5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!!
We have an original version for my 3 year old son, his 6 year old sister fell in love with his and they were "sharing" the one - it was a well thought out decision to buy a second, only I was concerned with making sure which belonged to whom.The pink version was the perfect solution!Great addition to this family of super star toys! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Many of the Features of the Costlier Versions
I purchased the Supertrike 4 after seeing the top-of-the-line Kiddio trikes at the mall. I was impressd by the features, but the cost was a little high. I am very happy with the combination of features and value offered by the Supertrike 4. The seat, inflatable rubber tires, "dump truck" bed, and hand brake are identical to the higher end Kiddio trikes. The design is not as "tank-like", but it looks to me that the Super Trike 4 is very strong, and actually will be a bit lighter than the higher end versions. The grey/blue/yellow color scheme is a little less vibrant.

I was also happy that the push bar comes included with the price of the trike, not as a separate purchase. The bar works well. My daughter is a tall 2 1/2 year old, and in the shortest seat position (there are two), the trike is just a bit too long, so there is plenty of room to grow. The rubber tires are smooth and quiet on my driveway, and I even pushed her around the grass. The steering is limited so the front tire can't rotate too much and cause a tip hazard. The trike seems very stable. Unlike the more expensive versions, the front wheel cannot free wheel, so your child always has to pedal, or take their feet off the pedals.

Tools are provided for assembly, which took me about 45 minutes. The directions are fairly clear. Hopefully this will save people some time: The seat has a 3-point safety harness, and the procedure is to screw the harness to the seat. The assembly instructions show holes in the harness straps and seat. They don't exist. Little indents in the plastic seats indicate where you should put the screws. It turns out you can just screw right through the nylon strap with no problem, so you don't need the holes in the strap. The plastic of the seat gives and then forms a tight fit with the screw. So you don't need the holes there either. It took me a few minutes to stop looking for the holes and just try it.

Overall my daughter seems very happy with the Supertrike 4, it seems well-built, and I am happy with the features for the price.

Don't worry
I'm not calling anyone a liar or anything but I have this trike and it is next to freaking impossible to "get your foot stuck between the pedal and the wheel". Also you have to be an idiot to not be able to put this thing together. The trike ships in basically four pieces. With a ratchet you can put it together in 15 minutes no problem. Best value of all the Kettler trikes. Inflatable tires a huge difference. If you need the coaster wheel pay double to get a "real" Kettler model. Other than that this one is close to perfect

disappointed
I was in the market for a tricycle for my daughter's 2nd b-day.
I was going to buy a Radio Flyer, but the one I was looking at got bad reviews. So I found this Kiddio, had wonderful reviews!
Bought it, received it, put it together by myself (2 hrs). It was by far the hardest thing I ever put together!:( Next bike I buy will already be operational!! that's for sure!!
When my daughter and I tested it out, she was steering, so I COULDN'T!!! Not Good!! and we all of a sudden came to a dead stop, her foot was stuck between the wheel and pedal!! She wasn't hurt.:)
!!!!VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

great bike for my son who has autism
We were looking for a bike for my younger son as he wanted to get on his elder brothers bike, so we thought he is ready for a bike and took him to toysrus there he just went and sat on this bike,and ever since we bought it home he loves it very much, he gets on the bike and asks me to take him out for ride in the evenings, this is a good sized one as my son is 2and1/2yr old is 42in and weighs around 38lbs, and as i said he is diagonised with ASD(autism spectrum disorder) so he wont stay in one place and wants to wander all around, but the belt on the bike helps him to stay in seat.
The only thing i didnt get is how to use the brakes on the bike other wise its really good one though bit pricey.

Great bike!
We just bought this bike for our two year-old. He was aprehensive about the pedals at first, but now he says "wheeee" as his feet go around and around. He's a little short at this time, but he will grow into it. I love the handle as it is easy to push and steer. It was worth the money. ... Read more

