My son received this for Christmas at almost 8 months old and even though he wasn't walking yet he loved sitting on the floor playing with the gators and pulling it back and forth and watching what happened. Now that he is starting to walk he will cruise all over with this. My only complaint is the wheels don't turn so they have to go in a straight line. I do love how sturdy and well built it is, I think we will be able to use it for many children. It's much better than the cheapy plastic ones.
