"Bike itself is well made but more care needs to be taken with the stabilisers. They don't appear to fit properly and there is too much ground clearance. This causes too much tilting from side to side. I've had to fit different stabilisers to prevent accidents. Not experienced this problem before with other children's bikes."

"Great 1st time bike, we bought for my little boy who just turned 3 and he loves the little bike. Its solid so can handle plenty of knocks & has a very eye catching colour scheme.
Just a pity it does not have any matching accessories & also the stabilisers are not actually that stable! Overall value for money as it was £130 and we got it on line for £50 so cant really complain.

"Really good bike for our two year old to learn to ride on, easy to put together apart from the front mud guard. The instructions did not show how to put this on and after taking the brakes apart we got a bit stuck, finally got it back together .
Would buy this bike again but would not even bother trying to put the front mud guard on.

Pros: sturdy, brakes easy to do, adjustable seat and handle bars
Cons: no accessories to match
"Brought this for my sons 4th birthday in the half price sale £65, I was worried it will be too small but it is fine and as both the seat and handle bars raise it will last for quite a while. It is very solid and quite heavy which seems to help at high speeds! I was having kittens thinking he was going to fall off but it stayed upright. The brakes are not to stiff so is good for little hands. Unlike cheap trikes we have had previously my son is also able to ride on the grass easily. My son loves the design but would have prefered a super hero one but they only do it in a 16" wheel also there are no accesories to match this bike. We brought him a growling handle to go withit but it will not fit with the brakes but works well on his scooter. However all in all I am very pleased."

"I bought this as a first bike for my little boy who's just turned 3... to say he loves it is an understatement. It is very easy to ride, and ideal for a novice to 2 wheels. The stabalisers give just a little wobble, so he's already learning to balance. Great buy."
