Can be pedaled forward or backward. Air-up wheels like a bike to give a better and more versatile ride. Car can coast without pedaling. The seat can adjust backward and forward to grow with your child, or to fit different sized kids. An older child can still use and enjoy this car.
The pedals are a little short for this car to go up hills very easily.
Comes with rubber wheels. Has a bucket seat that can adjust for the height of the child. Steel tube frame construction. Also comes in pink.
While the brake works, it is essentially just a metal bar that pushes against the wheel. Easy to assemble. Good construction materials. Rubber tires do a good job on several types of surfaces including grass or dirt. Well built and heavy duty.
Includes a hand-brake. Can handle a lot of kid-weight – up to 120 pounds. Has an adjustable seat. Steel tube frame. Rubber tires do a better job than hard plastic.

These cars are beautiful and durable, but you really need to get them for very young children, or a family just starting. They are quickly outgrown.
Comes with a bar attachment for an adult to push. Very versatile. Works as a rocker, a push rider, and an independent pedal car. Easy to put together. Easy to convert from one function to another. A sturdy product that does not feel cheap.
The handlebars and pedals are both a little awkwardly placed for some toddlers.

Pedal cars are similar to go-carts, although they have no motor – it’s up to the personal pedalling to control the speed. Pedal cars debuted soon after real cars took to the streets, as a vehicle anyone could drive (and could more ably afford). The first main difference in models is the age they are geared toward, with pedal cars for young kids being plastic, low to the ground, unable to go too fast, and very safe and durable. These are meant for evenly paved ground. Those for older children to adults are more built for racing, sit higher, usually are built from metal parts, and can travel over rougher terrain. Pedal car prices range from $50 to $300.
