Have you been thinking that perhaps you should buy ride on toys for your baby? This is a great move to make because your infant is developing in leaps and bounds and a ride on toy will help to increase all of those developmental skills that are forming. At this age they are in the process of developing important muscles, motor skills, and expanding their senses. This is what makes ride on toys for babies so important.
This is a gallery of some of the best and most interactive ride on toys that are available for babies. Every child is different so take some time to browse so you can make the right choice for your child and your home. If you’re undecided between a couple of different models take some time to read the online customer reviews. Reading about someone else’s experience may help you make your decision.
The best feature of the Step Start Walk ‘n Ride is that it’s really 2 toys instead of 1. If you baby is just learning to stand and take their first steps then you can use the toy as a walker to help them gain strength and get more stable.
Once they’re more stable you can convert the walker right into their first ride on toy. This toy has several hands-on activities that will stimulate touch and sound sensations.
The Little Tikes My First Cozy Coupe Car also acts as both a walker and a ride on. Your baby will develop a sense of independence when they are able to start pushing this toy around the room by themselves.
It’s also very easy for them to sit on and before you know it they’ll be using it as a ride on toy. The spinning head light rattles and the doors open by the mouth.
The Hasbro Tonka Wheel Driver Scoot ‘n Scoop is a very interactive 3 in 1 toy. Although it’s marketed toward boys, you can be sure that the girls will love it just as much.
This is a great toy that will help your baby make the transition from crawling to walking to actually riding. You child will have fun scooping up blocks as they push or pull the truck around. The truck blinks, makes noises, and actually vibrates. You can easily convert it into a ride on toy when the time is right.
The Little Tikes Push & Ride Racer is a combination walker and ride on toy that has received the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award for being one of the best toys in its category. This great toy sits very low to the ground so you child can get on and off easier.
The rear spoiler is high enough that your baby can easily hold on to it from behind. It also provides great back support when they’re sitting on it. And they can even take their favorite teddy for a ride!
If you’ve got a little girl who wants to be a princess then the Disney Princess Ride-On Toy is just what you need to consider. This ride on is so interactive and fun for girls. The mirror lights up and the castle glows.
The princess figures pop-up and they even rotate to the music for hours of entertainment. Your daughter can either push or ride this fun toy. It also makes engine and horn noises that they can enjoy.
The Radio Flyer Retro Rocket is great for either pushing or riding. This adorable retro rocket has tons of interactive features for your baby. The “engine” vibrates to stimulate take-off, the nose cone makes clicking noises, and there are three interactive buttons that make astronaut and outer space sounds.
It’s really fun to watch some of the lights and sounds come on when the wheels are rolling. This is another great Radio Flyer toy that has some unique features that will stimulate and initiate your baby’s creativity.
The WonderWorld Rocking Cater is not so much your typical ride on toy as it is a rocker. You can use this Caterpillar as an introduction to the stimulation that comes from a ride on. The Cater is super soft and comfortable and has an interactive rattle in its nose. It’s low to the ground so it’s very safe.
Your baby can enjoy the stimulation that comes from rocking on it and then you can remove it from the base so your baby can enjoy it as a soft pillow or cushion. The Cater is the winner of the Good Toy Award and is made from environmentally friendly Rubberwood.
WonderWorld also makes the adorable WonderWorld Puffy Dragon Ride-On. The dragon has a wooden base will allow your baby to push themselves around. The wheels roll easily so they can move in any direction.
Like the Caterpillar, the Dragon is super soft and can be removed from the base and be used as a pillow or cushion. He has a beeper and crinkly ears (kids love these!). And he’s environmentally friendly too!
The Fisher Price Musical Roll-Along Pony is available in pink or yellow. It has a very comfortable and contoured seat and the handles are very easy to grip. The mane and tail are very soft to the touch and you’ll see that kids are very drawn to the sensation of touching them.
This ride on toy is best for babies who are able to walk and are relatively steady on their feet. It’s very interactive with 5 different songs and various sounds.
The Push Around Buggy is a great ride on toy to have when you’d like to cruise around the neighborhood with your baby. This is a much more fun and interactive way to stimulate than just a plain old stroller.
You actually have control of the toy from behind but your baby will think that they’re the ones driving. They can push the click-start ignition key and turn the wheel to navigate. If someone gets in the way they can just blow the horn. The seat belt provides safety and there’s convenient storage space under the hood.
And finally, the Go N Grow Lil’ Rollin’ Giraffe Ride On is just as friendly as can be. He’s got fun colors, the style is great, and he can be used inside or out. This ride on is somewhat unique because it has 3 wheels instead of 4.
The oversized rear wheel provides extra stability so your child won’t tip over easily. The seat is adjustable so it will grow with your child and there are wheel guards for safety. There aren’t any interactive sounds or lights but that’s ok because your child will be getting lots of motor skill development while they scoot around. I would recommend this for children who can walk because there’s no back guard.
P.S. Here’s a great review of the Disney Princess Ride-On Toy.
