All you Dads need to watch this. Roary is like top gear for kids. My 20 month old is bowld over and transfixed when its shown on Channel 5. Father Christmas managed to find every thing Roary this year and it was worth every penny. Just cant wait till he is old enough to talk about the weekly copy of Auto Car.
