Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
The walker is quiet and light on our wood floors. It was easy to assemble: only seven screws. Even before we assembled it, our 11-month-old was fascinated by the different shapes and colors.

The line "Always wear shoes" in the warnings is because the rider or walker's feet are very close to the wheels, and could get pinched if you rolled or scooted the bike backward.

It's not obvious, but I think this toy should be used as a walker before it is used as a bike. Our 11-month-old has not been able to dismount from riding without falling. (Update: by 12-and-a-half months, she was able to mount and dismount with ease. She's cruising now but not walking yet.)

The conversion between walker and rider is smooth and easy. From walker to rider, there is a potential pinch point near the seat lock release tabs for the adult who is doing the conversion; but that place should be inaccessible to the child user.

The sounds are engaging for our daughter and not annoying to us. She especially likes to press the horn. We wonder whether that's a product of her genes or her midtown Manhattan environment.

Update: after a month and a half, our daughter still likes this toy, but she prefers to use the Plan Toy Baby Walker. The Plan Toy is heavier and impossible to turn; but perhaps she likes that predictability. Or it may be that the Plan Toy's handle is much wider than the end of the Rocktivity's seat.

Update: now that our daughter is walking, she prefers this toy to the Plan Toy Baby Walker. However, because of its width, the toy is hard to use to scoot. Our daughter tends to just climb onto the toy and sit and press the buttons.

The toy has a "Demo" and a "Play" mode. In demo mode, the buttons produce the same tunes over and over. In play mode, the sounds produced by the toy become a little unpredictable: the music will play longer; sometimes actuated by simply bumping the handlebars; after the first brief period of inactivity, the toy will play a short tune to remind us that it's still available.

This scooter does make some noise, the key starting makes noise, the buttons and bells make noise so this toy is not for the faint of heart. But boy is it a blast! He loved it, I've uploaded a picture on the product page so you can see; your child will be just as thrilled. This thing makes real engine noises, he turns the key over and over. Probably not a toy to take to Grandma's unless she is 70 going on 17! LOL. Definitely recommend for your toddler.

As soon as my husband was finished assembling this toy (which was very easy, just a few snapping parts and a couple of screws), my 9 month old son was playing with it. It was "love at first sight" for him! It's easy to switch back and forth from walker to ride-on, and my son doesn't seem to have much trouble climbing on and off the seat (though he hasn't quite figured out how to push on his own). It moves really quickly as a walker and is very slippery on tile/vinyl flooring- so be careful and keep close to your little one if you're not on carpet. I find carpet is best for this toy. The music is cute, the light-up elefun button entertaining for my son, the engine sounds intriguing to him, and he loves to honk the horn. I really appreciate having a volume control for it too. Overall- definitely recommend!

It's another ride toy for your baby/toddler! There are so many of these, and there aren't too many features that set this one apart from others I've seen/tried. You can switch it from a walker to a ride-on, and it's cool that it's a motorcycle. And it even plays some popular music!

But:
-- the toy is WAY too sensitive. If it barely moves, it will break into song. It seems like it will break into song even if you don't touch it. Great for your baby, not so great when you have older kids that run into everything, too. Of course, you can just switch the power off, but who actually does that?
-- the demo mode button is RIGHT THERE. If you have a baby who loves switches like mine, you might find yourself stuck in demo mode, so the same songs will play over and over again. If you're not in demo mode, there are some more songs that play over and over again.
-- Follow the instructions. I thought I was taking a short cut and accidentally skipped a step when fastening the wheels on, and almost needed to break the toy apart to fix it. Luckily, my husband is handy and was able to remove the yellow "bolts" without breaking them.

Like I said, though, it's pretty cool that this toy plays more than your standard ABC's and Twinkle Twinkle. Some of the notable tunes are Smash Mouth's Walking on the Sun, The Beatles' Ticket to Ride, I Like to Move It Move It (from Madagascar) and Life is a Highway (which i know from the movie Cars), along with Wheels on the Bus and When the Saints Go Marching In. Plus, it's a motorcycle, which makes your toddler look all the more cooler as he zips through the house.

ETA: I've had a few people email me about how my husband successfully removed the yellow bolts-- I guess I'm not the only person who skipped a step in installation! He wrote a little description of how he did it, so I figured I'd post that here for people who need help:

I used a long flat screw driver to reach inside to push the wheel out while at the same time using another flat tool to pry the wheel out from the outside. To get at the inside, I had to slip the flat screw driver in at a seem where two pieces of plastic came together. It took a considerable amount of force. So much so, that I thought that I would end up breaking some part of the plastic.

My son loves his motorcycle! He loves to walk around the house pushing this everywhere he goes. He also loves pushing the horn and dancing to the music. I think once he's older he's going to love riding it around the house too! I'm happy with my on a whim decision to purchase this for my son. All of the fun and giggles he has had playing with this has more than covered what I paid!

Plays actual songs, not the annoying kid sings that most toys do. Perfect for my one year old nephew that loves music.

I got this for my 20 month old boy. He is kind of big for his age and will only be able to ride for a few more months on it. So I would recommend that this is good until about the age of 2. The bike snaps together and has 7 screws to hold it together. It is very easy to assemble and takes about 5 to 10 minutes to put together. My son loved it as soon as I put it down he hopped on it and took off. He loved pushing the buttons and making the different sounds. The are about 15 to 20 sounds/songs and they get kind of old pretty fast to me but he loves them. The set can be adjusted to ride or flip up as a handle for those just learning to walk. Overall a fun toy that kids will love and also something to hold onto for those learning to walk.

Four stars and maybe getting five down the road depending on longevity and interest, this is an adorable brightly colored toddler vehicle.

While it can be used as a walker toy, it definitely holds a gleeful little one when used as a rider.

The horn, the handlebars, the music, and the varoom are just perfect for getting around town, an apartment or home!

Not long to put together, batteries included, 'we' both expect this 'Rocktivity Walk N Roll' to provide many hours of safe travel!

Note...weight limit is 42 pounds...so consider this when ordering.

I hate this thing! Horrible trike! It doesn't have enough room for their feet. He is constantly running his feet over and will no longer sit on it because he is afraid. It is also horrible walker! If you have hardwood floors this thing moves at top speed. My son would run trying to keep up. We were always next to him so he didn't hurt himself but he could have easily landed on his face! I gave it 2 stars because he really like the sounds.

We gave this to our son for his first birthday. He likes to push the buttons and play the (very annoying after a while) songs, but he can't ride it easily because the wheels are placed wide and right in the way of where his feet need to be. We used to have a Step Start Walk and Ride also by Playskool, and I thought I wanted something better...well this wasn't it. In comparison, the Rocktivity is built less sturdily...thinner plastic, etc...(for a good idea of the difference I'll note that we had to run over the Step Start to kill it...and now I keep ushering my 3 year old away from the Rocktivity because I just know he'll damage it if he rides it)., it is also much harder to adjust from riding to walking and back (you have to undo screws to change positions), and it is harder for the little guy to push it along when riding. This isn't terrible, but it is NOT the one I'd choose if I were still in the market for a rider/walker toy.
