Toyota wants to get kids excited about owning a car, so they have unveiled a family-oriented concept car that even children can drive. The Camatte has room for 3 people, features adjustable pedals and seats, and can reach speeds of up to 25 mph. It was on display last week at the International Tokyo Toy Show 2012.

The Camatte has a toy-like customizable body with easily removable and installable body panels, which enable the owner to choose from a wide range of color and design combinations. The simple body structure has been designed to spur interest in cars by allowing parents and children to directly handle the vehicle components while developing an understanding of the structure and workings of motor vehicles.

The three-seater can be driven by children at non-public places such as go-kart tracks. The pedals and seats can be adjusted to enable a child to operate them, while an adult (seated in the rear-right seat) assists with steering and braking and helps the child develop driving skills.
