I bought this for my 1 year old granddaughter and wow! She loved it. It does take a little time for little bitties to feel confortable on the toy. It has 2 wheels up front which is really helpful for balance. She needed some support at first, but now she is slowly skooting along. And that is what we liked about it. On carpet it is slower. Which is perfect for kids learning out. But once the kiddos are more comfortable and have learned the balance act, moving to hard flooring they will zip along. I am so glad I found this!
