Our twin boys, 2 1/2 years old, received this from Santa in Dec 2011. Best present EVER! I backed up over one of the bikes though and it was still worth it to get another one, which I purchased on Overstock. The bikes are very lightweight so it's easy for them to pick them up and move them as needed - a GREAT feature. The size & weight makes them easy to transport to a park or walking trail or wherever. At first, I was concerned about the wheel texture and thought it might be too smooth and cause some slips or falls. Not the case at all. My twins had the bikes mastered in no time. They even rode them around our house in the winter time. Even the twins older siblings (6 yrs & 8 yrs) love to ride on these bikes, put their feet up and glide. Easy to assemble as well, though I did have to bend with one of my tools part of the handlebar metal clamp piece to get the handlebars completely flush down onto the main bike portion. The piece was just bent a little too small so it had to be bent further out to go down. It was a minor fix - anyone could do it. Two great features of this bike as opposed to some other glider bikes is how lightweight it is and that you can raise the seat up as the child grows taller.
