I read all the reviews before purchasing and decided some were bad some good. Unfortunately I had a bad experience. As stated by a previous reviewer, screws were missing from my box too. Even worse was the fact that the little circuit board on the motor was cracked (see photo). Rather than return it (really needed it for a special occasion) my husband got out wire and a soldering gun and fixed the problem. Not something most people can do. We replaced the 3 missing screws, fixed the cracked circuit board and the toy works well. I would recommend it for a child 2 years old but no older. It's cute but very small and not powerful enough to travel on anything but flat ground with a heavier child on it. I was hoping to be one of the lucky customers but I wasn't, I hope you are.
The item was extremely too small for my 3yr old nephew
Pros: Compared many different quads. Looking for forward and reverse which many didn't have. Make sure it says both directions in reviews. Good size. 14 months and up can ride this. It says for 2+ up but smaller can ride. Works on vinyl, carpet and outside. Wheels spin sometimes but a little push gets it going. Good price, got it on sale with free shipping. Make sure you charge battery for 9 hours before using. It says if you aren't using it you still must charge the battery every 30 days to keep it good.
Cons: 1) Check all parts before starting. See pics below. The 6 large screws included were not the correct size. Didn't include all screws and missing a seal. Most other reviews said the same thing. I gave up trying to put it together and got a friend to help. Finally putting in the battery we find a piece was broken off. This was a complete round piece with wires attached. After all the time putting it together I thought I'd have to return it. We put the battery in and it still for some reason worked. Hope it lasts. There was a wire attached to this broken part and we took it off.
2) Thought I could return it to the store but said I have to return by mail. I didn't see that when ordering. Check all pieces before starting. They don't sale this one in the stores. Brought red instead of pink for my granddaughter. Check all parts before putting it together.
I still think it was worth buying. Wouldn't have it I had to return it.
This comes with a battery, you should make full it is fully charged before you give it to the child...the reason...they are going to love it and not want to get off. It is easily assembled in about 10/15 minutes. I love the fact that it has a forward and reverse switch on the handlebar. The speed is perfect for a toddler. It is easy to get off and on. the steering wheel we moved around a few times to loosen it up...this is the 7th we have purchased for our grandchildren and it is a trick we learned long ago, and it helps loosen it up perfectly, we have done this to all, no matter the brand. I have to say, I am very pleased with the quality of the material and especially the tires. It goes well in our yard, in the house on carpet and wood floors, and linoleum. This is the 1st product I have purchased from this company, I am well pleased and will not hesitate to purchase from them. I highly recommend this product.
I bought this toy for my son who is 36 inch tall, 31 lbs. This product is far superior than similar ones I've seen from my friends. It runs well, steering easily without breaking it, long run before you have to recharge the battery, sturdy and stable. Shipping is fast. On a side note, best product is a truly honest company. They provide your return quickly and not trying to wear you out like other companies. I would recommend this toy for any toddlers between 19-4.5 yrs old.
