Not ideal for an audacious 18m old. This push and ride is not as safe as I thought. When my daughter rides it, stops and stand up she puts her weight on the handles and several time the car tips forward. This causes the car to flip forward and I am concerned that she will hurt herself. Wish grandpa didn’t throw the packaging away so i could return product. I bought another push and ride car and ensured it had a front lip that catches the car from flipping. Good luck.
