The bike does come unassembled with directions for 4 bikes in one instruction book. That was a bit confusing, especially since the diagrams were quite small. The bike itself is sturdy and fills that gap between a 12 inch and 16 inch size.
My son is 3 1/2 and we purchased this bike for Christmas. He had a hard time pedaling initially but this was the first time riding a bike ever. I love the fact that it has a bell and a cup holder. The big tires give it a great look. All the kids seems to gravitate to my son's bike as well. My son uses the hand break more than the reverse pedal break but I like that there are two options.
