Take a look:

If your little one isn't really a luxury car kind of person, then don't despair. Along with the Merc, ALDI is also selling a V Caterpillar Electric Tractor - with a dump bucket - for $199.

Going by the response to the news on social media, if you're keen to nab these gems, you'll want to forego your usual Saturday morning sleep in (ha ha), limber up, and make sure you're adequately caffeinated so you can take on the crowds.
"There will be an all-in-brawl for these!" wrote one mum
"There's definitely going to be a line for this one!!" said another.
Fisticuffs have also been predicted. "Omg Yass Bae would slay!!" on mum added. "Get ready for a mummy ALDI punch on for this one."
Ladies, start your engines!