Editorial Review

It may not feature any loop-de-loops or terrifying hairpin turns, butpreschoolers will likely find this 10-foot-long roller coaster every bit asthrilling as grownups find the amusement park version. Molded in brightlycolored plastic, it's built for years of wear in either the backyard or theplayroom. The set's components fit together to form a downhill ride with anothersmaller hill about halfway through. What we loved most about this set is thefact that the individual parts are just as much fun as the fully assembled kit.The car, bright yellow with a sturdy handle, could just as easily be used aroundthe house if the child is too young for the coaster. And the ramp system isplenty of fun to roll cars, balls, or anything else. Perhaps our tiny toy testersaid it best: "Wheee!" --John Moe ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hours of Fun for your Little One!
The Step 2 Up and Down Roller Coaster is a great toy, and yes, is hours of fun. The first day we brought ours home, our 14 month old had taught herself to climb the steps, hang onto the handle bars, and push herself off to get the coaster to move. The steps are easy for a little child to climb, and even if they fall, it's a VERY short distance, I sincerely doubt a child could get hurt on this. Our little one is now 17 months old, and the fun factor has not worn off. She now can push the coaster back to the top of the ramp, to go for another ride.....she's very independant, and this toy has been perfect for her. I think it's helped her and her urge to do everything on her own, and since it's an easy toy for children to crawl on, play with, they CAN do it on their own! Durable, easy to assemble, it maybe took us all of 5 minutes to get it together, and it moves easily. Washable, and our dogs have put the coaster and track to the torture test, too....you cannot hurt this toy! Highly suggest buying this. Plus, when she outgrows it, I know it'll hold up a long time, to be passed on to another child. Also, the coaster car can be ridden off of the coaster track, making it double as a great first "bike". We often see our little one riding it around the yard!

5-0 out of 5 stars great investment
we bought this for our sons 2 year birthday. we had it out at his party and all of the kids loved it. it is a safe toy that kids of all ages can have fun with.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
This toy was given to my then 2 year old daughter for her birthday. she just turned 5 and still loves it. To make things even more enjoyable, her older sister and brother love it. They are now 9 and 6 1/2 and still love to play with it. I took a ride on it and I loved it. They also have taken their silly pins and put them at the end and rolled the ball. They call the game rock and roll bowling. You can put it together in a "snap" and can easily be taken apart and stored.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun toy
My 2 year old got this for his Bday. I wasn't too sure about it at first because it is so big and the steps seemed like they could be dangerous. I was completely wrong! It may be big, but it is perfectly safe. He and the neighbor kid love to ride this and then enjoy pushing it up the ramp. They also like to send other toys down the ramp! I see this as a toy that is going to last many years!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
Bought this for my oldest daughter when she was 27 months old. She loved it. My one year old didn't show much interest. But, just three months later, she loves it too! It's durable, easy to assemble and your kids will learn how to push the car back to the top. Too much fun! ... Read more

Editorial Review

With a little help from a bigger friend (parent, guardian…), young children can launch into the world of learning via interactive books. Little Touch LeapPad is designed for tots 6 to 36 months, with three distinct levels of activities and stories: musical rhythms and sounds; short descriptive phrases; and rhymes and early learning. Stories or activity cards snap into the book frame, along with a story cartridge. Grownups will need to help little ones activate the book pages by touching the "Go" button every time a page is turned, as well as showing young "readers" how to touch pictures to make them come to life with developmentally appropriate narration and learning activities. A comfy cushion is attached to the LeapPad platform for cozy shared reading time. Four AA batteries required (not included). --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good pics, but too hard
I loved the idea of this toy, and thought it would be incredibly beneficial for my daughter (who's had it since 6 months). She is now a year old and still cant push the buttons, it just takes too much strength! I have tried pushing the buttons with her finger and I almost feel as though Im hurting her to try and show her how. She loves the boks and sounds, but it doesnt hold her attention as she is very independent and wants to do it herself. The books and pictures, however, are great. I would recommened the keypad have sensitive settings, (maybe 3 levels of sensitivy) so it would be VERY sensitive to the touch of a baby, and maybe require more strength as they grow and understand. Otherwise they lose all the cause & effect learning from it! Overall, I dont regret the purchase, just feel it is not age-appropriate.

