Ride On Toys for 1 Year Olds and Toddlers

Updated on October 19, 2014

Ride-On Toys for Young Children

If you're looking for ride-on toys for toddlers or 1 year olds, you're in the right place. Ride-on toys are of great way to help children with their development. Improved coordination and balance plus increased strength are some of the most obvious benefits of playing with ride-on toys. Riding on those toys might be a little challenging for the little one at first, but that's the point - it stimulates development of certain skills.

Let's not forget about another thing - the child should have a great time playing with their ride-on toy. That's true for all children - if you want your child to learn something quickly and effortlessly, make sure he or she is having a blast while learning this new skill. If it's boring, the child won't care to continue practicing the skill or learning more about it.

When choosing a ride-on toy for your toddler, make sure you'll choose something age-appropriate. The younger the child, the easier to operate should the toys be.

Ride-on toys for the youngest children - they help your baby with their first steps and (often) much more.

Laugh and Learn Stride-to-Ride Puppy can be easily converted from a ride-on toy to a walker. It plays songs and is full of lights. It also helps kids learn about shapes and toys. Great choice for a 1 year old to start their adventure with ride-ons.

Wheely Bug is an easy to ride-on toy for with multidirectional casters (that make turning easy). It's very easy for kids to move and spin it using their legs. It's a well-made toy for kids and it will last quite some time. There are few models available, pick one depending on your and your child's preferences. One more thing - read some customer reviews - that will help you pick the right size.

Pillow Racers - Lady Bug

Pillow Racers toys are a great choice if you're looking for inexpensive ride-on toys. You can detach the character (in this case the lady bug) from the base - it becomes a cuddly pillow. The grip handle attached to the base provides stability for the kid and caster wheels allow quick turns.

Push Around Buggy

Push Around Buggy is a great ride-on toy for 1 year olds and even a little younger kids. You just slip the baby into the molded seat, fasten the seat belt (yes, it has a seat belt, perfect for keeping younger kids safe) and you're ready to go. The child has a steering wheel with a horn (that actually honks), but the person who actually steers the vehicle is you. It's great for both riding around the house and for walks outside. Some people even use it as an alternative to a stroller and it works pretty well in that role.

Ride On Toys for Toddlers

Girls Classic Dual Deck Tricycle

Girls Classic Dual Deck Tricycle is a great choice if you're looking for a tricycle for a little girl. It's easy to put together and very sturdy. If you're not certain that this one will be a good fit for your daughter/granddaughter/niece, read few customer reviews, they will help you in making the right decision.



PlasmaCar is a unique ride-on toy - turning the steering wheel propels it forward. That means no batteries or pedals needed. It's great for both indoor and outdoor use, but please remember that it's meant to be used on a smooth, flat and hard surface. On other surfaces it won't function properly. It's easy to drive for kids and they are having a blast doing it. What's great is that kids of (almost) any age love it and older kids can drive their younger siblings around.

All-Terrain Cargo Wagon
