18 Functional Toy Cars

From Child-Friendly ATVs to Luxurious Children's Cars

— April 7, 2014 — Autos
Ride-on toy cars have been popular for a very long time and some recent innovations have made toy cars cooler than ever.

It's no longer a wooden box with wheels that toy companies are making. More and more luxury kids vehicles are being made as well as simple remakes of classic designs. Some of you might remember the classic Barbie jeep, but these days, the cars kids lust for are modeled after Lamborghinis and other sports cars.

In this list you'll find plenty of innovations like cars modeled after popular action movies and video games, or meticulously crafted wooden cars that bring about a sense of luxury.

There are a number of awesome ride-on toy cars for you to choose from, just make sure you squeeze in a couple driving lessons before you send your toddler on a joyride.
