Toy cars are often a child’s first exposure to the automotive world, these stimulate a child’s dream about their fantasy ride and upon seeing one, every adult looks back at their first ride. Some of these toy cars today have become collector’s items with clubs around the country, books and magazine, many even travel in museum exhibits or belong to permanent collections that feature antique retro cars.
It’s obvious that BMW thinks its never too early to foster adoration for these types of toys and for their brand. Even the tiniest drivers can set pulses racing in the playground with the models that range from the more classic type such as the BMW 328 roadster or for that young sports and racing lover, there are the BMW M3 GT2 and M6 Convertible. The 328 roadster is timeless and comes with its chrome plated radiator grill and even has realistic wheel rims. The M6 single-seater convertible is sporty and finished off with authentic BMW emblems, the M6 also has rubber wheels, adjustable seat and functional horn. The models are suitable for ages 3 to 5 and feature an easy-go pedal-and-rod-drive with an adjustable seat position. Certain battery powered versions offer a maximum speed of 2.5 mph, forward as well as reverse gears, and 1.5 hour driving without being recharged. All of the cars abide with consumer safety specifications and range in price from $226 to $391 depending on the model.
To stop or to go? is the question and with these examples it seems the love for the open-air motoring starts early. Continue a tradition that kids, parents and grandparents have enjoyed for generations not only with pedal cars but with the ultimate driving machine from BMW.
