I bought the MacRide for me and my children to be able to take my grandchildren for rides. My son actually used it first and, afterwards, I asked the question, "Was it instant smiles and fun for the kids like all the glowing reviews said, or not?" The answer was YES!!! I then took it to a small family gathering where all of my grandchildren were and they all went for a ride and did not want to stop. They were all fighting for the chance to ride again and even the 18 month old had to be dragged away screaming in a fit of rage because he could not monopolize the MacRide. My 5 y/o autistic grandson was in a different world and was all smiles and giggles, but also had to be dragged away crushed that he could not continue to ride. In the end, all the kids LOVED it so much that it was obnoxious to the parents because it caused so much fighting for the chance at "just one more ride, PLEASE!" So if you want total exuberant chaotic heavenly happiness, then buy one. But if you only buy one to share between 10 grandchildren, then prepare for WW3!!! Absolutely a fantastic product in both quality and function... hats off to its creator!!! Also, I accidentally ordered a blue one instead of black, and although it was my fault, and although I did not take up Glen's & Ashley's (Co-Owners) creative offer to get me the black one I wanted, they were totally willing to go the extra ten miles to make me happy. That rates superbly as well!
