I bought this for my 2 year old nephew since his legs are too short to pedal and he wants to "ride" like his sister and brother. Turns out that not only the kids had fun with it....the adults too! It definitely held up to an adult's weight (about 130 lbs.). It was easy to put together and worked inside the house and outside too. It even brought the neighbors over to check it out. My niece even got to ride it with her arm in a sling. I guess I should have ordered more than one....it's hard to get one kid to give it up to take turns with the others!
