I purchased this bike for my son for his third birthday. Bike was relatively easy to put together although the plastic side shields are a little "cheap". I bought this for my son as it pedaled like a tricycle but he sat upright like a bike. I like the front wheel pedals as it gives him easy control of the speed/braking. The bike never got away from him as long as his feet were on the pedals. When we first got it I had to attach pedal blocks for him to comfortably reach, but withing 6 months we removed them. This bike has held up very well even through a couple spills.
My 3 year old is approximately 3 feet tall and he barely can reach the pedals despite the fact that this bike is marketed as a "toddler bike". Also, the materials were pretty cheap (the Cars signs on either side are held on by plastic zip ties). I honestly don't think the quality of this product matches the price it cost. I do like that it is a Disney Cars Character bike but I could have easily put some Cars stickers on a regular bike and achieved a similar effect. Also, this item in theory should have taken less than an hour to put together for a person experienced in assembing bikes, (especially considering its small size) but it took my friend over an hour, partly because the washers & holes for holding the main wheels in place were spaced too far apart.
My son loves this nike
Was a great Christmas gift for my Grandson
Bought this for my 2 year old and it was a total waste. The pedals are too far forward and hard to reach. The pictures on the sides are a thin piece of plastic held on by a plastic zip tie. Not what I expected from a Disney/Pixar item.
