My youngest son (8 yr old) is tractor mad. He already had a remote control Siku tractor, and had been lusting after this for 2 years! Finally splashed out at Christmas. He has now played with it for hours per day - boxing day being particularly easy child care! It is robust and durable (tailgate has been knocked off a couple of times - easy repair). He can now reverse a trailer too! Expensive, but worth it.
