Not long after my son turned one we took him over to a friends house who had twins that were a month older than him. The twins had received a pair of battery powered electric ride on toys for their birthday and my son loved them.
Most kids are simply too small to power a trike or stay balanced on a balance bike because they don’t have the strength needed yet. With the little toddler ATVs though all they need to do is steer and hit the forward button. It’s simple enough my son was able to do it when he was 15 months old.
Of course powered riding toys can be a bit bigger than some smaller toddlers can handle so I’ve listed out some of the best electric ride on toys for one year old kids to make shopping a bit easier for you and for me when number two comes along. Hope it helps.
