Kids hate cleaning their room.  If you’ve got one of those troublesome tikes then you know that the process to convince them to do so can be as agonizing as pulling teeth.  Unless of course you’ve got one of these, the Working Pedal Powered Forklift.

It’s made from ABS plastic and can lift objects up to 6.5lbs in weight.  Just like the life sized version, it will tilt backwards to compensate for the load.  Unfortunately, the fork lift is hand cranked, so pedaling will only get your kid from point A to point B.  Nevertheless, the plastic tires are outfitted with rubber grips for added traction and the seat is adjustable allowing it to accommodate up to a 55-inch, 110lb operator.

So what happens when your kid out grows this?  You return it.  Hammacher offers a lifetime guarantee which allows you to get your money back if the product ever disappoints you.  Good, because at $320 you might wanna put that towards your kid’s college fund and not a senseless, albeit cool toy.

Now, where is the adult version?
