I have been wanting one of these for my little girl for a long time. When I saw it on sale at Walmart I knew I just had to get it. The age suggestion on the box said 12 to 36 months, and my little one is now 13 months. She is right on target with the normal height and weight for her age so I figured it was going to be perfect for her. Unfortunately she's going to have to get a little taller before she can ride it on her own.
The first thing I loved about this zebra was the color and overall joyful look of it. The zebra has red tennis shoes on and is in a running position. It has a spinning part on top that is filled with little balls and flashes lights when the toy is being played with. It also has to spinning little animals on the sides of the handle that make the music and lights turn on. The handles are big enough and in a perfect spot for any aged kid to grab onto.
When the zebra is sat on and weighted down, it starts to play music, make fun noises. It smoothly spins around 360 degrees too. Right now my little girl can not reach the ground enough to bounce herself when sitting on it, so I bounce her while she holds on. She can basically get herself off, but I always keep a hand close in case she starts to fall. One thing I don't like about it is that the green platform it sits on is slightly slanted. This makes it a little tricky for her to get off without falling backward. As she gets older and taller it's not going to be a problem though.
