How to choose the best ride on car with parental remote control

Buying your kid’s first electric ride on car is an exciting milestone! If they’ve been playing with toy cars for years and are ready to take that next step, they’re guaranteed to have endless fun in their own racing car. However, as a parent, you’ll want to be sure that you’re investing in the right piece of kit for your little car lover.

When it comes to selecting the best kids’ electric ride on, there are several key factors to consider. That’s why we’ve put together a checklist to make your purchase a smooth, smooth ride.

Age range

Not all ride-on cars are suitable for every age. You’ll want to choose a model that matches your child’s age and size, ensuring they can comfortably reach the steering wheel and operate the vehicle safely.

We stock a variety of options for different ages ranging from 2 years old all the way to 12 years old! Once you’ve entered into the delightful world of having older kids, it’s easy to upgrade them to a brand-new vehicle suitable for their age.

Shop our products by age category to find the most suitable ride on car for your little one:


From sleek ride on Mercedes-Benz replicas to rugged ride on Range Rovers and sporty kids’ Jeeps, there’s a wide variety of styles available to suit your child’s preferences. Let their imagination run wild with a ride that mirrors their dream vehicle.


Most kids’ electric cars offer two speeds – a low and high setting. This feature allows you to control the top speed, ensuring your child’s safety as they learn to manoeuvre their little vehicle. Our remote control cars can reach speeds of up to 5km/h depending on the weight capacity and age suitability. 

Take a look at our guide on how fast 6v, 12v and 24v kids electric cars go to find more tips and guidance.


Look for essential features like working suspension, opening doors, a working horn, LED lights, and even a USB port for added entertainment. These extras can elevate your little one’s riding experience and make it even more exciting.

Parental controls

Many parents love having a remote control they can use to help steer and stop their child’s electric ride on car. If you’re worried about your little one’s safety when they first get into the driver’s seat of their new car, a parental remote control will provide you with the peace of mind you need.

And let’s face it, remote controls have a habit of going walk-about! If you misplace the remote controller for your child’s ride on car, don’t worry; you can buy replacement ride on car remote controls and other spare parts online for speedy delivery. Most universal remotes will work with your car, but always double-check against the product guidance specific to your model to avoid disappointment.

Weight capacity

Each of our remote control cars will also have a maximum weight capacity to help you pick the right one. Younger children and older children all grow at different speeds, so you may find your child fits a different weight capacity. 

Before choosing an electric ride on car for your child, check the maximum weight limits for the models you’re considering to make sure their new wheels will be suitable for their age and size.


Another thing to think about is what battery power the ride on car has. Most kids electric cars will either have a 6v, 12v, 24v or 36v battery. Our 12v ride on cars and 24v ride on cars offer excellent battery life and keep your kids entertained during playtime. 

Endless possibilities with Electric Ride on Cars

Kids’ electric cars offer your little racers a fantastic opportunity to play, learn, and grow.

By selecting the right car based on your child’s age, style preferences, and essential features, you can ensure they have a great time while staying safe, giving you peace of mind. These miniature vehicles provide endless entertainment and memorable experiences for your child, making them a must-have for any young car lover.
