Magic Car Reviews: Pick Best Swing Car for Kids in India (2019)
For the little adventurers, there’s nothing more fun and exciting than rolling and speeding indoors and out. What’s even better, the ride-on toy cars play an important role in cultivating your children’s psychomotor, cognitive skills, coordination, and spatial intelligence. So, why not gift your kid her first ride-on toy, a swing magic car?
We have picked the best magic car for kids based on three parameters: Features, safety and durability. Check our top pick beforehand.
Kids Love to Ride Magic Car:
The self-powered swing magic cars use only gravity and centrifugal force – no batteries, no pedals. Kids need to twist and wiggle the steering wheel and the magic car moves forward, backward, and even sideways. When ready to stop, he or she may stop twisting the steering and the car slows down immediately.
The magic car models sit low to the ground making it easier for the kids to put their feet on the ground and stop the car. Unlike tricycle for kids, magic car does not have option for parental control.
Though it rides effortlessly on smooth and hard surfaces, slight inclines, grass, gravel or cracked walkway may hinder its motion. Remember, swing car isn’t designed to use on wooden or laminate floors, too. The sturdy ride-on won’t tip over or endanger the kids as the exterior frameworks and speed limit are safer for kids 2 years and up. Still, parents’ supervision and wearing a baby helmet and elbow/knee pads are recommended. But this ride-on car is very safe for toddler and I have not seen any kid to wear those safety gears.
Kids magic cars today are way different from what they used to be a decade ago – no more pedaling, pulling, or long hours of charging. Today, almost all kid-powered cars that are sold in India come with speakers, music, flashing lights, remote control etc as the manufacturers constantly upgrade them with the latest technologies.
A Few Handy Tips Before Buying Swing Magic Car for Your Kid:
With so many designs and models available online, buying the right (and the best) swing magic car for your kid is not as easy as ABC. And that’s why you as a parent should consider these:
- Strength and durability: Always go for a sturdy, durable, and low-maintenance toy car.
- Price: What would you like to pay for – style or substance?
- Long-term or short-term use: All kids magic cars come with allowed rider weight (and age range). But if you think your son or daughter will surpass the kg’s in a few months, you may opt for ones that offer more weight carrying capacity or are adult-friendly.
- Safety: Ensure the swing car meets the toy safety standards. Also look for better steering control, leg and backrest support, durable wheels, etc.
- Add-on features: Make sure your child’s preference and the add-on features the manufacturer offers are on the same page. For example, if your little girl is into cartoons and music, you can get magic cars with inbuilt music and cartoon graphics.
