I bought this last night for my son's 4th birthday and this morning I took it back. The plastic footpad area seemed very flimsy and it was not large enough for both feet. The double wheels in the rear serve no purpose because this thing tips over at the slightest tilt of the rider or even if you bump it as you walk past it. It tipped so easily, my son was afraid to get another scooter and I had to convince him to try the new one we bought. We instead bought the Radio Flyer My 1st Scooter, with the extra wide foot area, and so far he loves it. Plus it was [....] less than the Hot Wheels scooter.
I would not recommend this product to anyone. You are paying for the lights and sounds while getting a far inferior product.
