This is an excellent walker, and it's fairly easy to convert from ride-on to walk-behind. The only bad part, is the friction pads on the bottom of the walker. Judging by the screechy-ness of my son's cry, they hurt like heck. If he doesn't move his feet quickly enough, they get caught under the pads. Simple solution: remove the friction pads. Without the pads, this walker is pretty much perfect. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
