There is nothing more fun than to cruise around the neighborhood in a brand new shiny Jeep!!! That goes for kids too! When the weather is nice and the kids need to be outside and not indoors with constant video gaming or TV watching, the Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler is the way to go!! It will keep them entertained for hours and get them out of the house to play.
Why children need outdoor play
There are many benefits to being outdoors for all of us and children are no exception. Our bodies require the sun light in order to make vitamin D. Vitamin D plays a huge role from bone development to the immune system. Children especially need this as they are in the process of growing.
Exercise is another reason our kids should go outdoors. When your child goes outdoors, it is more likely that he will run and play. It is good for him or her to get at least an hour of outdoor activity. Nothing beats being outside with the sunshine and fresh air along with running, playing and seeing friends.
Being outdoors and seeing friends encourages socialization skills that we all need as adults. When children play outside and meet with friends, it allows them to be a part of a group and teaches them to share and how to cooperate with others.
Outdoor play toys
Getting your kids to play outside can sometimes be a challenge. But if you keep encouraging them, it will be a lot easier. I know that now-a-days, most kids have electronic games and prefer to stay indoors to play them. There is nothing wrong with them playing those types of games, but they need to have a time limit on them.
One of the ways you can get your child’s interest up in going outside is to have a toy that is just calling his or her name…..the Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler!
What’s so great about the Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler?
Well, first of all I want to say that this is a perfect little “ride on” toy for your 3 to 7-year-old child. Let me explain.
First of all, it is a 2 seater so your child can ride with a friend. Second, it has forward up to 5 mph (8 km/h) and reverse up to 2.5 mph (4 km/h), and drives like a “real” Jeep.
This Jeep has doors that open and close.
The Jeep is easy to operate and kids learn very quickly how to drive it!
The dashboard has a horn and a radio.
Oh my goodness, I could go on and on! I have to tell you that when my two oldest boys were little, they had one of these. It was the best couple hundred dollars I ever spent!! They rode together on this for hours and had so much fun!
I am just so happy to see that these little Jeeps are still being made!!
So, more about the Jeep. It has wheels that can go either on pavement or the grass. This little Jeep will hold 130 pounds, so if you weigh that or under, you can take this little gem out for a spin when your little guy or gal is sleeping!! HaHa. I used to do it all the time. I am not sure who had more fun with this, me or them!!!
This little Jeep will have to be assembled when it arrives, but putting this together is not difficult. Definitely pay attention to the instructions and you should not have any problems.
Word of caution: If this is being purchased as a gift, do not assemble it before giving it unless you have a truck and a way to transport it. It is good size. The dimensions are: 47 x 30.5 x 33 inches.
The Jeep comes with a 12V battery and needs to be charged for 18 hours right out of the box. If you do that, this battery will work very well and can last for around 4 hours at a time. Make sure, however, that you do not “overcharge” it or you could ruin the battery.
When your child is first learning how to drive this little jeep, there is a lock-out option feature that allows you to “cap” what speed your child can go. As he or she gets better at driving this, you can re-adjust to let your child go faster. It will go up to 5 miles per hour in forward and 2.5 miles per hour in reverse.
A style for everyone
I am so pleased to say that this little Jeep comes in Disney Princess, Hot Wheels Blue, Toy Story 4, Barbie, and Red. I will show them below and I have attached the link for you to purchase.
Ooops, I almost forgot. There is one for Frozen fans too!
Summing it up
All in all, this Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler is one of the best gifts you can get your child for outdoor play and you can let them drive ahead of you on long walks in the neighborhood. You and your child are sure to get compliments on this and you will all enjoy being outside!!!
