Not quite what was ordered, but never-the-less, fits the bill
on 3 May 2013
It is advertised as a 4-in-1,but I received and 3-in-1, the difference being the seat recline feature (as far as I can tell).
No matter, the boy loves it and that's the main thing (and I don't have the time to return it).
That said, even having looked at one in the playground before purchase, it's not as strong as I first thought and doesn't ride that well. Anything other than good tarmac surface has it rattling crazily! The streets here are not good, so it is a bit of a problem, though not that the boy seems to care! The wheels could have done with being slightly softer to ride the rough stuff more easily.
Also the phone holder is easily (and constantly) pulled off by him - it easliy clicks into place, but far too easily clicks out of it too.
The brake lever extends past the diameter of the rear wheel, which means it catches as you go down curbs and the like and going up curbs with the footrests extended down, can cause them to catch and retract.
On the whole, the thing is very easy to assemble and use.
It's been in use every day since purchase and my quibbles are minor, more related to where it's used, than how.
I gave t 3, but closer to 3.5 really and were I using it in the UK, then higher again, I'm sure.
