This is a pretty cool trike. It's got a large, sturdy frame. Took about 15 min for my BF to put together, tops. A bit larger than I expected. It is a gift for my son for his 2nd bday, so he's yet to ride it. We did test out the pedals and steering. It doesn't seem too stiff for pedaling, but the steering is a little. I'd say a child around 2.5-3 would easily be able to fit on this, but making a full-rotation of the pedals, would be difficult for ages below that. The tires are disappointing that they are plastic, but I knew that beforehand and took a chance on it. They're actually not too bad. The tread is coated in a rubbery material, adding traction. The rims are just plastic and not impressive, though. My one complaint with this trike is that the seat says it is 'padded' and it is uncomfortable. The shape of it is not like a reg trike that has a 'seat' This is more like a dirt bike seat but not very wide. I am not sure how my 2 yr old will like it, but I sat on it (100 lbs, 5'3) and it dug into my 'bones' on my backside. I am on the bony side, so I asked my 7 yr old child who is about 54 lbs to sit on it, since she's smaller but not as bony- and she told me that it dug into her 'butt bones'. :/ So hopefully it won't be bad in a smaller child otherwise I will have to pad the seat with something else.
