• PEDAL CARS: THE IMPORTANCE OF PLAY FOR CHILDREN
  • This entry was posted in Toys on August 01, 2017

  • At KETTLER, we want kids to be healthy, safe and have fun at the same time. Our pedal cars are one way to do that. For 50 years, KETTLER has been making pedal cars. Driving them is a great way for children ages four to nine to burn off energy – and calories. As a parent, there are many reasons to buy KETTLER pedal cars for your children. The most important is for them to learn that healthy play can be fun.

     

    Fun

    We have a wide variety of pedal cars, including pedal tractors, the KETTCAR KABRIO and mini go-carts. Children can ride by themselves, or have a pedal car race against their friends or brothers and sisters. Since these kids' toys are fun, trendy and unique, children want to ride, play and exercise.

     

    Exercise

    Of course, for kids to be healthy, they need exercise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 32 percent of all US children from birth to 19 years old are overweight or obese. While this number is up only slightly from 2007 to 2008, it is still high. Keep in mind that children with a body mass index at or above 30 are considered obese. An alarming 17 percent of all children in the US are in this group. When children exercise regularly, they lower their risks to be overweight. They often don't realize that when they play, it's a form of exercise; they just know it's fun.

     

    Safety

    We strive to provide kids' toys that are made with quality materials and designed with safety in mind. Our KETTCAR pedal cars are made on a carbon steel frame with a fully enclosed chain for safety. Our mini go-carts have a dual wheel handbrake control and an adjustable seat for increased safety, comfort and confidence.

     

    Join KETTLER as we strive to help children stay healthy, safe and fun. Try one of our pedal cars, and encourage your children to ride. Help them learn how much fun exercise can be.
