Make your little digger’s dreams come true with a ride-on electric wheeled excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment and Dake Toys.

Modeled after full-sized Volvo machines, the really mini excavator is powered by two rechargeable 12-volt, 35-watt batteries. It features an easy push button start with machine noises upon start-up. Two toggles easily switch between two speed modes and forward or reverse.

The comfortable cab features one opening door, a leather seat with a safety belt, and a multifunctional media player with FM radio, USB, auxiliary input and Bluetooth. LED lights in the front will keep your kids playing long into the night, while back wheel suspension offers a smooth ride. Three levers control the boom, arm and bucket. A parental remote control can also control the excavator and its digging functions.

The mini machine retails for approximately $529.00 at toy stores worldwide.
