Best Ride on Toys for Kids and Toddlers

Best Ride on Toys for Kids and Toddlers-My Happy Helpers

My Happy Helpers |

There are few toys out there that bring as much visceral joy to our little ones as ride on toys. Who can blame them? We all know the feeling: it’s the same one that comes from driving a car, riding a bike and a horse. It’s the feeling of being able to move just that little bit faster than we normally would, and with just a little less effort. At My Happy Helpers, we’re big believers that this feeling should be cherished and passed on to our kids as soon as possible. 


For this reason, we are proud to offer you ride on toys. These miraculous devices come with as many iterations as you can possibly imagine. There are toys that look like cars and toys that look like animals. There are toys that rock, toys that roll, and toys that bounce. Some are wooden, and some are fuzzy. One thing is for sure, though: all of them are intensely adorable, and your child will love you for buying one. 

Age Groups For Ride On Toys

Naturally, kids at different ages will be better suited to different types of ride on toys. Our ride toys for toddlers and babies are intended to be used for several years into early childhood. We have ride on toys for 1-year-olds who can bounce and are taking their first steps, as well as some of the best ride on toys for 2-3 year-olds and the best ride ons for 4-year-olds who have a more advanced muscular capacity. 

Why Playing With Ride On Toys is Good For Kids

Despite being hugely entertaining for your kids (and for those watching!), ride on toys provide unique educational benefits sometimes hard to find in other toys. Fine motor skills, coordination, balance and spatial awareness are all attributes that kids have been known to develop by playing with ride on toys. As they grow up, these skills will stand them in good stead for many activities, but chiefly school sports, where being in tune with your body is very important. By starting your kids early with ride on toys, you’ll be giving them a huge leg up for down the track. 

How to Choose a Ride On Toy


Since there are so many types of ride on toys to choose from, our recommendation would be to think about what type of toy your child would enjoy the most. Do they like animals, insects and imaginary creatures, or cars, trucks and boats? You might want to browse our online collection of wooden and vehicular ride on toys with your child to see which they like best. Another thing to consider is where the toy is most likely to be used and how much space you have for your child to play in. For instance, smaller spaces might lend themselves to a bouncer ride on toy instead of a ride on toy car, which might be better suited to the outdoors.
