CHOOSING THE RIGHT GIRLS BATTERY POWERED CARS
First and Foremost don’t by your girls power wheels based on looks alone. Fisher Price is known for making top quality battery operated vehicles but not all things are created equal. The cars that look the “prettiest” may not be the best performing and best bang for your buck. There are a few considerations that should be reviewed when choosing your girls battery powered cars:
SPEED – BATTERY POWER
Fisher Price Power Wheels currently come powered by a 6 volt battery or a 12 volt battery. The 6V girls battery powered cars will generally go at about 2.5 mph, the 12 volt battery powered cars will power the vehicle at 5 mph maximum. Take note that most of the 12 volt vehicles will have 2 speed options, with the 5 mph “turbo” easily disconnected so your girl cannot use it until you feel comfortable with her abilities in operating the car.
The 2.5 mph speed is find for most toddlers as they are getting use to there new battery powered cars, but after a few weeks it may seem kind of slow and can get boring especially for the girls that are a little older. Having the ability to boost it up to 5 mph is a great advantage and will allow the car to get the most use possible for the longest time.
DRIVING TERRAIN – NOT ALL BATTERY POWERED CARS ARE EQUAL
One of the biggest dissapointments is getting a new power wheel to find out that it ability to drive on grass is non-existent. Different cars perform better on different surfaces, and there are several factors that go into the driveability of vehicls, Size of Batter (Bigger Batter = More Power), Traction Ability (Bigger Tires = Better Traction (Monster Traction Series is the best), Tire Tread and Width (Wider more Rugged = Better Traction), and the Weight of the Battery operated vehicle.
All Fisher Price Batter Powered Cars for Girls will be satisfactory on smooth hard surfaces, but consider the environments around your house especially in the areas your girls will be riding in more than others, we don’t want them to be disappointed in there new rides! And as parents, you don’t want to have to follow your purchase pushing it along all the time if it gets stuck.
BRAKE SAFETY – PEACE OF MIND KNOWING YOUR GIRL IS SAFE IN HER BATTERY POWERED CAR
Most models Fisher Price Power Wheels have the ‘Power Lock’ braking system. Look for this option when choosing your battery powered ride. Its especially important on the faster 12 volt battery cars. The ‘Power Lock’ provides instant breaking when the accelerator is released, this can add peace of mind knowing your baby girl isn’t going to keep on going down a hill after she lets off the pedal. It also works out very well for the older kids to as it provides the ability to pull off some pretty cool slide tricks.
