We purchased 2 of these last Christmas for my daughters who were 6 and 8. The whole family, the 6 of us, ranging in age from 6 - 41, love these things. My husband, myself and our 2 oldest boys, 13 and 21, even enjoy them. We all ride them around the house on the hardwood floors, which don't leave any kind of marks; we also take them on the porch, in the garage, sidewalk and driveway. The girls are the envy of all their friends. Every single kid that have rode these want one. My sister and sister-in-law have already ordered these for their kids and their friends do nothing but play on these when they come over. They are constructed very well, very sturdy and very easy to operate. You just sit and steer. They really just go on their own. You will not be disappointed.
