Power Wheels are excellent gifts for kids, whether you’re a parent, grandparent or a friend or other family member looking to chip in together. They do a lot to help with a child’s development, from aiding in motor skills to teaching cause and effect and beyond. Not only that, but they are loads of fun that kids won’t get bored of. They’re great for inside and outside, and will last for years. But there are so many options out there, how do you figure out what the best Power Wheels for 2 year old kids are? We’re here to help with a list of some of our favorite options as well as an informative guide about these toys in general.

One thing we believe is important to note is that many Power Wheels toys are recommended specifically for children ages 3 and up. That means it’s important to keep your toddlers under close supervision when using these toys, as it is under your discretion whether they are ready for it or not. As you’ll see on our list, many of the toys feature a remote control option, which is recommended when your children are still quite young, as they can learn to “drive” on their own in time.

It’s also worth pointing out that though Power Wheels has sort of become the standard term for these toys, there are other manufacturers who make them that are just as worthy of your attention. Along with the standard Power Wheels brand, we’ve included choices from other makers on our list as well. Without any further delay, here’s our list for the 10 best Power Wheels for 2 year old kids. Please enjoy!

    Best Choice Products Kids 12V Ride On Lamborghini Aventador SV Sports Car Toy w/ Parent Control

If you want your child to ride around not only safely but in complete and total luxurious style, you have got to go with this officially licensed Lamborghini toy. The ride features everything from the scissor style doors to the sleek wheels, and it even features that remote control option that parents will love. There are front and rear LED lights, multiple ways to play music, and a built in horn, meaning kids will absolutely love driving around in this. Though from images it looks like there is seating for two, that is a bit misleading as it is a bit smaller than it appears and only fits one child, which is why it falls a few slots down from the top of our list. However, this is still an excellent ride all things considered.

Key Features:

  • Officially Licensed by Lamborghini

  • Aux Enabled

    Uenjoy 12V Kids Electric Ride On Car Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Motorized Vehicles with Remote Control

If you liked the concept of the Lamborghini ride on car but want something a little different in style, maybe you’d prefer this pink Aventador courtesy of manufacturer Uenjoy. Despite being made by a different company, the two toys are similar in many ways, with plenty of shared features like remote control, music capabilities, and the unique doors. However, with the slight price increase, you do get a few extra features your child may enjoy, like smooth four-wheel suspension, extra sound effects and more. The decision comes to you on whether these extra features are worth the slight price raise.

Key Features:

  • Multiple Ways to Play Music

    Uenjoy Volkswagen Beetle 12V Kids Electric Ride on Car

Next up we have another Uenjoy product, this time a Volkswagen Beetle replica. While the Beetle may not be as popular today as it once was, kids will no doubt love to drive around in one. The car features many of the same safety and entertainment features found in the other toy vehicles on our list, including LED lighting, music options, parental remote control and more. It features four-wheel spring suspension for a better riding experience, and it’s smaller size makes it especially great for younger children. We highly recommend this for fans of the Beetle look.

Key Features:

  • LED Lights

  • Four-Wheel Suspension

  • Multiple Music Options

    Uenjoy 12V Licensed Mercedes-Benz SL500 Kids Ride On Car

As we continue providing options for different car replicas, we now have the Mercedes-Benz SL500 available, and quite impressive it is. Similar in many ways to the Beetle, this model is also quite small and suitable for small children, and of course includes a remote control so adults can command the vehicle until the child is old enough. There are also lockable doors, a seat belt, and smooth spring suspension that will keep this ride going safely and with ease. As with the last few items on our list, deciding between these vehicles mostly comes down to personal preference, namely which vehicle you want to give your child. The Mercedes-Benz brand certainly carries an impressive name and legacy, so it’s a fine choice.

    Power Wheels Ford Mustang Boss 302

The last item on our list is a replica of the Ford Mustang Boss 302, and is great if you want to introduce your child to muscle cars early. This is another genuine Power Wheels product, and that can be reassuring for some people, though we think the alternative brands will often do just as well. This ride includes sound effects, chrome accented tires, and two driving speeds, but it does lack some of the extra features that made the other items on our list stand out. However, if you just can’t picture your child driving around in anything other than a Mustang, we certainly wouldn’t fault you for choosing this toy.

Key Features:

  • 2.5 and 5 MPH Settings

  • Chrome Accents

  • Mustang Styling

  • Interior Cup Holder


Brand:  Power Wheels
Model:  Y8208
Weight:  70.5 lbs.

Best Power Wheels for 2 Year Old Buying Guide

When choosing the right ride on car for your son or daughter, there are a number of considerations you’ll want to keep in mind. The number one important thing to pay attention to when shopping is safety. As we previously mentioned, many Power Wheels toys are recommended for ages 3 and up, so if you are looking for one specifically for your two year old, you should always make sure to watch them closely while they play with the two. Many of the options on our list include remote control capabilities that allow you to control the vehicle instead of your toddler, until they get old enough to drive it around on their own. Additionally, make sure that you choose a trusted brand that will have all the required safety features in place.

Once you’ve taken safety into account, you’ll want to start looking at all the available features on the toy. While some Power Wheels models are a little basic in this department, other toys have loads of extras packed in like working radios, LED lights and more. Many times the price will increase the more features are packed in, but you can find some great deals if you know where to look.

After carefully considering safety and extra features, you’ll next want to narrow your options down by style. Whether your little one likes Jeeps, trucks, or dirt bikes, there’s always going to be an option out there for them. Many of the choices we’ve ranked on our list are meant to recreate or evoke a specific vehicle, such as the Jurassic Park Jeep or a Lamborghini. Nothing sparks the imagination like a realistic vehicle to take your child off into new wondrous adventures.

Final Thoughts

We hope that both our list and guide have been useful in helping you pick out the right toy for your child. These ride on cars are great for so many reasons, and they should keep your little one occupied for years to come. Keep in mind that most if not all of these toy vehicles require some assembly, which can be understandably frustrating for some parents. Watch out for products that offer expert assembly, which can cost a little bit extra but save you plenty of time and frustration.

It’s our belief that these toys will help foster strong development of motor and creative skills in children, and they make for excellent holiday or birthday gifts. Leave us a comment down below if you have any recommendations of your own, and be sure to let us know if you have any questions about these products and we’ll do our best to respond! Remember folks, your children won’t stay this small forever, so try to enjoy it while you can!
