Have you decided to give your child an electric quad? You will inevitably find a model made for him at Peg Perego. This Italian brand is a leader in the world of games and toys for children. She is also one of the pioneers in the manufacture of motorized toys. Known for its very good value for money, Peg Perego offers a very varied catalog of electric quad bikes for children.
How to choose quad bikes at Peg Perego
To make your choice among the many models of the brand, it is important to take into account certain criteria. First, your child’s age will be decisive. Depending on this, you will not be able to buy any model: indeed some quads intended for older children will be dangerous if your child is very small. However, Peg Perego offers quads suitable for all ages, from one year old. The recommended age is always indicated on the toy box.
Then look at the power of the toy. The 6V models are suitable for the little ones, who are not yet comfortable: the speed is limited between 2 and 5 km / h, depending on the model. Quads suitable for children between 12 and 18 months are limited to 2 km / h. As for the 12V models, they are better suited to children from two years old, who have a little more balance or are used to driving motorized toys. Depending on the model, the maximum speed is between 3 and 7 km / h. From 4 to 6 years old, depending on your child’s ease, you can opt for more powerful 24 or 36V models.
The robustness of the toy is also an important point. Learn about the materials it is made of, this will give you an idea of its resistance (knowing that a more resistant toy also lasts longer). Also, look at the maximum weight supported by the quad, often listed on the box, and choose a model that matches your child’s weight (with a little margin, because he grows quickly!). Another technical characteristic to consider is the battery life: for this point, the opinions of other parents will be invaluable to you.
Next, think about your child’s safety. Some models include options such as a speed limiter, an automatic vehicle stop system in the event of a fall, or a remote control allowing parents to stop the vehicle from a distance. Don’t forget to invest in a helmet for your child as well.
Finally, we must also take into account the design of the quad. Whether your child likes sports racing, cartoons, blue or red … his quad must match his tastes!
The best children’s quads Peg Perego
Here are two examples of electric quads that you can find at Peg Perego:
- The T-Rex quad: this 12V electric quad has two speed levels, up to 3.4 and 7 km / h. It is suitable for children from 3 to 8 years old. Its sporty design and its ability to reverse (up to 3.4 km) will give your child the impression of driving a real quad! The Peg Perego T-Rex quad is quite stable and secure on sandy and stony terrain. Its only weak points are a tendency to slip when the ground is wet (the wheels are plastic) and a battery that does not last long.
- The Peg Perego Polaris Outlaw quad is a very faithful reproduction of the real Polaris Outlaw, suitable for children from three years old. Like the T-Rex, it is a 12V quad with two speed levels with a maximum of 7.4 km / h. Parents have the option of limiting the speed during the first outings. This electric quad has very good battery life and is also very durable (your child will be able to ride on gravel or wet grass without danger). Parents who bought this model say they are very satisfied, as do the opinions on Peg Perego and note very few weak points apart from tedious assembly and a slight loss of grip when it rains.
You now have all the cards in hand to choose the quad that will make your little one proud!
