The wooden version is very retro and cute, but metal version is a bit larger. My son is tall and will be able to use it longer so that is the one that we are going to keep.
Seat: Metal version has a hard plastic seat, and the screws go through it so they show. The seat has 3 heights. The lowest height is slightly higher than the seat on the wooden version. The seat is also slightly further back from the handlebars than the seat on the wooden version
Wooden version has a lightly padded seat, and the screws do not show.
Handlebars: Metal version has Y shaped bars. The hand grips are already attached. The streamers are made of red and white ribbon.
Wooden version has a straight handlebar. The hand grips are a cheaper plastic and are difficult to slide onto the bar. The streamers are a red vinyl that doesn't hang as nicely.
Bell: Both versions have the same bell.
"Tires": Very similar between the two. The metal version has wheels that are hard and smooth. The wooden version has wheels that are a bit softer and have slight grooves. We have only used the trikes indoors so I don't know how well they would hold up outside.
Overall build: The wooden version does have a wooden body, steering column, and front axle with metal pieces to connect them all. The metal version has a metal body and connection pieces with a plastic front axle.
Assembly: The metal trike was easier to put together, but neither was super difficult. I did end up with an unexpected gap between the frame and the steering column on the wooden trike, but I don't know if that is a defect or not.
I didn't have any problems at all putting it together like some of the reviewers did. I did it by myself (without my husband's help) and in about 30 minutes.
It's very light and fits in my trunk so I can take it anywhere easily - which is good because Serenity loves it so much. She hasn't tipped it yet, so I would say that it's sturdy. My friend's older kids (6 & 9) think it's really cool and they want to ride it too! People have already asked me where I found it!
I would recommend the Scoot-About as a wonderful 1st birthday or Christmas present!
However, it might be helpful for some parents to hear that my son is around 30" and is really too short to ride this. He is small for his age... measured 29.5 a couple of weeks before we gave it to him. It's been another month and I think he's grown, and still can't really reach the floor if he's on the seat. On the other hand, I don't know that there are any similar options for shorter kids, so no regrets about buying this one, just thought that might be helpful info for some parents.
P.S. NEVER do the tricycle with a push-stick, it teaches your kids that a bike is a stroller and to be a passenger rather than a rider
