For background my daughter who uses the bike in question is three, she has a scooter and a pedal bike both of which she enjoys. In December we purchased the Paw Patrol Foot to Floor Ride-On Motorbike from our local Toys R Us. Before this every time we entered the store this was the first toy she went for and her enthusiasm as well as her ability to zoom around on the toy made it a high certainty product for purchase. There are a few colour and character options but Paw Patrol is a winner in our house and the main bike she wanted.
The Bike itself has a nice sturdy frame. It feels like it can a spot of rough handling especially when it comes to be dumped on the floor after use. This is important as we want things to last and so far it has held up very well to some pretty vigorous testing both from our 3 year old a swell as our 7 year old son.
I think the key to bike though are its wheels They are a chunky affair and allow for a great deal of momentum to be built up without a great deal of lateral movement. This allows the child to gain confidence in their control of the bike, this is also enhanced by having two feet making contact with the ground on regular occasions. Of course this has to be measured with the fact the wheels are plastic and can lose grip on slick surfaces so safety helmets are a sensible idea when riding.
The handle bar control is light and the front wheel can be easily moved without much fuss and the lack of brakes make the whole experience easy to learn for the younger rider.
Overall we are happy with the purchase a sis our daughter, due to the size of the bike it will not last forever as our daughter gets taller but we will report on any future findings we have.
