  • okay- not as good as "original"

    We purchased 3 of these big wheels for my kids. While putting them together, the first one we broke the clip that holds on the back wheels. So it kept falling off while my kids were riding it. On the second one we got the back wheels on but the pedal kept falling off. Needless to say by the third one, we were pros. We got it together with no broken pieces. My husband was able to go to the local hardware store and purchase parts to replace the broken ones (better parts then what it came with). These are not as good as the original big wheels we had as kids. Things aren't made as good as they used to be. My kids love the bikes but we'll have to see how long they last.

  • Should NOT be called "Original" Big Wheel

    This toy's quality is terrible. I had a Big Wheel back in the 70's and this toy does not even come close. Pedals fell off right away, and front wheel actually wore through in the first 3 days because the plastic is so thin. My son loves it, though, so we put electrical tape all over the treads and he still rides it pedal-less and making clunking noises (since the wheel isn't round). This could be such a great product, but instead - Boo!!!!

  • Bad Design

    I don't kow what others were saying about this product, but it did mislead me into buying 2 units for my 4-year-old mixed twins. The very first time they got on and began to pedal, 3 of the 4 pedals came off because the washers are too weak to keep the "blue" pedal in place. If I pull the pedal with my hand, it would came off easily. The design of the big wheel, especially the body "red color", is really wide which force the toddlers' legs outward slightly like a "V" while pedaling. That in turn push the pedals off easily. I've never seen such a poor design for a pedal. Why invent the wheel? Just have the pedals hollow, thread them through the metal spokes, tighten with a hex nut or something. Why a thin and weak spike washer in the middle of the pedal - big mistake! Now, I have to find a way to keep the pedals in place - they are currently in the garage after 5 minutes of play. Why go through the trouble and headaches like I did. My wife got really mad and wonder why I purchased craps online. My younger had a 3-wheeler twenty years ago, and it wasn't like this. Bad design!

  • Stepping back in time.

    This is great! Runs on kid power. It looks just like the one my 28 year son had when he was 3. I bought this for his son for his 2nd birthday. It brings back wonderful memories.

  • more fun on a hill!

    My sisters and I had a big wheel, and we would tear down any hill in sight since we had no sidewalks. Assembly is quite simple my 3yr old handed me pieces as I needed them...BUT the crazy little end cap on the back wheel axle was a booger to get on, one side went easy, the other I forced. I too, miss the hand brake. It doesn't want to go on grass, the front tire spins before you get moving. My 3 and 9 year ride together down the hill in our front yard, giggling and squealing all the way...Oh and I had to have a go too- so it will hold 145 lbs for a zip down a hill. I couldn't resist! Great purchase! Negatives-decals are already pealing off, less than a month since purchased. No hand brake. Plastic molded parts have some rough seams( near handles)

  • Big wheels are AWESOME!

    Ordered and received our big wheels in record time, thanks Overstock! Arrived in perfect condition, took about 10 minutes to assemble and my son has been riding it every day since! No problems with it whatsoever, we are very pleased with this purchase!!

  • Haven't seen Grandson since he received it

    This is a real hit with our three year old Grandson. His father remembers this well. Problem is our son has to chase after his son and he doesn't want that much exercise.

  • good big wheel but no hand break

    My parents still have by Big Wheel from the 70's, and my kids ride it when we visit them. I was very excited to see that I could purchase the official Big Wheel . However, there is one difference between the original one that I had as a kid and the one on the market now, and that is the hand break. The new model does not have the hand brake that was used for spin outs. Oh well, the rest makes a great blast to the past.
