The Italian-made Freester has a 28cc two-stroke master, centrifugal clutch a top speed of 20kmh and a price of $4000. Complete with safety harness and disc brakes, these are exquisite machines for the very young. The power of the motor can be governed in line with the age of the child and a tank of gas lasts 90 minutes.

Suitable for children 3 years end up, with an RRP of AUS$1899. Both cards are available from Global Discovery (08) 83540444.
