Ride On Toys – Tot Gift Guide
Ride on toys are not only fun, they’re extremely beneficial for both your tot’s physical and cognitive development! From rockers to balance bikes, we’ve got 15 amazing options to choose from.
Ride on toys are possibly one of the most important things you can give a child for their development. Whether it’s a rocker, balance bike, trike or peddle car, they all enable kids to strengthen their core and leg muscles, hone their balance and work on their coordination skills. They also get to learn just what their little bodies are capable of, which will boost their confidence.
When children are actively playing, their brains are thinking, imagining, solving problems and developing at full speed! While it may only look like physical exercise, playing on a ride on toy will also help develop your tot’s vocabulary and ability to express themselves emotionally.
Below are 15 ride on toys we love divided into age groups.
