Got this bike for my 4 year old son and he just loved it the minute it was opened. It took me under an hour to put it together. The additional stickers are a great idea and we have decided to use them to cover any future scratches on the bike! Even though my son cannot reach the ground sitting on the saddle, he has now learnt to start and halt the bike, whilst sitting on the top tube (frame). He should grow into the bike by next year. Unlike his previous bike (12 inches) this bike conveniently navigates through grass and road with almost equal ease. The brakes are also excellent, although I had to raise them up a bit so my son does not have to lean forward in trying to reach them. This bike is the envy of most other kids in the park and my son just adores and enjoys it !
Overall, an excellent purchase!
