Noah absolutely loves his tractors at the moment and luckily for him Tomy have released the Britains Big Farm Range, including remote control tractors and the new 1:16 scale John Deere Tractors. We were sent one of the new Big Farm Tractors and it is a life like, John Deere 6210R Tractor that is scaled down to toddler sized hands.
Noah cried so much when he saw this sitting in its box, in the dining room. I was going to hide it away for his birthday but I didn’t make it that far! He wanted it there and then and has been in love with it ever since. Now the tractor does have 3+ on the box, and I know Noah has only just turned 2, but the smaller parts that came with the tractor, that were loose, I haven’t attached. So there is nothing on the tractor that would be deemed unsafe for him to play with.
It has cab lights, makes an engine noise and a reversing noise with 2 very well hidden buttons on the roof. It was one of those situations where Noah found them before I did. I am sure that will happen many more times over the years, I am usually pretty on the ball with things like that too! The tractor has active steering, a detachable cab, an opening bonnet, a height adjustable rear hitch and realistic tyres. It’s really great watching him play with it and steering it around the lounge, he has a farmer figurine that oftens gets put in the cab and he loves telling us “farmer, in tractor”. He’s very sweet and you can see how much he loves it.
