Great Purchase but Tall and Top Heavy,
This review is from: Radio Flyer Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycle (Toy)
We purchased this as a Christmas gift for our then three year-old son. Overall we really like it, but it has a few issues:
1. As stated by some of the other reviewers, this tricycle is on the tall side. Our son is average height and it took him until he was three and a half to really be able to ride it on his own.
2. It is heavy and sturdy--which we like--but it took a helpful push when he was just starting out.
3. It is top heavy and will tip right over when making sharp or sudden turns at speed. So we worked with our son to teach him to slow down for turns and it's no longer a problem.
Now that he is four, he loves riding it everywhere. He also likes sitting on the back "deck" and pushing himself backwards or having someone use the dual deck to ride behind him. While the Radio Flyer has its issues, we still think it was a great purchase and will last to make a great hand-me-down for our daughter.
