Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Radio Flyer Girls Classic Dual Deck Tricycle, Pink (Toy)
I bought this for my grand daughters' 3rd birthday and it is a huge hit! She is definitely a girly-girl and is really into pink, so this hot-pink tricycle really hit a home run.
When I brought it in to the birthday party from my daughters' garage my grand daughter forgot about all of the toys she had already opened and ran to the front closet to get her coat so Pop-Pop (what she calls me) could take her outside to teach her how to ride on it. Since we had received 4 inches of snow the night before and were to get 3 more inches that morning the outside thing didn't work out so well. So she decided to ride it in the house. Running over the toys and other gifts she had already opened as well as other people at the party didn't seem to be a problem with her. However the black marks the rubber tires left on the walls were not her dad's favorite thing.
The tricycle was very easy to assemble as is very, very sturdy. With the adjustable seat and handle bars and the fact that it has a tubular steel frame and rubber tires rather than plastic, we expect this to last grand daughter #1 through to the point where she needs a two wheeler and it should still be going strong when grand daughter #2 (born last November) is ready for her first tricycle. We had purchased what is basically the same tricycle when my daughter was 3 (now she is 30) and when my kids were too old for it we gave it to a younger cousin for her children. The last time we were at her house we noticed that tricycle hanging from a ceiling hook in their garage waiting for the next generation of trike riders to enter the scene.

I am now shopping for a trike for my daughter and came across this one. Amazing that it's basically the same one my mom got me when I was three (33 years ago)! Thanks for the review - we'll be ordering this model!

I enjoyed reading your review. I bought this tricycle for my one of my granddaughters this past Christmas. The only thing I would change is your description of the color. The "trike" is not hot pink it's a deep pastel pink. It's not a big deal but it may confuse others who actually want a hot pink tricycle.
