Best ride-on toys for toddlers

Learning co-ordination, balance and how to whizz around takes practice, encouragement and plenty of fun. What better way to learn these, than the use of a ride-on toy? Here is our list of the best ride-on toys for toddlers. Don’t forget little ones are still learning to balance so a helmet is a must.

Ride-on toys for toddlers - Strider Bike

Strider Bike have sold 1.5 million bikes, helping that many youngsters to ride, that says it all! Along with thousands of parents, we love Strider Bike and their number 1 selling bike the Sport. Parents will be happy to know it has a simple, no tool assembly so it makes the perfect ‘unwrap and play’ gift. The frame is lightweight making it easy for toddlers to control and the EVA polymer tyres are puncture proof so you won’t have to worry about that either! 

Ride-on toys for toddlers - Little Tikes Princess carriage

Perfect for little princesses is this Little Tikes Princess Horse and Carriage, it will definitely capture little imaginations and encourage creative play as well as fun in the garden. The carriage has reins and makes a life like ‘clip-clop’ sound when the horse starts to move. Little Tikes are well known and loved for their Cozy Coupe so we know this ride-on is going to be robust and last for years to come.

Ride-on toys for toddlers - unirider

The mountain buggy unirider is a fun riding experience for little toddlers to help them develop balance and confidence. It’s the perfect solution for youngsters with tired legs or who fancy a whizz around outdoors. The single 12” air filled tyre is ready to tackle all terrains, so get ready for an adventure. This unique ride-on has been shortlisted in the 2017, Best Baby & Toddler Gear Awards, does it win gold in your eyes?

Ride-on toys for toddlers - smarTrike

Everyone has heard of smarTrike and for good reason. The new 5-in-1 Recliner Infinity offers years of enjoyment for little riders. Suitable from when your baby can sit up unaided this trike grows and evolves with them. There are 5 different stages from a reclining seat (for laying back and enjoying the stroll) to a classic trike where little ones can ride independently and every stage in between. It’s a classic and just had to be shortlisted in our Best Baby & Toddler Gear, Ride-On toy category.

Ride-on toys for toddlers - Globber

The Globber Evo 4-in-1 Plus is the only scooter that has made the shortlist in the Best Baby & Toddler Gear Awards this year and we love it. It can be used from 12 months and offers years of fun as it can be used up to around 6 years old. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this as it starts as a ride-on seat with a parental handlebar for mum and dad to push and steer but gradually grows into a 3 wheeled scooter perfect for racing around on.

The Wishbone Bike Recycled Edition was last year's best ride-on toy gold winner and we can see why. It’s super adjustable and can be converted from a push-trike to a balance bike, from small to tall and it helps children from 12 months to walk, ride and balance. Not only is the design sleek but it is also made from 100% recycled plastic, it’s strong, durable and built for years of use, did we mention it can be used up to the age of 6?

Ride-on toys for toddlers - Peg Perego

When it comes to battery operated ride-on toys, Peg Perego go all out and we couldn’t be more pleased. To pick a favourite of theirs is difficult but at the moment it has to be the rather classy, Vespa. Peg Perego never miss a trick with their ride-ons, this even has blinking lights, a horn and it makes engine sounds. Although it’s still a toy it is an exact replica of the real thing, what more could you little one want to scoot around on? 

Ride-on toys for toddlers - Feber

Here’s the blow the budget ride-on toy and something a grandparent would probably buy for those little tots! It’s a battery operated ride-on Range Rover Sport from Feber. It has working doors, both forward and reverse gears and a cool sound system.The car has 2 seats so who’s going to be the driver and who is going to be the passenger?
