We received the kid Trax rideamals pony for free and it was a perfect fit in our household of 3 girls- twins ages 4.75 and a 2 year old. It arrived in a large box, but assembly was simple and only requires approximately 3-4 steps. The one thing that tested our patience was the required 10-12 hour charge for the battery. Thankfully when my girls woke up the next morning it was ready to go! While my 2 year old is too small to ride the horse, she can interact with it in many ways. She can comb its hair with the brush provided, feed it the food it came with or dance with it! My 4.75 year old twins love these features too, but are becoming adept at riding with its 3 “speeds”- reverse, trot and gallop. It definitely goes as fast as the popular ride on cars, but being an animal makes it more interesting and unique in my opinion. We ride it quite often and haven't had to recharge it yet. It's a bit too fast and large for indoors, but we ride it in our cul de sac and up and down the street. It's strong enough to make it up a slight incline as well. Overall we're excited to have this new toy- I think it'll be the hottest toy this holiday season.
