    Best Mini Cars for Kids
    There have been mini cars for kids for as long as there have been cars on the road. Early toy makers realized that kids like to imitate grownups and quickly saw that making mini cars for kids was a good idea. And they were right, because they are just as popular today as ever. Kids that are older than the recommended age can ride them, as long as they do not go over the recommended weight limit.
