Top 10 Ride-On Toys for Toddlers:
A fun first pick among the top 10 ride-on toys for toddlers for 2017 and into 2017 — Power Wheels Batman Lil’ Quad.
Decked out in vivid blue with black accents, the Lil Quad is Batman-inspired with Batman cartoon decals galore. The wheels have thick and slick treads, but they roll best on hard surfaces, such as pavement and concrete, and dry grass. It is designed in the ATV style and features easy push-button operation. Don’t worry, your kid will not be going over two miles an hour on this toy!
You will pat yourself on the back every day if you give this fantastic ride-on toy to your little ‘un. Whether as a birthday or holiday gift, it offers hours of imaginative fun. It only goes forward, so you do not have to worry about your child backing up into who-knows-what. Enjoy!
Ages: 1 1/2 to 5
A returning favorite among this year’s best toddler ride-on toys – Little Tikes Cozy Truck.
Durable, reliable, cool, and comfortable. The Cozy Truck is a ride-on must-have that I suspect every youngster would go gaga over. There are two friendly-expression designs, presumably one for boys and one for girls, in cobalt blue and rosy pink, respectively. It even features rugged “off-road” wheels, a gas cap, steering wheel with a working horn, realistic-looking front grill, and a driver’s door that opens and closes.
While this toy may present a few challenges when putting it together, it is super-cute and something your child will likely adore. The roof makes it feel like a real car!
Making it to the 3rd spot on the list – Fisher-Price Little People Music Parade Ride-On.
How adorable is this ride-on? So, so cute. Dubbed the Music Parade, this Fisher-Price favorite is a one-man band that includes a handlebar trumpet, miniature drums, tuba, saxophone, and a colorful, old-school keyboard. It plays five different marching tunes, while the keyboard makes whatever music your child wants.
Usable indoors, this toy will not scratch hardwood floors. If your child has demonstrated musical ability or you want to encourage musicality in your family, this toy is ideal. You won’t have to worry about the parade passing by with this ride-on option!
A true favorite among battery-powered toddler ride-on toys this year – Power Wheels Kawasaki Lil’ Quad.
The Lil Kawasaki is a cute ATV-styled ride-on that resembles a real quad from the Kawasaki collection. Decked out in red, black, and silver, this little rider comes with footrests, a comfortable, padded seat, and easy-grip handlebars for smooth ridin’. It is safe , works well on grass and hard surfaces, and comes with a six-volt battery and charger.
Easy to put together, the battery lasts several hours. Enjoy watching your youngling ride around with the biggest grin on his/her face if you purchase this wonderful toy.
The Little Tikes Deluxe 2-in-1 Cozy Roadster also holds a strong place among the 2017 10 best toddler ride-ons.
I cannot get over how adorable some of these ride-ons are. This one, for instance, is the Cozy Roadster—a pint-sized, comfy racer with a removable canopy and removable pull-around handle. The wheels are super-slick for extra-quiet rides, even indoors. Additional excellent features include a seat belt, cup holder, and a working horn.
One of the smaller ride-on toys on this list, it is nevertheless made from durable plastic and should suit your little ‘un just fine. The canopy is great for hot days when you don’t want your kiddo to get blasted by the sun all day.
Ages: 1 to 3
The Mercedes Benz Push Car is another gem that does not require battery power to function. It features a steering wheel that plays music and makes horn sounds.
The ride-on also comes in a variety of colors, including fire engine red.
A perfect way for your kiddo to get more exercise, this ride-on makes a great gift and will provide hours of fun. If you have a Mercedes Benz, it makes a wonderful “mini me” toy!
I love the new look of this top ride-on for toddlers! For the holidays of 2017 and into 2018, here is the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Ford Lil’ F150.
Designed to be a miniature replica of the original F150-6V, this toddler-friendly ride-on boasts realistic pedals, extra-wide better-grip tired, and max speeds of 3.5 miles-per-hour in forward and reverse. I am diggin’ the yellow, but it comes in silver too. Additional fun features include a foot pedal that drives like the real thang. It may be a lil confusing to put together, but the result is absolutely worth the effort.
Ages: 1 1/2 to 5
Another from this lineup from Little Tikes – one more returning favorite among the top ride-on toys for toddlers is the Little Tikes Princess Cozy Coupe.
This ride-on is specifically for the girlie-girls in your life. The little princesses who would love climbing into a luxurious, foot-powered automobile, complete with a spacious interior, high-back seat, rear storage compartment, and bounce-back wheels.
There’s even a handle on the back for outstanding push control (by you) and a moving, clicking ignition switch!
Your child will love it…and so will you! Push it around your yard, the neighborhood, the local park, or anywhere else you please.
The Little Tikes Go and Grow Lil’ Rollin’ Giraffe marks a spot at #9 on the list.
Another whoa-so-cute ride-on you and your kiddo will love, this one is shaped like a giraffe with the ears as handlebars and customizable stick-on giraffe patterns.
There are three wheels—two in the front for stability and an oversized wheel in the back for better balance. Use it indoors or outdoors to promote motor skills and coordination. The seat is also adjustable for your convenience.
Seriously, what’s not to love?
Ages: 1 1/2 to 4
And – the final item on the 2017 top ten list of ride-on toys for toddlers – Step2 Whisper Ride II.
The second edition Whisper is a-coming in 2017. The first Whisper was a top-seller with parents last year, but this revamped version is quieter than ever.
With smooth-rollin’ wheels and all foot-powered “go,” this ride-on is a favorite among parents.
There’s a cup holder for your child and one for you so you stay hydrated as you push your little ‘un around the neighborhood.
