At this age, they are hearing some lot different perspectives from their peers and may have no clue, how to process all of that, because their minds are still more in kid mode.

Here are our best ride on cars for 11 year olds:

Razor Spinning Drifting Kids Ride On

We like to call this one, the ultimate drifting machine! It almost can be described as a “floating bumper car”. It would be cool to have a small circle of friends, who each have their own ride on and go “drive it” or “drift it” in outdoor, go cart fashion.

Drifting Ride on PROS

The features of this cool ride come with a variable speed, foot pedal and the acceleration reach speeds of up to a whopping 12 mph! This is definitely not a toy for the younger crowds!

In addition to the wheel which is used to spin the cart around, there is the drift bar. It allows the drivers to have complete control of their drifts, spins, and cornering those with the same ride on car!

Drifting Ride on CONS

The only caution I have about this is that, if you have younger kids you may want to make it clear, that it is a “big kid” toy. The speed is much to high for some of younger kids to take on a ride.

 Segway Ninebot ES2 Electric Kick Scooter

This very futuristic drifter is just what the toy doctor ordered! Many ride on cars today have some pretty cool designs. However, this particular model reminds me of something that is a little ahead of its time. The Electrical Triker 24V float scooter (now with Lithium batteries) is fast becoming the scooter that all the big kids want.

Electric Scooter PROS

Your big kid can now drive this at speeds, as much as 10 mph. It can swiftly drift around corners. Then stop and make full 360 level spins, with its highly durable and sturdy rear caster wheels.

What I really like about scooters in general is that they don’t take as long to charge up, as other types of “vehicles”. The charge time for a scooter is a mere 2 to 3 hours.

Electric Scooter CONS

This is more cautionary. If there is younger sibling around like 9 or younger, just be mindful that they don’t sneak a ride. This ride on car operates with more speed and requires more coordination than some of the other options you may see on this site.

X-PRO Jaguar 1000 Electric Kids ATV Quad

This ATV is the ultimate big kid ride, for the one who loves rugged play and hardcore fun. Take this out beyond the backyard for loads of fun.


Since this design is made for older kids, it is also made for more environments. You can take this out to the desert, or the campsite for some real nature bound fun.

The weight capacity for this ATV is 160 lbs! Some parents may even actually get to drive this sports quad.

It runs for two solid hours and can be driven up to 8 mph.

jaguar ATV CONS

There is a bit of assembly required for this ride on car. So, you may want to make some set apart time to work on this. It is best to schedule the charge time, in the evenings when your child is headed to bed. A full charge can take up to 8 hours.
