Have you added running lights? Headlamps? Perhaps some spinners?

This is mostly just a custom paint job. My process is: take apart, light heat gun, sanding, prime w/ rustoleum 2x plastic spray paint, paint w/ the same -- the detail is done in acrylic atop spray paint, then used gloss clear top coat (also rustoleum).
These little peg perego / john deere vehicles are a little trickier to pry apart than your standard power wheels. You gotta open up the bottom to unscrew the seat, and lot of pressure-fit pieces you really have to pull at or pry with a screw driver.
But picked this up at a flea market for $60 so good deal!

Finally added umbrella for fun in the sun. Easy to adhere this type of plastic to pvc pipe using plumbers putty... which is also paintable.

Wow! I've never seen anyone do something like this with a John Deere. It's, different. Good job

Agreed, that is unique and looks great. I second the question on the tires, is that spray on bed liner?
