Children love to help get involved in activities that makes them feel included as part of the family and allows them to be one of the grown-ups. A great option to choose when looking for an activity that is safe and useful can be gardening. While this may seem a bit of a chore, when a child has a dump truck, gardening is sheer fun. The Peg Perego John Deere Gator XUV in Green makes it so.

Peg Perego John Deere Gator XUV Features:
One of its greatest features that the Peg Perego John Deere Gator XUV offers is the bed on the back of this truck. While it seems a little, “gimmicky” to an adult your child will love the fact that it elevates. After filling it up with cuttings from bushes, kids can raise it to discard what needs to be disposed of.
Another exciting feature is this vehicle’s ability to move 2 ¼ mph or 4 ½ mph forward, and its ability to go backward. If you have concerns that your child may not be able to handle the speed you not worry about it as access to the faster gear can be denied.
The Peg Perego John Deere Gator XUV has large wheels and tires giving great traction whether your child is driving on grass or tarmac,(or around the house!) and the additional feature of automatic brakes are useful.
To ensure that as many children can enjoy the product as possible the Gator XUV features height adjustable seats and the manufacturer suggests that the XUV is suitable for children between 3 and 8 years old.
A charger comes with the 12 volt battery meaning that no additional purchase is required.
What do owners think?:
At the time of writing the Peg Perego John Deere Gator XUV has a rating of 4.4 out of five on Amazon.com
The people who have bought this say they and their children like the way it looks – some people have even gone so far as to modify the body work and lights with LED’s.
The speed seems to be just about right on the slow setting for smaller younger children with the restriction in place and if you live somewhere with a lot of hills you are in luck! Many owners comment on the impressive power the motor kicks out.
Despite the suggestion from the manufacturer to purchase an additional battery for “double the please” most owners say they are happy with the battery life they get from the single 12v.
Some of the negative comments are focused on the plastic used in the construction, the owners saying they are surprised at how thin and flexible the plastic is. It has also been suggested that despite claims that the vehicle can take kids up to 8 years old that in fact up to six would be more appropriate. Ultimately this will come down to the development of your child for their age as to whether this is suitable for them.
