I bought this for my 18 month old son and he has great fun playing with it. Not only does he use it as a ride on, tooting the horn as he whizzes around, but also for pushing his toys around in and for hiding his little books and teddies inside. He has had this for almost a month now and although his legs are a little short for pushing himself at great speed, it seems to be just the right size for his age. I imagine it will last him for at least another year. The only downside I can find is that there is no steering, otherwise it was fantastic value and appears to be quite robust. Would definitely recommend.
