Oh sure, you could be just like every other parent on your block and get your kid a new bike this spring. Ho-hum. Or you could literally harness all that kid energy with this child-sized rickshaw. The choice is yours. (And to answer the question you're asking right now: No, this won't bear the weight of a parent. Unless that parent weighs under 77 lbs.)
Recommended for ages 4 to 8, this rickshaw is made of commercial-gauge tubular steel. It's touted as child-safe... well, as child-safe as any large kid-powered wheeled object can be.
