Just as you remembered them: sturdy steel construction, and solid rubber tires.
Note: Its recommended age range is 2-5 years; however, they mean a BIG 2 year old. Our grandson just turned 2, and is taller than average, but he can't reach the pedals in the far rotation. I installed some wooden blocks on the pedals to increase their thickness until he grows about 3/4" more.
This is the third tricycle we've purchased for our 4 year old daughter... and it is - by far - the best choice! Other bikes are lightweight and tip over easily, but this bike is always on the ground. We've used it indoors and out... just wipe off the wheels and it looks new again. The only problem we've encountered is that the handle grips come off too easily. I'd recommend gluing them on so the metal underneath is never a danger to your child. I highly recommend this bike and will certainly be purchasing another soon!
Got the pink one for my 2 year old Granddaughter. Simple assembly. Hammer, 7/16 wrench/socket and a phillips head screw driver. Nice hard rubber wheels, deck on the back, solid frame and parts. With it being taken care of, it can be passed through several generations. Nice to see a quality trike is still around. The plastic ones will not last. This one will. Loved the upgraded bell it came with. Reminds me of mine as a child, but mine wasnt pink. ;)
Bought this for my son's 2nd birthday and he just loves it and the price was great compared to other tricycles out there. no gimicks or gadgets, just a nice plain trike for the little one to play with.
My 3 1/2 year old son was having trouble learning to pedal. SO, I saw this tricycle and decided to give it a whirl. He pedaled the first time he got one it. It's great and built very sturdy. It will last for my next son to use.
We just got this for my son's 2nd birthday and he is tall (95th percentile) and his feet barely touch the ground when he is sitting in the lowest position. He still loves it and it will be great to grow into. It's better as an outside bike because the rubber tires are pretty smelly and it makes our house sorta smell like bacon!
This is the good ole red trike of yesteryear - I had one when I was a kid in the 50s. It is well designed and crafted, and was easy to put together. Be advised that this is a heavy, metal trike with hard rubber tires - it is an *outside* toy, if you let your kid drive it around the house he will destroy your house (I'm being funny but I'm serious). Also, be sure to teach your child not to run into other kids, dogs, etc, with this trike - it is not some flimsy plastic Big Wheel.
One other note: we bought this for my grandson's 2nd birthday. He loved it (especially the awesome bell that attaches to the handlebars), but at 2 he was not quite big enough for it. He was able to (barely) climb on it (no way this kid is gonna give up), but his feet just barely reached the pedals, not really well enough for serious cycling, and he also couldn't reach the ground from the seat, so he couldn't "push-ride" it. This is easily remedied with some wooden blocks and a roll of duct tape, but I thought it would be useful to give prospective buyers some idea of the size of this trike. This doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it for your kid at two, just that you will either need to block the pedals or give him a month or two to grow. Since our boy's birthday was in October, I have no doubt that he will be out there wheeling like mad at the first blush of spring :)
This tricycle sits up high, my daughter has tipped it many many times making a turn. Also, the plastic handlebar grips slip off the metal handles.
I bought this for my son's 3rd birthday and the moment he saw it he loved it! He got right on and pushed with his feet! The seat is adjustable and it's well made! It made me remember when I was a kid! Worth the money because this will last!
This trike has wheels that never go flat, yet made of rubber and are great even on gravel. It's tough and big enough for my 3 (almost 4) year old. He's learning to use a 2 wheeler, but still loves this trike to ride around inside the house. I'd recommend this for anyone who's child is too big for traditional tricycles, or just wants something that will last from child to child.
My 3 year old daughter loves this tricycle! Very sturdy and will be able to grow with her thanks to the adjustable seat. Definitely a great buy!
It's nice to see that the tricycle I remember from my youth is still available. One that is metal (not plastic) and has real rubber tires (again not plastic). The bell is a bit hard for my daughter to ring but the tricycle is nice... much nicer than the plastic ones sold in the stores. I wish this one was not just an online product. Also would be nice if it said "Made in America" on it... but that is a thing of the past too.
We bought this bike for our 3-year-old son and it is perfect for him as a "beginner bike rider". I don't think you could purchase a better tricycle -- it is sturdy and I was able to put it together w/o a problem in my husband's absence. If your child is under 38", you may want to wait until he/she is a little taller. Our son is 38" and can just reach the peddles enough to go. We ALL love the bike, though -- even our 14-month-old (his favorite feature is the bell).
We bought this for our 2 1/2 year old daughter for Christmas from "Santa". She adores it! It exceeds our expectations. Very sturdy, beautiful and shiny! I read the reviews before I purchased this product and read some people complaining of the smell from the rubber tires. We took it out of the box and put it together 2 weeks before Christmas and I did notice the smell, but by the time we took it out to put by the tree the smell of rubber was completley gone!! I highly reccomend this product!
Very pleased with this product. I was bought for a 3 year old birthday. Love the sturdy look and feel.
Have another 3 year old birthday coming up in November and plan to buy another one for that grandchild
The only thing that I don't like about this tricycle is that the the plastic covers for the handles keep sliding off. Other than that it serves its purpose our daughter loves it.
We love this bike. Instructions for assembly are clear and easy to use. The Radioflyer craftsmanship is everything that we have come to expect from this brand. However, if your child is short of stature, they may have trouble reaching the pedals.
Trike assembly took about 30 minutes and was pretty easy. Once put together, it's a good looking Radio Flyer trike, classic look, solid metal build. For the price, you can't go wrong. My child hasn't used the trike yet, as it's a Christmas present. The only negative is the smell of the tires. They aren't true rubber, like the description says. It's a rubber type material that smells terrible, even toxic perhaps. I'm letting the trike sit out in the garage for a few weeks until the smell is gone hopefully. I may contact the manufacturer, just to find out what the tires are made from. Overall, a good purchase. My child will be thrilled Xmas morning.
We purchased this tricycle for our grandson's 2nd birthday. It was a hit with us, his parents, and our grandson! We loved the nostalgic design and the good old-fashioned functionality and workmanship. Our grandson hopped on it immediately, and even though he can't quite reach the pedals yet, he still had fun moving it with his feet. With the steps on the back, he can also ride behind one of his older cousins, or later he can give them rides. I had no trouble assembling it; it took less than half an hour. This is the kind of toy that will get passed down long after my grandson outgrows it.
My daughter has been peddling around the neighborhood on this trike for about 2 years now. It was the best purchase we have erver made. Hours of use, good exercise....and it has held up very well. I am sad that she is out growing it. Love it!!!
