Comes in 3 parts... you easily put together... glides a fairly long distance. No sharp edges. I purchased for my 5 and 8 year old grandsons - so it's nice there are 2 different colors. One blue, one red (MIGHT be considered a little dark pink)... They will probably last longer than they have interest in them. I never hesitate to update my reviews should new info seem useful and I hope this info was helpful to you!
