I am pretty handy, but the instructions that came with this product were terrible. (Worse than the kind that come with a LEGO kit for 8 year olds.)
A few things your should know...
The thing is held together by driving screws into plastic. That means the first time you put it together it will be very snug. But if you make a mistake and have to backtrack, the fit will not be as good. If there were terrific instructions, this would not be an issue.
The instructions show how the pieces fit together and in the right order. However, there are about 15 screws of about 5 sizes. The instructions leave it to your best guess which go where. So when I got to the end I had a couple of screws left and a couple of holes left and they didn't match.
Hints I can give are:
1. The 8 identical stubby screws hold the front and back decks on.
2. The front desk goes on first. I mistook the front of the diagram for the back and then had to backtrack.
3. Have a couple of extra small screws on hand.
I think anyone with average skills can assemble this, but not with an excited kid helping. My recommendation is to go through all the instructions with all the parts and screws in one pile. As you go through more them into another pile. Then at the end, you can see what screws and holes are left and you can rethink where they go. Then get the kid to "help" once you know where everything goes.
Called the company Peg Perego, and they just informed me since I bought through Amazon.com there is NO WARRANTY! I am furious. Amazon never disclosed this! I assumed(shame on me) it would have a year warranty as the manufacturer states. So now I am stuck with a brand new, non-operational made in China piece of $500- crap. Way to ruin Christmas Amazon
UPDATE: 4 years later, this toy still works and is still in great shape. My son has ridden many, many, many miles on it and just loves it. It was so expensive, but worth every penny for the enjoyment that it has brought him.
First I'll start out by saying that my 5 year old is the primary one who rides this quad. He is a lightweight (about 4 lbs#, so the battery runs all day. His bigger #about 80 lbs# brother can ride it too with shorter battery life. I've ridden it too and I weigh about 130. I don't think the battery would work long, but it handled me just fine. AW, my 5 yo son loves, loves it. The happiness on his face is worth a lot. The extra speed #7 mph) is much more fun than the typical 5 mph, and my 5 yo can maneuver just fine. We won't go back to a 12 volt now.
That being said, I do have some complaints. Building it wasn't the easiest experience mainly because the directions did not indicate which screw to use where. That led me to removing a few and replacing them with a different one...until I needed it somewhere else. Everything else was fairly easy to follow.
Another thing is the durability. The first day of riding, the flag broke, which made my 5 yo cry until I told him he had a flag to play with.Read more ›
