Who says grown-ups have to be the only ones to enjoy the thrills of driving or riding?
Let’s face it, 18 years is a long time to wait to get behind a wheel. Which would explain why kids act up sometimes; after all, there’s only so much they can do from the passenger seat or stuck in a child-seat in the back and far from the action. Satisfy your little one’s inner petrolhead with these miniature versions of your favourite cars and bikes, each lovingly detailed to look – not feel, unfortunately – like their bigger counterparts.
VW BEETLE GSR BOBBY CAR
This groovy toy is ideal for younger children who think being seen in a walker is too embarrassing. Best of all, it’s suitable for boys and girls, unlike the original car. Volkswagen Centre Singapore +65 6474 8288
AUDI JUNIOR QUATTRO LEGENDS BOBBY CAR

JEEP JUNIOR PEDAL GO-CART
The only cleanup your kids will be doing after a day out with this rugged off-roader is the mud from their wide, happy grins. The dirtier it is (the car, not your kids), the cooler it’ll look. www.bergtoys.com
DUCATI GP 12V ELECTRIC BIKE
For future rebels who think road rash equals to street cred, this faithful replica of Ducati’s MotoGP machine will ensure hours of knee down action. Although in this case, knee down probably means he’s crashed. Baby Hyperstore +65 6844 1123
