When it comes to holiday gifts for kids, the best are those that will keep on giving—in other words, those that children will actually return to play with time and again.
Ride-on toys like bikes and scooters fall squarely into this category with an added bonus: They help kids be active.
That’s why this John Deere Front Loader from Peg Perego seems like such a fantastic gift for kids.
Not only can the kids pedal it around, they can use the front loader to transport any number of items from dirt to sand to the family pet (just kidding—kids, if you’re reading, don’t try that at home).
It’s on sale right now on Amazon for $136.99, marked down from $198.99.
The toy is Prime-eligible, too, so if you’re a Prime member, you can get it shipped to your door for free in just two days.
Plus, you can add a 2-year accident protection plan for $15.99 or a 3-year accident protection plan for $22.99 if you want a little extra peace of mind!
According to Amazon, this tractor comes with a working front loader that scoops, carries and dumps right from the driver’s seat. It also has construction tractor wheels that operate easily on grass, dirt, pavement or gravel.
The bucket seat is adjustable and has a roll bar.
I just used Camelcamelcamel—a site that tracks prices over time to help you decide if you’re getting a good deal—and it looks like this price checks out as the lowest Amazon’s offered for a new version of the tractor (seems like you can find it used for cheaper, if you want to go that route).
If you’re sold on this as a gift for your little one, I would act fast as the price can shift at any time.
