My kids have loved this toy!
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.

Awful
Comments about Product:
Great idea but poorly executed. Almost impossible to put together without breaking the wooden piece that must be bent in a semi-circle to install. As difficult as the assembly is, getting a whole kit with the right parts or parts that are machined properly is even more difficult. So far we have had to order three kits and still do not have one functioning toy.

I agree: READ REVIEWS BEFORE ASSEMBLING
Comments about Product:
Hubby and I read all the reviews before even ordering. Upon appearance, this is exactly what I wanted for our baby girl. I asked him if he was up for the "challenge" of assembly and he said yes, so we ordered it. We hadn't attempted to put it together until today since we ordered it earlier than her first birthday, but with it coming up in a week, I wanted to get it together. We did EXACTLY what other reviewers said. We did it together and we steamed the thin piece of wood prior to trying to bend it. It was easy. Literally I took two dish clothes, soaked them In warm water, wrapped the wood fully and left them on my counter wrapped up for about half hour. Then a pulled out my iron set on high steam filled it with water and ironed the wood thru the dish towels. Ironed for a couple minutes on both sides and hubby then took it to start the bending. It worked fine. It did take two of us to guide it into the slots, but it went in pretty quick. Total time to put together was less than an hour as the rest of it we built while the wood was "soaking". Easy breezy and highly recommended.

Love!
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!

Great product
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.

Immediate joy!
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.

Alternative to wooden bucket
Comments about Product:
Like other folks trying to assemble the wooden bucket portion, we broke the plywood piece trying to bend it into the groove even though we wetted it. Magic Cabin was very good about sending us a replacement piece, but we decided to look for something else to use instead. It seemed like the base would crack easily once our daughter started to play with it anyway. My husband came home with a $7 sheet of clear polycarbonate from [@] that he cut down to size, and this worked wonderfully. The manufacturer should use this material instead! It seems a little ridiculous to have to purchase something else when you've already paid [$] for this toy, but I think it will make it a lot more durable and the plastic actually looks pretty good with the rest of the parts.

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.

Comments about Product:
I have to start by saying that I love this toy--it is unique and fun to use...it is just a PAIN to put together. I hope that my trial and error can make your assembly a little easier. Although I was extremely careful when bending the thin plywood that forms the bottom of the cart (I followed the instructions exactly), my first piece snapped. Magic Cabin's customer service is excellent, and they quickly sent me a replacement part. The second time around, we had great success putting in the piece of plywood by prepping it first (more than the quick little bend suggested in the instruction book). To make the plywood flexible enough to bend without cracking we used moist heat. We wrapped the plywood in a wet towel and ironed it (with the iron on its highest setting with maximum steam). After 10 minutes or so of ironing, we bent it a few times and it was flexible enough to CAREFULLY insert into the grove of the side of the cart. It still took two people and long time to assemble, but it didn't crack!! My daughter has been playing with it for a few months, and it has held up great. I have only used this as a push cart so far, but one thing I really like is that the wheels don't move too fast for my little newbie walker. I hope that helps--good luck!

Comments about Product:
I assembled the pull-behind version alone, and even got the "crackable" wood inserted in the frame.Would be easier w/ 2 people..kept at it for over an hour, and only glithch was seat screw hole on one side needed reaming out to get bolt thru. Took long time to do that...Phew...my airplane-building husband will be amazed...Off to celebrate .... :)MDB, Michigan

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.

Love it!
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.

Great product but majorly flawed.
Comments about Product:
We read the reviews and knew that there would probably be an issue with the wooden bottom that everyone says cracks but we decided to give it a shot anyway. Assembly was fine, no issues. Once home I heard a cracking sound and said piece was cracking all over before my eyes without being touched. We are currently looking for a suitable replacement, some type of flexible plastic material, because I see no point in ordering a replacement plank for the same thing to happen again. We really love it other then this issue and hope that the company will start using a different material.

Adorable, Hard to build, and some flaws.
Comments about Product:
I love this toy, and I would buy it again, but the instructions were hard to read, pictures only, and my husband could not build it himself. It was a team effort to build. Getting the basket constructed almost defeated us. Then, the pins that hold the basket steady have both fallen out, making the basket tilt and also creating a choking hazard for my one-year-old. They will need to be glued back in, which I hope will not interfere with converting it to the other modes in the future.

Easy to use, difficult to assemble
Comments about Product:
I bought this for my granddaughter's first birthday. She loved it immediately. She is not walking on her own yet, but she took to this right away. It is the correct size and easy for her to walk behind and push. The main thing that is not so great is the wood on the basket, it cracked in several places. I have to get a replacement part. The rest of the unit is constructed quite well. My daughter, who is an engineer, assembled it and said it was very involved. Thank goodness she was there.

