Gift Ideas for a tractor-crazed 4-year-old?

OK, we've got about a month to come up with a unique gift for Li'l Lildog's (might as well call him Li'l Bigdog) 4th birthday. We thought we'd ask the folks who know tractor mania if you have any original, unique ideas of things we could get this diminutive tractor jockey.

I have seen ERTL cubs on ebay. Might be a bit nice for a 4 year old though.

Make sure it's red this time, not green. LOL

Why not get him his own Cub Cadet? and get him started on restoring it early. I'm sure Dad and Grandpa would pitch in and help out :D

Boys like is real tools and a tool box - from the $1.00 and up box at the hardware store - actually I would add in some good quality tools that he could lend to his mother from time to time.

How about a book or two featuring different antique and modern tractors. Maybe a book featuring restored pickups. These would be mostly picture books.

I am clueless on the concept of age-appropriate toys.

How about one of the jig jaw puzzles with a Cub onit?
