When it comes to buying a kids electric car sometime the sheer amount of choice can become overwhelming. With so many different shapes, styles , models of kids electric car, how do you know which one is the best choice for you? Never fear, I am here to help you make your choice.

Where to start?

Firstly you need to look at your childs interests. Are they interested in a certain profession? For example the police or fire brigade? Or are they more interested in copying what a parent or family member do? Like farming or truck driving. Maybe they really love sports cars and that’s their thing? Whatever their interest is, that is a great place to start when looking for a kids electric car. I’m going to help you out by telling you the most suitable kids electric car to your childs age.

0-2 years

Before the age of 2 children are still very much still learning about the world and developing their skills. They can be very wobbly and still figuring out things. Their fine motor skills are developing meaning safety isn’t always and instinct. If you’re a parent you will have probably dealt with a bumped head or two!

Many if not all kids electric cars aimed at under 2 year old have a range of features that you wouldn’t find on a ride on toy for an older child. Such as special supported seats and a very low motor to ensure they don’t go too fast. Most kids electric cars that are made for children under 2 are designed for indoor use. This is to help prevent injuries should there be a tumble. However always check the specifications of the kids electric car that you purchase. Easy pedal systems are in place for your child to be able to operate it themselves.

How to choose the right kids electric car 1

3-5 years

Once your child reaches the age of 3, they have usually mastered some of their motor skills meaning they have the ability to use and control a more powerful kids electric car. This is reflected in the type of kids electric car that is available for that age range. These cars tend to be able to reach upto 6MPH. Around this age is where the cars start to look more realistic and have more features.

By the ages of 3-5 years your child is usually interested in something in particular. So maybe they are a fan of a certain type of car or maybe they have a big interest in fire engines. Whatever the interest you can usually find an electric kids car to suit. These cars also tend to come with a range of features such as lights, sounds and some even have space for a passenger.

For this age the power of car recommended really depends on the child themselves. The less confident child would be more suited to a lower battery such as 6/12v. Where as some children are more confident and have more advanced co-ordination making a 12/24v more suitable

5-8 years

From the age of 5 most children are able to cope with a more advanced kind of electric kids car. The electric cars for 5 year plus are generally even more life like. The licensed vehicles are especially good for this age range as they tend to be almost exact replicas of the grown up versions. A range of features means that they simulate the adult version quite scarily accurately.

Car aimed at the age range tend to be suitable for use on an array of different surfaces rather than just in the house or garden like the smaller cars. They also tend to have features such as double motor systems and multiple gears including reverse. Advanced reflexes and co-ordination means that children within this age range are usually more suited to a 24v car. Although those less confident may feel more secure on a 12v.
