It's what pre-schoolboys' dreams are made of.

Five-year-old Wang Shuhan operates a digger on a building site in Wuhan, Hubei Province.

A dab hand behind the wheel, the gear stick, brakes and scoop are all expertly untilized by the pint-sized construction worker as he picks up and moves sand.

His father, Wang Xuebing, who works on the site, said his son became interested in driving diggers after he regularly brought him to work with him. (And because he is a little boy, and little boys love diggers).

"I sometimes explained to him the functions of the gears within the compartment, and when he was three he asked me to have a try. Amazingly he did it," he said.

Wang said junior now sees the excavator as a big toy and often pleads to drive it.

And drives it he does. Like a little champ...
