If you have a little boy or girl in your family who loves tractors, the Peg Perego John Deere Ground Loader Ride On is the perfect toy for them. This miniature John Deere tractor allows kids to actually drive their own John Deere, and is sure to provide hours of fun for the right kid. In this review, we’ll take a look at all the features of the Peg Perego John Deere Ground Loader and help you decide if this toy is right for your child.
First, this isn’t just a tiny little toy tractor for kids to play with—this John Deere Ground Loader Ride On is literally big enough for kids to ride around on. It’s powered by a 12 volt battery and has two speed settings. It can go either two and a half miles per hour or speed up to four and a half miles per hour. This speed is not quite fast enough to be dangerous for young children, but it still allows them to feel like they’re getting a little bit of speed. If you’re worried about safety, there is a second gear lockout feature for parents that will keep kids from switching to the faster gear.
Not only does the John Deere Ground Loader Ride On have two speed settings, it can also go into reverse. This realistic gear change is fun for kids and lets them feel like they’re driving a real tractor. Plus, the front loader really works. Kids can pick up dirt or toys easily with the big front scoop and move them around. Need someone to help out with some yard work? Kids will love digging and moving dirt in their very own John Deere.
Another great feature is the wheels. This John Deere Ground Loader Ride On has high traction wheels that work on a variety of terrains. Kids can ride smoothly over grass, pavement, or dirt. The wheels even work on bumpy old gravel roads, so your kid can travel anywhere in their John Deere.
Finally, the John Deere Ground Loader Ride On comes with an adjustable seat. This means even as your child grows, they’ll still be able to play with this toy. Not only does the seat itself adjust, you can also lift the armrests to create more room in the seat for bigger kids.
The John Deere Ground Loader Ride On comes with the tractor itself, plus the front loader scoop that’s already attached. In addition to these main components, you’ll also get a 12 volt rechargeable battery and charger. This allows your kid to recharge and keep playing for as long as they want.
There are some additional accessories that can be purchased separately. You can get a matching John Deere trailer to attach to the back of the ground loader, for one. You can also purchase a horn with a speaker to attach to the tractor, so kids can honk their horn as they drive.
This toy is great for kids who are interested in tractors and machines, or who really want to drive Dad’s tractor but aren’t old enough yet. The John Deere Ground Loader Ride On is recommended for kids ages 3 to 7, and we think that’s the perfect age to enjoy this fun toy.
