I bought this as a gift for a friends kid (4 year old) and Amazon as usual delivered it as quick as possible and well packed, I was very happy with the packaging of the topy as well as the quality so I had no problem giving it to my friends kid.
He loved it, especially the lights on the bike, then he stated to play with it and we all heard him scream... after he calmed down he went straight back to playing with the toy and we heard him scream again... but this time we saw that he jumped back from the toy.
Looking at his hand there were some nasty red "pinch bruising" , his mom tried the toy to see how he pinched himself and she too screamed in pain, I tried it and as a man it gave me a nasty pinch!
The problem is where the back wheel meets the frame, the wheel turns and if your hand is there it gets caught in the gap. The harder the child tried to play with the toy the nastier the pinch he is going to get.
I immediately threw the toy in the trash and was reallly really really pi**ed off.
How could MATTEL make such a damn toy? Where is their quality testing??!? I realize Amazon sell thousands of items but dont they test what goes into toddlers hands as well??
I spoke to one of Amazons customer reps and now I am waiting for a response from Amazon. After years of buying from amazon, this is just unacceptable, especially as it involves a little kid.
