Classic Toy Cars

Updated on March 13, 2013

Classic Toy Cars

Classic toy cars are fun for kids to play with and make great gift ideas for boys of all ages. Boys have always liked playing with toy cars and are one of the all time classic toys for kids. Featured below are some popular classic toy cars that are great for boys to collect and play with.

If you've ever spent time with little boys, you know that they gravitate toward ride on toys, especially those that look like cars. The realistic look or a semi-realistic car appearance is enough to get their adrenaline going. The sounds are fun and the antics hilarious. I have 4 boys, and believe me, I have experienced my share of enjoying ride-on cars. These classics would have been just their thing in their toddler days!

The Best Classic Toy Cars

Shake and Go Cars are tremendously fun for children, and they last a long time, too. Our original shake and go set is still great after several years, and though my son is nearly ten years old, he still enjoys putting the track together and playing. It's much more durable than many of the more flimsy tracks.

Character cars are some of the best on the market. You can't go wrong with the identification they have with characters they've seen on the big screen.

Lightning McQueen is a fave of my youngest, though he is outgrowing the stage of cartoon heroes that aren't comic book characters. This shake n go set will charm the two to five year old.


Top Rated Classic Toy Cars and Classic Characters

The Batmobile is a favorite as my boys move into their stage of fascination with superheroes. Cars with relevance to their interests make a big difference.

Popular Classic Toy Car Designs

Ride on car toys are so much fun for youngsters. Not only can they ride, but in their eyes, it's like being in a real car. This style, giving the parents a push bar, is perfect for tired little legs that want to go far but lack the endurance it takes to get there.

This is a wonderful choice as a first or second birthday gift for a child, grandchild or nephew.

      I have not, however I really like when shows like American Restoration restores cars like these, a 57 Chevy would be cool to have (and I don't have children either, just me a big kid). Love the one in the intro photo.
