Power Wheels and other electric kids cars are great ways to get your young ones started on their driving skills in a safe and fun way. It's hard to beat the Power Wheels Dune Racer when it comes to getting out and driving from just learning or a kid that's been through the mud before. Though when "just driving around" doesn't quite cut it, then the Peg Perego John Deere Gator XUV is the one to look at for getting that little bit extra from the vehicle.

Regardless of what style driving or theme your child is into, there is an electric vehicle out there to let them feel like a big kid in their small ride. Just like when as adults, we got our driver's license and can finally drive — little ones get a sense of freedom. Then there are my kids who love to drive an just want to "go fast, Dad!"
