After giving away a hardly used steering wheel toy my son had to the charity shop, I was looking for something a bit more useable to get him, to teach him some driving skills(!) & keep him busy in the back of the car. I was not disappointed with this! Previous reports have said its a bit flimsy but I really haven't found this to be true. Its been thrown in the car on numerous journeys, stuck to the patio doors at home & is really one of his favourite toys. Plus my 2 year old seems to have grasped the face that the brakes slow you down, the gear change lets you go faster & the hooter makes people move out of the way. Yes its noisy, but less noisy than a bored toddler!
