(i bought 2 of the things)
it is NOT for any kid under 5, unless they are huge
my kids turned 5, they are average height, boys.
with seat as low as possible they cannot get feet to the ground
it is also heavy, guessing about 21 lbs, the kids are only 35
instructions are terrible, but at least i can put a bike together
couple things would be hard without bike experience though
inserting handlebar stem, ("quill" style) (it also comes with a plastic piece on the end that they do not mention but you have to cut it off)
installing front wheel with the 'lawyer lips' locking clip
getting training wheels level
even after assembling, they are both too hard to pedal
either the chain is too tight, or the back wheel bearings
or the chain is rubbing the chain guard or something
either one of which is very hard to do the FIRST TIME
''decorative parts not installed right'' - the front 'go go thomas' piece of art is supposed to be held on with zip ties, one was missing
chain guard was missing one attachment screw
the seats were hard to get tight, though i finally got that right
it;s not clear which way is right and which way is wrong for installing front wheel to fork
manual does not say
you have to have a lot of tools
adjustable wrench[wheels, pedals]
cutter [zip tie trimmer]
razor blade cutter[all over bike to get wrap off]
and amazon ANNOYINGLY packs the whole bike carton (which was able to get here from CHINA!) in ANOTHER box with a ton of padding and paper around it
I took off 1 star b/c, while it was super easy to put together, the noise maker on the front won't stay on the front. This particularly problematic b/c it is the kid's favorite thing about the bike.
1. Very attractive - bright colors..and realistic portrayal of Thomas. My son loved it instantly
2. Solid construction.. Will easily keep going for 4-5 yrs
1. Horrible user instructions.. I mean really horrible.. the box had a Dynacraft generic booklet which did not contain anything pertaining to this bike!
2. Putting it together is a PITA.. trust me.. it is not at all intuitive.. and I consider myself fairly good at DIY stuff.
The steering parts were loose in the box.. Finally figured out the pieces and got them together.
It took me a while to figure out the pedals - The left pedal tightens on anticlockwise rotation.
3. After putting everything else together when I went to assemble the wheel, I realized that the slot in the front fork just would not take the front wheel axle.. it was about 3 mm too small. I'm convinced it is some kind of a manufacturing defect.
My kid really loved the bike.. so I tried my best to make it fit.. but it did not work. Dis-assembly and proper boxing took up another 2 hours.
I really appreciate Amazon though for making returns simple.
To my shock the second bike was in worst condition! There was a bigger and deeper scrape in the same location of the stem. There was also a small scrape on the seat. Most of the bike parts had protection from scrapes, but not this particular spot. Since the scrape is in the same location it's my understanding that it has to do with how the bike is being placed in the box. The bike comes mostly put together, except for the front wheel, pedals, handlebar, Thomas face, seat, and training wheels. I think the uncovered pedal cranks is what digs into the stem because that's the only that is near when removing it from the box. So I decided to open the first bike to compare which bike was in better condition. Of course while on my porch inspecting the UPS man comes for the package. I ask him to come back later, but he tells me he will return on Monday. So for now the first one is the one I kept, and the second one is waiting for return.
Once assembled the bike is nice looking, The chain covers and rain guards are plastic. Real rubber wheels where you can put air inside. I always have problems with these easily adjustable seats, with the tightening, but that's my problem. I probably would have preferred unadjustable seats, but most new bikes are probably like that. The training wheels, I'm having a bit of trouble being completely flush to the ground, and they are plastic if I can recall. The thomas head makes sounds which my son loves.
Long story short if you can go check it out in person it would be a better idea, or you will run the risk of having the same surprise I did.

Only thing is the Handel bars tend to rotate out of sequence with the front wheel
