PLASTIC, just take note of that!
on January 8, 2010
We bought this for our daughter (2 1/2) from Santa. Hubby put it together the night before, took about 15-20 minutes. The bad thing is that you can't switch from one position to another without needing a screwdriver and taking out screws and moving them to another place. So it's either a trike or a rocking toy. Also, take note it is plastic - including the wheels. This means there's no traction for riding around the house. On both wood floors and carpet, our daughter is spinning wheels a lot of the time. And when I push her around, the wheels just slide across the floor instead of turning. We bought this for seriously DIRT cheap, as in under twenty dollars, so I can't really complain. I think it will be better outside on the pavement once the weather is nice again. The peddles are a bit far from the seat too, so if your little one is short, that might be an issue. Our daughter is average and has to sit on the edge of the seat to reach the peddles. Just a few facts for anyone considering this. I would reccommend a higher quality honestly, unless you can get it cheap like we did. Metal and real tires are going to last a lot longer and be less frustrating to the little one. Good luck!
