With not one, not two, but three or more different ways to use this innovative apparatus as your child grows, it's certain to bring years of enjoyment. Babies ages 9 to 24 months use it as a walker (with wagon!) when they take their first steps; it also easily converts to a fun scoot-along ride so that toddlers 12 to 36 months can tote toys along with them; and kids 3 and up can employ it as a pretend-play shopping cart, doll buggy and toy trolley. It's sturdily made from solid wood with smooth-rolling plastic wheels. Adult assembly required; sorry, gift wrap not available.

Comments about Product: We have had this product for about 4 years now and are almost ready to pass it along. We have used it in all three of its modes and it has been great. I didn't have any trouble with assembly and it has held up well. I would absolutely recommend this product especially if you are looking for something that will grow with your kids.

Comments about Product: Love, love, love this walker, trolley, cart! Quality design and construction! Followed others advise on heat and steam to bend plywood sheet...worked great! Wouldn't try to bend without steaming board with wet towel and iron first. Otherwise very simple to assemble. My 9 month old daughter loves it! However, it does roll a bit too fast for her to push alone and there is no way of tightening the wheels so they roll slower. I have a feeling this toy will last a long time and be lots of fun for years to come! Magic Cabin was also wonderful to deal with...I forgot to put in my code for free shipping and I emailed them a note upon following my transaction and they honored the code. It took 1 week from time of order to arriving at my doorstep! Again...great product, great store, and better for the environment! I love wooden toys!

Comments about Product: It was a little difficult to assemble. I followed someone else's advise on for bending the flat board using heat and moisture. It worked great. Board did not break! My 10 month old daughter is very happy using it for assistance in walking. It does not go so fast that she falls. I'm very satisfied with product. Even my 5 yr old boy was excited about it. I can see this product will hold my daughters interest for some time!

Just as we hoped
Comments about Product: We purchased this for our 1 year old, as she loves to walk around the house and pick up her toys. This cart is perfect for her to put her "trinkets" in, and we love, love, love that it is sturdy and doesn't tip over when she pushes down on the handle (like others we tried before. We can't speak for the other uses, but I imagine she will love it just as much.
My husband had no problem putting it together, but said the directions weren't all that helpful.
My only complaint is that the cart is fairly large and therefore heavy for her to turn as she moves about the house.

Great product; easy assembly
Comments about Product: We loved the look of this product, but were a bit wary when we read reviews about the difficulties associated with assembling. Much to our surprise, two of us assembled it in less than an hour, with no trouble. We heated a very damp towel in microwave, then wrapped the carriage board in it and left it for 2-3 minutes. Then had no trouble bending it in the groove. Began on one side and tapped it in with a small hammer,working our way round. VERY satisfied with this product.

Comments about Product: I was hesitant about this purchase because of the concern for assembly. I thought about it for over a year, and decided it was worth trying because it was the quality product i wanted. I read the various thoughts about assembly and decided on the wet towel and iron on the the wood so it would be flexible for assembly. It worked great!! We had no problems assembling and it was done in 20 minutes. It is a beautiful carriage. My 2 year old granddaughter immediately started walking around and she plays with it daily. Don't shy away from this toy because of assembly; use the wet towel and iron idea and it assembles smoothly and it is beautiful.

Great product, good price
Comments about Product: My one year old daughter loves this product. She was already able to walk when we got it for her for her birthday but loves pushing it around the house with her piggy and other toys in the basket. It is sturdy and does not tip over easily at all when pushed or pulled nor when she climbs inside of the basket which she does quite often to my dismay. NOt sure how the riding portion works as we have only used it as a push cart.
Cons: my husband had some difficulty in putting the item together. Thankfully he works with wood and does lots of carpentry items around the house so he was able to work it out.

Great product for growing kids.
Comments about Product: Love the product. My baby has had fun with it once she got the hang of pushing it. She is still young and small so we've only used it as a push cart. Only thing I don't like is the bucket design and the material used, thin plywood. It cracked slightly after she climbed into it. It could be designed squared off and using thicker pieces of wood.

1-2-3 and Beyond!
Comments about Product: My one-year-old daughter loves this product! Right now she uses it as a push along. She keeps her treasures safe inside. Unexpectedly, it is a favorite of her older brothers, age four, as well!

Comments about Product: After seeing the reviews I was hesitant to have the grandparents get this as a first birthday gift, but we went ahead anyway. I assembled it today after having it wait in the box for 2 weeks thinking my husband would do it (the engineer), as I was a little intimidated.
After sorting out all the pieces and starting I can totally see how people could break the slightly unbendy basket piece. This being said, there is a diagram in the instructions that shows that piece being bent a few times. I did this repeatedly before even attempting to put it into the slots which really seemed to help. There was a little bit of cracking on the edges but nothing that can be see when it is put together and it still works perfectly. The key to putting that piece in is patience, patience in bending it around the curve slowly. I put one side in and gently bent it into the groove, sometimes having to take it out and redo it. Was this a PITA??? Heck yeah, but it was worth putting in a little extra time to do it right.
We now have an awesome little push toy for my daughter who is cruising but not walking alone yet. Its a little bigger than I expected but she still loves it, and loves putting her toys in the basket and taking them out.
This toy seems like it is made of quality materials and will last through multiple kids. I'm excited to have her use the other features too when she gets older.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
