The bike is fairly sturdy but the location of the pedals on the front wheel make them completely useless for the average 2 or 3 year old as they can't reach them!! Bought for my little girls 3rd birthday by her aunt it was a huge disappointment to put it all together and find that her feet couldn't even reach the pedals - and she is taller than the average child her age. There is no way of moving the pedal position or bringing the seat forward, which would have solved the problem immediately. I'm going out today to buy another bike where the pedals are positioned directly below the seat, like a normal bike, as more easily accessible for a child her age. If your child is 2 years old then please consider purchasing something else as you will have a very disappointed child otherwise.

Based on the specifications, we purchased this for our daughter's second birthday. It is quite flimsy and comes in lots of little bits that need to be assembled - allow a good couple of hours.
BUT, even once assembled, because the pedals are on the front wheel, there is no way my two year old can ride it. Her four year old sister can barely reach the pedals, and even then the position is so ackward she can't actually pedal the bike.
DO NOT BUY THIS.
