Overall aesthetics are nice but the big problem with this scooter is the wide wheelbase. Son's heels keep getting run over when he tries to scoot. Returned for a refund w/ no problems.

My review is essentially the same as many other reviewers: Nicely built, sturdy toy that you'd expect from Hape, but sadly essentially unusable. It seems hard to imagine this toy was product-tested by kids as my daughter is only able to ride it scooting backward, otherwise the rear wheels run over her feet. All they'd have to do is put the narrow wheel base in the back and the wide wheel base in the front and the problem would be solved. Sad since they make such great toys but pass on this one as its poor design makes the price tag not worth it.

Love the Hape Co. and their products for our baby daughter transitioning into a toddler. Our gal is a bit of an action / adrenaline junkie. This scoot toy would seem the perfect way to let loose all that energy.

Overall this is a solid toy, relatively easy to assemble. Unfortunately the steering is misaligned about 15-degrees (wheels point more to the right). Can't be fixed and returning. Poor quality control for a normally high-quality company. Cheaply made in China, not Switzerland.

This product did not work out for us, but others may not have the same issue. Sad. Will likely consider the metal red tricycle in a few months...

I got this for my daughter when she was about 16 months old. She took to it right away. She's now almost two and still rides it occasionally, though she prefers a trike. It handles really well. She was slow to walk, and started to walk shortly after we got this. Her grandmother commented that she thought that if my daughter had had this earlier, she might have walked earlier. Eh, I don't know about that, but I include her comment in this review, fwiw. Definitely she could have enjoyed this from a much earlier age. We use it mostly indoors and a little on pavement. But I am careful about how much wear it gets outdoors, because it's seriously so cute and I want to preserve it (and maybe pass it on to her child!).

We bought this for our 11mo old (at the time) and she loves it! I was a little worried she wouldn't be able to use it because she's a pretty small kid but it was the perfect size! She is able to reach the floor and push herself on it and she can also climb on and off by herself without any trouble.

My only complaint is that when the item arrived it had scratches in the wood in several places. Nothing too heinous but when you buy something new you expect it to be in perfect condition. If I had time to return it and get a new one I would have, but alas, I did not. Amazon was very helpful though and offered a partial reimbursement. All in all I am satisfied with the product!

This ride on looks great, but it's almost impossible to use.
We got it as a gift for our son's first birthday, and he's been trying really hard to use it. But when he tries to push himself forward, the rear wheels run over his feet! He even learned how to ride it backwards, or standing up (which is basically just walking with that thing between his legs...), that's how much he wanted to use it!
It's not a cheap toy, which doubles my disappointment.

I bought this for my one-year old boy's birthday and couldn't be happier with it. Hape delivers once again, an affordable and well-designed toy that takes a lot of use and abuse. My son is small for his age and was able to reach the floor as soon as we gave it to him, although at 16 months now he uses it a LOT more than he did at 12 mo. He's able to steer easily and really scoots around the whole house; easily going from carpet to hardwood with no problems.

I couldn't be happier with this product. We were looking for a (not too obnoxious) sit and scoot toy for him. We bought it for our almost one year old son. It is the perfect size. It is sleek and sturdy and took about 10 minutes to assemble. It is excellent quality. He was interested in it right away, sat and scooted. It is simple and functional.

I purchased this item because the product review said it was made in the USA. When it arrived, it clearly stated on the box that it was made in China! I was looking for a good product for my grandson to enjoy and although I'm sure he would have enjoyed it, I did not want something made in China! I immediately returned the product.

Construction quality is very very poor! i had to return 2 items to finally find one where the handle bar was actually in a decent perpendicular alignment with the major axis of the scooter (in reality it's still skewed!). On top of that, the scooter is somehow wobbly and i'm not sure how long the wheel joints will last. I would strongly NOT recommend this product for the price (probably even $10 would be too much for this very poorly construct scooter).
