We bought a Joovy Tricycoo recently that I think is a much better product. More expensive, yes, but it has some really nice features the Kettler is lacking. Its front wheel is steerable by twisting the parent handle. It has a pedal lock/unlock that allows the pedals to spin freely for children who haven't figured out the pedals yet or a fold down footrest if they can't reach the wheel pedals. There's a set of seatbelt-like surround arms to keep toddlers in place and from falling off. For the prices, I'd take the Joovy over this.
