The history of ride-on cars and push cars will take you back to 1890's. First ride on pedal cars were made out of raw wood or cardboard. Reaching the peak of popularity in the late 1920's, pedal cars experienced a resurgence with chain-driven models that took over in the 1950's to 1960's. From mid 1930's through late 1960's manufacturers of pedal cars stared to upgrade their models with working front and rear lights, custom paint jobs, working horn, and movable windshield.
From 1930's, after luxury automobile company Bugatti released a scaled down model of their car, most ride in cars were modified from wooden block with 4 wheels into recognizable models of their favorite adults cars with opening doors and detailed interior. The use of plastic made it possible for engineers to create electric toy cars, powered by small electric motors and a rechargeable battery.
Battery powered cars are the closest thing to real driving for kids. Operation of the electric toy vehicle is quite simple but has all the elements as an adult car; gas and break pedal and steering wheel. Kids always want to grow up fast and do things that adults do. Little kids always wanted to drive a car just like their mom and dad. That kids dream stated a slow evolution of toy cars that started with push cars, that had nothing but a body made of wood and 4 wheels, all the way to models looking electric car, that come with music, lights, and delicate designs.
