Why are 12v ride on cars so popular?

Power – this may be obvious but if you have an older or heavier child the 6 volt cars just aren’t going to cut it. The last thing you want to be dealing with is a child that is frustrated because they can’t get the car to go up the incline of your driveway! This extra power will also help the ride on car to drive across slightly rougher terrain outdoors such as through thick grass or on loose gravel.

Size – Because 12v ride on cars are generally designed with older children in mind they tend to be larger, both in size and in seating area. This means that not only will your child be more comfortable in the seat, they will also get years of enjoyment from the toy rather than months. A lot of 12v ride on cars come with two seats as they have the power to pull two children. This means that your child will be able to enjoy speeding around with a friend riding shotgun!

Speed – 12 volt ride on cars can be speedier than you would expect. Many come with multiple speed settings and can often reach speeds above 5mph, (a brisk walking speed).
