Also dozens of unlicensed ripoffs.

* ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} - one with Popeye on a boat by Jolly Roger. The notorious thing about the design is that the coin slot is on Popeye's ''crotch''.



* Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog is also not exempted- the Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car and Sonic Cosmo Fighter are two early kiddie rides made by Creator/{{Sega}} themselves back in the classic Sonic days. These rides also featured built-in monitors that played out a basic "game" while the ride is in use, blurring the line a bit between them and arcade games. (The Segasonic Popcorn Shop from the same era worked similarly, though it was a vending machine rather than a ride.). As per usual with many Japanese licensed rides, these rides were not officially exported, although grey-market imports can be found in several parts of the world. Ironically tho, some have reported that they've seen English versions of the ride being placed at high-tourist locations, suggesting that Sega may have considered exporting them at one point.

* WesternAnimation/PostmanPat - The post van (which has been redesigned twice over[[note]]The original van was built by OMC Electronics. The license then went over to RG Mitchells for a while, where they produced a limited run of a version of the van with a rolling road display, before finally landing in the hands of [=Fun2Learn=], which removed the rolling road display and revamped the ride design[[/note]] ), the helicopter from ''Postman Pat: SDS'', and a ride where you get to sit on a sack of mail next to Pat. The signature van design is a pretty common ride all over the UK.

** Allegedly, Creator/{{Sanrio}} embraces this trope, as aside from Hello Kitty, there's also ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}'' kiddie rides among others.
*** From Japan, we have (in loose chronological order) Hello Kitty teaching in front of a blackboard, Hello Kitty holding on to some balloons (both are rocking rides, by the way), three Hello Kitty cars (one with a monitor to play out a simple game with the rider), a Hello Kitty Cinderella coach (again with monitor to play out a game), a battery-operated car, a "magical" piano with Hello Kitty standing on the top, and Hello Kitty hanging on to a WingedUnicorn which the rider will ride on. And that's just the ''known'' models. There are apparently several manufacturers, but the most prevalent one is apparently Creator/NamcoBandai.
*** From Europe, we have two models of a different Hello Kitty car (one single seater where the rider gets to sit next to Hello Kitty and one two seater where Hello Kitty is sitting in the back instead), a Ferris wheel, and a see-saw ride with Hello Kitty on the other end. All models are made by Cogan Italy.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', both the Anime and the games, are also not exempted to the treatment. Especially prominent are rides featuring Pikachu. Sadly, like many Japanese licensed kiddie rides, they're not officially exported out of Japan either.

Unfortunately, there are also knockoff rides, and those are sadly much more prominent outside of Japan.

** There's also a modern Sonic ride based on Sonic's car in ''VideoGame/SonicAndSegaAllStarsRacing'', again built by Sega themselves. Unlike the other Sonic attempts, this one is a straight up kiddie ride. Unlike the classic Sonic rides, this model is being exported worldwide.
