If you’ve got a young son or daughter, a Power Wheels ride-on toy can be an excellent gift. It works great indoors and outdoors, offering countless hours of fun over the course of years. However, if you feel that your child is a little too young to be piloting the toy themselves, there are some truly awesome remote control Power Wheels options available for you as well.

Toys that are part of the standard Power Wheels brand don’t include a remote control, so you’ll have to move into some of the other manufacturers that make these incredible toys. In this guide, we’ve included a list comprised of 10 of our favorite remote control ride-on cars. While they aren’t necessarily part of the Power Wheels brand, that term has become shorthand for ride-on vehicles as a whole. That is why you’ll see us referring to these toys as “Power Wheels” toys even if they may be made by a different company.

Remote Control Power Wheels
While many Power Wheels models are made with older children in mind, there are quite a few options out there that are great for toddlers. Look for a model with a remote control and you can get them a head start before they take control themselves eventually!

After checking out our list of the best options out there on the market, you’ll find our buying guide. In it is a ton of useful information on these toys, such as how to properly take care of them, what to look for while shopping and more. We hope that you find what you’re looking for, and before too long your son or daughter will have a ride-on car that they love!

This gift will allow them to experience adventure together, safely and securely. It features four-wheel suspension, functioning LED headlights and ways for your kids to take their music on the go with them. It’s a durable toy that should last you for years. Get one today!

The comfortable seat also includes a safety belt that will ensure your child is safely secured inside the vehicle. This sleek red car has a realistic retro look that we think kids are sure to love.

    Best Choice Products 6V Kids Ride On SUV

Next up, we have another model from Best Choice Products. This 6V SUV is available at a really attractive price, especially for an option with remote control. While this doesn’t quite match up to the style of some of our higher-placed picks, if you’re looking for something cheap yet effective, this is probably your safest bet. Even at its exciting price point, it offers some truly excellent features like an AUX port, working LED headlights and multiple speed settings to choose from. The maximum weight capacity is 45 lbs., however, which is definitely something worth noting. This option is great for younger kids, but once they reach that weight capacity it will be time to upgrade.

Key Features:

    JOYMOR Kids 6V Ride-On Truck with Remote Control

This next toy is similar to our last SUV from Best Choice, but offers a slightly different take and is made by a different manufacturer. It’s a one-seat 6V SUV, and is another very affordable remote control Power Wheels toy. It can reach a speed of up to 2.5 MPH, but also offers other slower speed settings for your child. The vehicle can support up to 44 lbs., and it sports LED headlights and a windshield for a realistic look. While the design of this one won’t win any awards, it will certainly get the job done safely and reliably.

Key Features:

    TOBBI 6V Kids Ride On Racing Car

At number seven, we’ve got a toy from TOBBI that can currently be found for just under $100 and offers some truly unique features that set it apart. The toy includes a real key used to start the vehicle, allowing your child to become more immersed. Additionally, it includes a digital battery life tracker, making it easy to know when it’s time to get the toy charged back up. While the design is fairly basic, it’s hard to argue with what you are getting for the price. This toy doesn’t have as many reviews or ratings as its competitors, which suggests it is newer on the market. However, the ratings it does have are excellent, and we think this remote control Power Wheels toy will serve you well.

Key Features:

  • MP3 Capabilities and LED Headlights

  • Battery Level Display Screen

The thing we love about Best Choice is all the extra features that are included, and you’ll find them all here. The vehicle has AUX music capabilities, lockable doors, an adjustable seat belt and more. The mesh net windshield brings an added layer of realism to the toy, while the traction tires help the vehicle move a little better on terrain other than concrete.

    Lil' Rider Classic Ride On Car

If you’re looking for a classic look but have yet to see something that fits your needs, check out this next option from Lil’ Rider. This light tan classic sports car offers remote control capabilities, on and off headlights, and can hold up to 70 lbs. of weight. There are sound effects that will keep your child entertained and engaged, as well as everything needed to keep them safe. One of the only downsides to this toy is that the plastic seat appears like it could be quite uncomfortable over stretches of time. However, most kids will only play with these toys for a half an hour, maybe an hour at most before the battery runs out, so this may not be too big of an issue for you.

Key Features:

  • Awesome Retro Design

  • Working Headlights and Sound Effects

  • Easy to Clean

  • Recommended for Ages 2-5


Brand:  Lil' Rider
Model:  B013C1IERY

Additionally, the speed settings can be adjust to either 1.8 or 3 MPH. The vehicle can carry up to 60 lbs. of weight, and it features a safety belt and safety-locking doors. This is yet another great remote control Power Wheels model to pick up for your family.

Remote Control Power Wheels Buying Guide

Were you able to find the right item on our list for your child? We hope so! Next up we have our buying guide. Here you will find plenty of helpful information, such as details on the developmental benefits of Power Wheels, how to properly set up and maintain the battery, and more. Once you’ve made your way through this guide, you’ll have some important knowledge that’ll help when you get the toy.

Factors of Focus: What to Look For While Shopping

A high-quality Power Wheels toy is going to have a few important things. First and foremost, safety. Before you buy, make sure to check and see that the toy has all the safety features that are important to you and your family. At the very least, you want to ensure that the product passes all the key safety tests and qualifications to be sold in your state. On top of that, you may want to spring for features like safety belts, four-wheel suspension or a parental remote control, which our list was based around.

After considering safety features, we think the construction quality and longevity of the toy should come into play. Take a look at reviews from different sources around the internet to find out what you can about a product. You’ll learn about the strength of the plastic, how well the parts work, and how reliable the battery is. This information can really help you decide if a given option meets your expectations.

Finally, we think that style and design should factor into your decision. Think about what your son or daughter likes, and try to cater the toy to them. There are tons of options available out there, and we feel very confident that there’s something for everyone.

If you get a model with a remote control, there will be no need for you to push the vehicle manually! Instead, you can choose the right speed setting and help your child have an amazing time.

Setup and Maintenance for Power Wheels Batteries

The battery is one of the most tricky aspects of owning and operating a Power Wheels toy. These batteries are known not to last very long, but that can be prevented with proper setup and maintenance. When you first purchase one of these toys, the battery needs to be charged up a specific way before you operate it. Read the owner’s manual closely, especially the section about the battery. It should tell you exactly how long you should keep it on the charger for that first time. Additionally, you’ll find information on how long you should keep it on the charger for all the subsequent charges.

One more important maintenance point to note is how to take care of the battery while the toy is being stored. Whether it’s due to cold weather, or any other reason, it’s likely the toy will end up being shelved for a few months at some point. It’s important to charge up the battery to full before you leave it on the shelf for a few months, otherwise it may not be able to get a charge going afterwards. It’s also not a bad idea to plug it in from time to time for a few hours, just to make sure it’s still getting a charge.

Benefits to Childhood Development

One often overlooked element of these toys are the benefits to the development of a child. In addition to the more surface-level (but still important) benefits to imagination and outdoor activity, these Power Wheels vehicles can also help with the development of motor skills. It’s important that young kids learn how movement and momentum work, and these toys are a great way to teach that basic skill.

Along with that, these toys can help them prepare for moving on to a bicycle and other vehicles down the line. If you get your child comfortable on a safe set of wheels from a young age, we believe those safety instincts can carry on for the rest of their life.

Final Thoughts

Well, there you have it. We shared some of our favorite Power Wheels models featuring parental remote control, as well as some further information on these toys. We hope that you were able to find a model that fits your family’s needs! If you picked up a model and have thoughts to share, let us know down in the comments!
