Having read the negative reviews, I was unsure about buying this. However, as they were only displeased with the construction aspect, I decided to risk it. (At £19.95 it seemed a 'no-brainer'!) I'm SO pleased I took the plunge!
The instructions ARE a little difficult to interpret... They've obviously modified the design, adding a 'skirt' in the front for added safety. Therefore the first diagram on the instructions doesn't relate to the photo or subsequent diagrams. However, a positive attitude and a little common sense made it easy enough to tackle. We took our time, but it was completed within an hour, so worth the effort.
I can't report on the play-value yet, as bought it well in advance of my grandson's birthday. (Thank goodness I did, as now £43!) Can't wait to see his response when he gets it! Will add to this review when he's got it and had time to get used to it. The star ratings are a guess so far.
As promised, an update... Met all expectations as far as play value is concerned. My grandson can be a little hesitant with new things (he's only 18 mnths) but he got onto the tractor straight away. Steering is something he hasn't quite mastered yet, but it's light enough to manipulate. At the moment he hasn't got the trailer - that's something we can add later. He's quite small for his age, so it will last him for a long time, hopefully.