3-0 out of 5 stars For my daughter
I bought this for my daughter at 18 months for christmas. She could not push the buttons herself and did not want to push the go button everytime she turned the page. It holds her attention about 10 min although she does like turning the pages and just reading the stories. At 31 months she likes it a little better but still does not have the patience to press the go button each time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Dissapointed
I bought this for my daughter at 10 months old. I ended up putting it away until she was 20 months. At 21 months she is showing some interest and finally has the strength to push on the pages to make it work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy for future book lovers
My daughter has loved the LeapFrog Little Touch since she received it last Christmas. It's a great child/parent toy and the ability to interact with your kid is a big plus. In fact, I miss the days when she needed me to push the buttons for her.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Toy
This is a great toy which requires your interaction at some level. My son is 1 and he just got this for his birthday. He does fine with it by himself, but to fully utilize the toy, we read and play with it together. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Toys that grow with your child from infancy to toddlerhood are well worth their cost. The Classical Chorus Gym is one such toy, allowing your child to explore music at every stage of his development. As an infant, your child can lay on his back and bat at the hanging toys while the keyboard plays 10 different classical or nursery melodies, some with a children’s chorus. You can set the music to play continuously for up to 10 minutes, or only when your child successfully hits a toy, teaching him cause and effect. When your child learns to sit, the keyboard adjusts with him to the proper height, and then adjusts one more times to accommodate a standing or walking child. At these stages, you can set the music to play part of a song when your child presses a key or let your child experiment with scales and individual notes. The keyboard’s "singing" stars light up as music plays to further delight budding musicians. The Classical Chorus Gym requires three "C" batteries for operation. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Versatile
We bought this toy when our son was just two months old and he loves it. We are at five months now and he still gets a huge kick out of it.
There are so many ways to play! At first we'd lay him on his back an he would swat at the dangling rattles. They are bright and attention-getting. When he'd hit one, music would play and the lights would flash; it kept his attention. It didn't take much effort, and helped develop his coordination. There aren't many toys a two-month-old will play with. Then he learned that he could push the buttons to play and change songs.
The toy is re-positionable, so it can be used when the baby is laying down, with the rattles hanging. Tilt it at 45 degrees and sit him in a bouncer or car seat under it. At 90 degrees when he's standing (we still have to help him stand). And with a switch in the legs' configuration, it can be positioned so that he sits and plays.
There are (at least) 6 sound modes, ranging from one button playing a whole song, through pressing buttons that prompt a song to continue, to one button being a single tone (like a keyboard).
We love this toy and so does our son. It is good for just about everything except tummy time. We expect to get at least a year out of the developmental value.
Just another two things about it: it is very sturdy construction, but not a good toy to balance or lean on, and it is EASY to reconfigure.

It Grows With Your Child !
Another must have for every new parent !

We bought when dd was several months old, however we were still able to get some use out of the hanging toy feature. She loved it because she could control the music when it stopped. We also found that she would try to reach beyond the hanging toys and press the piano keys.

Then as she got older, we would sit her in front of the piano inside her boppy. She loved the fact that she was playing upright and would constantly watch all the colors. The keys on the piano were nice and big for her to hit as she gained more control of her hands.

Then as she got to the standing age, she would use this tall piano to stand up with. We never had a problem with it tipping over because the legs seemed to be positioned just right to prevent this from happening. As the months went on, she would push the piano throughout the house when she didn't feel like using her activity walker. Several months ago she began to press keys on setting 2 and she would dance to the music. Now at 20 months she tries to sing along with the songs (ie Twinkle Twinkle Little Star) and also recites the colors as they light up.

The variety of songs is great. You don't really get tired of them. Also, we've had for almost 18 months and have never needed to replace the batteries yet.

We very seldom use setting 3 (the one that lets you play it like a real piano) because we have a real piano that she tries to play.

The entertainment and educational value on this toy cannot be compared. It's so nice that it grows with your child. We definitely feel like we got our monies worth ! It has proved to be extremely durable!

A couple minor complaints that I have is that there is no volume control. Sometimes it does seem as though it's a bit loud. Also the orange plastic piece that snaps in above the keyboard doesn't really seem to provide any value. DD just kept pulling it off and found that the force of pulling would cause her to fall backwards to the floor - - after several times of doing this, we decided to just not put it back on.

Great toy - great value ! !

A great beginning toy
We got this toy as a gift and my daughter has loved it ever since she was just a few weeks old. She started out watching the lights on the mirrored attachment and has loved every feature; the dangling toys, the keyboard, the music. I was even able to turn it into a kicking toy. She loves to kick the keyboard and make it play. It keeps her attention for LONG spans of time.

