Kids of all ages seem to love the police so it’s no surprise that they will also love police toys. There is a whole range of toys on the market which meets the description so it can take some time to figure out which ones are worth the price.
With two boys of my own, we’ve made out way through countless toys over the year so below I have created the ultimate list of the best police toys for all ages.
The list is divided by age (toddlers and school-age) so you can easily pick an appropriate toy for your little one, but remember that these ages are just a guide. Depending on how your child is developing, they may be ready for a 4-year-old toy at age 2 or they may not be ready until 5.
Police Toys for 2+ years:
Best Police TV Show Toy: Any Paw Patrol Chas Pup Toy
Paw Patrol is a wildly popular kids’ tv show with a huge line of toys to choose from.
While all the characters have professions that help keep the world safe, Chas Pup is the police officer of Paw Patrol. So if you are looking for a police toy, which is also a part of Paw Patrol, purchasing anything Chas related is a good start.
The Paw Patrol vehicles are some of the best toys to get in this range but make sure to get the deluxe or transforming cars for the most fun!
Best Luxury Police Toy: COSTZON Ride On Car
If you want to go all out and give your kids the police toy of their dreams, you can’t get much better than a ride on police car!
The car has two options so parents can control it by remote control, or your child can control it themselves using the steering wheel.
With flashing lights, sirens, headlights, and suspension, your child will really feel as if they are chasing a bad guy in this car.
Note that the car is only suitable for one child at a time and has a weigh limit of 66 lbs.
Most Versatile Police Toy: Dress Up Costume
Whether your kid has a whole host of police toys or they’re just getting started in the world of the force, this dress-up set is a great way for them to really get into character.
With 10 pieces, kids can play pretend with a hat, gun, whistle, baton, handcuffs, badges, walkie-talkie, and a torch, everything you need to catch a (pretend) bad guy.
Another great thing about this kit is that it can fit children of many ages so they won’t grow out of it immediately and can have years of fun.
Best Add-On Toy: Police Bike Light
Upgrade your kid’s bike to make it a police bike!
This flashing light attaches to the handlebars and allows your child to play police sounds, sirens, and blast LED lights all from their bike.
The waterproof bike light attaches with a simple ring and contains batteries, controlled by a easy to use fixed remote.
Best Budget Police Toy: Police Pop Up Tent
This pop-up police car tent is perfect if you are looking for a budget-friendly toy that is both multifunctional and doesn’t take up too much space when stored.
The police tent has two sections with a clear visor and zipped doors so your kids can play in the driver’s seat, as well as a larger back section to store the “bad guys”. There’s even a button that plays siren sounds to really enhance the game.
Setting up the tent is super easy as it simply pops into place. It also collapses fairly easily so it can be stored in a much smaller space when not in use.
