Prince George drives around in a $200 toy tractor

Prince George has become a little boy before our eyes, and like other tots his age, he's taken a shine to trucks and tractors. This particular affinity is also something he likely inherited from his motor-loving dad, Prince William. The adorable young royal has even scored his first set of wheels: a $200 toy tractor.

George, who turned two in July, loves driving the mini truck around his country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, The Sun reports.

His parents William and Kate have given their first-born the freedom to experiment with the tractor, which has a front loader and a tipping bucket.

The toy is made by agricultural company John Deere; there are several different models of the children's toy online and all are designed to help develop children's motor and pedalling skills.

The company holds a royal warrant to supply the Queen, while Her Majesty's granddaughter Zara Phillips also acts as a John Deere brand ambassador.

Last week during an engagement in North Wales, Kate, 33, revealed that her son is "obsessed" with tractors and anything that has "big wheels."

The duchess' little boy also seems to be following in his father's footsteps and is showing an interest in helicopters.

Before moving to London and Norfolk, the Prince was based in Anglesey with his wife Kate, where he worked as an RAF search and rescue pilot. William, 33, now volunteers as a pilot for charity East Anglian Air Ambulance.

"William used to fly us around when he lived and worked up here [in North Wales] and I was telling him about the new helicopters," said Pauline Hallett of Ogwen Mountain Rescue.

"Catherine then said how much George loved them. He knows all the different colours and asks her about all the parts. She laughed and said she tells George to ask Daddy as she has no idea."

There is one passion that Kate is hoping George won't inherit from his dad though. Last month the Duchess admitted that she is "filled with horror" every time William goes for a spin on his motorbike.

"I'm terrified," said Kate during an engagement in St Andrews, Scotland. "Hopefully, I'm going to keep George off it!"