My daughter's favorite toy!
We bought this toy when my daughter was 5 months old. She is now 16 months old and STILL loves it. It was one of the first toys that she played with when she was an infant. It helped her to learn to control her legs. It's not a "battery hog" either, even if you forget to turn it off, like we do. It also breaks down for easy travel.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this toy!
My son loves this toy. We've had it since he was 4 months old and he is now 9 months old. He plays with it everyday. It entertains him for hours on end. I would say this is the best toy we have. ... Read more

This award-winning globe could help children become A+ geographystudents. The Explorer Globe II is jam-packed with hundreds of facts, trivia,and useful scholastic information about every aspect of the geographical world.It electronically verbalizes everything from area population, capitolcity/country, state/province, large bodies of water, currencies, high points,distance, and more. Other remarkable features make the Explorer an even moreuseful reference tool. It has a world clock that, once set from your home area,will tell the time in every other part of the world. And any country can beselected to hear a sample its national music (yes, Tahiti does have a nationalanthem). The globe sits on a sturdy base, which features a dashboard full ofinteractive functions and an attached soft-tipped stylus. This stylus is the keyinstrument: use it to touch virtually any point on the surface of the globe toretrieve information. --Diane Beall ... Read more

Best present my kids ever got
I'm not one for electronic toys, normally. But this globe is terrific. The second day after she received it, my 6-year-old had learned all the continents and oceans, and could find each of them within two or three seconds after the globe called them out. She's working on countries now. Her first-grade class had to make a collection of 100 items of their choice. She chose to collect 100 country names, which she patiently copied from the globe while listening to music snippets and basic facts about each one. Last month, we read that geologists believe India was once a seperate island, which eventually crashed into mainland Asia. I asked her what mountain range was made during that crash, and she barely paused before answering the Himilayas. And what's the biggest mountain in the Himilayas? Mt. Everest.

But the best part is when the kids go to bed. Then I get to challenge my wife to Eureka, to see who can find the most countries, cities and continents as they are called out randomly by the globe. She always wins. But I'm improving, and one of these days....

My only complaint (like many of the other reviewers) is that the globe started malfunctioning after several months. In our case, the sensors must have shifted inside the globe so that instead of giving you information for the country you select, it tells you about it's neighbor 2 inches to the left. But the company will replace the globe for free...I just had to ship it back to them at my own cost (no big deal). Many people complain about the Stylus failing. But a replacement stylus is pretty cheap. And if you play with it as much as we do, you can't expect it to last forever, can you?

Pity!! Good toy that doesn't last
This interactive globe is really good at introducing geography to the kids. It's a real pity that the pointer's touch system becomes insensitive after regular use. Toy lasted less than 3 months.

Fun but broke after a few months
Defintely a great concept but the touch pen quit working after about half a year. Now its just a plain globe. Ratings are based on function level after it quit working, since I found many similar sotries on the web. Sad the quality is so LOW. It would be all 5s otherwise

Be Careful Before you Spend Your $100
It's frustrating really. We purchased an explorer globe for our son who loved to play the states game in the Lap Pad book. We used it a total of 4 times in 6 months because once we got it we realized it wasn't quite at his level, (he was just 5). We put it up and when a friend came over whom was interested in purchasing one for her son, I let her try it out. It turned on just fine, but the pen would not work. I changed the batteries but with no luck. It worked randomly for a few times after that but it no longer works at all. We have had it for only a year and it has been used no more then 10 times. Leap Frog only warrants their products for 3 months. Our 3 months were up and their was nothing we could do about. We spent $100 on what was supposed to be a great, long term educational product, unfortunately not even the company that makes it can back it up. Their goes another $100 wasted on this company. We're done spending money on their products. Note: Watch out for Leapster and Leap Pad products as well.

Hide & Slide Climber by Little Tikes
I like the product for its durability, but thought the kids (age 1 & 2 1/2) would play with it more. I think it is a little overpriced for what you get.

Happy Mommy
I just got this climber/slide! My 17 month old went nuts over it! It's perfect for my little girl to do her favorite thing (climb) and she figured out how to sit and slide with no problems. It fits great in her playroom and feels very sturdy. I am very pleased with this purchase. My favorite things about it are all the giggles, squeals and smiles! Yay Little Tikes!

Baby loves Hiding and Sliding
I bought this slide when my son was 14 months old. He loves it. We keep it inside since it is so cold and wet outside right now. It doesn't take up *too* much room in spare bedroom. He loves climbing up and down the steps. He is learning the steps of how to slide (1st sit down, then get one foot in front, then the other, then scooch forward). Just as the product name implies, he loves hiding under it and surprising me and playing peekaboo around the corners. It was a snap to put together maybe 15 minutes tops - if a piece is fitting too snuggly follow the directions and put a little soap on it to help it snap into place. I think son will enjoy this product for some time!

