Every child loves a ride-on toy. And this stunning, vintage-style 'Bianchi' pedal car, designed in France by Baghera and available in the UK for £185 from PedalPlay is one of the smartest we have seen. With its sturdy metal body painted in simple and striking red and white, soft ride rubber tyres, adjustable seat and pedal positions and beautiful wooden steering wheel, it is proof that design is as much about style and aesthetics as practicality. We're loving the added details such as the cherry red seat, the bonnet stripes and front grill, all of them typical of the 1930s Bugatti racing car upon which this scaled-down toy version has been based. The car measures 55 x 115cm and is the ideal size for ages 2-6 years. And although they'll eventually outgrow it, it's definitely one to keep hold of - for this is one of those very special heirloom toys to be treasured forever.
