This whirly rocket made by little tikes is recommended for ages 3 and up, which is probably pretty accurate, although one problem little ones have it getting it to spin, it is alot harder, especially with two kids, to get to spin then a sit n spin or something of the like due to it's size. It is much larger in comparison. I like that it accomodates two childen at one time easily or also can be used by just one child.

It is constructed well of heavy duty plastic and quite durable. My son, almost 5, and his friends, almost 7, still play on this quite often, but they still like an adult to spin them vs them doing it themselves. It makes them go super fast if an adult spins it.

One issue I do not like is that it seems to easily mold for some reason. We have several little tikes items and I have never really seen anything like this one the way mold will grow on it sometimes. I mean it takes a super long time, but just pretty unusual for a little tikes toy to do that at all. Also the blue dye in the turn handle fades after time to this ugly blue and I do not care for it at all once that hs happened. I am not sure why it fades so badly as the blues are usually okay. The red also faded, but only one side extremely bad, so it looks pretty darn ugly sitting in our yard after 3-4 years.

Overall, this is fun, but just not quite as great as I imagined.
