Rated 5 out of 5 by Gr8B Excellent
Looks the part, as the pictures illustrate. Well made, easy to assemble, popular with both our 19 month old and 3+ Year old.
Wouldn't have thought a 12 month old would get much use of it unless they had very long legs, best for 18 months +
Great indoors -smooth, silent wheels - no irritating squeaking
Will be interesting to see how long it survives outdoors! ...Having said that there are no loose or flimsy items of plastic on this, unlike the more expensive tractor - i.e. mudguards and trapped fingers!
In summary a good value, well thought out item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jorchid Really sturdy ride on, excellent quality
I was looking for a car ride on toy for my 21 month old, he's not quite ready for a big pedal car but seemed too big for many of the other more babyish ride on cars, it looked like he would grow out of many of them within the year and a lot of other ride on car advised that they shouldn't be used after the age of 3 so when I came across this Bobby Car I was really impressed to see that it took 50kg and seemed really sturdy and not at all babyish, he should get a good couple of years out of it. This is mainly down to the steering which is excellent (many other ride on's seem to just have 'token' steering). The steering wheel also features a horn and their are holes front and back where you can attach a tow rope or trailer (unfortunately not also sold on John Lewis). Talking to German friends, it seems this is the go to ride on toy in Germany so I'm really pleased I discovered it here. It advertises three riding positions too (sitting, kneeling on one knee and scooting with the other, or legs up) we haven't really managed to test these out yet but it bodes well that there is more to learn and get out of it as a toy. They tyres are a really solid rubber and works brilliantly inside and out. The little speedo dial lifts open, and is advertised as a 'secret compartment' in reality it is tiny and you wouldn't get much in there, we use it as the petrol cap and pretend to fill it up, which is just as much fun! I bought this with 30% off so was a great price, but would happily have payed a little more as it is a quality toy, that you don't often find today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigP21 Great manufacturer back up
Quickly assembled on Xmas day &didn't properly complete the steering wheel part. Two days later I had lost the plastic spacers. Contacting the German manufacturer by e mail resulted in spares being promptly sent at no cost. Good product choice by JL again with excellent back up.
