My 2 1/2 year old nephew received this for Christmas and was very excited. However, two hours later when his dad, grandpa, and uncle (all highly skilled engineer-types) were still working on sorting out the nuts, bolts, and how to fix the bent axle so that the pedals would actually turn, he was sitting staring sadly with his head on the steering wheel saying, "But it's my truck . . ."

Grandpa commented that they sure hadn't changed how they make pedal trucks from the 1940s when his best friend got one. This is a good thing (durable construction) and a bad thing (lots of pieces and parts, heavy, hard to steer and pedal if you're small enough to fit in the thing.) Once it was put together and my nephew crawled in, it was apparent he was not going to be able to make it move by himself, at least on the short carpet in the basement. And he is a tall, strong, coordinated 2 1/2 year old. His four year old sister started pushing him, which simply led to crashing into walls and cabinets--their dad started scheming how to use pipe insulation to fashion bumpers and save the finish of his recent remodel until the snow melted in the spring and it could move outside.

All in all, my feeling is that if you want a sturdy, old-school, good-looking gift for a strong kid who loves trucks, this is for him or her. If you want something easier to put together that is light and easy enough to pedal/steer for most little ones, you might want to consider something cheap and plastic that will fall apart in a couple of years. One note on durability: my brother and I had a cast-iron John Deer pedal tractor (very similar design) 35 years ago and it still works!

OK, no comments about the date. I still remember it clearly.
This was bought as a gift for my grandson.
My daughter, son-in-law and especially my grandson, LOVE THIS TRUCK.
My daughter likes the style and the fact that he will get exercise using it.
My son-in-law likes the construction and materials.
My grandson likes the bell.
Win-win-win.

Presto! I'm a hero

We bought this pedal car for our grandson this past Christmas. We put it together and suprisingly, it wasn't that difficult. We weren't able to wrap it so we sat it in front of the tree among the other gifts and he went straight for it. He climbed right in and has had many, many hours of fun ever since. This thing is made so well. It is a lot more durable than we expected. It has risen above all of his other ride on toys to become his favorite. It has a lot of nice features too. Like the removable ladders and the bell. You can also adjust the reach of the pedals as they grow. Considering how well it's made, i'm quite certain it will be an heirloom for his grandchildren some day.

Love this! My grandson can't get enough of it. My only disappointment was it was left outside in the sun and the paint turned sort of purplish.

A perfect grandparents' gift for a 2-7 year old. It looked special under the tree and was a HUGE success as a gift. It is very sturdy, with no sharp edges and plenty to stimulate the imagination of an active toddler and young child. It took about 2 hours to assemble, but was well worth the time.

My "just turned" 2 year old grandson can only say a few words but 2 of them are "Fire truck." He loved the truck. My son put it together in under and hour. He said it was sturdy and well made. It was a hit with both my grandson and his 5 yr. old sister.

So I bought this for my nephew for his 1st birthday and had it sent to his house. My Sister called and said it was really cool and pretty heavy duty but they didn't send the screws to attach the ladders and some of the pieces didn't line up well. She said it was nice and heavy duty but lacked a little quality in craftsmanship. If they spent a little more time with attention to detail during production, this would be a 5 star item. Kind of a bummer for the amount of money. Oh well.
