My eyes popped out on stalks when I saw Land Rover’s preview of the bespoke Defender Pedal Car. This concept car is a creation of scale celebrating over 60 years of Defender production, but to my kids it’s just a mega wicked looking toy!
The Land Rover is affectionately known as ‘Huey’, in tribute to its original number plate HUE 166. Hand built in the UK, the drive assembly is constructed to enable the young driver to pedal both forwards and backwards, while a spring suspension and working brakes (complete with parking brake!) will allow the littler ones to go on many big adventures.
Before your little ones scramble to put this one on their Christmas list, there are a couple of things to note: it’s not available until Spring 2016 and they’ll have had to have been very, very good, with a retail price of around £10,000.
