This toy has been around since at least the 50's when I was a child. Most parts are metal and the whole thing weighs about 30 pounds. My 2 and 3 year old grandsons jumped right on and started pedaling and stayed on for hours every day that they were visiting. The one I had wasn't new when I got it and as far as I know may still be around somewhere. This tractor should still be going after several rounds of grand and great grand children.
