Salutations: No pwob at all - it was a happy learning experience for me too.. In the end, I think it's a question of 'perception' and branding for your young fella.. The truth is that if you offer the wheels to the boy and say "look - here's a car you can have for free - you won't hurt yourself or anyone you love in it and the back seat is very comfortable and large enough for two.." then say nothing else and smile knowingly - not only will you really catch his attention - but you will forever link safety with with fun.. .. :) ..
