Once you have grasped how to operate the car, you can then teach your kids how to use it. Be very patient and vigilant and go through it step by step slowly. Think of it as teaching them how to ride a bike. Safety should be the number one priority. Kids can pick up on things quite quickly so it shouldn’t take too long especially as they will be so excited to drive it by themselves.

Maintain all car parts   

To have the ride-on toy in great condition, you must take care of all the initial parts separately.

  • – Battery   

The battery is the heart of the electric car, if your battery is dead or becomes damaged then you can’t drive it. Follow the instructions manual for recommendations on how to look after the battery. Never overcharge the battery as this can cause battery damage which is very common. If the battery needs replacing always make sure it is compatible with your car.

  • – Take care of the body   

Always clean the car after every use. Wipe the car with a damp cloth daily and a more thorough clean once in a while to maintain it. Always let your kids know not to hit anything as this could result in scratches on the vehicle’s body paint. Try to avoid putting stickers on it also as this could remove or cause damage to the paint. When storing away, cover the car with a cloth or canvas sheet.

  • – Wheels   

Like every vehicle, the wheels are the first part to become damaged. Many of the electric ride-on toys have specific surfaces that you can drive on so it is important to make note of this. Check if there is any wear on tyres. Keep the rims clean from soil or dirt. Check regularly that the wheels are balanced for safety and the balance of the car.

Store the car in an appropriate storage area   

Always find a specific sized space in your home to store the electric car when the kids are not playing with it. A garage, basement, or even your kid’s room would be suitable for storing the toy away. Keeping the toy stored inside instead of outside will prevent it from becoming damaged and also from the weather.
