The key factors we advise customers to consider when selecting toys are age, abilities, skills, and interest level. 

This approach guarantees that the chosen toys are a good fit for each child's unique needs and preferences, helping to prevent any potential frustration.

Big Farm John Deere 6190R Remote Control Tractor

Forwards, backwards, left, and right – have fun on the farm, whether indoors or outdoors! The Big Farm John Deere Remote Control Tractor features chunky tyres, working lights, and realistic sounds.

We would recommend this for ages 4 and up. The only drawback with this option is that under the safety precautions, it does mention not to use rechargeable batteries. So, ensure you're well-stocked to prevent any potential frustration.

John Deere-Opoly

John Deere-Opoly is hands down the best board game ever! Test your luck and skills as you aim to become the Top Farmer with this collector's edition of John Deere-opoly. It's the perfect board game to enjoy during Christmas or on a family game night.

Recommended for ages 8 years and up. We only wish it used pounds sterling instead of dollars, but it's still a fantastic board game!

John Deere 12v Ground Force Electric Tractor

Kids love being in the driving seat. This electric ride on features 2 forward gears and a reverse. The 1st gear maintains a regular walking pace, while the 2nd gear offers a bit more speed. Fortunately, there's a lock to keep it from shifting into 2nd gear unless you intentionally enable it for your child.

This fantastic one-seater tractor and trailer is perfect for children aged 3 and up.

Britains John Deere Farm in a Box

A brilliantly designed gift set featuring the clever use of sustainable packaging with nothing wasted. It comes complete with a John Deere toy tractor, front loader, flat green trailer, two sets of cows and their calves, three round bales that fit the front loader, and four fence panels.

The only drawback is that the tractor isn't compatible with other Britains toys. We would recommend it for ages 3 and up.

Bruder are German manufacturers of high-quality toys, and they make large John Deere tractors and vehicles with lots of moving parts! The Profi-Series Collection has an age recommendation starting from 4 years.

Their large-scale toys appeal to children with their bright colours and incredible details. Equipped with realistic play functions, these toys can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors. 

Our Bruder collection also boasts fantastic accessories, including cows, bales and posable farmer figures who can drive tractors and combine harvesters.

If your child loves to play energetically, we'd suggest opting for Bruder toys as they can endure a lot more wear and tear than Britains and Siku toys.

Rolly Toys

Rolly is a manufacturer of all styles of ride-on tractors, and what sets them apart is that they actually model their vehicles after real ones. This means all the styling is accurate, from engine blocks to the slant angle of the bonnet.

All their tractors are blow moulded for extra strength and durability, and their axles are 10-12mm thick, which is strong enough to bear the weight of the heaviest adult – but not advised!

We stock a range of Rolly Ride-Ons, starting from foot-to-floor options to pedal power, suitable for children aged one to eight years old!

There's also a fantastic variety of add-ons, from trailed implements like the Rolly Plough to amazing trailers that tip – all of which are great for keeping the kids entertained outdoors.


Siku has a huge selection of John Deere toy tractors which are accurately detailed, and made of diecast metal and plastic.

Designed for children as young as three to older collectors, Siku offers an excellent range of tractors. They have everything from pocket-sized John Deere mini tractors and trailers that are perfect for on-the-go play to superbly detailed 1:32 scale tractors.

Siku also offers an impressive range of remote-controlled tractors, but these can be quite pricey and have vulnerable parts. We would recommend that they are best suited for children aged 6 and older.

What is the Best Tractor Toy for 4-Year-Olds?

It all comes down to play style and preferences. If they aren't too concerned about exact replicas and love lights and sounds, then John Deere Monster Treads are a fantastic choice.

All functions, including the tractor's three gears, headlights on the bonnet, the floodlights on the cab, the rear indicators, and the flashing lights, are controlled through an app.

What Are the Different Sizes of Toy Tractors?

We stock many different tractor sizes. We usually call them scales – this means the toy matches the size of the real thing. For example, if it's 1:16 scale, it's one-sixteenth of the real tractor size. To learn more about scales, check out our handy guide.
