As a role-play and social play item, the Ground Force Tractor toy will give your children so much more than a quick spin around the block. They can actually help you out in the garden, pretend that they are farming or working on their own. Four wheel drive is also a rarity with ride-on cars, so this is a key function that we think sets the Ground Force Tractor apart from all the rest. It isn’t designed to ensure your tot looks cool, which is great for those parents who want to get away from the commercial side of these toys.

* ASSEMBLY ... You have to assemble *everything* - absolutely nothing comes pre-assembled. For example, see the rear roll-bar in the photo? That alone is 16 pieces to be screwed together, not including the decals. Allow 90 minutes, but my repair took another 90 minutes, making assembly time a little over 3 hours total for me (from box to complete unit).
