6V Baby Toy Car

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I have a 6V toy car which my 3 year old son drives. I wanted to add a little something to the car itself.
I wanted to add an indicator system where he can press a button on a remote (the motherboard of the remote I can place into a real-looking car key) and the indicators (2 LEDs) can turn on and start flashing.

I basically need to learn how to create a circuit with a battery, 2 LEDs and wireless switch (connected to a remote). I also would need to know what to buy and how to bring it all together.

I do not have great knowledge about anything complicated so if it could be kept simple, that would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance

Not that you asked, but I advise against it.
You are talking about adding parts to a child's toy that could break off and become a choking hazard.

Well, the child is 3 years old, so hopefully choking hazards are less of an issue... :smile:

Welcome to the PF.

I started to google RF Remote Control.... and Google suggested RF Remote Control Light Switch. One of the Google Ads that popped up on the right side of my display was this:

Looks pretty close to what you want to do. :smile:

The link seems fabulous. Thank you very much Berkeman.

He is 3 but also almost 4 and he won't be using it without me. In the worst case scenario, he will be safe throughout. Thank you for the share in concern.