Perfect for little climbers!
Santa left this piece of equipment for our 15 month old son who was beginning to climb on everything. It was the first thing he saw on Christmas morning and was overjoyed. He spent a half hour exploring and climbing on it right away. He loves to play peekaboo and hide things on the top shelf or underneath.
We put it together in our (admittedly oversized) playroom, so he can have a gross motor playtoy indoors for inclement days. Though a young child should always be supervised on any climbing apparatus, I did just order a gym mat for the bottom of the slide, as the angle is steeper than forty-five degrees and provides a fast ride with a quick stop. It's also a nice way for practicing going up and down stairs.

good for all ages
We bought this slide for our daughter's first birthday and she loves it! She had just mastered walking and was starting to climb on our furniture, etc. This slide provided a safe indoor climbing outlet and has improved her coordination immensely. Her older cousins love it too.

The features I like best are the platform at the top of the slide and the fact that there is a bit of thrill in the slope of the slide: The platform allows kids to safely hang out (and seems like a fort) and the slide is tall enough that it envokes lots of giggles!

Be careful where you set it up as it is VERY difficult to get through a standard door frame. ... Read more

What's the No. 1 group dance for the pre-school set? Hint: it's not the "Electric Slide" or "Cotton-Eyed Joe." You guessed it, and so did Elmo: the "Hokey Pokey." Though Elmo doing the "Slide" would be a sight to see, he masters the Pokey quite convincingly, to the probable delight of his toddling fans. After loading his foot with four "AA" batteries, press his hand and he performs the popular jig. He sticks out both his right hand and foot, shakes his body all about, then smoothly spins in place, thanks to a rotating platform under one foot. Elmo even spices up the beat, and sporadically speeds up the action; both innovations crank up the fun factor. The only downside: he was de-plushed, presumably because of all the mechanisms needed to help him dance and maintain balance. The result, still, is an impressive performance. He's just not very cuddly. --Diane Beall ... Read more

We hokey pokey right along!
Since my 1-year-old is an Elmo freak, we bought this for her for Christmas. She loved it from the first beat! It was hard for her to turn on at first, but once she got him going, she danced right along! And I have to admit, it's kind of a catchy jig! Our only problem was that the batteries ran out pretty fast. But other than that, we love Hokey Pokey Elmo!

It is an awsome toy!
I love Elmo and so does my niece. My co-worker had it, and I thought it was neat. Now I would like to buy it for my niece for her birthday and i can't find it any wheres in syracuse New york.

great toy elmo
i bought this elmo for my 6 month old elmo he loved it and we as adults thought it was ahoot i wanted one so did some of my family it is so sweet

Our kids LOVE Elmo!
My daughter got this for her first Christmas this past year and she is going on 7mos now but she absolutely LOVES this toy. She giggles and squirms whenever he's singing and dancing. Her 2 yr old brother dances with him too and loves when he falls over because he asks you to pick him back up. Granted he doesn't sing the whole song but who cares? It's the fun of dancing with Elmo. So far Elmo has survived 2 kids and a curious cat. The entertainment value and watching what your kids do when he dances and sings far outweighs the noise and not singing the whole song. I recommend this if you want to have a great time with your children.

LOVE IT!
My Greatgrandmother got this Elmo for me for Christmas, and I can't stop bouncing when he dances. I'm still pretty little, so I like to eat Elmo's fur, but when Mommy and Daddy play and dance with me, it's SO much fun! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!
We bought this for my 3 year old's birthday in December. He spent all winter riding it around the house! He absolutely loved it the minute he saw it, would go to it first thing in the morning, and ride it all day!! When spring came we took it outside hoping he would still love it as much. Well, he still drives it everyday!! He pretends it's a garbage truck, a newspaper delivery car, of course a loader..... It just goes on and on...I never know what he will pretend to do on this ride on!!!! I LOVE that he is getting excerise while "driving" it, too! He has battery powered cars, but prefers this one! How cool is that?!! As I remember, it was a little difficult to put together. The directions were not that great. I still had to give it 5 stars because it has held up great! My son absolutely LOVES it! It gets used EVERY day! He is getting excercise and using his imagination!!! What more could you want in a toy!!??!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy.
M 2 year old son loves this tractor. After his cousin got one for his birthday. He cried and cried for his own. His grandparents bought it for him and we can not get him off of it. He loves to pedal (actually ) he likes to pedal then riding his battery operated vehicles. The only thing is that he likes to get our gravel and dump it on the driveway so we have to clean this up but other than that it is great. I was really worried after reading some of the reviews that it would not hold up or be a piece of junk but it is just the opposite. It is wonderful

5-0 out of 5 stars Eee gads! Are the other reviewers kidding me?
We bought this for our 3-year old after reading all the praises. I'll tell you what-- the hype, in my opinion, is ridiculous. Besdies null customer service from Peg Perego, here are my points:

> The instructions are absolutley the worst. Here's an example:
8) Remove the tape <---what tape???
9) Insert a retainer in the special device. <---What is a "special device"?? What retainer? No figures to help.
10) Insert the plugs in the handle bar <-- there are no plugs!

