This tractor was purchased for our grandson's fourth birthday. He's now had it for a month and it's been a huge success for both him and his smaller brother and cousin. The digger is used to scoop up gravel from a heap and then redistribute it elsewhere. It's also used to transport small toys around the garden. The bonnet opens and he's constantly 'working on the engine'. Steering round the corners of the house took a bit of practice but he quickly learned how to manoeuvre.
We wanted a ride on toy that would last for years as most of the ones we saw were quite small and designed for children in the 2-4 range. This one is much larger and should do him for a few years - he's tall for his age and just as well or he wouldn't have been able to reach the pedals.
The build seems substantial and sturdy, though the scoop part looks a bit more fragile than the rest. Time will tell.
One piece of advice for people who purchase this item - allow plenty of time to assemble it. The instructions were on several apparently unrelated sheets. They consisted of diagrams which were not clear, so we were glad we decided to take it out of the box early in the evening before the birthday. It did take quite a while to put it together and this meant he could just jump on it and pedal off on his birthday!

Absolutely fabulous tractor, price and brand. Cannot fault this, it exceeded all expectations and made a 3 year old boy very happy on his birthday. A month of solid wear and still no signs of anything loosening or breaking. Absolutely marvelous to put up, took me (a 20 something year old woman) half an hour mo sweat. Recommend.
