Cars for 6 Year Olds – 6 Best Picks!

So, your kid is six years old now! How the time has flown. Although, you still consider this precious one your baby, he/she is really morphing into a big kid now AND THEY know it.

At this age their gross motor skills are on fire and it makes them feel like a “big kid”. They are feeling more comfortable in their own skin and their physical activity proves it. By this age, children are able too:

-Move in time to the beat or rhythm of music

-Throw and catch a small ball well

-Skip, Gallop, Dance

-Swim well

-Ride a two-wheel bicycle

As you can see, there is about nothing that they cannot do, that other older kids can do! With that being said, a ride on car is the perfect activity for your already well-rounded and rambunctious 6-year-old kid.

Especially, by the end of the day, wouldn’t you like to have one more tool up your sleeve, to help relieve the last bit of residual energy they have? I believe that every tool and trick counts.
