There’s loads for the small ones including the rather impressive ride on Land Rover and Jaguar at €99.99 each. Both battery powered vehicles really look the part because they are actually licenced by the manufacture. They have a max speed of three miles per hour so you don’t even have to worry about the small ones getting pulled for speeding! They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and for kids aged between three and five.
They both feature working headlights, forward and reverse gears, an MP3 facility for music, working suspension, an electric horn, a seat belt and a rechargeable battery and charger.
