Speedcar racer ride-on toyI’ve found the degree to which children love ride-on toys seems to be in inverse proportion to how ugly they look in your living room. Cute sleek and modern? Eh. Big, shiny and plastic? Home run! But now there’s one that my kids will love just as much as I’d love looking at it.

The Metal Speedcar Racer
is one stunner of a ride-on toy. This 1930’s era replica is
low-maintenance, it doesn’t guzzle gas, and it’s a snap to parallel
park. Plus there’s no passenger seat, meaning your kid will never get
stuck with carpool duty.

It’s all the more awesome considering the racer is now on sale for half
off at Design Within Reach. I’m thinking it would make quite the
impressive first birthday present or baby shower gift, and looks
adorable in the kid’s room long after their knees are up to their ears
when they try and sit on it. –Liz