THINK TWICE ABOUT PURCHASING THIS!
Comments about Product:
We purchased this for our granddaugher hoping it would help her with the walking process. We read all the reviews stating how difficult it was to put together. My husband is VERY handy, but this one piece of very flimsy wood that you have to bend into a circle cracked three times!!! We tried to be sooo careful but to no avail. We said the only way we would purchase this product for [$] is if the manufacturer sent assembled. That didn't happen so we returned. Think twice about purchasing this.

great product
Comments about Product:
My 1-year old loves her walker and we are almost ready to convert to the ride-on toy. Thus far it has been a great toy; her first act of play was to climb into the basket part. I was a little concerned, but it didn't break and has withstood a lot of in-and-out play in the last 6 months. It holds quite a bit and has become a movable toy bin. My 5-year-old has enjoyed it too. It was given to us as a gift and has been great fun for both of our kids. It was a little challenging to put together because of the piece you have to bend, but if you go slow, it is possible to construct without breaking the curved piece. I even managed to build it by myself!

Disapointed!
Comments about Product:
All of the pieces to this product are very well made except for the wood you use to make the basket part of this toy. It's sturdy enough but during assembly breaks again and again. I was so excited to get this for my twins who were not showing interest in walking. We were never able to use it. See you have to bend this piece of wood and fit it into these groves. it snaps and cracks every time.[...]They should make the basket out of cloth with platic on the edges that need to slide into groves. Maybe that would work.At anyrate I would find a different grow with me walker.

Best Walker Available!!
Comments about Product:
LOVE, LOVE this walker! I did an absurd amount of research trying to find a quality walker for our daughter and am so pleased I chose this one. This is not one of those cheap, flimsy plastic walkers that seem to be ubiquitous, this is an aesthetically BEAUTIFUL item. When we take it to the park we constantly receive compliments and inquiries about it and other children are drawn to play with it. Magic Cabin is the only company smart enough to carry it:) I must admit, it is nice for our daughter to have a toy that not EVERYONE else has. It is a VERY sturdy,solid, high quality toy. The one and only flaw it has has to do with the designer's desire to maintain the all-wood beauty of the item by having the bottom part of the bucket made of thin plywood. DO NOT PUT IT TOGETHER AS THE DIRECTIONS SUGGEST. Instead, before fastening the side pieces, first fit the plywood into them and gently bend them to curve it to the slot. Then attach the side pieces and attach the other side of the bucket. I found it very easy to put together and the tools you need are all included in case you need to tighten or adjust it. The overall design is great, it goes over grass, cement carpet so my daughter can use it anywhere. It is low and wide for maximum sturdiness and she loves putting toys in the bucket to push around. Most importantly, my daughter LOVES it and gets a huge smile on her face when she pushes it around. I will be excited to transform it to the next level when she is ready for it!

Comments about Product:
Great walker for those early learners. Stable, and functional. I cannot wait to convert it to the tricycle. My grandson loves it and mom likes the storage for toys. Quality design and materials but assembly was difficult. You have to actually bend the base for the bucket and fit into a small slot. This part took 2 people, but well worth the effort.

Comments about Product:
I really like the idea of this product as it grows with my daughter, and it's pretty easy to assemble. Unfortunately the green wooden laminate started to splinter and come off after a month of pretty gentle use. [...] I just sanded it down. We still use today having had it for about a year.

Wanted to love it, but....
Comments about Product:
This product seemed like the best gift for our 1 year old daughter. Got it loved it for about 2 weeks until the basket part broke. It didn't take much since the wood is flimsy and very thin. Great customer service, they sent out whole new one free of charge. But, it didn't take long for the second one to break also. The wood for the basket is just too thin, the rest of it is nice sturdy wood though. So, instead of sending it back again we simply detaced the basket (rear part) from the bike design and use it as just a bike. Unfortunatly we will not be able to use it in any of the other designs. If Magic Cabin fixed the wood design for the basket this would be a great product!

Comments about Product:
This is a great toy for toddlers, especially since it transforms into three different uses. Our only complaint is that one of the parts (a thin sheet of wood) has to be bent into a semi-circle and it's almost impossible not to crack it during assembly. Otherwise, I love the design and the solid wood - our son will be able to enjoy this for years!

Our daughter absolutely loves this toy. She used it while learning how to walk and now she uses it as her bike. She absolutely loves riding it around outside.

Comments about Product:
Overall I am very pleased with this product. from 1 year old to 4 years old it has been enjoyed. I love the variety you have in the ways to use this toy. It is well make which I always appreciate! We had the hardest time finding a push toy that a one year old almost walking could use that was well made yet not a waste of money because it was outgrown too quickly. This was the perfect answer! The only con is that in the building process you have to curve the piece for the bed and get it into the proper grooves on two sides...challenging to say the least. Other than that it's great. The only improvement could be nicer tires to encourage outside use more.
