Terrible twos, trying threes, fiendish fours? The names might be less than flattering, but the developmental stages are real. As parents, it’s up to us to make sure our little ones get the mental and physical stimulation they need to grow and advance to the next stage.

Not surprisingly, hours spent in front of a television set do little to improve your child’s skills, but you can foster development with carefully selected activities. Childrens ride on toys fit the bill perfectly. They’re not only great fun, they’re also a wonderful way to help your child flourish.

  • Toddlers are making huge intellectual strides, and keeping their minds busy will not only help them advance, but it will help prevent mom from losing her hair. One way to manage those terrible twos is by providing your little one with a ride on toy that encourages role playing and independent play, or that helps your child explore her surroundings. Challenge your little angel with some interactive play, and the terrible twos will be a thing of the past.
  • Preschoolers are learning balance and coordination. They’re learning to ride tricycles and to play nicely with other children. Childrens ride on toys like trikes and Big Wheels give developing muscles just enough room to learn while still providing the safety of three wheels. Riding a bike like a “big boy” will help your little man build the confidence he needs to tackle tougher tasks later in life.
  • Kids of all ages and with all styles of ride on toys enjoy the benefit of honing their fine motor skills and hand to eye coordination. Learning how far you have to turn the steering wheel to make the corner at the end of the block, or just how much pressure you have to apply to the breaks to do that cool skidding half-turn are important lessons to growing muscles. Imagining you’re chasing the bad guy while doing it is great for building up those creative brain cells, too.

We’re living in a sedentary world where we spend hours in front of the television or computer screen. By encouraging active, imaginative play that sparks your child’s creativity and engages their imagination and cognitive thinking skills, you’re helping your little one meet those important developmental milestones that just aren’t being met by passive entertainment. Ride on toys engage the entire child, from their head to their toes. Best of all, they won’t even know it’s good for them.

If you’d like to take learning about childrens ride on toys (or any type of toys) a little bit further then I recommend this book by Marianne Szymanski.  It’s easy to read, it’s very straightforward, and it discusses a wide variety of toys for kids of all ages.  It has lots of practical tips and even has mini worksheets to help you narrow down your toy purchases.

About Tina
I'm a country girl who loves the outdoors and loves the fun that comes with ride on toys. It's very important for parents to provide toys for their little ones that are fun (of course) but also beneficial in some way, shape, or form. That's where ride on toys fit in so be sure to watch for all the great deals I can find for you.

    You are so right! Kids need to be active to develop properly. I find it often difficult with my 3 year old daughter who is a real thunderstorm, barely sitting still and always up to some messy stuff. But at the end of the day, this is their way of learning. And they won’t learn things if they don’t do them. I think ride on toys are great because you can do many things with them. You can use them inside, outside, do races, obstacle courses, competitions, and almost any imaginatory game. And, as you said, they teach a lot of skills without the kids noticing it. That’s the kind of toys that really is best for our kids.
