Wheeled toys have long been a specialism of the Wilton Bradley team, which has many years of experience in developing premium products. Now in more than 20 countries around the World, itâ€™s established as a serious and credible contender in the wheeled toy market.
Wilton Bradley has been creating a real buzz around its new Xootz Ride-On toy range, and is working with the best factories to create officially licensed products that are exclusive to the company in the UK, working closely with its customers to provide them with a competitive advantage.
Since 2014, Xootzâ€™ mission has been to encourage kids to get out exploring and spend less time cooped up indoors – and to do it in style! Xootz has developed a multi-award-winning range of ride-ons to offer hours of thrills for kids.
For example, kids can get stylish with the Xootz BMW Z4 Roadster Electric Ride-On.
The officially licensed twin-seat BMW is a scale replica of the sporty Z4 Roadster and it makes a real statement. It features all the details of the full-scale powerhouse including the remodelled classic kidney grille, sculptured bonnet and working front lights.
Suitable for children aged three to six, it has two opening doors and two adjustable seats with seatbelts, meaning you can have two children in the ride-on at the same time. The BMW ride-on also includes a tinted windscreen, a battery indicator, built-in music system with AUX input, and suspension on the front wheels to make light work of carpets, garden paths or smooth terrain.
Reaching comfortable speeds of up to 3.6km/h, and with a slow start function for younger drivers, it is the ultimate driving machine for little ones to practise driving. It can be driven manually using the foot pedal and has a three-speed gearbox with a reverse mode. For less experienced drivers, it includes a remote control for parents to use.
For practical transportation, the Xootz BMW Z4 Roadster Electric Ride-On includes a carry handle that slides out under the front and two training wheels at the rear.
The Xootz Bumper Car Electric Ride-On, meanwhile, allows little ones to spin a full 360 degrees with its joystick or remote controls.â€‹ With its simplified joystick controls they can zoom around at speeds of up to 0.75mphâ€‹
There is no assembly required. Simply connect the battery wire and itâ€™s ready to goâ€¦ straight out of the boxâ€‹. Suitable for children aged three and over.
