PRODUCT: Britains Big Farm Land Rover Defender (www.learningcurve.com)Britains Big Farm Land Rover Defender

DESCRIPTION: A 1:16 scale model of a navy blue Land Rover Defender. Features include realistic lights and sounds, rolling wheels, active steering and removable canopy. Approximate dimensions are 26 x 15 x 11 cm. Requires 3 x AAA batteries (included). Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Britains Big Farm Land Rover is a fantastic heavy duty plastic model, with loads of great realistic features to appeal to any little boy (or girl!).

The model is a generous size, with a durable vehicle body, and all the appearance of a full scale four-wheel-drive. The vehicle has fantastic attention to detail, with everything from the exterior door handles, number plates, mud flaps and name badges, to the interior seats, steering wheel and dashboard features.

The Land Rover has open side windows and sunroof, and a silver plastic canopy on the back which can be removed completely if desired. The boot contains a spare wheel attached to the outside of the drivers compartment, and has a working tailgate which folds down. In addition, there is a hitch on the back of the vehicle on which to attach a matching Britains trailor (purchased separately).

The four rolling wheels have realistic tyre tread markings, and the front two wheels can be actively turned using the steering wheel to enable your child to manoeuvre the vehicle easily round the house! Another great feature of the vehicle is the interactive light and sound buttons on the bonnet of the Land Rover. One of the buttons activates the horn, while the other makes realistic engine start-up and revving noises. When either of the sound effects are activated, the front headlights light up! Batteries can be replaced via a compartment on the underside of the vehicle (a screwdriver will be required).

In all, a reasonably-priced and fun vehicle, with lots of detail and interactive features for children to explore and incorporate into their role-play.

BAD POINTS: The sound effects are quite loud, although your kids will love that! The driver and passenger doors do not open, and the canopy seems a little flimsy.

PRICE: Approx. £20
