This is a very well built trike. We bought it for our first grandson but I think it will last through all grandchildren we may have (and possibly great grandchildren). Everything is built of heavy duty materials and quality craftsmanship. Even my son in law rode it and he is a BIG man. And it is ACTUALLY made in the U.S.....no kidding. Huge plus there. This may be a bit more expensive than some of the others but you will never have to buy another one unless they start fighting over it.
Awesome trike for the money. We had one just like it for our son when he was 3 and he rode it a long time, then passed it on to my daycare kids and it still goes! It is now 12 yrs old. I hope to get half the life out of this one!!
