Brad Pitt

When Maddox Jolie-Pitt wants to take a spin on his bike, you can bet it won't be on a Schwinn. The oldest son of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie received a Suzuki DRZ-125 for his 11th birthday, complete with a newly built motocross trail on his family's French estate.

An insider told Britain's The Sun, "Brad's always been a generous dad and as Maddox has shown a keen interest in bikes, he thought he may as well get him started."

Base price of the machine is just under 3K, though the doting dad may have splurged for a few extras, such as tricked out wheels.

To maximize the dirt biking experience, the "Moneyball" actor reportedly had the trail builders add jumps and puddles so Maddox could get his clothes more muddy. It's unlikely he or the boy's mom Angelina Jolie will have to deal with the ground-in dirt on his jeans, leaving the cleaning task to a laundress or just replacing his pants after each wear.

Pitt is not the only celebrity parent who has pampered his child with a luxurious present. Here are some other posh gifts that could make you wish your mom or dad were a movie star.

The Beckham Boys' Tree Tent

Speaking of Posh (Spice, that is), Victoria Beckham reportedly purchased a $50,000 backyard tree tent for her boys -- Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David -- in 2007. The limited edition play house was offered by luxury department store Neiman Marcus, whose catalogue described it as having a "nine-foot-diameter hardwood floor and groovy round mattress inside."

Tom and Suri Cruise's Excellent Ice Skating Adventure

What would a spoiled celebrity kids' list be without a mention of Suri Cruise? Rumors that the daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise received a $100,000 pony and diamond studs for the spendy holiday were dashed by Gossip Cop, but her famous dad did treat his darling daughter and then-wife Katie Holmes to a VIP ice skating episode at Rockefeller Center last December. The "Mission Impossible" star rented out a private area called the "Igloo" for an entire afternoon, making it off limits to other paying customers. And instead of purchasing pedestrian snacks, the cozy trio had hot chocolate and sweets brought in from trendy fooderies, according to the "NY Daily News."

Casper Smart's Birthday Car

Okay, so he's technically not J.Lo's son, but he could be. The "Love Don't Cost a Thing" singer's 18-years-younger boyfriend Casper Smart received a souped-up white Dodge Ram truck for his 25th birthday in April. Though a relatively cheap ride by celebrity standards, the young Romeo had been dating the 43-year-old Lopez for less than six months.
