There are so many different ones, just wondering which are good, or if you had a not so good one. Why they are good or bad.

The first ride on we got our 16 month old was the Tonka Scoot 'N Scoop

We bought it for him when he was around 9 months old I think.  Then, this past Christmas his Grandpa got him a Radio Flyer Roadster

While he looks really cute on either of these toys, he still doesn't get how to "scoot".  He stands up and "walks" with it between his legs.  Until he masters how to scoot, we aren't gonna attempt anything with peddles yet.  The Tonka one helped him when he was first learning to walk.  The seat goes to an up position and gives something to hold on to for them to push.  Hope this is helpful.

My son's first riding toy was a car made by Little Tykes. The thing I loved about it was the handle on the back. I could push him through the neighborhood and he could turn the steering wheel and beep his horn. Now he has a Radio Flyer tricycle that also has a handle. He can peddle and make it go or I can push him while he rests his feet.

Once again I agree with Stephanie, I haven't seen one of those in person, but it looks like the front wheels would get in the way of your little one trying to walk.

plus it being your childs first ride on you want them to have some support with them being so young.

Seats are too wobbly on those. Had a friend who had one of those. Not very sturdy.

I'd say that one looks pretty good.  And I agree with Stephanie about the style where the seat lifts up.  My daughter got that style as a hand me down and she always picked her wheely bug over it.  But the one you pointed out looks good to me, handles in the front and a high back, it should get the job done.

those are actually great for first timers. Just dont go with the ones with the lift up seats and all the toys along the front. They break very easily.

I guess right now I am looking for a beginner ride-on toy.  I've seen some starting at 10months, but most of the ones I have seen are for 12 months and up.  Here is an example of one I am wondering about

Hope that clarifies what I am looking for. :)

There are so many different kinds out there, I'm not quite sure what kind you are looking for, but my daughter loves her Wheely Bug www.wheelybug.com/products.html They come in 2 different sizes.  We like it because it doesn't make noise, no batteries required, she can pick the speed she wants to go at and it can go in any direction.  We love it.

Well if you are buying for a boy I would recommend the playschool motorcycle. My 3 yr old loves it and it has proven to be quite sturdy. We've had some of the little cars we had to replace because they just fall apart.
