My son and I both love this!! He has gotten to big to be riding in one of those seats on the back, but he's still using training wheels, and can't keep up with us. This gives him the chance to learn more about riding with just two wheels, while still having the assurance that mommy is in control. Says for ages 4 and up, but he's just barely 3, and has no problems. I just put the seat all the way down for him. (he is a bit taller than your average 3yr old though) So.... althogether.... wonderful product!!! Only took about 15 minutes to put together.

I purchased 2 of these. Both were missing the assembly that attaches it to the larger bike. Took them back to store for replacments. Out of the large stack of them that we looked at none of them had the essential part and many had minor even major transprotation damage. I had the manufacture mail me the parts (took about a week). Within the first mile both bikes rear wheels locked up. This was fixable on the spot and with out tools but was clearly fault of the manufacture not tighening the rear sprokit into the rim. We ride almost everyday, 3-8 mile trips. This is the cheapest one of these I could find. In the end it works just as well as the more expensive models and is just as nice...

Comments about Toys 'R' Us Schwinn Runabout Trailer:

I've used this trailer bike a half dozen times now and it works well. My 4 y.o. daughter is 42" tall and I wouldn't advise putting a shorter kid on it, but it an OK size for her, and she loves it. I ride her to preschool, unhitch, and leave the trailer at the school then continue my commute. The trailer 'tongue' easily clears my rear rack and rear paniers. I like that the product is backed by a major brand.

The trailer is very solid, heavy, and probably overbuilt for its typical use. You will need a few tools (15mm and 10mm wrenches, 4-6mm allen wrenches if I recall). When you get the bike, go through all the bolts and nuts, including the pre-installed ones, and tighten them up, which takes about 5 minutes. Having a little grease around for the hitch joints is also probably a good idea. All the complaints about the rear axle slipping and causing the wheel to lock up are because the rear axle bolts were loose, which is a 30 second fix.

One thing that wasn't clear ahead of time is that the bike tounge folds. While convenient, the fold design seems weak. The weight of the bike holds the tongue straight and the hinge bolt is large, so unlikely to be a safety issue, but the 'keeper' knob bolt/plate that keeps the tounge locked straight appears weak and slipped open on me after a few rides after hand tightening. If this continues to be a problem, I'll put a hose clamp over this diagonal joint, which clearly would fix any issue. Besides this issue, the negatives I see are 1) the heavy weight, and 2) mountain bike treaded tires (why not slicks??). Still, this is a great value, and I would have been happy spending more for this trailer.

    Comments about Toys 'R' Us Schwinn Runabout Trailer:

    From the moment we hooked up the trailer my daughter was ecstatic. I was concerned as I had read several reviews that were not positive, but we have had no issues with this product. To the contrary we love it! Before I had my daughter I used to ride several times a week but it is very difficult once they get to an age where they are too independent for a trailer or seat but not able to ride and keep up on their own bike. This was the perfect solution. She can still ride a big girl bike but not have to pedal as fast or hard or at all to keep up with me and her Dad. Picking the proper fitting and making sure it is secure are the keys to stability (as well as the child). Just a few minutes and we were off and running at normal speed.

      I have had this and used for over a year. It was easy to install and we have not had one issue with it at all. We go on frequent bike rides. So far it has showed no wear. It does have a little bit of a different feel, but it's no issue to ride. It's a ton of fun and my daughter loves it. We're about to buy another one for my younger daughter.

            My three year old daughter has been using the Runabout Trailer for a couple of weeks now on the back of her dad's bike. She loves it and my husband has reported no problems. He says it is easy to pull. We were a little nervous after reading the poor reviews but thought we would take a chance since the price of this trailer is significantly lower than anything else we could find. The addition of this trailer has meant that the whole family now can go on long bike rides which has been fun for all.

              I purchased this item for my 5 year old, now she wont ride her Cars bike. I don't feel the help that they mentioned when she is peddling, I do feel the constant pull to slow us down. I had to get training wheels to help steady us.
              I would consider buying this product again and have told everybody I know about it. We have more fun on our 6 mile bike rides because she can see, not be trapped in the trailer. It makes her feel like a "Big Girl". So for that I LOVE IT........

              Comments about Toys 'R' Us Schwinn Runabout Trailer:

              When spun, the rear wheel would not even make a full rotation on it's own. That pretty much summed up the experience with this product. Trying to bike with my 5 year old son behind was like riding with the brakes on or pulling a concrete block behind me. After 10 miles of this, there was no doubt left in my mind that it was going back.
              As a side note, with a single speed trailer, your child will rarely be able actually help with the pedaling unless you are going extremely slow. With a multi-gear trailer, they can change gears to keep up. That is a feature worth looking for.

              Comments about Toys 'R' Us Schwinn Runabout Trailer:

              After reading many of the bad reviews on this site I took a chance and bought this product anyway. It is a couple hundred dollars less then similar products by Trek or Adams. The bike assembled easily in about 15 minutes with a couple of hex wrenches, an adjustable wrench, and a tire pump. Like in many other reviews the back wheel locked up about about 2 blocks from home on the first ride. I could temporarily unlock the wheel by spinning it in reverse, but the problem persisted. I took the bike home and put it in my bike stand where I got the wheel to lockup again. From there I loosened the nuts on the back sprocket about a 1/2 turn on each side and the wheel started to spin freely. We have been on a few rides totaling about 6-7 miles and have not had any other issues.

              Easy to put together and install on front bike. But there is a lot of wobbling from the trailer, causes the lead bike to be unsteady. Otherwise it is fun and enjoyable.

                  Bought this product in the summer. Used it twice since then. On both occasions, the wheel jammed up or got stuck. My daughter got really scared! This product totally screwed it up because now she will not get on any bicycle at all! Unfortunately, since we already threw away the box, we cannot return it :-(

                    We have a 5 yr old and wanted to go on some longer rides so we purchased this product. Was missing 1 screw when arrived but we took care of that. Was not difficult to put together. Have done multiple trips around the neighborhood (big hills!) and 1 long distance - 10 miles. Has held up well with no issues and our 5 yr old loves it! She had no complaints whatsoever. Have only had for 2 wks but feel we will get plenty of good use out of this product.
