Chinese Toy Ride-on Car

One of the benefits of this blog is that Chinese manufacturers think I run a baby store. I see all sorts of product pitches.

Behold the Ride On Car!

Photo of a pink ride-on car with a child sittong on a seat containing two wheels underneath. The child is holding two joysticks that protrude from a pillar between his legs. His feet rest on a platform connected to the wheels. There is no visible wheel holding the front of the toy up off the ground.

Unlike self-powered ride-on toys, this one runs on batteries. It moves forward and in reverse, and can spin 360 degrees. I hope there’s a third wheel underneath the steering column otherwise this is a neat floor scraping toy.

You can’t see it in the photo above, but there is a lap belt and a baffle plate on the back to prevent tipping.

The unusual physical design is apparently intended to resemble a motor bike. This toy is from Bizarro Atari World of the Future where motor bikes are steered with joysticks.

Photo of a similar ride-on toy as describing in the earlier photo, except this one is a deeper pink color and includes a remote control unit.

Holy @#$%^&*! a remote control?

This ride-on toy is 100 times more fun than placing a hamster in a hamster ball (or building a Lego cage truck for your hamster or creating a Lincoln Log maze for your hamster). Having a child truly is awesome fun. If you don’t have a baby, get yourself one today. They live a lot longer than two years.

    What is the weight limit?

    I would have had so much fun with this when my daughter was smaller. We had lots of days when we were exhausted, but she wanted us to push her around on some type of ride-on toy. This would have totally solved our problem…but then again, I have purchased way too many baby/toddler products.

    I don’t know the weight limit, but it’s listed for 3- to 5-year-olds.

    Never too early to get started on the road to a Wall-E future. Maybe by the time baby outgrows this, Rascal will be making a preschooler-size “mobility chair.”

    Whoa, sorry to double-comment but just saw the 3-5yo comment. Really? That baby in the picture looks well under age 2. However, given this information, I amend my earlier comment–strike preschooler and insert grade-schooler. ;)

    I want one of these NOW! This creates two problems: 1. Baby is not due ’till February and 2. My husband and brothers would have way to much fun playing bumper baby with this.

    Thank you thank you thank you! This is the PERFECT robot undercarriage for the newborn “Captain Pike” Halloween costume that I’ve been desperately wanting to construct! Just duct tape the baby on that sucker, throw on a cardboard box and an LED and we’re good to go!

    Now I just need another baby….
