I bought this car for my 17 month old son. He likes it a lot as does my 3 1/2 year old girl! I was a little worried about assembly as the reviews seemed to indicate it was very difficult to put together. We had it assembled with no problems in 35 minutes, use a hard surface to put the wheel assembly together....it was no harder than any other toy that needs assembly. I was also worried about how big it would be as we live in a townhouse, but it is a nice size, my 3 1/2 year old fits no problem and my son has lots of room to grow into it, yet it is not a huge toy. Now that it is together we have used it fairly often to replace the stroller. I find that it is much easier and lighter to push than a stroller, it rides nicely and quietly. I like the fact that the wheels in the front do not rotate, I think that rotating front tires would make it harder to push with one hand. I don't find it a problem to tip it back a little to turn. The plastic for the parent handle seems a little weak and I could see that being the first thing to break, also the squeaky horn is hard for my son to push so it actually makes noise (no batteries just a squeaky) it would have been 5 star fun if it had more sound buttons and a key or something, but other than that it is a great little toy!
