We bought this for our 2.5 year old son for Christmas and he spent the winter months pedaling around the house. Then once the weather broke it became an outdoor “bike”. This thing has withstood some PUNISHMENT from our now 3 year old. Even when one of the pedals came off, I submitted a claim on Berg’s website and they had a new one sent within a week. We’re looking at buying another one for our daughter. Some kids toys are worth skimping on, but we realized early on that riding toys aren’t one of them. We’ve definitely got the value for what we paid on this one.