And it goes on and on like this. Even Toys 'R Us warned me about the instructions. I'm a pretty handy guy, so I was able to get it assembled (except for a stripped screw) in an hour. If you're not very handy or confident improvising, have Toys'RUs do it for you.

> Next, the hardware (such as screws) seem to be made of very soft metal. That means stripping during assembly and during use.

> Our boy is an aggressive digger (but not a rough kid). After one hour, the handle and retainer snap and wobble, and the steering wheel is stripped and wobbling.

This product is okay if your child is content just pedalling around, but try to pick anything up or use it like a tractor, and you'll find very quickly that most of the price of the unit does not seem to go into quality, but likely goes to John Deere for the licensing fee!

Ours goes back to Toys'R us.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great outdoor toy, but beware of plastic parts!
This loader tractor was given as a Christmas gift to my son when he was 2 1/2. He has loved it to pieces! Back then we were stuggling to find a peddle toy that he could sit on the seat and reach the peddeles. The that summer he was 36" tall and it was easy for him to peddel. The chain drive allowed him to move at a good walking pace for his mother so that summer we put miles on this bike.
That being said, I must caution readers that this bike is all plastic except the chain drive and the screws that hold it together. The ROPS bar is for show. The fenders can not take weight. The loader is not for hauling heavy things.
We have had durablity problems with this toy. My son rides it hard but I'd say the problems stem from plastic-to-plastic connections having too much flex and eventutally the screw or bolt falls out. The seat keeps coming off. And ours has not been a loader tractor for quite sometime as the end clamp fell off that and we've not replaced it. Lastly the tires are plastic too. Our rear tires have holes in them because of hard use.
Finally, My brother said it was an adverture to assemble and he is very handy.

Overall, I recommed this tractor. Its not too offen you can say your child wore a toy out! All that peddeling, uphill and downhill over and arround has been quite a benifit, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great toy for a boy
My 3-year old son is absolutely happy riding this tractor on the playground. I didn't install the loader for safety reasons / maneuverability (the playground is crowded, and it's hard to steer the tractor precisely with the loader attached). One strange feature of this tractor (which appears to be shared by other ride-on toys and carts for some unexplained reason) is that only ONE rear wheel is connected to the chain transmission. The other three wheels are free-spinning, so this is essentially a "one-wheel drive". Sales reps. at Toys R Us were clueless as to the strange design, so it remains a mystery. Nevertheless, the traction of the left rear wheel (the driving one) has so far been sufficient; no skidding. Pedal-drivennes of this tractor is one good feature I want to mention; besides giving the kid an exercise, it eliminates the pain of having to recharge the battery after a day's drive and wait for another day till the toy can be used again. ...

Editorial Review

Fully equipped for the uber rescue mission, this souped-up spacecraft doubles as a jet and a Rescue Heroes command center. The top of the jet flips open to reveal an electronic screen and an operations deck, where Keytron, a robot, plugs into the control board to relay missions to the team. Included are two tethered backpacks which, as Rescue Heroes fans know, allow the action figures to communicate. What's more, the jet itself transforms into a giant robot, with a deployable space pod as the head and a tank-like tough-terrain vehicle down below. This is a sturdy, sizable toy that those who enjoy Rescue Heroes ought to love, and it contains plenty of moving parts. Also included is a C.D. Moon action figure in a red space suit. --Andy Boynton ... Read more

Editorial Review

A train you can ride on? That moves by itself? It's hard to imagine any child not being excited by this prospect. The Santa Fe Train offers an amusement park experience in your own house. Assembly is a snap, literally. The track pieces click together with no problem, and it's so obvious how to assemble the train, you almost don't need the manual. If you feel prepared to take it on, this train set can make for a spectacular birthday or holiday present. In the interests of instant gratification, however, be sure to charge up the battery the night before. Some other considerations for parents: This toy takes up a lot of space: at a bare minimum, 12 square feet. It may have limited replay value, since you can go around and around a track only so many times, even if you are 4 years old. And it requires a bit of maintenance in that you must keep the battery charged up. --David Stoesz ... Read more

Easily off balance
I read all the wonderful reviews and decided to get this train for my 2 year old for his birthday. Product is well crated, assembly simple. I am not sure whether the charger is operating as instructions suggest (green light is always on rather than signalling when battery is charged). Maybe that battery has never gone low when I charge.

