This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in March of 2019. It's common for children to want to do whatever their parents are doing, but when it comes to cutting the grass, helping out with the real thing is probably a little too dangerous. With one of these toy lawn mowers, however, your kids can play pretend in safety, whether in the yard or your living room. Most models even have moving parts and exciting sounds to make them more engaging and authentic. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best lawn mower for kids on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 26, 2019:

When it comes to toy mowers, it's tough to beat the Little Tikes Gas 'n Go, for several reasons. For one thing, the popping beads are attention-grabbing, and for another, it's sized well and is relatively realistic. It does have one drawback, however: it doesn't perform well in thick grass. This problem is actually common to most models, as they're designed with stability in mind, which means low wheels. If you'd like something that offers rugged performance over varied terrain, the Peg Perego John Deere Ground Force is perhaps the better choice, although it's certainly not inexpensive. But it does offer quite a bit of functionality for the cost, including a reverse option and a lockout that makes the top speed inaccessible, if need be. Finally, we selected a bubble mower option from Fisher-Price. It's cute but can spill, so this one is best for the patient parent.
