Power Wheels from Fort Wayne.

Power Wheels, the world's leading producer of battery-powered ride-on vehicles, celebrated its 30th anniversary by adding to its product line. It now offers 15 different models for children from preschool age through 7 years old. Sales of battery-powered ride-on vehicle sales now exceed tricycle and Big Wheel sales combined.

The toy cars are realistic versions of America's classics, such as the jeep and Corvette. Made with either 12-volt or 6-volt electrical systems, all models are injection-molded out of prime-grade plastic and have heavy-duty steel tubing frames, axles and bumpers. Some of the simulated "extras" include instrument panels, headlights, CB radios and car phones, just like those in real cars. These toy cars vary in length from 37 to 51 inches and travel from 2.5 to 5 mph, have forward and reverse gears, and are equipped with power brakes.
