I have just purchased the large Tiger Wheelybug. It is of sturdy contruction, with the seat being well padded and easily cleanable. It has a high quality wood base with castors attatched (instead of conventional wheels), which makes it highly manoeuvrable.
This is an incredibly attractive ride-on, the soft upholtery and bright colours will not fail to draw the child's attention. The ease of movement whilst aboard the Wheelybug, can allow the child to develop both their confidence, and movement skills.
The Wheelybug may be a little 'wayward' for some children, especially on wooden or smooth floor coverings,which allow it to gather up speed,which the child may not be ready to handle. However with appropriate adult supervision,the child will be able to 'negotiate' any obstacle at their own pace.
I would dissuade other children from pushing the Wheelybug, while being ridden by another child. as it is designed to be driven by its rider; otherwise it is potentially uncontrollable.
To conclude my review, I will say the following; good value, excellently made, visually attractive, encourages confidence and dexterity, good exercise and fun to ride. From a safety aspect,it is strong and robust and the points I raised may apply to any toy, if not used responsibly.
Lastly,the handle height is very low (tiger's ears almost touch the top of the handle);this is not so in the illustration. As the Wheelybug comes assembled,it would not appear that the handle height can be adjusted, or if it can be, there were no intructions on how to do this. Have others buyers found this?
