    Pros: when it works, fun for kids

    Pros: It has never drained the battery because it has never worked long enough.
    Cons: Can't drive on grass Breaks down often.

    Pros: Great looks and functionality. My son loves it and now drives pretty good
    Cons: Terrible durability/gear design. Being an engineer I would never have released such a shoddy design.

    Pros: Fun to ride on
    Cons: Not Durable

    Summary: The Gator is fun to ride on, and neat to look at, but it is not near as durable as the Power Wheels. My son (40 lbs) got his Gator for a Christmas present in 2003, but didn't ride it until May of 2004 because we live where it is cold most of the year. ... read more
