For $219, parents and other gift-givers can cultivate farming passions in young boys and girls by buying them the John Deere Turf Tractor Battery-Powered Ride-On with Trailer.
An adjustable seat is available with the toy tractor, which accommodates an aspiring farmer as he or she grows. The toy tractor travels at two speeds as well as in reverse. And to ease the difficulties of not yet knowing how to drive, the accelerator and brakes are on the same pedal.
The toy tractor comes with a trailer, both of which very accurately reflect a real John Deere tractor by being yellow and green, the company's trademark colors. Hubcaps on the wheels also are yellow, which adds another realistic touch. The tractor also reflects the Deere brand name.
The toy tractor requires one 12-volt battery, which is included when purchased. However, two AA batteries that power the lights and sounds are not included.
The toy tractor should be ridden by no future farmers weighing more than 85 lbs, according to the manufacturer. The toy tractor has a two-year warranty.
