It’s no secret that my son is a John Deere fanatic, as this post goes live we will be preparing for our trip to the local John Deere dealership in Spain so he can ogle over the tractors in the showroom and watch the mechanics at work in the workshop!  Yes, no Spanish trip is complete without this little excursion.  With this knowledge in mind I just knew he’d love the John Deere Monster Treads Shake and Sounds Tractor from Tomy.

The John Deere Monster Treads Shake and Sounds Tractor is aimed at children aged 3-8 years and comes complete with 3 x AAA batteries.  We’ve reviewed a Lights and Sound Tractor many moons ago, it’s still well-loved, so I had high hopes for the Shakes and Sound version!

Love at first sight springs to mind.

With its big chunky tyres, the John Deere Monster Treads Shake and Sounds Tractor is perfect for off-roading and has provided so much entertainment already. The battery compartment is hidden under the bonnet.

Monkey soon discovered the red button which sets the tractor shaking with sounds for extra effect.

There’s no denying that this has been an instant hit.

Since Monkey’s John Deere Monster Treads Shake and Sounds Tractor arrived we’ve had tractor shows pretty much every day and this new addition has been accepted into his ever-growing John Deere collection.

We know from experience that this series is well made and very durable!  It’s hard to believe we’ve had Monkey’s original tractor since 2013.  I’ve been advised that after our holidays, the John Deere Monster Treads Shake and Sounds Tractor is likely to make numerous trips to the dunes in the sandpit and craters in his ‘digging area’ in the garden.

Priced at £19.99 we give this tractor a resounding thumbs up.  There are a number of different John Deere vehicles available on the Tomy website.  These are just a few.

Just realized I didn’t test what the button on the left does…
