Vintage Ride On Toys

I have a sentimental fondness for vintage ride on toys, and I think it’s kinda sad they no longer make such toys today. My inner child wakes up every time I see those distressed rocking horses, time honored fire tracks and wobbly bikes with chipped paint. Return with me to those thrilling days of yesteryear in this collection.

Our advice Buying Guide

Vintage ride on toys belong to a special breed of trinkets. At one part, they are cool-looking. valuable toys that any kid would want to have. But, they are also toys that toddlers can ride on. It's no wonder why children and adults alike fantasize about owning at least one of them.

If you are thinking of getting vintage ride-on toys for your youngsters, then here are a few things that you need to consider:

Types

The first thing to consider is the type of vintage ride on toy you are planning to get. Ride-on toys are often classified into rocking toys, pull toys, push toys, centrifugal toys, pedal toys, and powered ride-on toys.

  • A rocking ride-on toy is one that can rock back and forth. Since the movements are limited to a rocking motion, it's safer compared to other ride-on toys. Hence, it's the type of ride-on toy that's best used by toddlers.
  • The classic red wagon is an example of the pull toy. It's the type in which one user is able to ride on the toy, and another pulls it to move forward.  Other forms of this particular type may come in choo-choo trains, planes, cars, and trucks.
  • A push ride-on toy is the opposite of pull toys. With this type of ride-on toy, the user can do the pushing to move forward. The toy scooter is an excellent example of this type. This type of ride-on toy is very enjoyable for most kids. On the downside, the user must have good motor coordination. Hence, it's a toy recommended for older kids.
  • Centrifugal ride-on toys make use of centrifugal force to move the toys forward. They are very fun to play with, they don’t need pedals, and they stand on a low profile. Hence, they are good toys for kids.
  • As the name suggests, pedal toys come with pedals. This specific type of ride-on toy comes with varying number of wheels, typically from two to four. Like push toys, this type of toy needs higher levels of motor coordination. Hence, it's usually advisable for older kids.
  • Powered ride-on toys are for the older kids. These toys are relatively powerful because they have motors in them. Although they are extremely enjoyable for most kids, they are also a bit more hazardous.

Right Size

Choosing the right size is very critical. The only way to know the right size is to allow the child to sit on the toy. Make sure that your kid's knees are free to move. Also, make sure that the user would be able to reach the floor comfortably while on the toy.

Right Age

Vintage ride-on toys are designed for a specific age range. Hence, make sure that you check the age range of the toy to see if it's appropriate for the user. If the toy's recommended age is above your child's age, then it's better to shop for something else. When it comes to the safety of your child, being safe is a lot better than being sorry.
