I got this truck for younger of my two boys (now aged 5 1/2 and 3 1/2) a year and a half ago. They've both driven the heck out of this little truck in the last year and a half. This truck doesn't have the speed of the larger Power Wheels, but it also doesn't get stuck like the larger ones do when they're not in high gear. This little truck has taken every licking my little ones can dish out and doesn't quit. It has proven very tolerant of the outright abuse that my kids have dished out. The body and tires are intact, and the motors and gearboxes are still going strong. The only weak spots have been the forward/reverse switch, which I've had to disassemble and clean a couple of times, and the stickers, many of which are looking rather ragged. After an overnight charge, the battery lasts a couple of hours of near continuous use. The tires, though flat in the center, have knobby tread on the sides that grip at terrain well. It takes some doing for my kids to get this truck stuck. If they do manage to bog it down, it is small and light enough that they can usually push or pull it out themselves. Being that this is a smaller truck, it is better suited to kids at the younger end of Fisher-Price's recommended 2-6 age range. My older son (now 5 1/2) has nearly grown out of it, but my 3 1/2 year old still loves this truck and drives it all the time. In all, this has been one of the most phenomenal toy purchases I've ever made for my kids, and for the price it can't be beat!
