Power Wheels For Big Kids

Power wheels for big kids could mean a lot of things. For those of us who grew up before the beginning of the twenty-first century, power wheels were a specific brand of pedal propelled tricycle for the under 5 crowd.

So much for nostalgia. Now let’s move into the current century. Power wheels have taken on a whole new meaning. You can still get those trikes, but now you can get models that are set up for older kids. Between vehicles that are battery powered and even miniature vehicles with small gasoline motors, bigger kids can enjoy the wind in their hair and gain experience with steering and managing a powered vehicle well before they are old enough to reach the pedals in mom or dad’s car.

“Big Kids” is a relative term. For the age five through perhaps age eight group, there are electric vehicles that come in all sorts of shapes and descriptions. These vehicles top speed usually maxes out at around five miles per hour. Youngsters can enjoy driving a batmobile, a farm tractor or a replica of the family car. Something that will probably come a lot closer to making their day (and yours because it is smaller) is the Power Wheels Wild thing. It looks a lot like a saucer on wheels and can spin in circles, go straight or easily navigate an obstacle course.

Powered wheels or powered ride-on toys are available for the age eight through twelve crowd as well as the elementary school brigade. Some of the battery-powered replica vehicles that are built to child sizes can reach as high as 90 miles per hour! Fortunately, most of them come with parental remote-control features, including the ability to govern your child’s maximum speed. Many of them include features such as proximity alarms, tip resistant turn governors and similar features.

Helmets and parental supervision are advised for all powered vehicles. With that said, youngsters can have a lot of fun with these vehicles while learning the basics of steering, backing and generally manipulating a powered vehicle.
