Thanks to Dynacraft for partnering with me for today’s sponsored post.
Our kids love ride-on-toys and to be honest; I love watching them in their ride-on-toys. They were just starting to hit the market when I was younger, but I can’t remember anyone having one until I was a teenager. I was babysitting, and the little girl had one in her garage. I remember thinking that she was going to have so much fun with it, and I remember thinking “I hope she’s grateful!” She was. 🙂
Watching our kids play with their ride-on-toys reminds me that they are just kids enjoying their childhood. I love to watch them draw “roads” with their sidewalk chalk and drive their Dynacraft Avengers 12V 4×4 Model on their road. It retails for $299 at Dynacraft. I love to watch them pretend to be superheroes, out to catch a villain. I think that ride-on-toys have so many benefits, even from the young age of three.
Benefits of ride-on-toys:
I love watching our kids ride around on their Dynacraft Avengers 12V 4×4 Model outside. They go into the cul-de-sac, and suddenly they are using their horn and fog lights to find their superhero friends and beat the villain. I listen to them talking about what they are doing, in their little make-believe world in front of our house. I love that they let their creativity soar when they are riding around – going forwards & in reverse in their 4X4, making plans and seeing them play out.
I’ll never forget it. The first time our son hopped in the Dynacraft Avengers 12V 4×4 and drove around our yard, for a full 45 minutes, running that battery to its end, with a massive smile on his face. (Luckily it comes with a 12 Volt Battery and Charger). He started out using the 2.5 MPH, but before I knew it, he had gone up to 5 MPH Speed.
As he learned to steer, change direction, honk the horn and turn on the fog lights, he grew in confidence. By the end, he was waving to me as he drove by, sure of his movements and sure of himself! Goodbye yard… hello, driveway. 😉 One small step for him… one big step for his confidence.
Above all, my favorite thing about the ride-on-toys, like Dynacraft Avengers 12V 4×4 is that it takes our kids outside. As soon as they get home from school, they don’t run for their tablets… they run for their 4X4, they run for their Princess Carriage, they run for their bikes. There are so many benefits to kids spending time outdoors… more than I can even write in this post. To know that my kids prefer to be outside, playing and imagining, makes me a happy mom.
Lastly, these ride-on-toys teach responsibility. It’s not a toy that gets tossed into the closet after a week. No, we will have the ride-on-toys for years. When one child has outgrown it in size, their younger sibling will take over for years of fun.
I love that our kids want to take care of it. They wash it, like a real vehicle. They keep it in the garage, to avoid it getting dirty or wet outside. Yes, it has a 1 Year Limited Warranty, but they don’t know that, and they won’t need it. They take excellent care of their 4X4 and other ride-on-toys, which makes Mickey happy. “Practicing for a real car.” 🙂
