Peg Perego Expands Its Line of Children’s Ride-on Vehicles
The sleek, 6-volt Polaris Sportsman 500 by Peg Perego (ToyDirectory), built for children ages two and up with a weight capacity of 65lbs., looks like a real ATV. It sports a simulated engine, handlebars with a simulated headlight and instrument panel, front and rear luggage racks with a fabric zippered bag and a rechargeable battery. A live rear axle drives both wheels so this ATV can operate easily on grass or hard surfaces. The ATV’s have a completely enclosed body so that batteries, wiring and switches are out of sight. It also features special hood hinges to prevent pinched fingers and automatic brakes to ensure safe stopping.
