Beautiful car, but barely moves.
on December 27, 2013
I purchased this little car for my almost 3 year old for Christmas. It is beautiful and we were so excited. She can barely move it, which didn't concern me since she is young and not good at pedaling yet. However, when my very athletic 4 year old son got it to drive it, and could barely move it I knew it was no good, and she would never be able to drive it if he couldn't. It's extremely heavy, and the pedals do not rotate much so there is just not enough force to move it. At one point he managed to get going but when he slowed down to steer it was a struggle to get going again. Maybe if kids got used to it they would enjoy it, but I know my daughter, who is not athletic, will not be able to handle it. The reviews are outstanding on this item, which was the ultimate reason we decided to get it. Other people obviously had a much better experience. That all being said, Amazon is, so far, standing by their product. I called and they are sending a UPS truck to pick up the item and they gave me an instant credit for the item, as long as we follow through on returning it. I was assured that the cost to return will not be my responsibility and I even was told they will credit me for the cost of a huge box to ship it back. As long as all this remains true, I am once again pleased with amazon. It's situations like this that make me shop with them. So to sum up, disappointed with this car very much, but thankful that Amazon will make it right.
