Great Gifts for Kids who Love Cars

Kids have been fascinated with toy cars since the first cars were used in the 1780s. Toy cars were carved from wood and became the play toys of rich kids. Over the course of time, the toys changed from wood to tin to cast iron to sheet metal to the plastic cars of today. It seems that some kids were born to love cars. If you have a child in your life who loves cars, there are some great gift options available to you.


With the introduction of the movie, “Cars,” kids have been fascinated with Lightning McQueen and his friends. Imagine the delight of your little Disney Pixar Cars lover if he could fall asleep surrounded by his favorite character with a Disney 4-piece Toddler Bedding Set. It includes a sheet set, pillow case and comforter. A Lightning McQueen Peel and Stick Giant Wall Decal and nightlight will complete the room of his dreams.

Car hauler

The Rev ‘n’ Go Car Hauler is a great toy. This is a 2-in-1 toy. First, up to 4 cars can be stored in this car hauler. They can be hauled around until you find the perfect place for a stunt show. The excitement begins as the top is unfolded to create a stunt ramp. The cars are revved up and sent down the ramp where they crash into the barrels that come with the set.

Race track

Nascar gains in popularity every year. Car lovers will love having their own car race on the Nascar Race Track. The Full Throttle 500 Nascar Race Car Speedway allows two cars to complete their laps as they twist and turn through the race track. The set includes a race counter, and cars with traction magnets-Office Depot #14 and Army #39. 

Hot Wheels

Almost every car-lover begins his car life on his hands and knees, pushing cars around the floor making engine sounds. Whether your child is just getting started, or you want to add to an existing set, the Hot Wheels 50-car Set has, as the name implies, 50 different cars. The cars are a combination of classic and new cars. Each car is individually wrapped, so you can dole them out a few at a time or give your child a great set all at once.

Remote control 

The day comes when crawling around on the floor isn’t as fun as it used to be, but the love of cars remains. Consider a remote control car. The cars come in many varieties for many different age groups. New Bright offers a cool radio-controlled black Chevy Corvette. The scale is 1:10. It features a game grip style joystick transmitter. The car moves forward and backward as well as left and right. This sleek sports car requires 5 AA batteries to operate. Recommended for ages 6 and older, the car comes with an owner’s manual and operating instructions.

No one knows your child better than you do. Check over the list and choose the best possible gift for the car-lover in your life.
