While toy cars are a great way for your children to learn and grow while also enjoying themselves, choosing an age-appropriate car is important. Only some cars are suitable for 1-year-olds.

When choosing a toy car for toddlers, pay attention to the parts involved.

For toddlers, choosing simple, sturdy cars with rounded corners and no small or detachable parts is best.

Look for toy cars that move easily and roll around smoothly. Cars without many specs, such as bright lights, or sound, will stimulate the imagination and encourage more role-play.
