LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Lil' Quad
on July 2, 2005
I purchased this Lil' Quad for my nephew for his first birthday. It took him a couple weeks to figure it out, but now we can't keep him off of it. He's 1 1/2 now and has absolutely NO problem making it go. He doesn't quite understand how to steer, but we're always with him when he rides so we help -- it's never been a problem. The battery holds up very well and is SUPER easy to charge. The power cord and battery pack all fit in the seat so nothing gets lost and the seat "locks" so little hands can't get it BUT can "unlock" quickly and easy with the twist of the lock button.
My niece will be 1 this weekend and is getting her own for her birthday. She has been riding my nephews for about two months now. They are usually really good at sharing, but this is one toy we needed to have two of. (Yes, I got her this one...bought some "girly" stickers to pretty it up because I didn't want to pay the extra $20+ for the Barbie quad.)
I recommend getting a helmet for wearing...it sets good habits of helmet wearing AND when going uphill or when learning kids balance isn't that great...there is nothing on the toy that will keep them on.
Also, this is definitely for a young child. My 2 year old niece tried it when we first got it and was too big. If your child is older I'd recommend looking into something bigger as you won't get a lot of use out of this one. Also, when it says it goes two miles an hour, it really does go that slow; an older child would probably not enjoy that speed very much.
Be sure to check Walmart...when I was looking for this I ran into Walmart just to check and found it for $58.88...just bought the second one there six months later for the same price.
This was THE BEST first birthday present I've ever bought. Only problem is now I don't know how I'll top it for the 2nd and future birthdays.
