PRODUCT: Britains Big Farm Bobcat E-35 Compact Excavator (www.learningcurve.com)Britains E-35 Compact Excavator

DESCRIPTION: A 1:16 scale model of a black and white compact excavator. Features include realistic lights and sounds, active steering, movable tracks, 360° rotating body, and working front excavator arm, scoop and shovel. Approximate dimensions are 25 x 16 x 11 cm. Requires 3 x AAA batteries (included). Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Britains Big Farm compact excavator is another great scale model in the Britains Big Farm range, that will have huge appeal particularly among little boys. It is a heavy duty plastic model in a black and white design, which is an exact mini replica of a Bobcat E-35 Compact Excavator. As such, the attention to detail on the excavator is wonderfully realistic, from the larger distinguishing features such as the caterpillar tracks, scoop and front shovel, down to the most minute control and foot pedal detailing in the driver's cabin.

The model is a great size for children to operate and explore, and the main body of the excavator is made from a sturdy plastic, with lots of clear plastic windows and a working side door that your child will love opening and closing. The two large fantastic caterpillar tracks allow your child to move the mini excavator forwards (not sure it is designed to go backwards!), while the front shovel (or plough) not only lifts up for when the excavator is in motion, but can also be lowered for action, and just like a real plough, can even be moved left and right.

Another great feature of the Bobcat Compact Excavator is its working excavator arm that lifts and lowers, along with its attached scoop which can be tilted forwards and backwards. In addition, the main cab of the excavator can be rotated right the way round for 360° digging!

The excavator also has two interactive buttons on the top of the driver's cabin, which when pressed, not only activate realistic engine noises but also light up the front headlight. Batteries can be replaced via a compartment on the underside of the excavator (a screwdriver will be required).

In all, this is a reasonably-priced and wonderfully detailed little excavator that is great fun to play with, and has plenty of interactive features to occupy kids of all ages!

BAD POINTS: The sound effects are quite loud, although your kids will love that! The driver's door is quite flimsy to open and close. Due to the amount of detailing and clear plastic on the excavator, this is probably more suitable for use by slightly older children whose play is less rigorous!

PRICE: Approx. £18
