We love just about everything about this tricycle. Our 3-year-old loves the little bell and the storage compartment. I love the seat and the sturdy tires. I also love that we can help our son gain confidence on the bike by using the removable handlebar. However, we live on a slight hill, and I can just see him going down the hill on his own, gaining speed, and not being able to slow himself down. I'm not an expert on trikes, but the other trike we have (no handle for it) allows the child to pedal backwards - and use the backward pedal motion to stop himself when going too fast. The design of this bike is such that when the parent is pushing with the handlebar, the pedals don't turn. That's a great feature, except for when your child is ready to ride on their own. There's no way to pedal backwards or slow themselves down. Decide for yourself if that's a feature you must have. If so, then don't buy it - otherwise, it's a great little trike!
