We bought this as a gift for our 22month old son who loves anything that moves but only if does not break. This cast iron aeroplane model is very well made, full of little details and has received 'wow' compliments especially when considering the reasonable price. The propellors, wheels and little pilot are made of plastic but have been sturdy enough to endure my son poking at them and the wheels have survived running along brick walls. Its dimensions are just right for a toddlers grasp and small enough to fit into a coat pocket. My son is very fond of this model aeroplane and carries it around with him everywhere, along with his model cars and motor bike! This model aeroplane also looks great as an ornament.
