I bought this for my 3 yr old son's birthday. I was hesitant at first thinking maybe he should be older but it is perfect for him. He figured out immediately how to use it completely. We have a large, open back yard so I don't really have to worry about him running into things. He loves it and cries when we make him get off. It is good quality and much cheaper than most from a toy store.
we got this truck last fall for our granddaughter. the hood never stays on right which wasnt too bad since its a ford i guess. she never really drove it last fall since she had just turned 2. she has finally gotten the hang of it and NOW the gears are slipping and it makes an awful grinding noise when she starts out. the wheels wore down fast also so they slip and slide. really disappointed in this toy :(
My son is just shy of 2, and he loves this truck! He received it as a gift from his grandparents, and although he needs a little encouragement to keep his foot on the petal, he loves to drive it! The controls are simple!
Still going strong after 2 years of hard use. Easy to assemble and a hit with the grandkids.
