5.0 out of 5 stars Why do you need an xbox? Buy them toys like this!
I was bought these for my (45th) birthday. Now everybody has had a go! They are a lot more stable than I thought, I think with a bit of practice most people who are resonably fit would soon get the hang of them. Suitable for younger children too (about 6-7), whereas "funwheels" are considerably harder and for older kids. They are more robust than some pedal-a-goes that I...

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited appeal and harder than it looks
This is harder than it looks. Bought it for 6 year old twins, but didn't give it in the end as far too difficult for them. My children age 10 and 12 could do it but it had limited appeal, think they felt a bit silly doing this in the street. If you want a stock of these kind of things for the odd occasion, go for it as it's well made and sturdy but not for us sadly...

I was bought these for my (45th) birthday. Now everybody has had a go! They are a lot more stable than I thought, I think with a bit of practice most people who are resonably fit would soon get the hang of them. Suitable for younger children too (about 6-7), whereas "funwheels" are considerably harder and for older kids. They are more robust than some pedal-a-goes that I have seen. They are great fun and develop good balance. Just be sure you take adequate precautions especially if you have not tried other balance/skill toys before. Eg wear knee pads & gloves etc and practise away from sharp hard objects that you could fall on! Top Tip: I like to practise in kids playgrounds on that bouncy tarmac they have under swings thesedays. They have been very popular with the kids at circus skills workshops - they all want to have a go.

Much much harder than you think it would be, but great fun.
I bought this for an 8 year olds birthday present. She was delighted.
Definitely needs at least one parent to help as it is very hard to keep
Your balance, but is lots of fun.

Bought this for a bit of fun and thought it would be a great training aid for my husband on his unicycle. It's great for improving balance and loads of fun, my girls ( aged 6 and 8) won't get off of it! Feels nice and smooth to pedal ( once you get into a rythmn) and is nice and sturdy - takes adult weight (up to 14st), so we don't have to miss the fun. Would recommend getting one of these- well worth the money!

GOT THIS TOY FOR THE GRAND KIDS. WE HAD ONE WHEN WE WERE SMALL AND LOVED IT. ITS SOME THING I THINK THEY WILL ALWAYS GO BACK TO AND WILL LAST TILL WHEN EVER THEY GET FED UP WITH IT WHICH WILL BE A LONG TIME AS THE ADULTS PLAY ON IT TOO. YOU HAVE TO HAVE GOOD BALANCE ON IT SO NOT SO GOOD IF YOU HAVE BALANCE PROBLEMS.

Great fun for ages 3(with help) to fifty three in my family! Great when you get in rhythm. When you lose your balance it just stops which is good. Would have given in 5 stars if turning corners was possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pedal racer, 30 April 2014

This review is from: Pedal Racer (Toy)
This pedal racer is sturdily built and can tolerate quite rough treatment. I bought this initially as a novelty for my nephews when they came to visit but it has been used by people of all ages, sizes and weights on a regular basis. It takes a bit of getting used to if I'm honest, and takes a bit of time to get your balance right, but once you get to grips with it, there's no stopping you. It's great fun! I initially found that it's better if someone stands in front of the person using it, until they get the hang of it to prevent any falls. We've all had many hilarious hours of fun with this racer and it brings out the competetive spirit in people. It also tones up muscles you didn't know you had! Well worth buying and a definite addition to any barbecue or garden party. I would highly recommend this racer for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good all round family fun, 7 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Pedal Racer (Toy)
This was a Christmas present for my youngest son and he had to join a long queue to get a go on it! Such fun!! Not the most elegant thing to ride, and you look a complete wally wobbling about on it, but we all love it and are still racing (!!) up and down the lounge. Yet to take it outside as fearing broken bones.
Great, sturdy construction and can take adult weight without the fear of breaking. Recommend to anyone who likes a giggle, whether you have a good sense of balance or not (funnier if you don't!!)

This review is from: Pedal Racer (Toy)
Bought this for my seven year old son but everyone who has come into the house over the last six months has had a go. Not too easy to begin with but a great sense of achievement when you master it. Kids are turning corners with it and everything. My three year old loves going on it with someone holding her hand. A good, fun toy for all ages. Highly recommend.
