I bought this for my son (who just turned 3) but knowing it was more for future than now - however, he loves all things building site so thought I would give it a try. It can stand up to quite a bit of punishment and when I use it, it's brilliant, works exactly as expected. It's pretty slow (2-3 mph tops) but great for digging in our garden borders and filling up his dump trucks. For the price it's got great features. My only negative points are: (1) for a 3 y/o, it's a bit complicated in terms of getting it to dig. I have programmed it to do a basic "dig" action and for now this works fine - when he's a bit older I think I can teach him how to dig properly. However, this is because I'm trying to use it when he's so young so not really a fair criticism of the product itself. The fact it has a program/memory function at this price point is pretty impressive. (2) he wants to use it like a non-r/c toy and it does make some nasty clacking noises if you try and move any of the parts manually - would be good if there was a "gear disengage" that would allow the arm to move freely. However, again, this is more due to my son's age than an issue with the product. (3) The arm doesn't go as close to the "body" as it should, which can make it tricky to dig things by pushing them against the tracks. It's probably 1-2cm too short in my view. Overall I would heartily recommend, especially for children aged 5-10+ (or big kids like me).
