The Power Wheels Toys are one of the most popular ride on toys for children (and parents) of all ages. These rides are battery powered and come in such a variety of styles that they are age appropriate for little ones aged 18 months all the way up to teens. Some of them even can handle the weight of an adult, so yes parents can even take some of them for a test drive!
Power Wheels Toys come in 3 different powers categories. The 6 volt models are perfect for toddlers and run at a very safe 2 – 2.5 mph. These rides are wonderful beginner vehicles and generally have an automatic brake feature.
The 12 volt models travel in two different speeds, normally 2.5 mph and 5 miles per hour. These rides are great for preschoolers and elementary aged children and have a high speed lockout so parents can determine the speed that the child travels.
The 24 volt models are powered by two 12 volt batteries and can travel at speeds of 7 mph up to 15 mph. These are perfect for pre-teens and teens.
While many people refer to every single battery powered ride on toy as a Power Wheels vehicle, there are actually two prominent manufacturers of these toys. Fisher-Price is one of the most well known and has been producing these battery rides under the Power Wheels label since 1971. All Power Wheels are kid tested in the Fisher-Price on site Play Lab and through an in-home test program.
Not only are these toys guaranteed to be age appropriate, durable, and easy to operate, but best of all they’re fun! All of the Fisher-Price Power Wheels come with a one year Bumper to Bumper limited warranty and there are more than 300 Authorized Service Centers throughout the United States. Fisher-Price is known for producing toys that characterize some of the most popular children’s figures and toys including Barbie, Dora, and Lightning McQueen.
Peg Perego is another well known and reputable manufacturer of the Power Wheels Toys. This family owned Italian born company branched out and began manufacturing pedal ride on toys in the 1960′s and not long after started putting out some very cool battery operated rides.
Peg Perego also upholds a very stringent testing program and offers a one year Bumper to Bumper limited warranty. Some of their more popular rides include the John Deere, Polaris, and Vespa brands. They pride themselves on producing ride on toys that are not only beautiful but are also durable, safe, and very functional.
As a parent you really can’t go wrong when you buy either a Fisher-Price or a Peg Perego product. You’ll be sure to get a quality ride, a guaranteed and warrantied product, and your kids will be sure to have fun. Power Wheels Toys are available in just about any size, color, or shape that you could ask for. Here’s a breakdown of some of the shopping categories that you may want to explore before making your buying decision:
