Christmas came a bit early for our household! We brought home a Scout Rideamal a few weeks back for my 4-year old daughter, and it is one of the coolest toys we've ever gotten her. As someone who already owns a few ride-ons, I was hesitant to add another one to our collection. But, Scout is way more than a typical jeep or other ride-on. It eats, dances, and has a ton of other fun quirks/sounds (yes, it farts) that keep my kids and their friends in interested for long stretches of time. As a ride-on, I was pleasantly surprised at how long the battery lasts, and how stable it is when being ridden by a larger child. We recently brought Scout to a bday party in an open school gymnasium, and kids anywhere from 3 - 9 years old were cruising around and laughing and screaming with delight (should have brought earplugs). Scout is definitely meant to be ridden in an open space (basement or sidewalk), as its size won't allow for a kid to turn on a dime in a hallway or living room. It's only been a few weeks, but Scout has been a really fun addition to our household.
