Ride-on toys are becoming a great addition to a child’s toy collection. Available in a range of styles and options to purchase electric and non-electric ride-on toys, they’re fast becoming a top pick for birthday and Christmas gifts. Ride-toys come with a range of benefits which include:
Your child uses their arms and legs to push, pull, pedal and kick. Just like riding a kids bike, they learn how to control his/her body movements. They also learn to steer, grasp and grip. They’re able to improve on their gross motor skill whilst enjoying their ride-on toy.
By giving your child a ride-on car or ride-on toy you encourage them to bring the fun outside. There’s only so much space in your house before your little one begs to go outside. Having your kids play outdoors allows them to absorb a healthy amount of Vitamin D. Always remember to slip, slop, slap some sunscreen.
To you, the ride-on car can just be seen as another ride-on toy, but to your child, it could be something more! A spaceship, firetruck or even the batmobile. They’ll have endless fun making the kids car whatever they imagine. Watch their creativity run wild as they play make-believe or role play.
While your kids push and kick around on their ride-on toy, they’re able to get a little workout. The more they play around, the more they are getting those legs moving and increasing their physical activity. This will help build strong muscles, important for a growing toddler!
Ride-on toys can have a significant impact on improving their spatial awareness. Riding a kids car places them in environments where they learn their location in relation to their surroundings, enhancing their spatial awareness as they move around.
Although it is recommended that you supervise your child at all times when using a ride-on toy, you’re still able to give that little bit of independence as they choose how and where they maneuver the ride-on car. By giving them the opportunity to make decisions by themselves they’re able to build their self-confidence, an important trait for a growing child.
Having your toddler play on a ride-on car is a great opportunity to teach them the concept of rules. By getting creative and creating a mini road with signs and boundaries, you help encourage your child to be responsible and follow basic instructions.
