Don't waste your timeMay 31, 2012

"treehuggin granola pack"
I bought this out of nostalgia having had a Big Wheel as a child. Do not let the name fool you: this product in no way resembles the "original" in quality or function. Lets start with the assembly instructions or lack there of. Basically all you get is a schematic drawing with numbered steps. There are no written instructions. I am quite handy at do-it-yourself assembly and I struggled for 2 hours to put this thing together. It was too late last night for my son to try it out by the time I got it together so the first test drive was this morning before preschool. This is where the real disappointment comes in. The hand brake does not disengage, which may be too technical of a term for this flimsy braking mechanism. It rubs on the tire continuously. Adjustments are not possible. Compounding that problem is the fact that every tiny pebble on the sidewalk gets lodged between the brake and the tire making it impossible for the child to pedal the bike. My 5 year old announced this morning that hes was "indignified" by this frustrating test drive and stated "this isn't a very good Big Wheel. I like the one at Toys R Us better." From the mouths of babes. Going back to Toys R Us and buying the one I should have bought in the first place - the one Radio Flyer makes. It may not have a hand brake and may not be nostalgic but at least the kid could ride that one. As for this one: right back in the box it goes and I'm returning it.

"my kids matter"
got this for my sons BIG Christmas present. put it together Christmas eve and the rod that connects the tires was too short. thanks to ACE hardware we solved the problem BUT there should have never been as issue. also this is extremely light weight cheap plastic.....not like when we were kids.

Awesome ride-on toy!Sep 22, 2011
By Sarah F.
I put it together in less than an hour. No major problems. The hardest part was getting the rear axle through both axle holes. A little elbow grease and patience were needed, but it's nothing your typical mom (like me) can't handle.
My 5yo son LOVES it! And he loves the box, too!
Spin-out brake works great! The faster you go, the cooler the spin-out.
If needed later, you can order any Original Big Wheel part from their website. I won't post it out of respect for Amazon.com, but they don't sell directly from their site, anyway. Google it.
This thing is so cool I wish I could ride it, like I did back in the early 80's. The sound of the wheels cruising on the sidewalk brings back so many fond memories...
I'm pleased with this purchase in every way, and my son is, as well. Buy one!

Great bike!! Note: Color of parts may varyNov 27, 2011
I bought 2 of these for my niece and nephew, and they absolutely love it! Assembly didn't take that long. Make sure you put the rods through the bike before screwing the parts together to make assembly easier.
The color of the bike is just a little different than the picture displayed. The red base, wheels, and yellow handle bars are the same as in the picture; however, the seat and foot pedals are yellow, and both the hand brake and attachment from the base to the large wheel in the front are blue (opposite of what you see in the picture). If you look at the picture on the box (refer to 2nd image posted), they show 2 different color brakes (yellow on one bike and red on the other), so I assume the colors can vary aside from the red base and the yellow handle bars. Overall, the bike looks great, and the kids love riding it!

Ripped off!Jun 25, 2012
I bought 2 of these without reading the reviews. We get our grand-kids for only a few days a year for there birth day. we bout two of these for them and feel totally ripped off! the axle that says 21" was only 19 and one of the bikes came with only one rear wheel!! the manufacturer refused to overnight us a rear wheel so the kids will be long gone before it gets here!! Biggest waste of 200.00 dollars I have ever spent! please do yourself a favor and move on these bikes suck!
