I would probably give it a miss until he is older, they can be quite delicate and temperamental at times! So unless you are like me and enjoy sitting at the table with a little tool kit cleaning and repairing  all the fiddly bits, which in my experience is around (3 hrs repairing for 1 hrs running) lol..., then i would defo wait until he is older.

You can get some rapid battery ones these days, just make sure you get an extra battery or two. Smile
