The Gaucho Peg Perego is proof of the old Jesuit maxim – get ‘em while they’re young and they’ll be your gas guzzling slaves for life. Or something. It’s billed as an all-terrain (snort, yeah right) high performance (7.5 mph folks) twin passenger electric children’s SUV. Make of it what you will, good people, but suffice to say that it comes with a working FM radio and a glove compartment. $999.95 (or $450.00 if you know where to look).
Unlike other ride-on vehicles that only can seat one child, this one allows two children to safely ride at the same time, up to 130 lbs. total for both riders, at three speeds: 21/2, 5, or 71/2 M.P.H (21/2 M.P.H. reverse speed). Parents may allow one, two, or all speeds using its lock-out setting. It has an accelerator pedal that responds to the lightest touch for quick starts and a separate brake pedal for reliable stops…Its rechargeable battery requires 18 hours for a full recharge.
