This is pure entertainment that fuels imagination with all the neat and life like features.

This hoverboard will be most attractive to boys that are pre-teen and on. Despite what it may look like, this hoverboard is easy for kids to learn to ride. I believe that your boy will enjoy the “perceived challenge” of riding this hoverboard.

Your big boy will also be drawn by it’s sleek design and somewhat futuristic look. At this age boys love to show off their “toys” to their friends.

What would be really fun for your boy is to join in with other kids in the neighborhood or at school, for fun races (or even just riding along with their bud to school).

From about two years old, little boys would enjoy a slow speed electric car. Yes, they may not be strong enough to power it themselves. However, many ride-on cars tend to come with parental remote control. You are then able to set the parameters and drive the car for them.

Boys between the ages of 3 to 4 years old, would like to with play something a little bit faster. They are able to grasp things push and pull things. So, a ride-on with some extra features, whistles and horns would be something that they would enjoy.

As your child gets a little older, your little boy might want something that looks more realistic. For ages 5 to 7, little boys are drawn to toys that look more sporty, sharp and cool. Ride- on toys in this age category, tend to come with radios, horns and other built in features, that mimic adult cars.

Boys between ages of 8 to 13, might begin to want something that has better, more mechanical features. Features that mimic the look and feel of real, more grown up versions. They may be drifting away from their imaginative state.

Naturally, causing them to want something fast and impressive to show off to their little guy friends. In that case, they would definitely enjoy electric scooters, Segway’s and motor bikes.

For boys that are 14 years and up, they are definitely wanting more of what adults have. They will more than likely desire something that is on the sporty side. Designed with bolder, more stand out physical designs and colors.

Need I say that SPEED will play a huge role? Powered ride on’s for this age, are usually able to speed up to 15 mph.So, they will be more drawn to bigger and better options, that might be go-karts, powered vehicles and ATV’s.

Benefits of Ride-On Toys for Boys

 Development of Fine Motor Skills

If you can believe it or not, ride on toys can help your child develop their motor skills, from their toddler years. For little boys, this would definitely accelerate their motor skills development. Generally speaking, it is a known fact that the motor skills of boys, can tend to develop slower than girls. However, that doesn’t have to always be true.

When you employ toys and activities from the beginning that help to develop the fine motors skills, you can move their development process along a lot quicker. Inadvertently, it gives them more confidence as they grow, in their earliest developmental stages. It gives them this “can do” attitude from a young age.

So, how exactly does it help develop fine motor skills? Well, it helps them to develop their grasp on things like steering wheels, joysticks, and what other gadgets manufacturers like to put in. Exercising those muscles helps them to have a better grasp all around.

Desire to Explore

The next thing that ride on toys do, is stir up in boy is the desire to explore. I believe that boys are born with the natural extinct to explore. Then there is imagination. Imagination, fuels exploration. Imagination and ride-on toys, fuels the curiosity and desire for exploration.

A Natural Integration of Physical Activity

Physical activity. It seems as though physical activity amongst kids, becomes less and less with each generation. Where little girls used to play outside a lot more, or work on crafts, etc. It is as though more and more; indoor activities are taking its place.

There are so many TV channels and shows to keep them sitting in front of the telly. All the digital games and toys, are killing the interest of being outside. Having a ride-on toy where one has to exert physical activity, opens the door for a child to be a child in a more natural sense.

In addition, boys tend to have an endless well of energy. It is definitely not enough to have them just playing videos or using the ipad for entertainment. Outdoor play does something to the development of a boy, that other activities may not cater or fully awaken.

The type of ride-on toys that will get your little boy to drain that extra energy and develop their natural boyhood instinct’s  are bikes, trikes and skateboards. These options help to strengthen your child’s ability to have a greater balance, strengthen muscles and build endurance.

Increase Share and Play-Time

Ride on toys also gives girls opportunities to play with others. There are several types of ride-on toys that allow for their friend, or a sibling to join them in on the fun.

Not only are they having a good time but, they are also learning how to share. They are also learning how to communicate and think about others and not just themselves.
