As a parent, there are few better gifts to consider than the wide variety of Ride on Cars with Parental Remote Controls. It’s actually quite surprising at how sleek and sophisticated these ride-on cars and trucks look and drive. Recently, we put together a guide to buying Luxury Ride-On Cars, and most of them also had parental remote controls.
Give a child something with motion and they are sure to be enthralled. Ride on toys for kids never go out of style and are always a big hit at Christmas time. Considering a ride on car with parental remote control can be a meaningful and long-lasting gift to meet your child’s wildest desires. While a brand new set of wheels may mean the world to them, knowing you’ve made the right choice can mean a great deal to you.
Intro | Ride On Cars with Parental Remote Control
A ride on toy can be a great toy to boost a child’s independence. These are the perfect size for little legs to climb up into with realistic detail to give them the feel of being behind the wheel. Younger children such as toddlers, however, may not quite be ready to understand the concept of acceleration by pressing a pedal. The ability to steer left and ride also require motor skill development young toddlers may not have acquired. This is where a ride on car with parental remote control comes in handy. These models are great for beginners as it allows parents to propel and control the vehicle until they can drive it themselves.
An electric ride on car is not only a great entertaining toy for kids, but it can also aid in their development. Simple actions such as steering and pressing buttons that control different functions are great for building skills and learning cause and effect. While a parental control remote will allow parents to control the vehicle for beginners, they will gradually learn how to steer and gain control to build their way up to driving the car on their own.

Toy ride on vehicles that offer a parent remote control typically have a switch on the dashboard allowing you to use in manual mode or using the remote control. The remote mode function disables the foot pedal so the vehicle is controlled solely from the remote. Remote control systems work using one of three systems: radio frequency, bluetooth or smartphone. The most common system ride-on cars use is the radio frequency. This is the same frequency used in smaller RC toy cars. One downside to ride-on cars using this frequency in remote controls is the universal frequency can often cause interference when two cars are driven at once.
The next common system used for operating remote control ride on cars is 2.4G bluetooth. If the toy ride-on car remote control simply lists 2.4Ghz then it uses micro-frequencies to communicate the functions of the remote to the car. This is gaining popularity as it allows multiple ride-on cars to be used at once without causing interference between them and allows for faster, reliable control.
The last and least common is the smartphone remote app. This allows you to control the vehicle right from your smartphone or a tablet rather than a remote control device. This type of system is still fairly new so it isn’t widely available, however, it is anticipated to be offered in more ride on cars in the future.
Prior to use, most R/C ride on vehicles will require syncing to the remote. You will need to refer to the user guide on how to sync the remote properly with the particular model you purchase. Generally, in most models the car must be turned off prior to syncing. Insert the required batteries into the parent remote. The remote control will most likely feature lights that flash once batteries are installed and it’s turned on. Once this is achieved you can turn on the car and it will automatically sync to the remote. This step may need to be performed each time prior to use when using in parental control.

A ride on car can make a child’s dream come true, but don’t just settle for the models on display at the big retailers. Additional features you want to look for in a ride-on electric car for kids are those that incorporate safety and better riding quality. These will add better value to give you and your little driver an overall better experience so you get the most for your money.
Soft Start Function – the ride-on electric powered cars for kids that meet the U.S. Consumer Toy Safety Standard are equipped with this feature which offers a gradual start. This provides a safer transition into motion as the vehicle propels forward to lessen the possibilities of injury.
Remote Control Override – some toy ride on cars with a parental remote control will allow you to override the manual functions to control the car using the remote. This is beneficial for toddlers learning to steer and drive the car manually to allow parents the ability to stop and control the vehicle to keep them clear from obstacles and out of harm’s way.
Battery Voltage – When considering a ride-on electric powered car for your child, battery voltage is something you need to consider based on the age of your child and what they’ll be riding it on. The voltage determines the power of the vehicle – the higher the voltage, the faster it goes. A 6V ride on car will reach a top speed of 3 miles per hour, suitable for smooth or paved surfaces, and have an average run time of 45-60 minutes. A 12V ride on car reaches up to 5 MPH with an average run time of 1-1.5 hours and can take on grass or gravel.

Ride On Car Battery Care
It’s exciting when your child receives their very first set of wheels. A few careful tips can extend the excitement and protect your purchase by properly caring for it. You should read the user manual thoroughly before assembling it to familiarize yourself with the parts and ensure everything is included for proper assembly. Also be sure to charge the battery fully prior to using it. This is an important factor if you’re planning to surprise your child with the car fully assembled.
It is standard for manufacturers to precharge the battery of the product before packaging to no less than 70%. Various factors can affect how long the charge of the battery holds up such as temperature changes and duration of it being stored before purchased. In most cases the battery has enough charge to test the car once it’s assembled, but must be charged fully before actual use. Failure to fully charge the battery can result in possibly damaging the battery or at least hinder the life. Once it has been fully charged be sure to connect it to the vehicle.
Additional features used with the car while driving may drain the battery life quicker. For instance, using the headlights or any LED lights on the car when driving will shorten the run time as it uses more battery power. If your child will be getting a great deal of use from their toy vehicle or when being used by more than one child, you might want to consider purchasing a backup battery.
