The Radio Flyer Scoot-About is a ride-on toy designed for 1-3 year olds. The front two wheels are set wide apart and the rear wheels are close together. It also comes with a bell and streamers on the handle bars.
This was our one year old's main Christmas present this year. We had it sitting out under the tree and it was the first thing she went to. She could easily climb on and off and immediately started pushing it backwards - right into all the other gifts. She still hasn't learned how to ride it forward - she just stands over the central bar and walks it around. But this is something she will learn as she develops and grows.
I was worried when looking at the pictures on-line that it might be tippy, but it is very steady and seems like it would take a lot of work to tip over.
This is a great first bike for any litlle boy or girl.
