Toy ATVs for children under 10 come in various models, speeds, and designs, with a weight capacity of 100-160 pounds. Most are battery-powered and require adult assembly, with prices ranging from $40-$200. Helmets are recommended, and fuel-powered models are not suitable for children.

There are several types of children’s toy ATVs. Basic models generally have a maximum weight capacity of 100 to 160 pounds (45 to 73 kg), so they’re typically targeted at children under the age of 10. These toy vehicles are aesthetically designed to replicate real sport ATVs. There are a handful of makes and models to consider when shopping for an ATV for kids, spanning different price ranges, speeds, and designs.

Some toy ATVs operate at top speeds of three to seven miles per hour (five to 11 km per hour) and typically require a 12-volt battery that can be charged at any power outlet or wall outlet. Less powerful models run on 6-volt and 9-volt batteries and run at a speed of three to five mph (five to eight km per hour). Adult assembly is required at time of purchase and takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Almost all models have four wheels, unlike some adult ATVs, which have three wheels.

Most of the best-selling models are battery-powered and can seat one child. There are color options ranging from girl to boy to neutral. These types of ATVs are known as “kids off-road vehicles” intended to mimic a real ATV. The most popular toy ATVs cost between $150 and $200 US dollars.

Toy ATVs can be purchased at most major online retailers. There are also a handful of websites that specialize in ATVs for kids. Auction websites are a great way to save money on a used model. Buying from the internet will offer a plethora of toy ATV choices, but due to the size and weight, the high shipping costs often outweigh the positives of an online purchase.

If the budget for purchasing a toy ATV is tight, there are plenty of cheaper options for parents to consider. Some inexpensive toy ATV models can be had for $40 to $60 USD. These models usually only run on a 6-volt battery and therefore run at slower speeds than some of the higher-end models. Additional battery packs can be purchased for approximately $15 USD. It is typical to charge the battery overnight. Youth helmets should be purchased with a toy ATV, especially for models that run at higher speeds.

Sometimes, dealers include a helmet with the purchase of a toy ATV. For children there are also helmets that imitate the real dirt-bike versions. ATV models that run on fuel rather than batteries are usually not considered toy ATVs and should not be ridden by children.
