A Blast From My Past, Confessions and Review of the John Crane Wooden Scooter

Review of the John Crane Trike

Review of the John Crane TrikeI don’t do many product reviews, but when BlogMatch offered me this little scooter from John Crane I fell in love.


There are 3 reasons I love it:

1) It’s wooden and wooden toys just look a hell of a lot nicer when you are looking at a room full of toys

2) It’s sturdy and seems pretty unbreakable

3) I had one when I was a little girl!


You see I was a HUGE fan of cars as a little girl and Little Dimples seems to have followed in the same vein.

I remember having a little scooter like this and driving it madly around whilst ‘brrruuuuummmmming’ and pretending I was driving, and sure enough when it came out of the box she did exactly the same.

She is 2 1/4 and it’s officially for children from 18 months, so I was a little worried that she wouldn’t like it.  But as my 6yo son has also played with it, I reckon it will be long lasting.

Let’s hope she doesn’t grow up to be as car obsessed as me, because at about 5years old I stole my Dads car keys to his sports car, so that I could go and sit in it and go ‘brrrruuuummm’ and flash the popup headlights lots …. until the battery went flat; there was no way I was getting out of that one!


But I could be too late, if you check out this video of her over a year ago, the FIRST time she sat in the driving seat of my old car:



I’m doomed aren’t I?  I sense many worried nights ahead of me when she gets older!
