We have compiled the most popular sit-down excavators for children for you in this bestseller list.
Checklist For Sit Down Excavator For Kids
- It is particularly important to observe the manufacturer’s age specification. However, you should not only orientate yourself on this, because every child develops individually differently. For example, some children may still be too small.
- Your child should be able to sit securely and operate the seat excavator by himself. This is usually the case from 2 to 3 years.
- However, sit-down excavators are offered with different requirements and functions and therefore for different age groups.
- Accordingly, extensive models are suitable only from about 5 years. Here, however, it is also important to consider the developmental stage of your child.
- Most sit-on excavators are made of plastic. However, some models are also made of wood or metal.
- Plastic has the advantage that it is very light, so your child can easily carry or pull it. In addition, plastic is easy to clean.
- Wood, on the other hand, is very heavy, but it is stable, robust and therefore much more durable.
- Metal is used especially for models for older children. It has equally higher durability and good quality. However, we recommend this material only for older children, as there is a higher risk of injury and the operation of the excavator is more detailed.
- You can recognize a good and pollutant-free processing by the test seal (e.g. TÜV). Under no circumstances should splinters stick out, as these can lead to injuries.
- There are many different sit-on excavators for children.
- In terms of drive and steering , there is a difference.
- The drive is either by independent pedaling/stemming on the ground or by a motor.
- Variants with a motor are accordingly more expensive and we do notadvise this before 5 years.
- Steering is possible via a steering wheel or steering lever.
- A steering wheel is particularly suitable for children up to 4 years, because it is pleasantly easy to operate and also serves to promote motor skills and coordination.
- Some excavators have light and sound effects, a rotating cabin or other extras that are sure to delight your child. Most sit-on excavators are also real and detailed.
- It is still important to adjust the size of the seat excavator to the height of your child. To do this, you should take into account the manufacturer’s specifications regarding the maximum load.
