Pedal cars are back! With increasing screen time for kids, parents are on the look out for newer options to keep kids playing outside and away from the screen. And pedal cars are the new toys of the season.
Pedal cars require a child to use his legs to move the car and this helps in building his muscles and improves co-ordination skills. These cars come as exact replicas of the original except with a pedal. So, a child feels like he is actually driving a car like his daddy or mommy. They are also available in various types like a pick-up truck, SUVs and MUVs.
