Pedal cars for kids first appeared in the late 1880s, when Karl Benz introduced his three-wheel Patent Motorwagen for adults. By the early 1900s, pedal cars were widespread, especially in the United States, England, France, and Australia. Later on, they became really popular in the Soviet Union.

The pedal vehicles for kids were mostly produced at real car factories. For example, AZLK factory, which produced Moskvich, had its own section of pedal Mosckvich models.
