Buying Guide: The Best Pedal Go-Karts for Kids

Pedal Go-Karts Are the Best Cars for Kids

Pedal go-karts are a great way to start your kids on some light and fun workouts or help them grasp the basics of driving at an early age. If they love cars and watching car races, you can only imagine how exhilarated they’ll be when you buy them their first go-kart.

There are any number of types of go-karts: hoverboard go-karts, rechargeable batteries go-karts, diesel-engine go-karts, pedal go-karts, and the list goes on and on. For this article we are focusing on the pedal-powered go-karts.

Pedal go-karts are the best starter cars for kids. They, too, come in different types, models, and prices. Finding the perfect one requires considerable research and comparisons. Given their large number, this can take forever. But, don’t worry, we’ve already done the hard work for you. Here’s a detailed buying guide on choosing the perfect pedal go-kart for your kid.

Pedal go-karts are generally considered to be for kids between two to ten years of age. So, what makes them ideal for children in this age range?

  • They are slower than other go-karts: These cars allow your children to learn the basics of driving in a favorable environment. Their slower speed reduces the chances of crashes, falls and injuries.
  • They are lower to the ground: This reduce tipping and reduces the chances of severe injury.
  • Lightweight: Pedal go-karts are generally lighter than other go-karts. So you can easily transport them to and from wherever your kids will be riding.
  • They are more affordable: The average cost of regular go-karts is approximately $2500; this can rise to $10,000 depending on the type you want. Pedal go-karts, on the other hand, can be purchased for as little as $100, less on sale, making them the less expensive option. Also, no fuel means more eco-friendly. If you buy a sturdy go-kart, it can serve your family for years with minimal maintenance.

Types of Pedal Go-Karts

There are two broad categories of pedal go-karts; go-karts for kids and go-karts for adults. Our focus today is on pedal go-karts for kids. These too come in different styles and sizes, which we can generally put in two groups:

Pedal Go-Karts for Kids Aged 2-5

These karts are the ultimate starter pack. They are very close to the ground, have slower speeds, and include more safety features. Most of them are three or four-wheeled ride-on toys and feature thicker tires for better stability and balance. Aosom recommends these go-karts to parents keen on nurturing their kids’ motor development skills before they reach the school-going age.

Pedal Go-karts for Children Aged 5-10 Years

Once your kid has acquired some skills and enough confidence, you can introduce them to these go-karts. They are slightly raised, accelerate faster, and often come with adjustable seats and additional features like hand brakes and enhanced bumpers.
