Rated 3 out of 5 by OrganizerPro Might work for heavier young child
Bought this for my daughter's 2 year birthday. She is in 95th percentile height and in 50th percentile weight. I had NO PROBLEMS with the item rolling backwards like one person mentioned at a different site. If you install the wheels correctly, this won't happen. The only problem with this item is that my daughter is not heavy enough to really make it bounce. At 2.5 yrs and 30 lbs, she is finally getting it to bounce better. Despite the problem, she still likes it, but uses it only occasionally. Bottom line, if you are getting it because you wanted one when you were a child, don't waste your money. But if you are getting it because your child is a persistent bouncer and is a little tough on things, this might be the perfect toy for you.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SarahBeansMommy Terrible and dissapointing
My daughter got this as a Christmas gift last year and only sat on it twice. She was 21 months old when we got and now at 2 1/2 and 35lbs she still cant get it to bounce. Its way to stiff. My husband and I both got on it and its even kind of hard for us to get it to go without putting all our weight on it. I recommend getting the bouncing Zebra it plays music and all the kids that come over tend to gravitate towards it. this was a total flop for us.
Rated 4 out of 5 by scratchicat I read all the negative reviews on Amazon and was hesitant to buy the inchworm but decided to anyways for a birthday gift for my 4 year old son. I too had one when I was a kid and I just loved mine so I wanted to share that with my child. My son rides it around the house and it "inches" along just fine on carpet and he has no problem making it move. The back wheels lock so that it moves the inchworm forward when he pushes down. I haven't tried it outside yet. If the inchworm was about $20 cheaper I would have rated it excellent. However, if there is no nostaliga behind the purchase I think you could be disappointed.
Rated 2 out of 5 by faustina TOOO STIFF!!!
My son got this for christmas. He is 2 now and weights 20lbs & is 36 in. It will not bounce and the wheels do not turn so he can not even use it as a scooter toy. My newphew who is 3 weights 50 lbs & 38 in even has a hard time getting it to bounce. We have several ride-ons and having 2, 3, 6 yr old boys who play together they choose the baby ride-on car (playskol walker & ride on car) to ride on instead of the inch worm.
Rated 2 out of 5 by inchwormmom Too hard to inch
We bought this as a Christmas gift for our very high energy rambunctious daughter. Assembly was quick and easy. The toy is very attractive to her but it does not work. The back wheels do not turn. It is too tight for her to jump on as the product claims. My son who is almost 4 cannot even make it jump as claimed. This was her only gift since times are hard so I am dissappointed that she cannot play with it the way it was intended.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mjb18majik fun for 2 year old
the only drawback on this product is the noise the wheels make! my husband had to tear it all apart to disable the noise makers or we would have lost our minds listening to it in the house!! otherwise, it's a great toy and our son loves it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nocherie Worth the money for my daughter
It is stiff to ride like other reviewers have said but she loves it nonetheless. She gets on and pushes it with her feet or we help her push it up and down. It'll be perfect for the sidewalk when spring comes. Much better than our hardwood floors!
Rated 3 out of 5 by lovemykidstimes3 Granddaughter liked it
She likes it and will for awhile but I agree with other reviews that the spring is to stiff. She will probable get bored with it cause it doesn't really move like it should. It is cute

Rated 1 out of 5 inchworm
son who is almost 3, got this toy as a Christmas present and can't get
it to bounce because it is so stiff. I wouldn't recommend this toy.
Rated 2 out of 5 by PapaCoCo Not a Big Hit
Bought this for my sons (2 and 4) and neither has been too enthusiastic about it. For one it's hard for them to make it go as designed (bouncing up and down)--it is too stiff. When I help them to get it going it just inches along. My boys tend to get impatient and move on to the plasma car I bought at the same time--I wish I had it bought 2 plasma cars instead; feels like I wasted $50+. Oh well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by grlyq831 My son adores this toy. It was simple to put together. I had read that it was too stiff for smaller children and found that to be true. I am hoping it loosens up so he can bounce around on his own. I bounce it while he's on it and he laughs his head off.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ProudNICUMommy Not so good!
I bought this for my 2 year old son. He still has a problem with getting it to bounce. It is very stiff and hard for even an adult to push down. My older children have more fun with it than my 2 year old. He just sits and pushes it with his feet around. I would not recommend this product if your child wants it for the bounce.
