My son wisely hid the tractor while he assembled it (Grandma left that up to him -- I particularly dislike "picture" instructions!) and also while charging the battery, something I would strongly suggest for any parent since the first charge takes a full 18 hours! But, finally, the moment arrived when my two- and four-year-old grandsons saw it. To say they were thrilled is an understatement!
Neither boy had trouble learning to drive it, although the younger one was especially fascinated by the scoop and was content for some time in just raising and lowering it -- an extremely easy task for little hands. The pedals are reachable even for the younger grandson, and the speed seems reasonably safe,
Now, for the cons: The turning radius could be tighter and there is no reverse. Added together, this makes parental help necessary quite often to reposition it -- unless you have a huge yard with no obstacles. And even then, it probably wouldn't take long for the child to get stuck. It's light weight for a grown-up, but pretty tough on even a four-year-old to lift, plus his having to get in and out in order to manually get it free.
I also question the statement in the description which says it is suitable for indoor use. What were they thinking -- an unfinished full basement, perhaps? Not in my house!
I have to add that their interest has noticeably waned in the last week -- but I believe a few days under cover and out of sight will be enough to spark their interest once again. It's certainly durable enough to last for several years.
Yes, I recommend it.
This has a bit of power to it that I did not expect, but completely safe. It does not die after a few minutes, and lasts a full exhaustive playtime. How perfect that it recharges and that we don't have to deal with buying batteries etc. My only suggestion is to make sure they don't on too high of an incline. Though it is very well made and proportionate for distributed weight.
If you have room in the house, it can certainly be used inside. However, it is now a shed toy that can only be used outside due to the hard dirty work it has been through. It holds up well. I have rinsed it off with a hose just fine. I feel it's worth the money and will last a while being quite durable.
The most important part of this is not the excitement you will see in their eyes, but the fact they are learning life skills and coordination. They can participate with you, or play on their own. They are in their own little projects so full force that they will be far from bored. Even though the controls are easy, they are learning by doing, and strengthening their memory skills on how things work. When they can do it all on their own, that's when the big man comes out. ... and not just for boys, so don't rule the girls out. But my product tester was a 3 year old construction worker.
- I agree with all the other reviewers, rubber wheels rather than plastic would have been a great improvement. It was hard to use on grass, unless the grass was kept short.
-The turning radius is rather large, so a parent must be careful where you let the child use this, as they might not be able to steer out of trouble.
- My grandson is five and not extremely tall or heavy, so was able to use this without any trouble, but he is at the very upper range for it. A large or heavy child might find it too small, so I would not recommend it for a child that is very much older or large for a four or five year old. Peg Perego does make somewhat larger units that would fit an older child.
- I do not see how a two year old could use this safely, so I would recommend it for a somewhat older child.