My primary problem with the train though is that my child has fallen off of it 3 times. Now to ride it I have to stand in the middle of the track and spin around and around with him to spot him (i.e catch him or prevent him from falling). If he leans SLIGHTLY to the outside, (like turning to see his mom) the train de-rails or falls off the track side ways on to him.

I don't know how all the others had such positive experiences. My hope is my son will gain skill in keping the train on the track and will find it interesting, but any kid that comes to visit, we will have to 'spot'. I guess the educational value of this train for my son is learning to balance on a badly designed moving toy that has a narrow base and has a constantly shifting center of gravity (due to turning on track).

Bottom line - my kid prefers the $6 mega-blocks truck he got to this (...)train.

Great for little boys!!
Received this for xmas 2003, and my just 2 year old and 4 year old sons love this! They spend hours riding around. I've only used it so far on the track, so not sure about use without it. I'm buying a second battery because they ride it for hours and have a fit when I have to recharge it. They received tons of gifts from Santa, and this is by far the most used and loved. I would recommed this to anyone with small children. My 2 year old walked around holding the button down until he felt comfortable riding on it. LOVE THIS TRAIN, and only wish I could ride on it!!!

EVERY LITTLE BOYS' DREAM
THIS TRAIN I NEVER THOUGHT COULD BE SO USEFUL. NOT ONLY FOR MY SON, BUT FOR ME IT WAS A RELIEF. HE WOULD SPEND A LOT OF TIME RIDING IT WHILE I WAS BUSY DOING STUFF AROUND THE HOUSE. THE BATTERY IS VERY DURABLE. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THE SPACE ISSUE BECAUSE I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT AND THE FIRST THING YOU SEE WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR IS THE TRAIN BECAUSE IT'S BETWEEN THE LIVING ROOM AND DINING AREA. OTHER THAN THAT IT'S A LOT OF FUN.

have owned it for 2 years, and it *IS* a fun ride on.
Bought it for his first birthday, My son is not very timid, so he was fine with it -- but we held him while going round and round on the track -- he just loves it!. He would use it like a walker himself too, pushing the the black button for little spurts of movement and walking along side.
The track does take up a lot of room, so since we have hardwood floors, I've put the track in storage in the garage for now, and it works great, except of course that at 18 months, while my son can now ride securely by himself and climb off with no problems, he still cant turn it once he gets stuck in the furniture etc. I think the track will get fished out shortly since he loves to play for 30 to 45 minutes at a time riding on it and as an SAHM I'd prefer not to stay right by him to rescue him every other minute when he is otherwise so happy playing. He has now figured out which button does what just fine! Its wonderful that you have to hold it down to move. There is no question of it not stopping when baby wants it to stop and him not knowing how to throw a switch or something. He likes to give blocks and stuff a ride in the back too.
Its very easy to assemble, and having the battery secure is very important to me since my son has excellent fine motor skills and gets into EVERYTHING! So while that means five minutes everytime we want to charge the batteries, its no big deal for the safety plus. It seems durable and has stood up to lots of 2-4 year old visitors well too!

Update after 2 yrs and my now 3 yr old -- he still loves it! It has moved on out to the patio and yard, with a tarp for bad weather. He's finally figured out how to manouver it minus tracks too.
Pros: Great fun when other kids are around. Teaches taking turns and sharing. Very safe battery compartment. It gets played with only 10-15 min at a time, so I have to recharge maybe once a month, and have replaced the sound effects battery only once after a year.
Cons: Derails an awful lot especially the trailer, takes up a ton of room with the track. trailer lid snapped off with some rough handling. No Steering possible without the track(maybe need a large strong build to manouver) I would invest in this for a 12 - 18 mo old child, but unless its a small build child, they will have outgrown both interest and size(45 lb limit) by 3 or 4 yrs old. It has been a hit ride-on toy, and much cuter than other battery ride-ons. All the kids make a bee line for it when they head out, and are very disappointed if I've failed to charge it. A charge still lasts for about 2 hrs straight of play.

