Good question. The first impression that kids get is that of an entertaining 
toy. They don't connect the car with 'me' (self) or any other sentient being.

I think the bug used in Hilaire guide is a better starter. It is a small 
sentient being and most children would see a bug from the top, so they could 
relate to it easily.
