The sun is finally out and it's time to remove the toys from the shed. But hang on a minute- last years scooters have been outgrown, and it's time to buy something new. Littlest has been trying a Didicar and here are his views:
From a parent perspective, I love that this is a toy which will grow with the child. Although it's called a Didicar, its actually suitable for ages 3 to, well adult. No really- I managed to fit my bottom on it without it collapsing. So if, like me, you hate rescuing garden toys like this from the shed and every year finding they've been outgrown, then this is a wise investment.
It's stupidly easy to put together, and everything required to do so is in the box, along with instructions so simple to follow in plain English- this is like the "dummies" guide of simplicity. It also travels well as it can be taken apart and reassembled with ease.
It's quick for the child to pick up, there is no need for blood sweat and tears with this one, as Littlest plonked himself on and got the hang of it straight away.
It runs well on a hard, flat surface and isn't recommended for grass but it made easy progress across our lawn.
It's a hardy plastic, so it washes well and there's no worry over rust.
If you are looking for a fun alternative to bikes, scooters and other, harder to get the hang of garden items, then the Didicar is well worth considering.
The Didicar we tested, "The Original" is available from Amazon for £49.99 (so it's cheaper than a bike!)
