I have big kids (95% on height) so I figured I should buy the big one so they can grow into it. When I first bought it for them they pushed it around with their hands, but quickly got bored because their legs were too short to ride on it. Now that they are 2.4 years old and their legs are long enough, they are more excited to ride a tricycle or a scooter, and this is too 'sedate' for them.
So this is what I would recommend. Measure the inseam of your kid's legs. If they are 14" or longer, then buy the large size. But if their legs are shorter and you want them to ride on it now, then buy the small size.
Now, something to think about - I keep the wheelys outside - so my kids have a lot of options of things to ride on. So they hardly ever choose the wheelys. If this was an 'inside toy' with no other exciting options to ride on, then they would probably use it more.
So, to summarize:
- legs (inseam) shorter than 13" - buy the small.
- legs (inseam) longer than 14" - buy the large
- if your kids are already on tricycles, scooters or anything that goes a bit faster, they will be bored with this outside - and I would plan on it being an 'inside toy' where it will be used more.
- if you are going to use it inside, then I would buy the smaller one because it will take up less space and will be more maneuverable.
- Basically I should have bought the small so they could have used it when they were younger and not yet ready for faster toys.
I hope this is helpful to you!
She does LOVE the Wheely Bug, as do I, but I did want to clear up any confusion. The large sized bug should be purchased for 3+ year old children and the small sized bug for younger toddlers to make riding the toy possible. Now, there might be exceptions and my daughter is by no means a risk taker or dare devil, but if you would like to see your younger toddler ride the bug...I would opt for a small. Sure, it looks small, but consider that they must straddle the plump little bug and have their tiny feet flat on the floor to really maneuver the adorable thing. If your child really prefers to push toys, the large is the way to go and perhaps he/she will ride it once they are older. I am glad that I went with the large for this reason.
Great toy that really is very attractive to young children. I am very happy with my purchase, but do feel the bug is slightly over priced when considering its simplicity...no flashing lights, sounds, motor. All in all, the bug is incomparable to other push toys, ride-on toys, and any other toys in general. This bug will be a winner in your home, guaranteed.
Now on to the information that I hope will save another family from going through the guesswork of Small vs. Large -
Our daughter just turned one. She is 32" tall and has a 10" inseam. After reading the various reviews available we erred on the side of caution and bought the Small version of this Wheely Mouse. When we opened it it looked terribly small, and after trying to seat her on it and get her to move it around, it was apparent that we should have purchased the Large. Her feet were flat on the floor with knees bent and legs outstretched. The seat depth was insufficient - as soon as she slipped back even a little on the back while digging her feet in to move sideways or backwards she slid right off the back. She hulked over the top of it to the point that when she leaned forward to get it moving she practically fell over the top of the handle. So back in the box it went and we ordered the Large. I kept the Small to use as a comparison in the hopes that my pictures and review would help another parent figure out which one to buy.
The first picture is her seated on the Large - notice her feet DO touch, albeit not very much. She still has plenty of leverage to push herself about on the hard floors. I can see it taking a few months to get to the point of being able to ride it on the carpet though. Second picture is her on the Small. Notice sprawled legs, bent knees, and feet flat on the floor.Read more ›
