Wifey wants to buy this for Baby...

What do you guys think?


Description



A childs first leg powered motorcycle ride-on designed for future racing champions. The Ducati Monster features 2 position side training wheels which can be easily adjusted to fit the childs age and skill level. As the child grows the training wheels can be removed for free wheeling fun. The realistic Ducati accelerator sounds and working horn add to the fun. COMES FULLY ASSEMBLED


Why we love it



The Ducati Monster is perfect for a 1 year old because this leg push motorcycle is the perfect size for your little one on the run.


Product Features



* This MOTORCYCLE is perfect for improving the confidence of little walkers. Your child can climb on the learning toy and walk around as he/she pretends to drive.
* This cycle has little gadgets to help imaginations at work, like a working horn. Show your child how he/she can pretend to honk the horn, turn the ignition and fill up with gasoline.
* Take the motorcycle outside and drive it on the driveway. Your child can pretend to drive around town. You can even give them an obstacle course to drive around or draw a highway on the ground with sidewalk chalk.
* You can use this motorcycle to teach your little one some rules of the road. For example, always wear a helmet or look both ways before crossing.

No... You have to step up from the budget monster for that.. Perhaps they will come out with an RS model... I don't even think the larger sized model has a rattle can

I always found the less expensive skimpy outfits from Victoria's Secret to be incentive enough.

Yes, those outfits usually work on just about every idea/suggestion... the only problem is that you can't fit into them by the 6th or 7th month!

Who's kidding who? They end up on the floor, twirling around on the ceiling fan, over the back of the couch, etc anyways, right?

(oh, and the garments wind up in those places too)

Where can I get one? Is this a straight from Ducati only deal, or is it licensed to Toys R Us or something? I think you may have just shown me my little girls Christmas present (she is currently 9 1/2 months).

It's a Ducati...your kid will need an Iphone and a Starbucks gift card along with it. Not to mention, he'll start hanging out with the crowd like Ernie, Deefib, and Tony and that's just trouble right there.
