This past winter in NJ was horrendous and we were shut indoors most of the time. Not how we like to be at all! Now that warmer weather is here, we have been taking advantage of it and spending tons of time outdoors. The boys are outside morning and night. They love to pass the hours playing football, swimming, frog catching and playing with the coolest RC truck I’ve ever seen. What is it? It is the RC Gator Monster Treads from John Deere. We were sent one of these bad boys to check out* and I am so excited to share our find with you!

As one would expect from hearing the brand name John Deere, this remote control truck is rough and rugged.  Stands up to the test of serious play and off roading when my boys are playing with it and that is saying a lot! There is a long-range of 50 feet, so they don’t have to hover over it to play with it and it lasts for a good 45 minute session.  I can’t stand it when you only get 5-10 minutes out of a charge.  The longer time allows for the kids to really test it out and have fun. A great feature on this truck is that you can go all directions.  You are not limited to just going forward or backward.  You can twist, turn every direction, flip over, you name it, you can do it!

Check out this video to see what I’m talking about.

This is no ordinary remote control vehicle.  I love the pneumatic wheels as you can literally go anywhere and do anything with this truck. 360 spins?  Not a problem for the Gator.  My kids are totally enamored with this truck, as it is so much fun to play with.  My biggest complaint is only have one for them to share–something, I will have to remedy! It’s so sturdy, I am certain we will be able to get to play with it all four seasons.  They can’t wait to have it go out on the snow!
