles-per-hour in drive. In reverse, the max speed is 2.5 miles-per-hour. This ATV resembles an authentic Raptor Quad, but much safer and more comfortable to accommodate your toddler. Additional features include Raptor sound controls.
Woohoo for 20-minute assemblies! You will not spend hours putting this mini ATV together, but your youngling will definitely spend hours on it! A quality piece for sure.
One from Peg Perego also holds a place among the favorite 2017 electric cars for kids with the Polaris RZR 900.
The RZR 900 is a sleek ride-on (available in various colors), with comfortable, spacious seats, an open storage compartment, and a realistic acceleration pedal, but automatic brakes. There are two speeds, but the max is 5 miles-per-hour with 2.5 miles-per-hour reverse. The adjustable buckle seats accommodate your growin’ kiddos.
Truly another winner, this might be the best gift you ever buy your kids!
From the creative minds and brilliant thinkers at Razor, the Dune Buggy is a go-to for adventurers and little adrenaline junkies. This ride-on is powerful, reaching 10 miles-per-hour on thick-tread, pneumatic wheels. The steel frame, low-ride bucket seat, and seatbelt offer great safety. But a helmet is totally suggested too, cuz yeah. It does go up to 10 miles an hour, after all!
This buggy might just get your kid hooked on racing. It is fast, fun, well-made, and features plenty of protective padding and other special features. A definite winner!
Last one from Power Wheels. The Jammin’ Jeep is decked out in pretty pink with Barbie decals on the hood and doors. There is room enough for a little driver and passenger, jamming out to six pre-loaded tunes on the dashboard radio. The max speed is 5 miles-per-hour in drive. 2.5 in reverse. The doors open and close for easy climbing in and out.
Fairly easy to assemble, this jeep is perfect if you have one or more Barbie nuts in your household.
