Not like they used to be
Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2020
I bought this for my son's first birthday because of course we were like "ooooh we had one of those when we were kids! Let us attempt to replicate our own childhoods upon our son". Well...um. Okay for one thing, this is rated 18 months and up, and my son is one year old and already he's close to being too big for this thing. Which would be less of a big deal if the thing weren't so cheaply made. The one we had as children (in the late 80s/early 90s) was made out of hard sturdy plastic and it took a beating under the butts of three kids. This thing? It's a pale shade of the sit and spin of yore. If he gains two more pounds and tries to sit on it, the plastic is going to start warping, I'm sure of it. I guess that's just how it is now though. Nothing is made with quality like it used to be. Everything is made as cheaply as possible in sweatshops overseas. Sigh.
