John Deere Gator

We went to the flea market this weekend to look around. I was looking to see if they had some hens and a ride on toy for Hunter. I had looked at the store, but they are so expensive for a good one, anyway. The first flea market is huge, but didn't have anything. The second one was an indoor flea market and kind of small but they have a lot of baby/toddler things outside.


We found a John Deer Gator ride on toy for $5. It is the kind you have to push with your feet on the floor. It had buttons on it for sounds, but they didn't work. We looked it over and it is really sturdy. Better made than something we could have gotten at the store for a reasonable price. It was really well-used, but still worth more than the $5 price tag. So, we got it.


Hunter was with us and he cried the whole way home because he wanted to play with it. He just didn't understand he needed to stay in his car seat. As soon as we got home we cleaned it up and let him play with it. Later his big brother put batteries in it to see if it would work, and it did! It has cute sounds and a song that keeps getting stuck in my head, lol!


He loves his new toy, it even has a tailgate he can put up and take down. He took one of the puppies for a ride. I'm not so sure the puppy liked it. I am so thankful I was able to find him a John Deere Gator!

What a great buy! When my boys were little they had a little car similar to that. They loved it and rode it constantly!!

So cute with the puppy in the back! Love flea markets. I'd spend everyday going to them if I had the time and my wallet could handle it.

The puppy is too cute! Your right, our little boys do look a lot like! I don't know why Nate has so little hair. The older 3 all had a ton by this age. Nate will be two May 1st! How old is your youngest
