I bought this for my 2 yr old's birthday because my older son has loved and used his Maxi Scooter (the bigger version of this one) for years. My 2yr old was hesitant to use it at first, but we put it on a slight slope and walked alongside him while he rolled down the slope. He quickly got a hang of it, and now races around on it. I really like this scooter for several reasons-- the ride is very smooth and the wheels turn without much effort, the steering is easy (you just lean from side to side instead of having to actually turn a handlebar), and it stays standing when not in use (since it has 3 wheels instead of the regular 2). Although it is pricier than other scooters, I think it is worth the extra money.
