Cars For Kids – Edoardo Massucci – Rizzoli

Pedal cars are miniature cars or vehicles that are powered by the rider’s pedaling motion, typically designed for children. They are often made to resemble real cars or other vehicles, such as airplanes, trains, or fire trucks. Pedal cars were first introduced in the early 20th century and became popular toys for children, particularly in the 1930s and 1940s.

Pedal cars are still produced today, and some enthusiasts collect and restore vintage models. They can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, wood, and plastic, and can range in complexity from simple designs to highly detailed and realistic models.

This is a book that focuses on the history and design of pedal cars for children.
