    Well my dad picked this up on ebay for my 2 daughters, but we all know its really for me. Does anyone have any more info on these? or pix? And since I suck at the internet I can only get one picture to load.

    I think he gave his left nut for it to. My mom wouldn't let him stop bidding on it. No markings to the make. It's wierd chrome square bezel, FJ25 rear wheel wells.

    I found some pictures on ebay quite a while ago and that one looks a lot like the one you got.

    Some more Pics on my Page for Cruising Kids. ;)

    The Silver Peg Perego on the page belongs to my nephew.....but he´s now getting to large .....so maybe next year the thing will get a tube frame and a nice scooter engine.... :)

    If you got more pictures i would like to add them to my page if you allow me.

    WOW! We don't have children but would LOVE one of those.
    Killer find by Grandpa! I'm betting his grin was
    about as wide as the grandchildren's smiles.
    It's great it's in an appreciative home.
    :cheers:

    The paint looks exactly the same. Only difference I can see is the front bumper, or it could be a steering link for all I know. Might have been fixed.

    I'll bet Toyota will start marketing FJ cruiser peddlers in the states in the very near future.

    One of the aftermarket bodywork shops should do some of them.......
    Brandnew made and fresh painted they would easyli sell for around 200$ or more!

    Does anyone have any fresh info on these pedal cars? Mine is the camo one. It has crossed my mind to sell it and buy a Metaltech roll cage for my FJ40 to protect the kids. It just sits in my garage.