Sally's Train Ride
I had this train shipped to my neice up in Juneau, Alaska. Apparently it was the highlight of her 2.5 year-old day. Every kid should have this train...whistle, engine and bell sounds are real sounding and WOW...what a cool toy. ... Read more

Got Our Son Walking EARLY.
Love this.. got it as a gift and it was great. My son started pushing it around at about 8 months.. just a little at a time and by 10 1/2 months was walking on his own. He still loves this wagon, he puts his toys in it and then takes them out, and now he likes to climb into it (much to our dismay of course) Some of the reviewers said it wasn't great bc the wheels don't turn but a beginning walker doesn't need that really. This wagon is great bc it is heavy and really helps with balance, they will plow over anything in their way!

Sturdy little walker...
I wish we had gotten this little wagon/walker. We bought a plastic Fisher Price walker and my son obviously senses it's lack of mass. Our friends bring this Radio Flyer walker to the park and my son (11 months) pushes it around. Even though the wheels don't adjust, it's sturdy enough that he can put some weight on it without it flying out from under him. It's a winner.

High quality, but a little hard to maneuver
PROS:
- high-quality, sturdy construction
- wooden "sides" are removable, for more versatility
- great for learning walkers (wheels offer slight resistance)
- good for indoor or outdoor play
- little ones can sit in it, if one or two sides are removed
- easy to keep it moving in a straight line

CONS:
- a little hard to maneuver around turns (none of the wheels "turn" to the left or right) ... Read more

Barbie Jeep
My daughter got her Barbie Jeep for Christmas and the battery will no longer hold charge. She has enjoyed the music that came along with the Jeep more than the Jeep itself.

All the years of waiting were worth it!!!!
We bought this for our daughter that just turned 5. She wanted this for years but we could never afford it. She loves it and has a great time. I also have a 2 year old daughter that loves taking rides with her big sister. There is plenty of room for both of them and they enjoy listening to the Barbie tunes while they are cruising though I wish the tunes played a bit louder so you could hear them over the engine. There's a lot of storage so when we walk to the park, I can keep our snacks in there. I think it will still be in great shape when it gets passed down to my youngest child since the quality seems pretty good. Overall, I love this and I'm so happy my daughters love it too.

movement
a wonderful toy and kids love it howerver, it do not run well on
grass with light weight kids age 3-5, the wheels spins, work well with heavier kids age 3-5 years

Great toy!
I bought this jeep for my 4 year old granddaughter about 2 years ago to ride in my yard. This year I've taken the pin out so that it will go 5 mph and she wouldn't have it any other way. She has become a pro at it! Wanting to ride it every time she is over here. She loves practicing reversing, 3 point turns and pulling up to park in "her" parking space (great experience for the future). She rides it all over the place and knows where she can go and NOT go. She was recently given an old plastic toy gas pump from a neighbor, which she will pull up to and "pump her gas". She especially loves to go over any bumpy or hilly areas she can find. She has NEVER had any kind of accident with it. I know that as long as she can fit into it...she'll be riding it. Well worth the money. My advise would to be to have an extra battery on hand.

A Jeep Like Mommy and Daddy's
Our 2yr. old daughter was thrilled to have a Jeep like mommy and daddy's. But i have heard that the batteries don't last long. Well she is almost three now ( in a week) and the only time that we have charged the battery was when we got it. And it still workes great. It has been left out in the rain and ran into countless trees and fences, and yet still looks brand new. I would recomend this to anyone. This was such a great buy that in a yr when our son turns two we are getting him the jeep fire rescue power wheel. ... Read more

Big Fun, Huge Castle
I bought this for my 2-year-old son and he absolutely loves it. We bought the suggested pump for it ($9.99) and it was worth every penny, made set up a breeze. I wish I had known how big the castle was set up, as we planned on keeping it in our living room and soon found out it's way too big. So I will give you the demensions for the actual product 85"Lx76"Wx45"H. Hope this helps, if you've got the room, the kids will have a great and safe time jumping. We are strongly considering the box of 100 balls at this time because the 25 balls that are included are dwarfed in this giant castle.

COOL!
Our 22 month old grandson loves this and it only took him about 5 seconds to get truly into it.

Very difficult to blow up. Took a very long time with 9 chambers. Should include pump ... Read more
