Big Flyer® is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUR DAREDEVIL LOVES IT We bought your "big wheels" type toddler cycle for our grandson for his 2nd birthday. Our decision was made based on your long standing reputation and it seemed to be just the right size for him (2 years old). He rides the thing constantly and has become quite a dare devil on it according to our daughter! We would highly recommend this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality and Instructions are Great I just put it together and am pleased with the instructions and quality. Since I value durability I don't feel I could fairly give this a 5 until it is put to further use to test the durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one wish The only reason it is 4 instead of 5 stars was that the wheels should be made of real rubber and not the plastic type of wheel. I see these wearing down faster than regular rubber would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nostalgic big wheel trike I feel like this is the closest thing to the sturdy big wheels from when I was a child. The product came together very nicely and was very straight forward to assemble. My son has yet to ride this outside as it is still cold out, but it looks like it will

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Bought my grandson this flyer for his 3rd birthday. Ordered him a thumbBell to attach to handlebars and he is set. Quality product and all tricked out with bright color, decals and racing pennant. He will grow with and enjoy this item for several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent and way better then the one I had growing up Bought one for my 3 1/2 year old son 3 months ago, he loves it and has no problems riding it what so ever. It's his favorite toy, even his Kid traxx police charger now sits in the garage now. An excellent buy and quality is the best I have ever seen on a BIG WHEEL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandson love it. I purchased the Big Flyer last week for my grandson. He loves it and we have to get him in out of the heat because he just wont get off of it. His legs weren't long enough but his grandmother made a bean bag filled with rice that goes behind him to move him forward enough to reach the pedals. We have not had any issues with the tire slippage on clean smooth concrete or the asphalt drive way. His mother grew up on the old style big wheel and wishes hers had been as nice as the Radio Flyer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fun but poor quality After 9 months of use both (we bought 2, one for each son) of the big wheels back tires are cracked. For this kind of money I would expect them to last longer!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride! My 7 year old can pedal so fast she always pass the dog and I on our walks. Is all about the her leg muscles from swimming and the trampoline. She's small for 7 and have the seat in the second position, hope to get another year out of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of fun... but not high quality My kids loved this big wheel and I would have given it a 5 star for that, but the quality brings it down to 3 for me. I bought it for a then 6, 5, and 3 yr old. They could all ride it, even the 3 yr old although it was a bit of a reach for her at first and she is tall. This is not something that will work for a small 3 yr old. But then this is not like buying a tike, it's a big wheel meant for older kids. Like I said, they loved it. Only problem is it lasted one summer. The flag broke off the first week, no big deal but right at a year of use (and of course right outside any warranty) both back wheels cracked and broke. Now it's a shame that the replacement wheels are $15 each because for $15 more I can buy a new big wheel at my local superstore. It it were $10 each or 2 for $15 I'd replace them. I won't buy a new Radio Flyer however because I'll put my money into a better, higher quality big wheel that will last longer for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this trike several years ago. It has now being used by my 4th kid. All my kids have loved it, and have riden it hard. They can really go fast. Occasionally the front tire will slip a little when first taking off, but very minimal compared to all others I've seen. Just now my front tire has worn out. The back tires are still in great shape. This has been a favorite toy for years. I'm am ordering a new front tire today. I just saw some disappointing reviews and my kids would argue with them. My three year old is now riding it and he can reach the pedals. He is tall for his age and stretches a little, but has no problem keeping up with his older siblings. My sister bought one after seeing ours. She also has 5 kids. They love it too and have no problems with theirs. Still looks brand new and has went through 2 kids. And yes, they both are used a lot - DAILY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandkids love it! I was lucky enough to find one at a rummage sale - both grandsons loved it! So much that I bought a second one. Neither grandson had a problem with the tires like the other reviewers stated. Considering I compared a used one and brand new one (side by side) and both performed beautifully! They prefer it over every other bike they have and they have quite a few. Two wheel bikes, other brands of big wheels, scooters and other various ride-ons.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Usable! We bought this for our son last year knowing he had to be 3-7 to use it. Our son is 3 now, very tall for his age. He has not been able to reach the paddles! My daughter is 4 and she can't reach it either. Very disappointed. To much money for something we can't use. I feel bad resealing it because who wants to buy a tricycle for a 5 year old since a 3 year and a 4 year old cant use it? I looks great but not usable.
