Steering Wheel Won't Stay in!!!

My daughter loves her car. I bought it after visiting the playground and realizing she was the only kid without a car. It is AWESOME! Easy to steer and best of all she is happy to sit in it. Putting it together was not fun though. It has several pieces that are supposed to snap together and it was next to impossible to achieve that. Getting the steering wheel on in particular was hard. I had to sit in the car and my husband sat in front of me as we both pushed to get the wheel in place. I
thought my husband was going to blow a gasket he was so frustrated but we finally got it :-) I definitely wish we had gotten it earlier (1st birthday would have been best)
This is a fun toy. Unfortunately, the steering wheel won't stay in making the product next to useless for a child trying to simulate driving. This was an expensive Christmas mistake. Add to that, I waited on hold for a half an hour to request assistance on December 26 and when the operator came on she introduced herself and then promptly hung up. Repeat call backs were met with a busy signal. Poor customer service.
I bought this for my almost 1 year old son. My older daughter has the pink version from a few years ago. This is a much smoother ride and twists and turns with ease. It's super cute and both my kids love to ride it in (separately, of course). It took my husband about an hour to assemble it and he is pretty handy. Overall, a definite YES YES YES.
I guess everyone that has this rated so highly purchased it already put together. Otherwise this is a hunk of junk. I played with it for a half hour and can't get past putting the first axle on. Supposedly you "snap" it into the molded plastic grooves. To do this you have to pound to with a hammer. In any case even with a hammer I could not get the axle on. I returned it to[@].
I bought this for my daughter and she just loves it! It is light and easy to push and turn. She picks this over the rest of her ride-on toys. I hope that she does not outgrow this for a long time to come, but if she does, it will be passed down to other family members.
I could only find this at our local [@] which was wonderful because they had one all set up to try out. We LOVE the underside wheels which is what allows it to turn smoothly..like a hidden coaster wheel. The horn is a boring squeak but that's ok. My 10 month old loves to ride in this. I wish it had a sunshade, but put a baseball cap on and that will work too. Our model took quite sometime to put together. Alot of parts didn't line up especially the handle which my husba
nd was about readly to throw after over and hour worth of trying. We managed to make it work, but I really should just return it to [@] for a different one. I'm 5'7 and the handle is tall enough but could be a smidge taller. The cup holder is not designed to hold items such as hot liquids as it sways over the childs head hence the water bottle only feature. The cup holder at the steering wheel is larger for sippy cups/cans. The trunk space is separated compartment ( the knob for the wheel is in there)so a few small things will fit in , but don't plan on packing large items. The knob turns on and off so when you are not on a smooth surface, ie grass or rough terrain you bring the center wheel up and off and then push on the regular front and left tires. The seat belt is adequate it would be nice to see a third center crotch strap, but again, this is for older toddlers so it basically keeps the child from pulling forward and off the seat. they can still lean left/right and tip out/over if not watching. Overall this is a top notch product with loads of entertainment and use at a great price! And it's super cool looking too!
i had to write a review. we really love this buggy. we are not first time parents and previously owned both the original push around buggy and the whisper ride buggy.. they all have been great but not as great as this one. the original push around buggy worked well however those plastic wheels were quite loud. also in order to put the handle away to fit it in our trunk, we would have to pull out a knob for storage. It was a little smaller and was therefore outgrown faster. the whisper ride bugg
y was great,,it was a little bigger than the original and the wheels are really quiet however it did not have the option for folding the handle, or taking out the knob, like the original, so traveling with it was difficult. the other difference in the whisper ridde was also the electronic horn. this new buggy is great. it is wider than the others and roomier, it has the new steering option which is great. i guess if you have not driven the other buggys you would not notice it. but turning curves or just turning around on the other buggys was not very smooth,almost like dragging it, and it makes a great difference. we love it. and this buggy the handle can be folded down for storage and without taking out any knobs.this new buggy does not have the elecronic horn, however i was quite fine with that. i guess its a matter of preference, but for me this is better. with the whisper ride as soon as you even lightly just touch it, it would make noise, and it got a bit much for us. and yes, the cup holder on the handle will only hold a bottle of water, i imagine its for safety(i have to dissagree with a previous reviewer who wanted to put cup of coffe in it. Im not sure why someone would want to put a cup of hot coffe on the handle of a childs buggy while driving it, as it sits right above a childs head as it seems a little dangerous,just saying) bottom line is we love it.
