In one of those time sensitive deals, Catch of the Day is offering Dora, Diego and Ben 10 pedal and electric ride-ons for $59-$79.99.
Well, the heat wave we're experiencing in WA means I have no enthusiasm for getting myself or my children outdoors, if I'm honest, but I know it wont last and when we're ready to resume our evening walks these ride ons would provide a great way to avoid the 'but I don't want to walk' scenario.
The $59 Dora And Diego ride ons play music and come complete with headlights that light up and can reach a speed of 2.5km an hour, so should be able to keep up with a slow walking parent! They are suitable for ages 3 – 7, and run on a 6V battery and have a charger included.
The middle option, the quad bike at $69.99 features bright and colourful designs. It is also 100% power operated, so doesn't provide much by way of exercise, but at 3km per hour, provides a fair bit of excitement, which burns calories too!
The top of the range option at $79.99 also plays music and includes a race car style steering wheel with a tooting horn and fun Dora and Boots decals. These are suitable for ages 3 – 6, with a maximum weight capacity of 30kg.
Looking at Myshopping.com.au for a comparison, the next best price I can find for any of these is $108, excluding shipping, so while you still have to add the bulky items surcharge of $12 to your order, it's still a lot cheaper than anywhere else.
