Hey everyone, I need some help. I'm considering getting my 5 y/o (well, 5 in Jan.) daughter and ATV or 4wheeler for Christmas. In the area we live, the streets are unsafe for a bicycle (busy and full of lead footed teens) and our property (1&1/4 acres) is bumpy, grassy, and has some small rocks in the driveway. We have a paved driveway up to the garage but a bike would be extremely limited to about 10 feet. Most of the Powerwheels have plastic wheels, which will not drive on our grass. She's had a couple of tricycles that have gotten stuck as soon as she gets off the cement.
So...here's my question: which is a good brand, size, type, etc. etc....I'm really lost on all the 50cc, 100cc, 2 stroke 4 stroke whatchamacallits....Does anybody have one for their kids that could offer some advice?? I know 2 things for sure: it has to have real tires and pass my safety inspection.
Thanks a lot.
