We are in full holiday mode at Baby Gizmo and we have another great gift idea for you today. If you know a toddler who loves to be outside, playing with trucks, and is great at role-playing, we have the perfect gift for you to get! The new 2-in-1 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor by Step2 is a ride-on truck for toddlers 1 1/2 years and up that features rugged wheels with 360 degree turning, steering wheel with honking horn and front grille with working lights. Our toddler tester’s favorite features are the truck bed storage for toys and the two working doors with latches.
As parents, our favorite feature is that it’s a 2-in-1 toy that transforms from a push buggy with the removable parent push handle to a kid powered riding toy.
It starts out with a parent (or adult!) pushing the child in the truck! I love that there is a floorboard to keep the child’s feet from dragging on the ground!
When the child is old enough to maneuver the truck manually on their own, just remove the parent handle and floorboard and it becomes the coolest truck in the neighborhood.
Parents can even help them along at the beginning! Or in our case, to help them go a little faster for even more fun!
Remember this is NOT a motorized vehicle. The child uses their feet Flintstone-style to push themselves along making it very safe for the wee ones! Make sure you watch our video review above for all the details and an up close and personal look at this new ride-on!
