Has turned our 18-month old into a mechanic!
on March 20, 2008
If this stroller would stay together I would rate it as 5-star, because it is really cute, and my daughter loves it. It's the perfect size for her corolle baby doll.
However. The first day we put it together (Christmas) one of the wheels kept falling off. And the structural cross-bars wouldn't stay connected to the legs of the stroller. Now, 3 months later, two of the wheels fall off constantly (literally minutes after we put them back on), creating an annoyance since it is her favorite toy. Meaning in the average day we probably fix this thing 15-20 times. My daughter still pushes it around, and when she can't get the wheels on by herself, she pushes it without the wheels (!!), and puts the wheels in the seat with baby. Unfortunately the two that fall off most frequently are on the same side of the stroller. Can you picture this?
As a result of this experience my daughter has learned to be self-sufficient and try to fix the stroller herself, and when she can't she asks for "help". The positive side of a malfunctioning toy.
This stroller would be better if the wheels connected to another piece on the other side of the legs so they did not pop off so easily, and if the crossbars and other pieces actually clicked into place, rather than just sliding into position, because they just don't stay put. Cute, but flimsy and a big ol' pain in the butt.
