This review is from: Pewi Ybike Ride On Toy and Walking Buddy (Sports)
Bought this for my grandson who is about 25 pounds. We gave it to him around his first birthday. The first couple times he played with it he used it as a walker. When he got the idea that he could sit on it, he lit up and didn't want to put it away. There was no learning period. He understood right away how to move with it. The wheels move easily, and much to his delight, he can go quite fast on it. The big problem is that if there is a bump in the sidewalk, he tips head first. We thought he was going to lose a tooth this week. A bike helmet doesn't protect his mouth. Can't believe no one else has had this problem.

actually any bike will tip head first if u hit any bump moving forward...no offense intended but that's pretty much a known fact for any bike rider...sorry

The "big wheels" my boys rode in the early 80s did not tip. This little trike goes over quite easily. We've restricted its use to the basement. I'm not offended. Just sharing what our experience has been. I don't think a toy for such a young child should be so tippy!

The times I've seen this demonstrated it's been indoor use only not sure I'm not sure I would want something like this to be used outside since it's not a real bike it's more like a modern take on a walker. Just a thought.

Your suggestion of "indoor use only" is wise, though I don't believe it is marketed as such. The bike looks very inviting as a ride-on, and that's where it becomes a problem. If it is only used as a walker, inside or out, it shouldn't be a problem. My grandson progressed quite quickly, because of this toy, from needing a walker to wanting to ride. We had to take it away from him. That's a lot of money for a toy that was only used a few weeks. Great fun while it lasted!

N.K Lam, PREACH. My child will get hurt on a padded couch. Come on man! Things happen! Don't hate on a great toy, I am just looking to buy it and I think these are a little petty!
