Great fun, looks cool, little noisy and hope it's durable.

We bought this for our son's 1st birthday and it was a real hit. Took 10-15 mins to assemble and looks really cool. We get lots of attention riding round in it and he loves it. I cna see us getting years of fun from it.
Positives - looks really cool and will evolve as he grows up. Cup holder for his water bottle when we're out, means he doesn't fall asleep when we're out in it as he would be likely to do in his buggy. Seems sturdy and well made but time will tell. The ability to steer is a big plus, tried some of those without this and it's so much easier, with him holding onto the handlebars I'm sure he's also learning how the steering works for the future. Seat padding is good, as is the harness. Handle extends to a range of heights to suit everyone and it even goes down to it fits in the car.
Negatives - Sunshade can be a little annoying at times as you can't see him when he's in the buggy. It's easy to flip up for a quick look though. It's also the largest area of the cow print pattern and if you take it off the style of the trike is reduced to just being black and white. Would have been better if there were more pattern across the 'bodywork'. Solid plastic wheels look good and should wear well but only time will tell. The downside of these wheels, and a couple of other bits on the trike, is that over rougher ground it's quite noisy.
Conclusion - Definately recommend, although this is the pricier version with the animal sytling. The solid wheels and steering make this the trike all others have to beat.
